PostSubject: Jim's Peter Heinrichs' Curly Block Review.   Thu May 14, 2015 10:29 pm

The Virginias are very earthy with a fair amount and variety of sweet fermented flavors: brown sugar, tangy dried dark fruits, a drop or two of citrus as well as a touch of grass. The perique is spicy, raisiny, figgy with date overtones. The fermentation process enhances the inherent properties of the tobaccos and creates a harmonious smoking experience that tastes the same from the first puff to the last. Has a medium nic-hit that lasts all the way through. Curly Block reminds me very much of the Murrayís version of Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls, except that this is sweeter and just a little smoother. The block (not plug) of tobacco will take some time to slice and prepare to your personal specifications. Itís moist and some may want to dry it first, though I find it works fine as it is, providing itís packed a little loosely in the bowl. Burns very slow, requires relights, and leaves very little moisture in the bowl if packed with care, so I suggest a little patience for the full experience of what it has to offer. Though you may have to stir the bottom ten percent just a little if you donít use a wide bowl, you can smoke it to a fine ash. The after taste will pleasantly linger. It's not currently available in the United States.

Interesting review.

I wonder if this tobacco will ever be able in the USA.

I enjoy the standard P. Heinrich Curly. I have a couple of 200g tins of curly stashed away aging.

It really sings with about 4-5 years of age on it.

I sure hope so. I have heard that it's hard to produce as well as time consuming, so it may be that they can't make enough of it to have it available to the USA.

I totally agree with you about the Curly. Fresh, it's just average.

Jim thanks for bringing up this old thread. The flyer emailed today by Smoking Pipes listed this tobacco as being available and I was wondering if I'd like it. It sound like this is something I want to try. Thanks again Jim. Smile

It looks good and Jim's review of it is nice. But, that's a wallop at $78 for 250g!!! About double what I feel comfortable spending...

Yeah, just noticed the price myself. That's pretty expensive for 250g IMO. Shocked

Yeah, it is, and I can't afford it either. I'm nursing what's left of the trade sample I have. If it's any consolation, it's a little more expensive ordering it straight from Germany, which was the only way you could get it before. And not counting specials, it's close to the same price by the ounce than Dunhill Navy Rolls, and it's better, too.
