Manufacturer Description:
Selected sweet Virginias with a small pinch of Perique and classically refined with Caribbean Rum were matured for a long time in the press. The result is a dark brown, full-bodied, light and sweet pipe tobacco in traditional way, which will take you on a pleasantly cool and soft smoking experience. Unlike an ordinary flake tobacco it was not sliced, but  packaged in a brick as a true "Plug Tobacco". Enjoy it from pipes with smaller bowl.

In a well-designed pouch of the Salty Dogs comes as a small, compact block of pressed tobacco. This plug is black-brown with some golden inclusions in the cut surface. Its fragrance is tasty, but points with its fruity notes of dried fruit rather than of Caribbean rum. Then plug tobacco in the opened package barely dries out, so it is recommended to leave the taken slices to dry slightly before smoking.

Compared to other plugs the Salty Dogs is very flexible and can be easily cut with a sharp knife. Plugs invite you to experiment and you should do so until you have found your preferred method of preparation. So you can cut small flakes of the desired thickness, this - if you want to  - rub out into a Mixture or cutting the flakes in long strips and then crosswise into cubes and so get an own cube-cut. Then you can plug it according to their preparation, you should be careful not to plug too hard as the compressed tobacco tends to rise during kindling. A few incurred tobacco crumbs as the top layer facilitate the kindling.

Light up:
If you have the Salty Dogs not plugged too tight, the tobacco can be ignited quite easily and keep on fire. After the first flame you can go with the tamper smoothing over the surface, then relighting and enjoy a uniform embers until the end of the filling.

Smoking  properties:
The Salty Dogs smokes after the expenses of the preparation, pleasantly uncomplicated. Even smoked avid it does not bite or gargle. Of course you should enjoy it comfortably, so it serves fruity-sweet flavor notes reminiscent no accident in rum-soaked raisins. Here the added flavor supports the natural flavors of the rather sweet Virginias, to which the pinch of Perique contributes a hint of spice. For a plug of tobacco it is quite mild and thus friendly to beginners. Back merely remains somewhat dark gray ash and a few unburned tobacco residues, causing together with the almost non-existent condensate, only little work in cleaning.

The room note of the Salty Dogs is sweet and should not stand out in society, which feels not disgraced by typicall pipe smoke.

The Salty Dogs is a black and brown tobacco in shape of a plug. This shape assumes that the smoker takes a bit more elaborate preparation on what is possible thanks to the not so heavy pressure, with a little practice and enjoyment of experimenting. Stuffed with some care the Salty Dogs is to smoke easy and uncomplicated. Its pleasant aroma and for a plug tobacco unusual mildness make it an ideal entry-level tobacco for those who want to familiarize themselves with this very original form of tobacco and may shy away from the sometimes almost legendary strong twists and plugs. But for lovers of strong plugs which may sometimes desire a gentle pleasures, the Salty Dogs is just right.

I just wanted to add an update to my previous review, as I think I mentioned, this is a very slow burning and cool in the pipe, tobacco, I normally smoke this in a very small bowl as it lasts a long time and towards the end I notice that this is just slightly over the medium mark in taste and strength, well tonight I fired up a pipe of Salty Dogs in a Peterson 150 straight Bulldog, a pipe much bigger than I generally use for plug tobacco's, I had a half hour to kill before a documentary came on that I wanted to watch, so with the pipe already loaded l read for a little while, documentary came on and was duly watched during the course of which 3 relights were required, shortly after the programme ended, so did my pipe, it had been burning for just over one and a half hours, as I said, this is slow burning stuff. Now firmly in rotation, this is a tobacco I have started cellaring, I can't wait to see what it will be like in two or three years.

Not overly fond of vaper's but loving plugs, I approached this with a little trepidation, the reviews on tobacco reviews highly recommended this and I was pleasantly surprised, this must be one of the easiest plugs to handle, even after a week of being opened, the Virginias come to the fore with the perique playing only a supporting role and the rum adding to the sweetness, it's easy to see why this is one of Estervals top sellers. The nicotine strength is only just a shade over medium making this an all day smoke and one I will be stocking up on. Just as a note, I ordered this on a Thursday, it was in my hot sweaty little hands on Tuesday, here in England, superb service, thank you Estervals, top marks.
