Great product, very potent. Will order more for blending purposes. This is a great leaf to mix in to other nonaromatics to boost the nicotine levels. I have had best results mixing with Burley or English blends that are lacking in Vitamin N. As long as this is available I will be a loyal customer. Just ordered another half pound, this time I am planning on aging it alongside Perique in the jar, will post back with updates on the results.

Placing another order for the Black Friday Sale. My last batch was phenomenal. I went with my Rustica/Perique blend, but tried Greywolf's suggestion of blending with the Virginia. Added that to my blend, and the end result was even better. The Virginia really helped it get a good burn ratio and added another subtle flavor that rears its head from puff to puff. Thanks for the advice! I used 1lbs of Rustica, 1/4lbs of Virginia Organic and 7oz of Perique. Talk about a strong nicotine buzz!

This is a wonderful product. I cut it up with scissors at first but ordered the standard shredder for ease of smoke-ability. I puff on this straight for an intense experience or as a blend with other organic tobaccos. Tastes great on its own and I enjoy the extra nicotine in the cheeks and throat. Warning: Do not inhale any product containing Rustica!!! This should be used only in pipes and cigars.

3rd Review of my 3rd Order. I cannot keep myself from coming back to this. This is truly wonderful tobacco, please never stop selling this. I have heavily cut down on Pipe/Cigar smoking since CBD Hemp was legalized, and I have purchased an Arizer Solo dry vape. I get even more pleasure out of this Rustica, by mixing it with CBD Hemp, and using it in my dry vaporizer. The taste and smell is better than smoking, and its more efficient for effects, with far less chemicals being formed. This mix, has actually helped me quit longcut dipping tobacco entirely, which was something I struggled with for years, as well as cutting out E-Cig Nicotine Salts, which are not as safe as dry vaping. I still smoke my clay/briar pipes, 1-2 a month, but no longer every day/week. I really hope your Rustica lines expand, I would love to see other varieties/grades of Rustica available, would be amazing for wrapper grade to make potent CBD Hemp Flower blunts for when you really need to kick back and relax.
