"I've made it a rule to never smoke more than one cigar at a time." Mark Twain
The enjoyment of pipe tobacco is much like wet shaving. Both hobbies place an emphasis on the “experience” in that there is a ritual component surrounding the product, going far beyond their practical use. The start of this ritual is the savouring of the smell of raw tobacco, carefully examining the nuances much like enjoying the scent of a soap “off the puck”. Then there is the removal of yourself from the troubles of the day, taking your time, relaxing often reflecting: a full appreciation of the experience. Finally, both hobbies have strong online presences, sharing reviews, useful tips, and of course, a sense of community.
Many tobacco scents treat the tobacco as a supporting character in a larger theme and this is done with great success. The approach here, however, is to treat the tobacco itself as a whole. Mimicking the rich, multi faceted nuances of cured tobacco blends one may buy from the tobacconist. Depending on the blend, sometimes you can pick up notes of coffee or vanilla, chocolate or plum, mild citrus or even a hint of butterscotch. As such, MacDuff's uses these notes as the basis of this most recent version of Trail Tobacco (Fall 2021), including the addition of tobacco absolute, gauaicwood, buddhawood, cypriol, sandalwood absolute, and a slight hint of chocolate.
Available in a plastic large dish (soap weight is 120g) with enough room to work the brush around. This is a softer soap. Brush lathering works but is easy to overload!
