Ribbon cut. $11 for 2 oz tin.
A rich aroma, heady and vibrant, envelopes you.
Dark sweetness, laced with tones of leather and subtle spice,
rises up from a gentle ember, illuminating the surrounding darkness.
As the tiny coal fades, the fragrance lingers, its phantom tendrils curling,
beckoning you further into the returning shadows.

Conjured by the diabolical minds of Warped Cigars' founder and President, Kyle Gellis, and Jeremy Reeves, Head Blender of Cornell & Diehl pipe tobacco, The Haunting is comprised of the finest Virginia tobaccos and AA grade Dominican Criollo cigar leaf, the same varietal that Warped uses in many of their staple cigar lines. It's the first pipe tobacco from Warped, and upholds Kyle's reputation for prioritizing strict standards, quality components, and nuanced flavors.

Aligning well with Warped's "be exclusively different" mantra, The Haunting is unlike many other cigar leaf-based pipe tobaccos, which often contain Latakia — instead, The Haunting consists primarily of cigar leaf and Virginia tobaccos, showcasing the delicious cigar notes and complementary sweetness of the Virginias. It's a blend that bridges the gap between cigars and pipes, catering to cigar and pipe smokers alike.

I was due for another order, so I added a couple tins of this to my order and pulled the trigger.

I'd like to try this. And I usually don't say that about new blends.

I'm smoking my first bowl of this now.

I gotta say that other cigar leaf blends have left me wanting mor cigar flavor (McClelland Dominican Glory, GLP Robusto).

For this blend however, there is no doubt about the cigar leaf right from first light.

It seems to burn nicely with distinct cigar flavor (I wouldn't go so far as to say "full" cigar flavor). There are some hints of cedar, and a slight sweetness (topping? perhaps not).

This definitely hits my cigar "happy place" in a way I've not experienced before with pipe tobacco.

I ordered 2 tins. I plan to order more.

Was this a limited release, or do they plan to make more of this?

Just saw this. Missed out, as it's gone. I shall smoke it vicariously through the members of CPS

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Great stuff. Smoking my second bowl of it now, as michigander so graciously tobacco fairy'd me with a sample. I like that they kept it fairly simple as far as component tobaccos go - just virginia and cigar leaf (and of course, some kind of mild topping, I'm sure). The other blends I have smoked which contained cigar leaf seemed to be more of a kitchen sink variety.
