While manufactured by U.S. Flue-Cured, the only thing 1839 says about their blends is that they incorporate US grown flue-cured (Virginia) tobacco as part of their blend. Available in Full Flavor, Mild and Exotic. Reported to be $17-20LB

Searching for a SHTF tobacco to store, found this at the local reservation. Says Pipe Tobacco but rolls nice, long shag and best of all very smooth and pleaseant tasting. Would highly recommend for RYO community.[ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ topic | top ]

Hi everyone. I am the designer of 1839. I work for Flue-Cured, and as you have mentioned, this is indeed a new product. As for the exotic, at present, there is no intention to ship any. After coming up with the blend, which is apple flavored, we decided there wasn't much of a market for it. As for the stem content you mentioned, I'll look into that, as we do not use any stem in the product. It's not impossible that some managed to find its way in there, but it is not an ingredient. If you folks are interested, feel free to sign up at our forums on the 1839ryo.com website. As the project leader, I want to ensure that our customers are enjoying the product. We are open to constructive critique, so any thoughts, comments, praises, etc are certainly welcome. Also, we even made the bags for the exotic, as well as the blend, so if you guys can help me convince others that we might sell some, I might be able to have a limited run of it produced. Also, please feel free to e-mail me with any comments. Thanks again for using our product! Also, as one last note, you all might be interested in. We are a Co-Op, meaning our profits are largely returned to the very farmers that grew the tobacco in your bag of 1839. So every bag you buy, DIRECTLY helps American farmers. Thanks again everyone![ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ top ]

Thanks for the information. I'm sure that you can be of help to those wishing to know more. Please do come back often, and feel welcome! Also feel free to ask questions. On this site we all share one thing; the enjoyment of tobacco whether rolled, or injected into a tube. Mike[ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ top ]

I did try the 1839 full flavor and found it too strong for my tastes(but I love Sampson and Jester so go figure) unless I stuff it in a light tube. Close in taste to my old Winston ff(again, ymmv)and the mild in a ff tube ain't half bad either. For some reason here in the Peoples Republic of Michigan, they don't seem to have the Exotic blend I saw on the 1839 site. Just menthol,mild and full.[ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ top ]

Just tried some 1839 mild and was quite supprised at just how good it is. Stuffed in a El Rey ff tube it comes close to a Winston light to my tastes. It's coarse cut and a little dry but injects well burns cool and clean and smells great.[ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ top ]
$7.69 for a 6 oz. bag in a local shop here in Michigan so the price is fair. I have yet to try the Full Flavor and the Exotic(turkish?) but if it's as good as the Mild, this stuff will replace the custom blend I get as my every day smoke.

Never heard of it but a few minutes searching shows it's new. I assume you're the same Zig that posted a review on the 1839 website? A little more info is at: www.1839ryo.com[ reply | link ] to this. Go to [ top ]
