Black Ambrosia is again one of those so aromatic pipe tobaccos that they are almost candylike. It is very, very sweet. It is a bit more refined than Sweet Killarney, but definitely very candylike. I would not want to smoke this kind of tobacco all the time, but it is nice now and then.
Back in the old days when I was too young to smoke legally, I used to smoke Marlboro Red cigarettes. Almost every guy in our class did. Later I tried Smart cigarettes, which had a much softer taste and changed brands immediately. Then I switched back and forth between factory-made Smart cigarettes and RYO Smart until I found my current smoking habits. When I saw Marlboro Red rolling tobacco in a tobacco store, I decided to refresh memories. It tasted just as I remembered the cigarettes tasted, dry and stingy. It has a too strong stingy taste to be mixed with most pipe tobaccos, but Black Ambrosia is aromatic enough so that the Marlboro flavour does not taste under it. So I do not have to throw the Marlboro pouch away.
