"Gambler Cigarette Tobacco" was my preferred brand (twenty years ago, or thereabouts). I was surprised recently to find it also comes in a pipe tobacco blend. I have yet to try the current purchase as I am still enjoying a prior 1 lb. purchase of another brand purchased locally (from a retail tobacco outlet). Along with my recent purchase of the 1 lb. pkg. of "Gambler Pipe Tobacco" I also purchased a 1 lb. pkg. of "Cherokee Pipe Tobacco." It remains my intention to try the untested (Cherokee) brand prior to trying "Gambler" as the "Cherokee" also comes in a 5 lb. size. A 1 lb. pkg. of pipe tobacco generally last me between (6 to 8 weeks on average), so I don't expect I'll be opening the Gambler until sometime around mid July (possibly even August) of this year (2014). Ask my opinion again then if you like.
