"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.
In the past I have smoked light cigarettes. But with ryo I discovered all the light tubes have white filters which can sometimes have bleach in them for whiteness and the paper they use stick to my lips. So I feel I need to buy the full flavor tubes for these problems. I would love to see a light filter tube that is white. Until now I can't find any in the 100's. I use the full flavor and add 1 hole near the filter to make them lighter along with using a mild tobacco. Doing this, I really like the Gambler 100 full flavor tubes!
