5 Brothers is a classic blend of loose cut Virginia Burley tobacco. It's powerful, but that's intentional. And thanks to minimal casing, the flavor is almost entirely pure tobacco. If you're looking for a straight, no-nonsense tobacco (at an extremely affordable price), 5 Brothers is calling.
“The description is dead on! Great full-flavor, very clean burn. The lack of casings means a goop-free smoke. Reminds me of the old-style "Drum". Tobacco flavored tobacco...gotta love it!”

“This is a love it or hate it kind of blend. It's strong. STRONG! Yet, somehow, it maintains a mild-medium flavor despite the high nicotine. This is a shag cut pipe tobacco truly meant for the pipe. The lack of additives and the extremely fine cut means it can burn fast, burn hot, and dry out in the blink of an eye. If you handle it carefully, it can offer a flavor similar to your standard Prince Albert or Carter Hall type blend, while offering a strength more like Irish Flake and a burn time much less than you'd expect. My only complaint is that it comes painfully dry more often than not. If you want to smoke from the pouch, throw in a humidifier disc. Personally, I usually have some on hand (I love strong tobacco whether in my pipe or as a cigar), and when I open a pouch I rehumidify it slightly and jar it up in a mason jar to keep it springy. In this state, it will keep indefinitely and dry to desired level of moisture in a matter of minutes.
This is an exceptionally simple and monotonous blend, often compared to cigarettes (though oddly despite the flavor and cut, I think it makes terrible cigarettes). As a pipe tobacco I enjoy it, but many do not. At this price, I suggest taking a gamble. For those trying to get away from smoking cigarettes, it can be a great way for a quick nic fix without inhaling. Just make sure not to overheat it, and smoke it slow to avoid bite.”
