Good and reasonable price.
I love it fresh out of the bag. It really goes good with Gin. I always pick up a bag of it, along with my other regular items that I buy from Thompsons Cigar.

Excellent Value
We use it to make cigarettes with Hot Rod super menthol tubes. Great combination, and costs about 10% of buying store bought.

Sparrow Blend No 23 Green Menthol
I am a Menthol smoker for many years and started rolling my own not long ago. I started with few other pipe tobacco brands until I found Sparrow No. 23 Menthol. I bought 16 oz bag and I fell in love with the icy flavor. I told myself that this is it and will not look any farther. I bought the second 16 oz bag but to my disappointment, it tastes very different from the first purchase. It was too strong and perhaps no menthol at all. It does gave me a sore throat! Bought another 3 bags, 16 oz and luckily, the flavor turned out like the first bag. I love it:) Bought another 4 bags, 16 oz and guessed what...they all tastes horrible. Zero, zip, nada menthol flavor at all and it has too strong tobacco flavor for me. Why are they very inconsistent in manufacturing this product? I am very disappointed and stuck with qty 4, 16 onces horribly flavored Sparrow No 23 menthol. Time to switch to a different brand and will never look back to any Sparrow brand again.

What a bite!
WOW! The menthol in this blend is powerful! It's a little strong for me, so I put a base of amaretto/mild mix in the bowl first, then pack in the Sparrow menthol #23. The bottom mix softens the blow of the potent menthol, making it a nice smooth pipe.

Horrible As A Pipe Tobacco
This is not a pipe tobacco and sites devoted to pipe smoking will not even review it as such. Great for rolling filtered menthol cigarettes (as previous reviews would indicate), but if you are a pipe smoker even this bargan price (I bought a a brick-and-moprtar shop and paid almost this much for only 6 ounces) will leave you feeling like you got the short end of the stick. As a pipe tobacco, this is not even functional and no pipe smoker would consider it such. I would definitely roll a filtered cig with it though.

Not What I Expected
Let me start with the biggest positive I can see: The tobacco burns well and evenly; it does not easily go out, yet does not burn too fast. The burn rate is near perfect. Unfortunately, that's all this product delivers if you are looking for an actual "pipe" smoking experience. The bag does not state that this is a menthol blend and describes a "smooth" smoking experience. Although the letters are green, in a dimply lit cigar shop one does not notice the green lettering until the purchase is made. Add to this a clerk who knows nothing of pipe tobacco and I made a 6 ounce mistake. Fortunately it was not an expensive one, as Sparrow is cost-effective if nothing else. The flavor is far from the smooth smoking experience promised on the bag. "Intense" or "Icy" would have been far better descriptors. Were I rolling my own filtered cigarettes this would be a great value. As it stands, the menthol is too in-your-face and overpowering to make for a good smoke from a pipe or unfiltered. For the record I smoked Kools and Newports for years including Kool Regular (unfiltered), so I am not unfamiliar with or averse to strong menthol flavors. Were the use for rolling my own filter cigs I may give this four stars (the tobacco itself lacks a certain depth of flavor but for the price it delivers). However, this advertises itself as a "smooth, aromatic, pipe smoking experience". If this is what you are looking for, you will be in for a rude awakening. Bottom line: 4 Stars for rolling filtered cigs. 1 Star as an actual pipe tobacco. As this IS a PIPE TOBACCO I am giving 1 star on my review. Again, if you are looking for a cost effective alternative for rolling your own smokes I would highly recommend this. If you smoke something like Salem with no flavor depth and a very high-pitched menthol this is for you. If you smoked something with depth of flavor in the tobacco but an icy, high pitch menthol like Camel or Marlboro Menthol, you will probably still really enjoy this. Those who smoke Kools, Newports and cigarettes with flavor profiles that are both deep with regard to the tobacco and deliver rich and pungent menthol, you may not be as keen on this tobacco, but it will suffice and you should still somewhat enjoy it. Plus, this is a GREAT value for cigarette rolling. I would dare venture pipe smokers of almost any variety will find this blend horribly unsatisfying if you actually smoke it from a pipe - Even if your pipe has a filter!

Sparrow Blend No 23 Menthol Tobacco
I roll my on cigarettes using SPARROW BLEND NO 23 Menthol Tobacco and using my cigarette rolling machine that I bought on [@]. This pipe tobacco taste as good or better than regular cigarette tobacco. I sometimes alternate this method with buying 2 cartons of SMOKER'S BEST Filtered Cigarillo Menthol, but it's price went from [$] recently and the Sparrow Blend, 16 ounces is only $11.99 and rolls many cigarettes. I keep several bags on hand all the time. Thanks to Thompson Cigar for this product and the easy check out and fast shipping. I rate Thompson Cigar as excellant and honest and fast and highly recommend them to everyone....
