AK Gold RYO Tobacco
Without a doubt the best-selling tobacco in our whole roll your own tobacco range, our customers can’t get enough of its mild strength and simple, natural-tasting flavour.

In fact, it’s the most popular product in the shop and on the website too – we let those numbers do the talking!

    A very nice, mild smoke. Very smooth. If this is what you like, it’s for you!

  2. Cathy (verified owner)

    Nice and smooth. Not a chemical taste you get with some tobacco.

  3. David Willers (verified owner)

    the only baccy worth smoking

    • Maisie

      Thanks for your feedback about our AK Gold RYO tobacco, it’s one of our favourites too.

  4. Sam (verified owner)

    Since started on this brand, I despise smoking anything else.

    • Maisie

      Thanks for your feedback. Good to hear that you like our AK Gold.

  5. grayzbiz (verified owner)

    No problem switching from GV yellow, AK Gold is a lovely mild smoke.

    • Maisie

      Thanks for your feedback. Good to hear you’re happy with your switch to AK Gold.

  6. Janet Wright (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this tobacco for about a year now and found this to be very smooth. The only fault I would mention, if you could call it a fault, is that for a couple of my orders the tobacco has seemed very greasy and hasn’t drawn well at all when being smoked. I can only imagine that it was a new delivery and hadn’t had time to dry out as much as usual. Having said that the tobacco is never dry and ordinarily rolls and draws very well.

    • Maisie

      Thanks for taking the time to give feedback on our AK Gold. As with all our loose tobacco, the moisture level varies and a new batch will contain more moisture. We suggest that you let the tobacco dry out a bit before smoking it and that should sort it out.

  7. Cliff (verified owner)

    I’m glad I can still buy this tobacco easily and regularly by getting it from you.
    It’s the lightest hand rolling tobacco I know.

    • Maisie

      Thanks for your review and for being one of our regular customers, it’s much appreciated from all at Johnny’s.

  8. Nigel (verified owner)

    A really mellow, smooth smoke, very enjoyable.

    • Maisie

      Thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear you’re enjoying our AK Gold.

  9. Eva Tombs (verified owner)

    The best tobacco ever. Tastes like I grew it myself, so pure and natural. If I cant stop smoking…I’ll stick to this one from now on.

  10. robertankeow (verified owner)

    Nice one. First tried the menthol version while it was legal and then changed to this. I like the smell as I open the pack and it keeps well, which is important to me as I don’t smoke a lot, though as mentioned elsewhere you may need to actually let it dry a little before use so it draws well. I’m well stocked now in case the government use the present situation as an excuse to do some other loony thing.

  11. Jules (verified owner)

    Old enough to remember 3 Castles! and this tobacco surpassed my expectations. Smooth pleasant smoke. Rolls well and draws well. Would highly recommend. Service was great too.

  12. Arthur (verified owner)

    Great tobacco..would never go back to the much strong commercial brands..also awsome shop to deal with..helpful and very friendly..thankyou

  13. Tom Blankley (verified owner)

    Smooth enjoyable smoke, great for rolling. Finely cut

  14. Angela Hayes (verified owner)

    A very nice smooth and mellow smoke with no harsh aftertaste.

  15. Angela Hayes (verified owner)

    Excellent tobacco. Smooth, mellow, mild and gives a most enjoyable smoke.

  16. harvey_weston1 (verified owner)

    Damn good tobacco

  17. Hugh (verified owner)

    Excellent smoke, so glad I found it. I used to smoke Three Castles many years ago and actually prefer AK Gold
    I shall not be going back to the commercial brands

  18. Jonathan Wharton (verified owner)

    Great taste and quick delivery.

  19. Stella Ashley (verified owner)

    I bought this to mix with the medium which was a wee bit strong for me – now it’s fine.

  20. Lee Jones (verified owner)

    Excellent mild smoke. The best around

  21. Merve Goulding (verified owner)

    High-quality tobacco, quick delivery, great customer support.
    If you prefer a more defined tobacco taste, try blending AK Gold with AK Medium. 2x Gold blended with 1x Medium makes a tasty blend.

  22. Rutl (verified owner)

    Probably the nicest tobacco I’ve ever tried. Perfectly mild. Lovely stuff

  23. Kathleen FORTH (verified owner)

    Great tobacco, lovely taste

  24. Jack Eason (verified owner)

    While it was nice, I have to say, compared to my favourite AK Dark (Malawi Leaf), it lacked something…

  25. Cybercel (verified owner)

    Once you get used to this different tobacco you will be glad, as loads less chemicals added. I bag what I use for a couple of days and store the rest away so it doesn’t dry out.

  26. V A P (verified owner)

    This tobacco is clean smooth and very mild. After smoking amber leaf blonde I was looking for a same level of smoke and ak gold delivers just that but without the chemical harshness. Perfect hand rolling tobacco.

  27. Jemma (verified owner)

    Perfect for switching from menthol cigarettes. We use them with Sharrow menthol filter tips. I’ve tried so many options since the ban. This is by far the best. Smoother & more satisfying than any menthol cigarettes I tried back in the day. To make it extra tasty we often use the Cherry & Vanilla Tobacco Spray, & Juicy Jay’s Very Cherry papers, all from Johnnys.

  28. Roz Jacqueline

    Great quality and quantity of Ak Gold tobacco. Very smooth smoke and I am very pleased with my purchase. No problems with delivery.

  29. Simon Goldiing (verified owner)

    Wonderful old school tobacco with few additives and a very smooth smoke.

  30. Lynne Caldecott (verified owner)

    I bought this for my boyfriend (he used to smoke Three Castles, a long time ago!), he said it’s excellent. We’ll be back soon.

  31. Eddie Atkinson (verified owner)

    I have had this before & I have forgotten this is, I will be buying again.

  32. Graeme MacDonald (verified owner)

    Great product, used it for a few years and can’t get in my area now. Perfect

  33. christiana adams (verified owner)

    as soon as I read “remember Three Castles hand rolling tobacco,” I had to try this bacci ! and yes it is very similar and is mild and is a really lovely smoke seemingly without the harshness of lots of chemicals. I’m so glad I found your site as I would not have discovered this great bacci . Good delivery too!

    Smells good, nice golden colour and doesn’t leave a nasty chemical aftertaste.
