Lane Limited: Crown Achievement 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-634-0001

This rare mixture is composed of the finest Latakia, Virginia, Perique, and Oriental tobaccos. Crown Achievement contained Perique in its original form, but this element was removed circa 2004. Lane has once again added Perique, as per the original recipe (tracked down by Leonard Wortzel) to faithfully recreate the storied Crown Achievement of old.

English Crown or Balkan achievement?
June 20, 2018
Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
This is as good a review as any to visit the English/Balkan debate. I'm not saying I'm right, but here's how I use the terms: both English and Balkan blends have VA, Latakia and orientals (I know Latakia is an oriental too, stay with me here...). To ... Read More

Flavorful, balanced, and smooth burning. It was my favorite in the 70s and continues to be today.
A Truly Great Blend

A different Jerry L. with a different opinion. I was mesmerized by the whole story of this reintroduction of Lane Crown Achievement when it first came out... from Leonard Wortzel's super-sleuth work to the ferreting out of recipes, original machines,... Read More
Excellent strong English

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
This tobacco is very good after giving it some age. Open the tin and let it sit for a couple of weeks. You will be rewarded with a very good stronger english blend with a nice plummy taste.

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
I tried this once a few years ago in bulk. Great stuff. Just tried it for the 2nd time in the tin.. good about 3/4 the way down. Left a taste in my mouth that I consider as less than pleasing. Almost chemically. A disappointment, indeed. A Balkan tha... Read More

Very dry, twiggy

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
I bought 2 tins and have only opened one tin at this point. The tin was sealed and I was very surprised by how dry it was and even more surprised by the amount of stems. They weren't large but plentiful. Didn't pack well and burnt quickly. Taste was ... Read More

This is a great blend, smoked well and had good taste. I'll definitely buy more.

I am no conoisseur of pipe tobacco--more or less a newcomer, but I like this blend. I like Three Nuns; similarly this tobacco burns well with no bite and has excellent flavor.

About time Lane got something right. This stuff is pretty darn good and is fast becoming my go to English blend.
Excellent

My recent order included a couple tins of Crown Achievement. Very nice tin quality, unusual clear stiff plastic insert to hold the tobacco firm and retain moisture. Probably the best packaging I have seen. The tobacco comes at just the right dampnes... Read More
Good English
August 12, 2016
Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
Lane has improved much from the 70's. The CA is a good English mixture. Taste is even and it smokes smoother starting about half way through the smoke. It burns evenly all the way to the bottom. It is up there with other good English mixtures inc... Read More
A Stout English
February 09, 2016
Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
I don't know if it was a last batch from the bulk crate but for me it was a stout English with some complex notes of Orientals and something else. Yet, I enjoyed it. Comparable to Dunhill's My Mixture 965 without the pungent taste.
Nice mixture

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
Great quality out of the tin and smokes terrific. Taste is on the mellow side of the latakia blends of similar construction. Cant go wrong with this blend, no complaints and will buy again.

suberb, one of my favourites. Spicy, yet mellow, full of satisfying flavour. I like everything about this suberb blend. Highly recommended.
Not for me.

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
Maybe I just got a bad tin, but it had no discernible tin note, was extremely dry, and tasted harsh with an acrid aftertaste. I typically like Lane blends, but this was just bad.

Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
I certainly dont think Lane is kidding when they say they chose the finest tobaccos because the ones in this mixture really did taste like premium choices. I would also agree with Doug R.'s assessment that its improved with a little age. My subsequ... Read More
Pretty good blend
April 01, 2014
Product: Lane Limited Crown Achievement 1.75oz
A smoky BBQ smell from opening, nice smooth round notes with Orientals coming forward but not as much as in Bosphorus cruise, and with the latakia playing back a bit not too much but i can detect it here and there. Nothing like 3 oaks but a good smo... Read More
