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.

Excellent Prominent Latakia With Some Citrus, Spice, and Sweetness

I have never had the original CA from of way back. [Tin/bag - Pungent Smokey, tire rubber, coming through the bag and the box it was shipped in. Fades to like a muddy dank horses stall without the poop - maybe some slight old leather. Great mo... Read More

Runs the wife, kids, dogs, cats and bugs off! Good smoke but the above just don't appreciate quality!

It straight punched me in the nose through the ziploc bag, the bubble wrap, the enveloppe and the mailbox. Woke up a week later and stored it in a jar. Anyone who unpreparedly opened the jar experienced the same fate. Smell is of strong spicy/pepp... Read More
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

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

Have you ever been to a barbeque where they put some pecan shells on the coals to add a little nutty sweetness ? If not, try this. A little sweet, a little nutty and a ton of charcoal briquet Latakia. This is Nightcap's daddy.

This is big and bold and in your face a little bit like 965 little bit like nightcap and a little bit like sobranie. it's got it all
Full-flavored, nighttime smoke

This is a little too latakia-forward for my taste, but it is a well-behaved, cool-smoking full English mixture that you will enjoy if you like the Latakia "campfire" experience.
Deserves the name.

This blend, while a little harsh, is an excellent array of flavors. I think some age would do this blend quite well. Iths heavy but not a total lat bomb. The sweet and spicy of the iginia and perique pairs well with the smoky flavor of the Latakia. T... Read More

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

One thing I love about B&M shops is the probability of finding some finely aged tobaccos. I purchased a few ounces bulk at my local b&m shop because when I removed the lid for a whiff the aroma that greeted me was not only rich and incredible, but u... Read More

This is good stuff. Dunhill 965 and Nightcap are my regular smokes and this blend reminds me of Nightcap. This blend though has a slightly creamy, sweet, and spicy taste that Nightcap doesn't have. I think it is closer to Nightcap than 965 but it ... Read 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.

A Stout English

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.

I'm beginning to wonder if every blend that comes from Lane is great ! So far, for me, that's been the case. This Blend Is Pure Awesome ! Thank you ! Update;4/16- This has became my go to blend. I like others too but this, this is my go too !

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.
For sure

Sasieni has lost it's #1 go to position. Lane's C.A. is more satisfying, relaxing never a bite, stays lit with creamy attitude with each draw, in a word just perfect for my taste, it will not be the last sample of Lane's to age in my cellar.

I'm a big if nightcap and mm965. If you're familiar with these blends you may enjoy this as well. I found crown achievement to be a bit milder than nightcap but with a bit more spice. I enjoy a lot of perique in an English blend which this doesn't ... Read More

Continuously in my rotation. Spicy, countered by mellow Latakia and orientals. This is just amazing and a tribute to the blender.

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.

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

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.
