Lane Limited: Crown Achievement

Product Number: 005-006-0016

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
Excellent

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

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 a nice smoke. It’s not the best English that i have had but its very very nice. Subtle and very tasty. If i cant get my hands on the full English dark blend then this would be my number 2 for sure. Just a very very nice smoke (if you like... 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 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. I will have to try the tin hoping it will be a better sample. Comparable to Dunhill'... Read More

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.
Nice afternoon smoke

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

When I first received this tobacco, the first few bowls exhibited a somewhat harsh but pleasantly complex taste. However, I had put some down in glass jars, tightly sealed, for future use. After a year, the tobacco has mellowed, and also sweetened ... Read More

Lane's Crown Achievement was one of my favorite tobaccos about 20 years ago. After a hiatus, I returned to pipe smoking about 10 years ago and tried to buy some more of this tobacco. Alas, it was no longer available. Flash forward to the present. I h... Read More
