The Beloved HGL.
November 12, 2016
Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
This is one of the Lane treasures. Mr. Lane's favorite. A very lightly sweet recipe with a a touch of the Latakia for spice. The balance between light sweet and light smokey make this a must have. The aroma is enchanting.

The combination of Latakia and aromatic compliment each other perfectly. I can't imagine anyone being offended by the smell except, perhaps those who are intent on being offended. The tobacco burns cool with plenty of smoke at a reasonable rate. Ther... Read More

With the demise of McClelland a self proclaimed "old codger" recommended I try blends that have stood the test of time and that are at very little risk of going anywhere saying "just cause they have been there forever does not mean the... Read More
An Aromatic I Can Enjoy
March 16, 2018
Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
To me, 99% of all aromatics basically taste like warm steam. Sure they smell great, but I can't get any pleasure out of smoking them. This stuff, however, actually tastes like tobacco! This is a winner in my book, because not only does it smell good,... Read More
Lane Latakia done well

Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
My buddy introduced this to me. I started to disparage that Lane would have something with some English to it. Then, he gave me a bowl of this. It had all of the smokey goodness I love in Latakia forward blends (English), but it had the nice smooth ... Read More

I received a sample of this from my local tobacco shop and to be honest I wasn't really expecting much. Lo and behold, I was pleasantly surprised. I do enjoy cross-over type English blends and I found this to be a very nice, well balanced smoke. A li... Read More

I received a sample baggy of this with a recent order placed with and a big thank you goes out to them for it! A mixture of black and tan leaf with a nice, low-key Latakia aroma with some background sweetness. As I'm not a huge fan ... Read More
Never Disappoints

Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
HGL is one of my go to blends. It is probably my favorite aro/English crossover blends on the market today. It has the great taste of a burly and black cavendish, vanilla aromatic with just the right amount of latakia smokiness added. It smokes cool ... Read More
Lane Limited's answer to a Latakia-free Captain Black line.

You have to take things you read or see online with a grain of salt, but long before I ventured online to check my thinking, I had come to the realization that there were certain Captain Black/Lane Limited equivalents. Namely CBW (Original) was the s... Read More

but I recently felt that I should give latakia another try (I swore off of it a while back and haven't had the nose for it till recently). I was a little apprehensive of the aroma when I received this in the mail as I could smell the bbq smokey smell... Read More
Mr. Lane's Own

Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
Yes, Mr. Lane created HGL specifically for himself. HGL is RLP-6 with Latakia, and should be tried by every pipe smoker. It's a sweetly smoky/vanilla fragrant mixture. It has a nutmeg, vanilla, dark cocoa nuance that goes well with the slightly s... Read More

I love 1 Q, I love English blends. I was sure that this would be the be all, end all for me. Kramer's A Blend For Cary Grant is a favorite of mine, so anything listed as an "English Aromatic" will at least pique my interest. It smelled i... Read More
Great English Aro

Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
The best comparison I can make to this is Sutliff Match Early Morning Pipe. Where Match EMP gives me hints of toasted marshmallow, HGL gives me hints of vanilla. If you are looking for a good English aro, or 1-q is a bit too aromatic for you, this i... Read More
Decent english aro but missing something
May 19, 2019
Product: Lane Limited HGL Bulk
Transitioning to english mixtures, I discovered english aromatics. After seeing all the reviews for HGL decided to give it a go. No tongue bite despite puffing a bit fast. Could maybe use a bit of drying time since it did gurgle once. The opening is ... Read More

This was great. Rich, sweet, and smoky without being overpowering. Smoked cool and fairly dry. A definite on the favorites list.
Lovely aromatic!

I really just don't do aromatics, I probably have 3 or 4 on a shelf of about 50 different English Blends, I ordered this on a whim, smoked 3 bowls and immediately ordered more! Can not say enough good things about this Blend.

Mild toung bite, not a lot of flavor

Mild, very mild... too mild maybe. Smells good tastes like vanilla and burns without a fuss but (and there is always a but with aromatics) it is not for me.

I really like this latakia blend it's not too strong I want to enjoy the latakia without getting blasted away and this fits the bill
