Warped - The Haunting 2oz
Wow. I was surprised by the instant peppery spice. Leather. I’ll smoke what I’ve got but I doubt I’ll get more.
Cornell & Diehl - Crooner 2oz
I didn’t know what to make of the funky tin note but surprisingly this is a very cool smooth smoke. Highly recommended and I’ll purchase more!
Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding 8oz
Perfectly balanced. I prefer a little more Latakia but this is delicious!
Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
Very nice tin note. Moist but not overly so. After the charring light smokes smooth and creamy without any bite. It’s very mild and the rum punch is barely noticeable but adds a nice sweetness. All in all a very pleasant smoke and could be an all day smoke. Aromatic or English? Who cares!
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
This is a wet, sticky, goopy, delicious mess. The tin note is amazing and it smokes smooth without any bite. I’m not usually a fan of aromatics but if you’re looking for one I doubt you’ll do better than this.
Rattray's - Jocks Mixture 100g
This might be my new favorite smoke! The latakia really shines
Peterson - Standard Mixture 50g
This is the perfect English blend. It is perfectly balanced. Highly recommended!
G. L. Pease - Odyssey 2oz
Not as full as I remember. Needs to be smoked in a very large bowl for full enjoyment. Overall a nice balanced blend but I prefer more latakia flavor. Perhaps it needs to age a bit.
Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Just A Friend
I'm not usually a fan of Drew Estates offerings but this is like nothing I've ever tasted. Hickory and peaty it's one of my favorites.
