Ashton - Artisan's Blend 50g
Outstanding English Blend
Pretty close to being the perfect English pipe tobacco.The only negative I can come up with is that it is not available in bulk.
Arango - Balkan Supreme
Great Blend, Great Bargain
Arango went all in on a single blend and it is a winner. I have been working my way through the English pipe tobacco landscape and Balkan Supreme is at the top of my list. Not only is it a very satisfying, rich and flavorful smoke but the bulk pricing makes it a true bargain. If you are a fan of English pipe blends you owe it to yourself to give this one a try.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - Dunhill Pipe Wipe
Best Polishing Cloth
I have used several brands of polishing cloths but none have come close to matching the Dunhill's performance or longevity. The only negative is how seldom this product is available. Here's hoping it makes another appearance soon.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - John Aylesbury Red & Black Pipe Tool
Nice Design, Well-built
At first glance, this pipe tool reminded me of a fishing lure. Its sleek and slender design, however, belies the solid construction of the tool.It feels great in the hand and its length will reach the deepest of briar bowls. Best of all is the satisfying way that both the pick and pipe scraper snap into place when opened or closed. Although I find it to be just a bit too hefty for carrying in my pocket it has been my go-to tool at home since I purchased it. Highly recommended!
