Smoker's Pride - Classic Blend 12oz
Codgerly Light Aro
This is a codger/OTC type burley-based blend which sits at a lower price point than old favorites such as Prince Albert, Carter Hall, Sir Walter, etc. The bag note is strange - a weird, kind of floral and fruity, artificial sort of scent which reminds me a bit of green apple candies and (weirdly enough) lychee ramune soda. Admittedly, it is kind of off-putting. Fortunately, this doesn't really translate much to the taste while smoking, as the predominant topping is a light, creamy vanilla atop a simple Burley with flavors of cocoa and nuts, with a hint of vague fruityness at the edges. It can get a little ashy if smoked hot, but not bitey in my experience. Room note is reportedly not as good as other burleys, according to the Mrs. Overall, if you are a fan of OTCs, this is worth trying, but I don't think it will be replacing Prince Albert for me.

Prince Albert - Prince Albert 14oz
Classic For A Reason
Delicious, simple Burley with a lightly sweet cocoa topping. It's a classic for a reason. The blend components are incorrect - there is no black cavendish in Prince Albert.

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
Smoke it Slowly
Dark, earthy Burley with sweet, plummy perique lingering in the background and hints of spice. Smoke it SLOWLY and you will be rewarded with these delicious flavors. Puff fast and it'll just taste ashy. This blend is for those who know how to smoke a pipe properly.

Ambrosia
To second another reviewer, I would love to see this offered in a 16oz pack. As if the regular Haunted Bookshop wasn't good enough - this stuff will knock your socks off if you love BURLY burleys.

Missouri Meerschaum - Zenon Bent (6mm)
A Wonderful Smoker
Sweet and effortless smoker. No bitter varnish taste like I got with the Ozark hardwood pipes when they were new. This is now one of my favorite pipes. I hope MM keeps making them.
