Lane Limited - BCA
This blend is pretty magnificent, enjoyable on its own and as a blending agent to help cool off and sweeten other blends.

Cool smokes and no flavor loss
I really enjoy using these in my hardwood MM pipes. The help cool the aromatics that I smoke and I haven't noticed any difference of flavor when I smoke without them. So might as well use them and enjoy the cooling effects.

Introduction to latakia
This was my first try at a latakia blend, first impression was a very sour note. My guess is the rum topping is overpowering so much so that I could barely notice the smokiness from the latakia. Maybe it's my virgin pallette but I'm still on the fence about this blend. It is a smooth and cool smoke but the room note is harsher than the rating would suggest, wife was not a fan and she has enjoyed others I have smoked.
Cornell & Diehl - Granby Station
All aboard! This instantly jumped to the front of my rotation. My first taste of perique as well and I was craving another bowl after I finished.
Lane Limited - 1-Q
She was my first
Started my pipe smoking career with what is widely regarded as one best aromatics. I was not disappointed, very smooth, cool, and relaxing smoke and wife loved the aroma enough to let me smoke inside. A great introduction for any beginner and to hone your craft.
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Royal 3.5oz
Great for beginners
New pipe smoker here. I purchased this along with Lane 1-Q and C&D autumn evening. This is definitely my favorite of those three. I smoke rather hot but learning to slow it down, but the beauty of this tobacco is it won't punish you with tongue bite or loss of much flavor by puffing like a chimney. My wife couldn't stand me smoking cigarettes years ago but loves the aroma from this tobacco which is a huge plus. Definitely keeping this in my rotation.
