G. L. Pease - Spark Plug 2oz
Very rich smell
The taste is incredible. And it is strong. It's wonderful stuff.

Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
The smoky, woody, earthy, lightly musty sweet
Though it's medium in strength, and a little fuller in taste, it's well balanced enough to smoke several times a day without tiring out your taste buds. This is the king of English blends for me.

Peterson - 3 P's Peterson's Perfect Plug 50g
The taste is very powerful
The Virginias have a fair amount of tangy dark fruit, earth, wood, bread, sugar, some grass, tart and tangy citrus, vegetation, mild floralness, a couple of cigar notes, and a pinch of spice. They are bolstered by the bold nutty, earthy, woody, sweet burleys. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste.

Cobblestone - Brick English Plug 1.75oz
This is a great mixture
Interesting combination of orientals, burley, and Virginia.

Cornell & Diehl - Engine #99 2oz
There’s no chance of bite
The smokey, woody, earthy, musty sweet Cyprian Latakia has a strong presence, though this is no lat-bomb as the other components always have their say. This is a near perfectly balanced English/Balkan blend. Highly recommended.

A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
This is a masterpiece tobacco
The tin aroma is sweet and tangy. The strength and taste levels are medium. This is, quite simply, the best VaPer out there.

Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - Small Batch Resolution 2oz
New favorite
The blend not only smells great but it also taste pretty darn good too. Keeps getting better as you smoke down the bowl. No bite and excellent taste.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
The rich smoky
Burns clean, mostly cool and a little slow with a very consistent, mildly sweet and very savory flavor from start to finish. Not an overwhelming nicotine bite either, which I like since I smoke nothing outside of pipes and have a low tolerance for nicotine. Highly Recommended!

Ashton - Consummate Gentleman 50g
Fine medium-bodied blend
This blend is special because it is so light in latakia, while still retaining a classic english odour and taste. Very nice flavor akin to raisins lightly dusted with brown sugar and cinnamon spice. Very pleasurable indeed and highly recommended.

Sutliff - Crumble Kake Barrel Aged Series No.5 Rustica Limited Edition 50g
Each component has its role. Won’t bite or get harsh. The room note is a notch stronger.

Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1882 Founder's Blend 1.4oz
Smoky, woody, earthy and sweet
No dull or harsh spots to be found. The strength and taste levels are medium. This is a very enjoyable blend, one that I could easily smoke any time.

Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding Bourbon Barrel Aged 2oz
Well balanced
The pressed kake plug is easily broken apart. The tobacco is a little moist, but I did not feel the need to dry it. It burns a bit slow, cool and clean with a very consistent and intricate, deeply rich and creamy smooth, smoky, woody, spicy, sweet and savory taste from start to finish. It sports a very pleasant, lingering after taste with a stronger room note.

Warped - Kings Stride 2oz
Good all day smoke
It's a pretty solid smoke. Mild to medium in body. Medium in taste. Flavoring is mild. Nice room note.

Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
EMP is very good - very, very good
Very nice. True to it's name, it is jut awesome in the early morning hours when you have nothing to contend with but peace and quiet - and a good mug of coffee. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent mildly sweet and savory flavor from top to bottom.

Mac Baren - Club Blend 3.5oz
Pretty straightforward
A little peppery and fairly light and sweet. Nice on a fall day. The rolls themselves are nicely sized and are very easy to rub out and fill with as they hold just the right amount of moisture. It’s very easy to light and once lit it does not require many re-lights. It really is pleasurable indeed!

Peterson - Sherlock Holmes 50g
This one works for me
An all day mixture that produces a decent volume of smoke. This is a nice vintage blend of mello Burley and VA with subtle sweet flavors.

Peterson - Royal Yacht 50g
An all-time classic
It is outstanding. RY is my favorite blend, and the perfect way to start each day. If you enjoy true tobacco taste then you will enjoy this powerful blend. It can be smoked all day with no fatigue or tongue bite. The topping is a little citrusy with a few raisin, fig, and very obvious plum notes.

Savinelli - Essenza Cipriota 100g
No bite or harshness
The Virginias and I believe the Macedonian leaf seems to take the lead in this blend with the Latakia adding a pleasant non-typical smokiness. I could easily see this as an all-day blend, leaving the heavy artillery for night smoking. The room note is really nice and the flavour is simple and easy going.

Two Friends - English Chocolate 2oz
An all day smoke
Burns clean, cool, oodry and slightly slow with a very consistent, mildly sweet and lightly savory flavor. The Virginias are smooth as silk, the Latakia becomes a true condiment, and the chocolate is very sweetly subtle. This is a great tasting smoke. I have no problem giving this a full recommendation.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
I like it
It had a taste similar to sweet maple since it has in it maple, sugar, rum, vanilla,citrus flavors, and whisky. This one is probably as close to perfection as there is in an aromatic. Burns cool, clean and smooth with a fairly consistent taste. If you love aromatics, this one needs to be part of your next order.

Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Wonderful cherry aromatic
This is in my opinion a perfectly balanced blend of flavors. I'm impressed. An all day smoke. The room note is absolutely amazing, and unlike most aromatics I've smoked, you taste cherry and chocolate. I think everyone should try this at least once; the best cherry blend ever.

Davidoff - Danish Mixture 50g
Very impressed
The Virginia shines under what I feel is a subtle aromatic. The tin note is fairly sweet, with a light honey and fermented fruit aroma. I enjoy smoking this when I am in the mood for something mild with a slightly enhanced flavor.The room note is old-fashioned slightly sweet maple, but not heavy at all, and dissipates quickly.

Warped - Scarecrow 2oz
Highly recommended
Sweet, fruity, sharp. The kake isn't too damp, I easily crumble, load, light, smoke. The tobaccos are more Cavendish, without being too heavy or sticky. A great aromatic.

Ashton - Artisan's Blend 50g
The Royal
A lovley blend for the winter, especially for those of you who like complex and spicey blends. There are a lot of very nice, rich flavors, which all muddle superbly to make a balanced blend.
