Seattle Pipe Club - Christmas Spirit 2023 4oz
Worth the money.
As a fan of SPC blends I didn't mind paying a few dollars more than the Special Reserve for it. It arrived today and working my way through my first bowl. Highly impressed so far. It's like all the other Barrel Aged blends. Very good balance. Not to strong. You get the Latakia up front and then the brandy comes through on the back side. Definitely glad people are complaining about the price. It leaves more for me!

Peter Stokkebye - PS27 Pistachio
One of my favorites
In the last few months I have been in search of aromatics that I find to be fitting for me. I'm a English lover. Especially strong Latakia blends. But have to listen to the lady of the house complain of the burning rubber smell. So I went on a search for some aromatics with no burn and bite. And this is one that I found. And she loves the room note of it. So I hear no complaints. The taste to me is creamy and nutty. And honestly can say the taste is that comparable to Watergate salad. Definitely a good find in my quest of aromatics.

Rattray's - Highland Targe 100g
Excellent English
If you love English blends. You can't really get more top notch than Highland Targe and few others from Rattray's.

G. L. Pease - Géométrie 2oz
Nice all day smoke
Very nice mild blend that is definitely a good choice for a nice relaxing all day smoke.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 16oz
A new favorite
I'm not much of a aromatics guy. Mostly strong English blends and Virginias. This on the other hand I absolutely love. A aromatic that has no burn and bite. I absolutely love it. The tin note reminds me of butterscotch. The flavor isn't to sweet and has a flavor of Werther's Original Caramel to me. Definitely a new one for the rotation.

Captain Earle's - Ten Russians 2oz
Just like Penzance
For some reason this blend reminds alot of Esoterica Penzance. I keep plenty on hand and enjoy it often

Captain Earle's - Private Stock 2oz
Great Blend
Fell in love with this one immediately. Being a Pirate Kake fan I'm starting to love some of the Captain Earle's offerings more and more.

Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
Classic blend!
This is definitely one of the most classic blends I keep on hand at all times. A great all day smoke.

Tampers & Tools - Savinelli Pipe Dopp Kit
Excellent kit
If you are like me and have 2-3 vulcanite stem pipes. This kit should last you a pretty good while.

Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
My #1 go to!
This is my absolute favorite blend. I'm shocked on the fact it's so heavy on Latakia but yet smooth. My all day smoke 95 percent of the time.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
Not for the weak
As I transitioned from cigars to pipes I wanted a blend to go to that was similar to some of the super strong maduro cigars I enjoyed. I found a happy place with Pirate Kake. One of my favorites.

Cornell & Diehl - Junkyard Dawg 2oz
Top notch English
The Dawg is one my favorite blends. Always have a good supply in my cellar.
