Missouri Meerschaum - Great Dane 1.5oz
An aromatic with flavor!
I smoked this blend in a churchwarden and corn pipe. The corn pipe brought out more of the topping nuances. When the vanilla and the slight cherry aren't hitting your palate, the virginia and the burley are there to keep you very satisfied. I'm definitely adding this to the short list of aromatics I enjoy. It does tend to burn hot, so careful with the tongue bite.

Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding Bourbon Barrel Aged 2oz
Extra tang
I tried this before I tried regular Plum Pudding, and must say, I love the extra tang from this bourbon version. Delish! The tin note reminded me of smoked cheese from back home, mixed with burning trash in the distance. What's not to love?!

Missouri Meerschaum - Country Gentleman Straight
Love mine.
Probably my favorite MM. Smokes delicious, and the price is perfect. They look great with a forever stem.

Peter Stokkebye - PS38 Highland Whiskey
Mellow
Similar to L1Q, with less of the chemical after taste. Mellow smoke with a very nice tin and room note.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Can't go wrong.
I purchased this from Tinder Box under the name Wilshire. I've been smoking it for years, and just recently found that it's L1Q. I will definitely be purchasing in bulk from smoking pipes, since it's much more affordable. This is a no-fuss, unpretentious smoke.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Ennerdale Flake
Mouthful of almonds
The smell is so different from the taste. The tin note definitely packs a punch - kind of smells like grandma's purse with her perfumed hanky. The taste is gentle, yet complex, and leaves a long-lasting flavor of having had a mouthful of almonds. I was a little upset that it ghosted my favorite cob pipe for a few smokes, but I'm kind of craving it again. I have a feeling the experience with this one is going to keep changing.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
Box of raisins
It took me back to my childhood and opening up a box of warm raisins. I often stop by at my desk just to get a whiff from the jar. Sipped slowly, this is a joy to smoke, and full of flavor.

Cornell & Diehl - Apricots and Cream 2oz
Bland.
Tin note smells of soaked, spiced, rum cake, which in my book, is delicious. No bite, but pretty bland. I was hopeful for it, but after smoking it a while now, I'm looking to blend it with something else. I wouldn't purchase this again.
