Clarin Clay - The Canadian One (Tobacco Clay)
Best clay pipe ever
It is super pretty and has a rugged hand feel. It is much better in quality than old German clay and Old Dominion. You will not regret getting one.

Cornell & Diehl - Steamworks 2oz
Perfect VPO
This is the best blend I have tasted in a while, very smooth and strong taste, starts with oriental-forward then then the red virginia and perique comes into the play with smooth force. Heavy nicotine content.

Missouri Meerschaum - The Rory
Good pipe, elegant and functional
good pipe with a comfortable length for clenching and a wonderful shape for elegance. The size of the bowl is also nice for a hour of smoke.

Mac Baren - Golden Extra
good blend with light casing
Good burley blend with light chocolate and honey casing. You can taste the casing from the first puff, in the middle the burley natural flavor becomes more prominent, the last third or so of the blend is rather bland.

Missouri Meerschaum - Dagner Poker
beware, ghosts easily
This is a good table pipe with compact and nice construction. Nevertheless I find it to ghost easily, retaining the flavor from the previous blend especially blends with light casing like mac baren and peter s.

Cornell & Diehl - Derringer
good virginia with light casing
Great straight virginia with light sugar casing. I find it to be strong and straight-forward and smooth, with a bit more bright than red. Great straight virginia experience, the casing being a good complement and not overwhelming. Jeremy reeves is god.

Cornell & Diehl - Night Train 2oz
Perfect burley/virginia
Incredible blend, virginia and burley and cavendish melt together to produce a sweet and nutty yet smooth experience. Perique being the background player accentuating the va/burley/cavendish. Sweeter and smoother than haunted bookshop and perfect for a virginia lover!

Peter Stokkebye - PS402 Luxury Twist Flake
Good straight virginia with light casing
Good tobacco, not the heavy casing typically PS, you can still taste the natural sweetness of virginia through it.

Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning Flake 2oz
Incredible strong vaper
Best vaper in my collection, the red virginia melts perfectly with the perique, strong and smooth and sweet.

Cornell & Diehl - Redburn 2oz
Very light burley with a rum taste
not bad in terms of taste, but too light in my opinion. If you want a good burley go get haunted bookshop, this will not suffice.

Cornell & Diehl - John Marr 2oz
beware this is aromatic and will GHOST!!
Artificial taste, and will ghost even a meerschaum! Be very careful not to use the virginia pipe otherwise it will keep haunting you for bowls to come.

F & K - Lancer Ready Rubbed
Perfect balance of virginia and latakia
Very good blend for virginia purist and latakia lovers alike. The taste of sweet natural virginia melts perfectly with the latakia background, a good balance of each.

Cornell & Diehl - Opening Night 2oz
Perfect straight virginia
My favorite straight virginia with no casing. The flavor of bright and red virginia melt nicely together (a bit more red-oriented which I do like). You need a good pipe and a slow cadence to really savor the natural sweetness of virginia.

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Perfect balkan in my opinion
The oriental-virginia forward blend melts nicely with the latakia background. The very best in balkan mixture in my opinion.

Tobacco Jars - Small CVault Humidified Tobacco Container
Great container
holds about 2 oz of loose ribbon, good quality and compact sizing.

Tobacco Jars - Medium CVault Humidified Tobacco Container
Perfect for keeping daily blends
keeps about 4-6oz of tobacco depending on the cut, very good for its compact nature and light-resistant properties. Sizing good for travel as well.

Cornell & Diehl - Briar Fox 2oz
Virginia and burley
well this one is kind of a middle of the road deal, some virginia sweetness and some burley, when you puff too fast it smells of cheap cigarettes. I would much prefer some good straight virginia like opening night and some good burley like haunted bookshop over this middle of the road deal.

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
Great burley blend
Very nice burley blend, heavy and earthy, no casing, just the way burley should be. The perique really brings out the burley flavor.

Peter Stokkebye - PS41 Cube Cut
light aromatic tobacco
it is not bad in any sense, just too much casing for me. You can taste the sweet red virginia cavendish flavor but not really the earthy burley. like other light aros this one start out tasting nice but I just cannot bring myself to finish the bowl for its lack of change and depth in flavor

Missouri Meerschaum - Cornell & Diehl Charles Towne Landing

Tampers & Tools - AKB Meerschaum Orange Swirl Tamper

Lighters - IM Corona Pipe Master Silver Arabesque

Mac Baren - Vanilla Flake 1.75oz

Three Nuns - Three Nuns 1.75oz
good taste and consistency
sweetness from beginning to end, good complexity

Mac Baren - Vanilla Roll Cake 3.5oz
artificial sweetness

Missouri Meerschaum - Mark Twain Limited Edition
great pipe
solid construction and great smoking experience, nice work mm

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Ennerdale Flake 50g
I never write reviews for tobaccos until this one.. The flavor is so elegant, contains the natural sweetness of virginia and the epic lakeland essence (I would characterize as a honey/floral sweetness) in the background doubling up the experience without overpowering the virginia itself. I have no idea why some people say it is unbearable, for me it is just right.

Missouri Meerschaum - Freehand with Tan and Amethyst Stem
A huge crack on the side where the smoke leaks, cannot smoke, has been happy with mm products till this buy... be careful friends
