Sutliff - #600 Mixture 79
Not the same as the pouch
Its ok, not terrible, a bit bitey and hard to keep lit. what rates it so low for me is that it is barely like mixture 79 from the pouch. the bulks flavors are extremely muted and somehow it bites way worse. my recommendation is to just buy the pouch, far more satisfying
Stands & Pouches - Genuine Leather 1 Pipe Combo Pouch Black
Great for the price
Great deal, only drawback is the liner for the pipe area and zipper pocket is thin and rips after a little use. I still use the pouch though for sure, the outer leather is quite durable. Again, great for the price.
War Horse - Green 1.75oz
My number 1
Hands down my favorite tobacco I've ever tried. If you hate licorice you will probably hate this one, but for me there couldn't be a better taste. I couldn't help but practically puff this like a locomotive, no tongue bite at all, opened my nasal passage and I got lost in the smell and taste till the nicotine knocked me on my a**, just how I like it!
Cornell & Diehl - Shandygaff
Oh that smell!
That bag smell is one of the absolute worst tobacco smells I have smelled but oh gods this is the best non aromatic I've ever had. I diddnt expect it to be tolerable let alone incredible but it absolutely is. First time ever I have continuously smoked the whole bowl to ash. Fantastic in the cobbit dwarf. I'm gonna have to have a stock of this on hand from now on
McConnell - Black & Gold 50g
Trying to like it
So far I am trying to figure out how to like this one. It is definitely on the robust side of aromatics ive tried and have only rarely gotten some aro flavoring to the smoke. the tobaccos are "tasty" but strong to me. perhaps I will get a 2nd tin and age it. I really want to like it, just havent figured it out yet, loving the nic hit of a full bowl though!
Lighters - Zippo Single Torch Insert
Works most of the time when full but I find by the end of the day I got to click it a bunch of times to get a light. Absolutely NOT my best torch lighter but the only one that let's me use my favorite zippo cade so I make it work
Sutliff - Rum & Maple
Tasty and strong
Relatively new pipe smoker without a standard tobacco yet so I've been getting lots of 1 oz samples to try, I seem to take to aromatic tobaccos but they are usually too light on the nicotine. Main reason I got this is the high nicotine rating and it did not disappoint, not super strong but more nic hit than most other aros I have tried. It took a couple three bowls to figure out how to enjoy this one but by the 4th smoke with a medium/light cadence and a medium pack in the bowl I found the flavor and it was tasty. Most of the aromatics I've tried not much of the topping flavor doesn't come with the smoke but with this one I definitely get hints of the maple & rum left in my nose. My 1oz is gonna be gone soon and will be getting more
