Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Broken Scotch Cake
This to me , was somewhat plain ( maybe it's suppose to be ) but it does have a fragrant taste. I do appreciate the lightness though.
Cornell & Diehl - Luigi Radice 2oz
Well it does indeed have flavor ! I'm not use to a Va Per like this. Some may really like this. It's fruity like orange flavor to me.
Former - Bird's Eye Flake 50g
It took a few bowls to like this but I think the trick for me was to age and dry it a little. I wanted something to rotate with my Orlik GS and Sutliff 707 SV. I think this will be great ! In my opinion, it's a little spicy and peppery but I got use to it.
Orlik - Golden Sliced 50g
Hay ! This takes me back in memory to my younger years when I use to pick up hay bales and throw it in the back of the truck and go put it in the barn ! The sweet smell and taste of this is awesome !
Sutliff - Red Virginia Ribbon
The description got my attention and it was a good Virginia. I think it might need a little more aging than I wanted to give it, but I'm no expert. I personally like the Sutliff "707 Sweet" a lot more.
Sutliff - 707 Sweet Virginia
I've been trying out some different Virginia Tobacco's and so far this is my favorite ! To me, it's a nice Virginia with a taste that satisfies. Not too strong like others I've tried. Good for blending too.
Sutliff - 526 - Old Professor
Good Back Up
I've tried other's by Sutliff and since I prefer English/Balkan blends I thought I'd try this. So,If I was out of my favorite blend, this would be a good backup to have around.
A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Just to have around.
I kept seeing the good reviews , so I gave it a try. My tin had 27 coins ! It was an interesting blend that I'd like to just have around in the rotation. I was kinda sad when I crumbled the last coin. So I enjoyed it slowly.
Lane Limited - Medal of Valor
Thanks , but no thanks.
Ok, I tried this on two different orders. Maybe it's the Burley or maybe not. I don't like Burley blends. I'll stick with Crown Achievement. Thank you !
Lane Limited - Dark Red
If you like Aromatics, this might be worth a try. I guess if anybody could come up with a nice mix of cherry and vanilla, Lane Ltd. could. The blend is smooth and creamy to me. The cherry over rides the vanilla just a little though. I like mostly English, Balkans and some Virginias. This was a treat for a change.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Kendal Gold
Like it , sorta.
I'm trying to like this. I liked the color and cut and wanted the hay/citrus taste. The top of the bowl is awesome but it packs so thick and required some poking or I'd end up dumping half of it out thinking it was through. I'm not giving up though. I smoke it as slow as I can. I think it needs a little drying time for sure though.
Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
This was a good Balkan choice ! I'll reorder this one !
Super Value - English Mixture 1.5oz
Very Moist- Good Price
This is possibly a good choice for those who like to put tobacco's in a jar for way later use or allow to dry in the open. It was too moist for me and took a long time to dry some. For the price , I wanted to try it though. I prefer Peterson's Wild Atlantic. It cost more but I understand why now.
Peterson - Connemara Black 40g
I received this in a Peterson Sampler a while back. I have to say I was surprised at the flavor. The Peterson Tobaccos I've tried were good quality blends including this one. 5 Stars !
Sail - Natural 1.5oz (Beige)
This was a very light smoke. I read latakia in the description , but I didn't detect any. If someone is looking for an ultra-light well packing blend, it might be ok.
McClelland - Ashton Revival: Old Dog 50g
This is one of those blends that I just wanted try out. I'm happy I did ! It was better than I expected ! I want this to stay in my rotation for sure ! Truly a superb English blend in my opinion.
Lane Limited - Crown Achievement
I'm beginning to wonder if every blend that comes from Lane is great ! So far, for me, that's been the case. This Blend Is Pure Awesome ! Thank you ! Update;4/16- This has became my go to blend. I like others too but this, this is my go too !
McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton 100g
Enjoyable Quality Blend
Superb blend of enjoyable English ! I'll want this again !
Dunhill - Early Morning Pipe
I enjoyed this. Very good all day smoke for me !
Peterson - Wild Atlantic 40g
This is one of my favorite English Blends. If my memory is correct , I think this is the reason I started enjoying English blends (it came with my Peterson Pipe that I purchased ). The open pouch freshness, the texture and feel and leathery taste ! Superb Quality !
