Sutliff - Revelation Match
Put some of this in a cloth roll up pouch, let it sit for a week, bang Revelation. This is a bit more fruity actually but its jot a had thing. I enjoy this kost in my Kaywoodie.

Mac Baren - Plumcake 100g
Plum & Rum
This is sweeter than Navy Flake but a bit sharper and with a little spice from the pinch of latakia. If smoked slow its sweet and smooth. Good aroma from the tin and smoke. A staple in my tobacco drawer.

Sutliff - Revelation Match
Pretty Good...
This isnt a bad blend its actually good. Its a tad sweeter than HOW Revelation and sweeter than C&D Epiphany. Burns slow and cool. Not a nic bomb kind of leaves you hanging that way but good to have around.

Mac Baren - Mixture: Scottish Blend 100g
Love it !
Once you learn how to smoke this you cant put it down.

Mac Baren - Navy Flake 100g
Brown Sugar
This is a delicious flake ! Smokes cool, tastes sweet with flavors of rum, honey, and brown sugar in a tobacco base. This is an awesome blend and with age its even better.

Mac Baren - Symphony 100g
Good burley.
A good burley smoke. Cool, mild, slightly sweet, no bite if smoked slow. It is what it is, a bit one dimensional but most burley dominant blends are like that. I prefer Golden Extra over this one.

Lane Limited - Ready Rubbed 14oz
Yum !
Burley flavored lightly with molasses, cocoa, and anise. What more can you ask, an old school favorite ! Cool and Tasty with thick clouds of smoke.

Mac Baren - Golden Extra
Another Mac Baren Fave..
One thing with Mac Baren blends, you have to smoke them slow. If you can control your cadence you will be rewarded with a tasty , satisfying treat. Golden Extra is just that. Light sweet flavor of natural cocoa and honey not goopy syrup ! An old time burley blend going back tp 1951 and its probably Mac Barens second biggest seller next to Mixture. Smooth burley with a little oomph but mild and mellow. An old school, tasty burley/ va blend with a mildly sweet aroma. Try it !

Mac Baren - Mixture: Scottish Blend 100g
old Standby
I love mixture ! Smoke it slow and it wont bite. It has that honey toast aroma and taste that i love. An original classic.

Mac Baren - Mixture: Scottish Blend 100g
An Original !
I love mixture scottish blend ! Mildly sweet and satisfying blend thats not goopy, cloying , nor like smoking steam. It has real tobacco taste and an aroma of honey toast, i love it ! This and Latakia Flake are my go to blends. I like other Mac Baren blends too like Club Blend and Symphony but Mixture will always be my favorite.

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 100g
Still good...
I did manage to catch a bad tin of this and it was not pleasant but hasn't happened since. There must have been a bad lot that escaped QC. I still buy it, still love it and no problems since. Good Stuff !

Peter Stokkebye - PS23 B & B
Good Standby....
I was suprised by this blend. Its more a spicy sweet black cav with burley. Tastes like Granger mixed with black cav. This is good leaf as you can still taste tobacco. Im gonna keep a pound of this on hand as my go to ! It can be a little snappy on the tongue but if you smoke slower no worries.

McClelland - 700 - Baklava
Bad Batch maybe ??
Mine tasted musty like and old book ???? Still have it, 3 years old now..

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Royal 100g
Runner Up...
Another good aromatic from Mac Barens 7 Seas line. This one is a tad less sweet than the Regular blend but has a fruity quality. Personally i like the regular better but this is definitely 2nd place. Smokes cool and dry, can do this all day as well.

Dan Tobacco - Sweet Vanilla Honeydew 50g
Could have been ....
This is a tasty tobacco with a nice aroma but it bites like a rabid dog and scorches your mouth ! Its a shame because it is tasty.

Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake 3.5oz
One of the Best
Wow, this stuff is awesome ! Sweet, smokey flavor. Its a juicy smoke but very cool with no bite. Juicy in a good way, its bursting with flavor. This is an aweso.e addition from Mac Baren ! Whether you like english or aromatics, you will like this tobacco .

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 100g
Addictive !
This is an update on my last review, this stuff is great ! Lots of flavor and aroma. Keeps your pipe clean too ! I cant put this stuff down, been smoking it everyday !

Samuel Gawith - Black XX 50g
Good but Lookout !
Very tasty like a Toscano style cigar but very strong and potent ! Id rather chew it than smoke it !

Samuel Gawith - 1792 Flake 50g
Yuck, Tonquin !
Good tobacco, nice virginias, lousy topping ! If you like Tonquin go for it , if not stay away ! Another love/ hate tobacco.

Dan Tobacco - Blue Note 50g
Smooth !
This is has a slightly odd but unique flavor and aroma. Its a vanilla and fruit cased/ topped blend but different ? It has a balmy quality about it and its smooth as a Yoo Hoo drink. It reminds me of an old pouch blend called Black Clipper.... Well done aromatic.

Mac Baren - Mixture: Scottish Blend 100g
I love Mixture Scottish, but i cant do it all day and i smoke it really slow. Im one of those who dont have the chemistry for it but i love it so.

Smoker's Pride - Cherry Cavendish 12oz
Codger Cherry
Not a bad economy cherry blend. Best in a cob, good for doing yardwork.

Mac Baren - Dark Twist 100g
Good !
This has a nice, natural maple and brown sugar taste to it and pleasing aroma. Smokes better rubbed out but should still be sipped or it will bite you.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
Lacks Consistency....
A problem i found with C&D blends is it being the same tin after tin. I bought an 8 oz tin that was pretty good. So thinking i really liked it i bought the 16 oz tin and was disapointed. It lacked the aroma and maple taste of the 8 oz. I tried other blends of theirs too only to have the same problem. Things arent so somple these days where you have 1 or 2 blends and you"re happy, many tobaccos i onced loved have either vanished or suffered from corporate greed and changed their blends recipe. Boy do i miss the old days for pipe smoking !

Amphora - Full Aroma 1.75oz
Why ??
This is changed, not the same. Less aroma and flavor. Used to be sweeter and a notch higher in strength too. Not like it used to be !

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 100g
Good Quality !
This tastes good, smells good, and smokes cool. Pipe stays clean too, well done aromatic. Not goopy or overdone !

Mac Baren - Vanilla Cream 100g
Not Your Typical Vanilla..
This is a darn good tobacco ! Its not the syrupy, overcased, goop that many vanilla tobaccos in which are scourged. This is a good quality Danish vanilla cream with actual tobacco taste. Sweet, creamy, flavorful, and occasionally nutty.Better when sipped, stays cool and dry. Room note is pleasant and not cloying. If your looking for all vanilla and no tobacco flavor look elsewhere this isnt for you. If you want a nice, sweet but balanced vanilla and still want to taste tobacco this is the ticket.

Stanwell - Melange 50g
High End Hickory !
This tastes like a premium version of Middletons Hickory, same aroma and all but much better than its drugstore counterpart. Its an aromatic with some tobacco taste and kick. I like it .

Sutliff - SPS 2000 - Sunset Rum
Oh my !
This tastes like Italian Rum cream cake ! Great dessert smoke.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Not Like it Used to Be.
All of Lanes product has changed over the years. This used to be sweeter tasting , now its kind of bland. Stokkebye Golden Dansk is better than this now.

Mixture No. 79 - Mixture No. 79 14oz
This blend has definitely been tweaked ! While its still am aquired taste it is easier to smoke these days. It used to be very soapy and pefumey, it still has that quality about it but more subtle. Its heavier in the liqorice department too, the extra anise did it justice though. You do get a kiss of vanilla here and there and if you air it for 15 minutes before hand it smokes cooler. At times this reminds me of another old codger blend, VIP ! VIP was a birch flavored burley/ virginia blend and it was sweet. Mixture 79 does have a birch beer taste about it on and off. There is something floral that is added which to this day i still cant put my finger on, but it is now more laid back. If you take your time with this blend you will enjoy it, its just not for everyone. Those who can get througj the first pipeful, you will find yourself reaching for 79 more than you anticipated. If you somewhat like it at first it will grow on you, if you hate it you will never pick it up again. To me its a nostalgia smoke and i do enjoy the anise flavor and vanilla in the aroma.

Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East 8oz
Too Much of a Good Thing !
This is overkill ! I enjoy English blends with latakia, but this is just too much latakia. An english blend is supposed to have a balance between smokey, sweet, and floral. When in balance a melody is produced that is beautiful. Yes, some will have more va, some more turkish, some more latakia, but some kind of a balance is needed. Dunhill London mixture and Standard mixture is perfect. This is way over the top with latakia. Its good the first 3 bowls but because of heavy latakia you palette and taste buds become tired to the point you cant taste anything. Then no matter what you smoke after is null and void because of burnout. Im talking taste burnout here not tongue bite. Ill stick to the good old english blends like Dunhill, Presbyterian, and Sobranie.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 16oz
Jack of all trades master of none !
First time I tryed this i purchased an 8 oz tin. It was very mapley and good. However you really cant taste the virginias, and they are not very good quality. But i dod like the flavor and aroma. Second time i purchased a 16 oz tin, and the maple was almost non existent and the tobacco itself not a very good quality to enjoy without flavoring or casing. My point, C&D aromatics are not consistent ! I havent really smoked aromatics in years but i like to keep one or two on hand when my sweet tooth strikes me. Sutliff and McClelland aromatics are always the same, i know what im going to get. Wish i could say the same for C&D ! Seems Autumn Evening is the leftover shake virginias from other tobaccos that didnt cut it.
