Kramer's - Extra Smooth
One of the Best
This is great all-round tobacco. It really is smooth, pleasant and satisfying. Requires no aging or drying and is excellent out of the bag. I am very glad I tried it and will certainly get more.
Grand Croupier - Jack Pot
Better than expected
After trying all the Grand Croupier blends this is my favorite. It is good value with an Old Timey flavour and aroma which reminds me of Sir Walter Raleigh or Prince Albert but without the chemical flavour you sometimes get with those. It is listed as an aromatic but I only get a pleasant smell of good tobacco. It does benefit from drying and is very nice in a cob. I will be getting more.
E. Hoffman Company - Distinguished Gentleman 2.5oz
This is a pleasant and enjoyable tobaccco. You can smoke it from morning til night without bite or sharpness on the tongue and the aroma is great on a cool fall day.I got this as an experiment and find I'm going through it faster than expected so I plan to buy it again.
Grand Croupier - Double Down
Another good one
As soon as this arrived I filled a Willmer Bell Air with it to try. It is a pleasant and sweet ,flavourful tobacco. Lots of nice Virginia with good Burley providing a little tang in the background. Best smoked slowly as befits a good Virginia forward blend. I have tried many tobaccos over the years including-yes-- the original Balkan Sobranie,but I am amazed to find I could easily just smoke Grand Croupier blends and be very happy. Of course I know this won't happen, but these are all amazing bargains.
Grand Croupier - Boneyard
I like this stuff. Not a Lat bomb but a kind of mild English. It reminds me of C&D Yale Mixture which I like very much. It has a sweetness with the Latakia in the background but still noticable. After I finish this 8oz. I expect to buy again. It is a bargain for real.
