Mac Baren - Vanilla Flake 1.75oz
My neighbour was so kind to share a flake with me the other evening after just purchasing the tin earlier in the day. Very nice smoke!! I just wanted to smoke it all day! But like most MacB's tobacco, smoke slow or you will get a bite.
Captain Black - Original 1.5oz
Bought a pouch when I started smoking pipe again and I don't know how some peopel can smoke this stuff. I endded up throwing the package in the garbage.
McClelland - Grand Orientals: Yenidje Supreme 50g
Not Really a Fan
I didn't appreciate the tin note at all. Smelled like stale dried out ketchup. Once smoked that wasn't detectable and the blend had VERY light and subtle flavors. I jarred it up and will return in about 6-8mo or more..
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
Just a Great Smoke!!
So much deep tobacco taste when it's smoked. Smells like county grass or a fresh cut hayfield. Nice amout of perique as well. I found my batch to be a little wet so I let the discs dry for 10min each side and it was perfect.
Dunhill - Early Morning Pipe 50g
Light Latakia Morning
Nice blend of latakia and a little of sweetness from the Va. Goes good with a strong cup of coffee.
Dunhill - Nightcap 50g
Very rich tastes, heavy latika I don't think I would stock up on it, but it is a good smoke.
McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton on the Town 100g
This smoke is SO good! I was very surprised I must say. This is one fine tobacco from McClelland
Orlik - Golden Sliced 50g
Nice and Light
Light, mellow smoke with very subtle flavors. The Perique is almost non existant in taste but it is just a low level background hint. All in all it's a good smoke
Peterson - Connoisseur's Choice 50g
Candy For Your Pipe
When opening the tin I was hit with a sweet, fruity rummy smell. I just wanted to eat it! It was a little damp first smoke so I dried it for a bit and had 3 more bowl over the course of 4 hours. When I smoked the first bowl it was like taking a bite of a delicious fruit cake that had the perfect amount of sweetness and none of those gross candied fruit bits. Very strong top note and the casing is very sweet and slightly spicy. The flavors get stronger as you go. Near the end of the bowl it gets a little cigar taste and loses a bit of its furit sweetness flavor from the concentrated tobacco oils. All in all a good smoke but not an everyday smoke as it can be a little overwhelming on the pallate
Smoker's Pride - Black Cavendish 12oz
I have tried all of these products and they are SOAKED in PG! I bought a bag of this stuff. I dried it for a total of 23h. I checked it after 15min, still soaking wet. 30mins no change. 2h, no change. Overnight slightly drier and still had VERY bad tongue bite. After 23h it still had awful bite. I gave it away to someone and he ended up throwing it out as he didn't like either. To each their own, but I will never buy anything from Smoker's Pride again. This product is apparently made by Lane Ltd.
Erinmore - Erinmore Mixture 50g
Not as pronounced as the flake, but still a good strong smoke. A little black cav makes it lighter in their blend.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
A Good, Strong, Proper Smoke!
Nice fruity flavors, mild smoke, and packs a nice punch too!
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Royal 16oz
Smooth and Creamy
This is a good all day smoke or somethign for the early morning. When I opened the bag it smelled great and I knew I was going to like it. No tounge bite, burns pretty wet, I let it dry for about 6h on parchment paper and it made a difference but it burns a little hotter now. 4h would have done the trick.
