Samuel Gawith - Skiff Mixture 50g
Well Balanced Blend
The components of this blend work very well together. The Latakia is subtle. It also has a sourness to it that is very satisfying. It reminds me of Presbyterian Mixture. Easy tobacco to love.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Bamboo Tamper
Beautiful, functional and inexpensive!
These are my favorite tampers. I love them more and more as they color with use.
Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
It'll grow on you.
At first I did not like it. But I found myself reaching for it more and more. Now I love it. Nutty and spicy. And yes, it does have one hell of a lot of nicotine. My brain craves it.
McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton's Cellar 100g
At first, it seemed a little too sweet for me. But as I burned through a tin I began really appreciate its complexity. The whiskey flavor starts out strong but mellows as the bowl burns and compacts. No bite. Latakia blend with a very interesting twist. Love it!
Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
My Old Favorite
I smoke a lot of different kinds of tobacco. I like the variety. But when I come back to Presbyterian Mixture it is like coming home. It is smooth and not terribly complex. It does not bite at all. It's just a good medium flavor tobacco with a little bit of Latakia. For me it's just smokey enough.
