Sir Walter Raleigh - Regular 14oz
Like an old friend
The older I get, the more of this tobacco I smoke. This Sir Walter Raleigh pipe tobacco is the consistency of Grape Nuts cereal. It’s easy to load and light. The flavor is akin to a good cup of coffee. It doesn’t taste like coffee, it just gives the same good satisfaction. True burley chocolate flavors. This was my first pipe tobacco and it looks like I’ll be ending with it.
War Horse - Green 1.75oz
My Dad passed recently and I was going through his pipes and blends and found this tobacco. Pressed into a nice firm block plug, this blend smells of almond extract. The room note and flavor is beautiful. Delicious from start to finish.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
The flake and mixture are not the same. My apologies.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
A good stronger tobacco that lets you know it there. Good Virginia and burley with the perfect topping. The pipe smokers who are knocking the mixture but like the flake absolutely amaze me. The mixture is the same tobacco, it’s only rubbed out.
Sutliff - 507C Virginia Slices
This is a pure flue cured Virginia flake that comes in long strips. Nothing fancy here. Taste is pure and satisfying. The added sweetness( if there is one), never goes forward of the leaf. A very pleasant Virginia flake. My wife says it smells like I’ve been smoking cigarettes after I smoke it.
Capstan - Flake Yellow 1.75oz
This is blue’s flue cured brother. If you have been a cigarette smoker you’ll appreciate this one. Tastes a lot like Dunhill Red cigarettes. This is not bad. In fact it’s rather nice. Pure mellow Virginia, flue curing that brings out the sugars in the leaf, all goes really good. Burns really nice, and tastes great.
Prince Albert - Prince Albert 14oz
Made up of the finest Tennessee and Kentucky white burley tobacco, this is quite a simp,e blend. Nutty, chocolate, and not a bite in the whole tin. One of the best to break in a new pipe.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Ennerdale Flake
I’m smoking this blend that I have had aging in a large mason jar since 2012 when I purchased it here on SP. I let the tobacco have some air for about 48 hours after unsealing. Now to the smoke; The floral essence is undetectable. What is detected is beautiful deep Virginia that has been rounded by the burley. The almond taste is there and adds a very refreshing soft nutty note. The nicotine content is medium, and the room aroma is very pleasant. A beauty of a blend!
Prince Albert - Prince Albert 1.5oz
Like grandmas quilt,
Here’s a tobacco that has weathered the test of time. It’s still around because it’s that good. Pure Tennessee and Kentucky, white burley tobacco with just a smidgen of season. You will not find a bite at all in this tobacco as it burns cool. Has a pleasant chocolate flavor that burley tobacco is known for. Soft, and comfortable, just like grndmaw’s quilt.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Bird's Eye
Stout and made to keep the smoker full of nicotine and alert whilst mending the nets. Try as you might to smoke it slow to reach that deep flavor, the harshness whalops you over the head. While you may need this for the balls to four, I’ll pass.
Sutliff - 212 - Burley Delight
Here’s an old timer tasting burley. This has a gentle cocoa taste and may bite if puffed to vigorously.
Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
One of, if not the best, English blends.
Opening the tin of this tobacco is akin to smelling the new leather interior of a new car, only add a little smokiness. The tin aroma on this one is one of the best produced. Easy to load ribbon much that is like Dunhill London blend. In the pipe and burning the blend gives off incredible rewards of mouth watering smokies, leather, sweet Virginia, all wrapped up in a harmonious love affair.
Amphora - Original Blend 1.75oz
I ordered a pack of this last year, and have just now got around to smoking it. I can understand why this has been around so long. ITS REALLY GOOD! I remember seeing Amphora being sold at Walgreens in the large metal tin. The label used to read, “ Doue Egbert’s Amphora”. Soft cocoas and burley bring to life a refreshingly delicious smoke. The room note is pleasant, and when I get back in my truck after I’ve been smoking this, the interior smells like cookies or brownies just out of the oven. This tobacco really should be offered in bulk. I’m ordering more!
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Conniston Cut Plug
Up in smoke,
If you like camp fires, brush fires,and maybe forest fires, you’ll probably really like this. The VIRGINIA is bold, but creamy smooth. This wonderful tobacco is the best of both worlds with a nicotine dose that will keep you going for the whole day. I’d strongly warn against smoking this in your place of residence. I can imagine Black beard smoking this.
Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
The test of time,
Here’s a blended tobacco that’s stood the test of time. Over 100 years. Sweet, mellow Virginias meet orientals and a wee bit f Latakia. Sweet, slightly Smokey, sour, and leathery. One f the oriental blends that will bring you compliments. No aromatic added here, just very fine tobaccos.
Rattray's - Red Rapparee 50g
Want to feel and smell like real Royal Fusilier? Here’s your to tobacco. Bloody good, and spot on old chap. Smoke this and you’ll hear angels singing.
Sutliff - Z92 Vanilla Custard
In the bag, amazing! In the pipe, it’s easily lit and surprisingly not gooey wet. The vanilla is creamy,and the taste is velvety cool smoking nirvana. This isn’t just some cheap cuts with aromatic sprayed on, this is tasty leaf tobacco. The room note will absolutely get you compliments. Delicious!
Dunhill - Royal Yacht 50g
A bold tasting tobacco. I really wanted to like it having worked with the real Royal Yacht back in the day before I took up the pipe. This tobacco has a slight aromatic added that is nice but the tobacco just seems to bold for my likes.
Peter Stokkebye - PS701 Virginia
If you have enjoyed a good non filtered Camel cigarette and prefer the Turkish blended cigarettes, have I got a secret for you. Thirds of this Virginia, burley and Turkish blend. Roll it, pipe it. Buttered toast! Tastes great, nice after taste.
Iwan Ries - Three Star Blue 7oz
One of the hottest burning tobacco blends I’ve ever loaded in a pipe. If you slow down it goes out, speed up a pinch and you’ll be drinking butter milk to heal the burn. It has a somewhat nice aroma, or is that the briar wood of my pipe burning.
Mixture No. 79 - Mixture No. 79 1.5oz
Dad liked it,
My Dad, being from an old family of the old dominion State, LOVED this blend. I’ve tried and tried to like, or st least appreciate this blend the he did. Sorry, no success. I wouldn’t line a bird cage with mixture 79.
Sutliff - Z50 Black Cordial
A M A Z I N G !
Try this and you'll toss out all the rest of the aromatics you've accumulated over the years. No better aromatic than this.
Dunhill - Ready Rubbed 50g
Here's a blend that's so subtle you might miss the taste if you don't slow it down to a crawl. It's not a bad tobacco at all. It's just very soft and light.
Savinelli - Brunello Flake 100g
As soon as I received my tin, I opened it and transferred the tobacco to a Mason jar. After I let it sit for a month, I tried it out. Opening the jar I smell what seems to be a light strawberry flavoring. The strawberry, along with the Virginia tobacco is intoxicatingly good. Smoking this flake tobacco is on a level of wonderful that will float you up on cloud nine! Tangy,creamy,and semi sweetly sour. Lights well and is really, really terrific. I will definitely purchase more of this.
Lane Limited - BL/WB
A pure Burley tobacco with a light toping that I believe is the same as used on McClelland 2000. Like it says, no bite. Stays lit, tastes great and the aroma is very pleasant. A good all day burley.
BriarWorks - Back Down South 2oz
I didn't think I would be impressed with this tobacco. Taking the lid off and giving it a little air I sniffed the tobacco. Hmm, that's quite nice. I left the jar lid off for about 8 hours and the moisture level was near perfect. These are soft Virginia flakes turned on end in the jar. The jar aroma is mellow and the bourbon is so faint that it smells more like apple or mixed fruit pie. I rubbed the flakes all the way out and loaded up. AMAZING! This is SUPERB! The Virginia is hay, and sweet feed, and mellow, while the liquor topping is very faint not really tasting like bourbon but a light fruitiness.I have tobacco hid away all over the house, but I have found myself revisiting this blend over and over until I'm going to need another jar soon. If you are a Virginia flake fan, give this a try! Two thumbs up!
McClelland - Ashton Revival: Black Parrot 50g
This tobacco leans heavy on the Perique. In my opinion, the heavy use of Perique in this blend causes an unusual and not very enjoyable imbalance. Leaves a rather sour and foul taste in my mouth.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Rum Twist Unsliced
If you have been frightened by some reviews that talk about this tobacco or any rope/twist being strong, allow me to educate: If you can stand a Joya de Nicaraguan Cigar, or many other cigars from that region, then you wont find any rope/twist too overwhelming. Now to the Rum Twist. Preperation: In the morning, I slice off several coins with a butcher knife and then cut the coins into four pieces. Rub those pieces out all the way and let it dry for an hour. I load the pipe up and let it sit until the afternoon when I'll reach for this pipe. I've found this works really well. The Rum flavoring is soft and non-overbearing, or too sweet. The Rum is only lightly in the background. The tobacco is very rich and so satisfying. Earthy, peaty even, but rounded and chewy. There is no Lakeland essence at all in these ropes that I've detected. If you like strong cigars you'll fall in love with these ropes. Rum Twist is fantastic.
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
This large silver dollar size coin consists of a very, very good Virginia that is slightly interwoven with soft Perique. The Perique must be aged by Stokkebye, because it is soft and non threatening. The Perique seems to really be in a mellow good relationship with the Virginia, because both are just right.The Cavendish is similar to Lane BCA, but only a smidgen right in the center. These three tobaccos together make for a very remarkably good pipe smoke. As good as this blend is straight from the ups truck,aging this tobacco will only bring greatness. The aroma is pleasant and there is a good dose of nicotine.
McClelland - 2015 Virginia-Perique Flake
The one and only!
In my opinion this is the best Virginia Perique flake on planet Earth. No bite here. Deep mellow Virginias, to slightly tangy Virginia with the deep dark stewed fruit of Perique. Best in a group 5 size pipe. Satisfying, amazingly good!
Lane Limited - BCA
Soft, jet black tobacco, that has been pleasing pipe smokers for a very long time. The description says fire cured which may be misleading. This is NOT fire cured, but flue cured. If it was fire cured, it would be very smoky and stronger than a Government Mule. Load this in your pipe and enter dream land. It doesn't matter if you're a lover of Virginia flakes, or a Latakia bomber pilot, everyone loves this tobacco. Soft, semi-sweet, luscious, never a bite. BCA is a must have in your stock.
McClelland - 5115 - Old World Classic
Here's a well matured Virginia with just a very light touch of juicy fruit. It sounds crazy but this recipe works well. The fruit never interferes with the ripe tang of the Virginia but seems to be nestled in. Smokes cool and long. Quiet enjoyable.
McClelland - 2000 - Fragrant Matured Cake
Couldn't be better.
A super nice Virginia with a flavor that gets better down the bowl. A nice aromatic touch that I suspect is coconut. It seems like the same flavoring that the old Lane recipe had for BLWB. Smooth, no bite, (please dry this out some), stays lit quite well, and just amazingly good. You may notice that this tobacco frequently is out of stock. Try some and you'll see why.
Lane Limited - HGL
The Beloved HGL.
This is one of the Lane treasures. Mr. Lane's favorite. A very lightly sweet recipe with a a touch of the Latakia for spice. The balance between light sweet and light smokey make this a must have. The aroma is enchanting.
Lane Limited - BS-005
I salute the gents who call this recipe light. In my opinion this is high on the Latakia side with the Virginia barely noticeable.It is SmOkEy GoOD! Rich and very pleasing but seems a little to far on the Latakia side for me.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Louisiana Perique Flake
The main key to really enjoying this tobacco is age. Drying it out quite a bit helps too. Smoking it new you're going to get the Lakeland special floral taste. Age it and the floral has calmed down and the Va Per has married into a really special treat. Best age; After 6 months.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Curly Cut Deluxe Sliced
Pure Virginia goodness,
I really, really like this tobacco. The broken coins that have been cut from the rope make me want to chew them, and one could if he so chooses. No Perique here, just malty, hay like bread dough Virginia. Dry this tobacco out some over night and you're ready to go. There is a faint Lakeland scent, but it's far off and adds nicely to the aroma and taste. If you like plain Virginia pleasure, you'll enjoy this tobacco.
James J. Fox - Provost 50g
There is no latakia in this blend, but you'll swear there is. The Virginia has been cured in a way that makes it seem smokey. This blend has brought debate from the Calabash Coast to Coo's Bay, but the one thing we all agree with is that this mixture is amazingly good. Cool, dry, no bite,savory.
McConnell - Scottish Cake 50g
If had to pick one tobacco that I thought tasted like autumn this would be it. Mellow, malty, and yes, as another has said "sweet feed" aroma. (Sweet feed is Horse feed that's made of grain and molasses, though this blend contains no molasses).This reminds me a lot of Dobies Four Square.This is a fine tobacco that you'll want to stock in the cellar.
Dunhill - Durbar 50g
Think of sour dough bread toast with butter spread across the top. This is so good it should only be smoked at night under full moon.
Peter Stokkebye - PS400 Luxury Navy Flake
Simple and good,
Here's a standard that is sure to please. Virginia and Perique. The tobaccos go together well here. The wife says this smells like a cigarette when burning and makes me smell like I've smoked a pack of cigarettes. Careful, it does bite.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Kendal Flake
Not bad, nothing to write home about either. Lots of Lakeland essence. Ernerdale is better.
Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East 8oz
A very hearty full English mellow smoke bomb. Full but soft and quite mellow.
Low Country - Cooper 2oz
Serious English tobacco,
I have long been a Presbyterian fan...still am, and that will not change. Someone at Low Country created Presbyterian in a flake form that is INCREDIBLE! This is more English than any Dunhill, or Sam Gawith. I would love to shake the hand of the man who made this. I'm absolutely blown away with this! Speachless....Get some quick for the popularity of this will cause the "out of stock" message soon.
Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz
This has got to be the best Burley, Virginia and Perique blend I've ever tried that isn't a flake. Smooth and satisfying,deep dark fruit and chocolate covered raisn flavour. Get some and store it up in mason jars. This is an amazing blend.
Samuel Gawith - Bracken Flake 50g
Burning out house.
Lord have mercy, just what is the esence they are using on this tobacco? I swear it smells like the time my uncle got drunk and burned the outhouse down. If you like this...as we say in the south "bless your heart".
Carter Hall - Carter Hall 14oz
Mouth watering GOOD!
This is not inferior or cheap tobacco by any means. This is one of the blends that have stood the test of time. Mostly a burley blend with just enough virginias to make it interesting. Has a nice aroma and nicotene content. Mouth watering good!
Butera - Royal Vintage: Golden Cake 50g
Tangy, respectable Virginia flakes of golden hue. This is best after you've opened the tin,replaced the lid and waited a few months. While you're waiting, the tobacco seems to go through some kind of transformation. Sweet, rounded and heavenly.
Troost - Special Cavendish 50g (1.75 oz)
Please bring back Troost Slices! Troost Slices were great!!! Troost Cavendish is good for tounge bite.
Savinelli - Black Cavendish 50g
This is GOOD!
Smells heavenly,tastes like a lot of aromatics. A crowd pleaser. Chocolate,raisin,rum punchy flavour. For an aromatic this is a go to.
Edward G. Robinson - Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend 12oz
An old writers smoke,
An old friend of mine smoked this. I will not write his name for fear his ghost would haunt me. He wrote some of the very best books on the civil war that were ever written. As for his talking about the Civil war we would refrain, but instead would talk of our pipes and tobacco. He favored this tobacco. I have been told the flavoring is grape. A cavendish tobacco that is mild and fruity.
Capstan - Flake Blue 1.75oz
The best pipe tobacco in the world,
I haven't had a bowl of this since 1998! Mellow,malty, I'm almost in tears. Thanks for bringing this back! The very best pipe tobacco ever produced. EVER!.
Low Country - Waccamaw 2oz
In the tin this smells like a very nice pure Virginia falke. Smells of Malty,hay,tangy and creamy. The right moisture level right out of the tin, the flakes are soft and pliable and load with the greatest of ease. After the lighting ritual this tobacco gives and gives! The sweet Virginia is transported via exotic Izmir that gives the whole taste and aroma a very mysterious depth. A smooth, rich and very pleasing Virginia. YUM!
