About Me:
An old sailor.

John Cotton's - Double Pressed Virginia 1.75oz
The best Virginia I’ve had in fifty eight years. McClelland’s had nothing on this.

Samuel Gawith - Balkan Flake 50g
Perfect in every way.
This is one of the most sublime smoking mixtures I have tried this year. Satisfyingly smooth and piquant. Earthy, leathery, smokey and Mellow.

Daughters & Ryan - Three Sails
Add some Turkish to this blend would you. You’ll have a winner!

Low Country - Natural Virginia & Burley
Simple is best.
Two simple ingredients; 1.Kentucky,Tennessee dark burley leaf. 2. Red Virginia leaf. Rich, naturally aromatic, highly satisfying!

Low Country - Natural Virginia & Oriental
Hey, this is amazing mellow pipe smoking goodness! The measurements of Virginia and Turkish are perfect in every way. Flavors of real butter on sour dough toast, and an aftertaste/ aroma that stays on your taste buds and fingers that’s is sooo good. I would gladly ride a CAMEL, from Chesterfield to get this old gold. This is the only blend of tobacco I’ve ordered back to back 1 lbs. bags.

Cornell & Diehl - Orion's Arrow
My daily dose,
After my morning shower and shave, I look forward to my coffee and pipe. Lately, Orion’s Arrow has been my go to bowl of tobacco. This blend is quite satisfying and simple. Luscious Virginias, a pinch of bold Perique, and a small sprinkling of buttered toast like Turkish. Gentle, smooth and goes so well with a good cup of coffee.

Cornell & Diehl - Bailey's Front Porch 2oz
Pure cream..at age
I’m smoking a bowl of nineteen year old Bailey’s Front Porch. This was purchased in the large tin in 2004,and transferred to a large Mason jar for long term storage. The tobacco has transformed into one of the creamiest, and satisfying smokes! This blend was good when purchased new. This blend is pure cream now!

Fonseca - Toro Gordo
A wonderful cigar that was built to salute the Fonseca of yesterday. My Father did this one so well, they could just concentrate on this one blend for the next fifty years! An exquisite flavor profile of new car leather, earth, and almonds. After smoking a new one and an aged, I’m not sure which one I liked best. A fantastic cigar. I’m just amazed at how good one this really is.

Sutliff - J4 - Burley
Smooth, perky burley, with a slight aromatic taste and flavor that is outa this world good! My favorite Sutliff Burley!

Cornell & Diehl - Morning Light: Boker Or 2oz
O M Goodness!
This is Bayou light, but not to light, but just right. Has a handsome aroma for a full flavor blend. It certainly would be nice to purchase this blend in a large tub.

Cornell & Diehl - Oak Alley 2oz
Another perfect blend by C&D
Sublime, silky smooth, mouth coating like a fine wine. The oriental provides a sweet, sourness laced into the Virginia. The perique gives it a deep dark fruitiness. I cannot pick my favorite C&D blend. It’s a toss up between, Oak Alley, Orions Arrow, Exhausted Rooster, or Yorktown. All these are perfect blends.

Cornell & Diehl - Yorktown 2oz
So incredibly good. The Virginias are wonderfully sour and mouth watering. I could write a lot more good words about this fine mixture but, I’m going out on the porch to my rocking chair for more Yorktown!

Cornell & Diehl - Orion's Arrow
A bright mixture with dark flecks here and there that I’m quite sure is perique. Smelling the mixture in the bag; bright Virginia fermented with a sweet but sour smell from the Turkish. Smooth as silk smoke with a sweet but sour taste, also buttered toast in the flavor. This is one special blend that I could smoke all day. It’s like the best Turkish cig you’ve ever had. The aroma is pleasant and not acrid. The balance is perfect. Another exquisite blend from C&D!

Cornell & Diehl - Night Train 2oz
Oh yes!
Outstanding! I Love everything about this fine blend! Smooth, good kick, it’s got a leathery new car feel. The taste and aroma are divine.

Rattray's - Brown Clunee 100g
Mild and mellow,
Mostly Flue cured Virginia leaf. The burley and dark fired are quite minimal, even to the point that they are barely noticeable. All ingredients make for a mild delight with just the right flavor. Simply scrumptious.

James J. Fox - Campanile 50g
This tobacco blend is designed to be more like a Turkish ( rhymes with jiggerette). Hence the acrid taste and aroma. If you understand this blend more, the more you’ll appreciate it it.

Cornell & Diehl - Exhausted Rooster 2oz
My favorite C&D blend!
( This fine flake is better than any of those European Blends, and the tobacco is grown in the U.S ) The Virginia is up there with the best of the Virginias out there. The dark fired Burley and perique add the spice. What a fine blend! I’d give this one more star if I could. Sip slowly with eyes closed. This one has some horsepower, ahhh, enjoy. Friggin amazing!

Sutliff - Z88 Maple Walnut
Autumn in a pipe! This is a most enjoyable blend, that will absolutely turn heads for compliments. Good old rocking chair tobacco. This tobacco may need a wee bit of air and sun to dry out. Lights easy, stays lit. Tastes as good as it smells. It says, Autumn is in the air.”

Newminster - No.403 Superior Round Slices
No nun,
If you enjoy Three Nuns, you will not enjoy this so much. Three Nuns is mellow hay like Virginia with just a tinge of dark fired. This blend is run of the mill Virginia with quite a bit of dark fired. The blend is sharp and has a rough aroma. Every time I’ve tried to enjoy this blend it’s made my throat scratchy.

McConnell - Oriental 50g
High Class mixture here.
This is what a perfect oriental blend tastes like, smells like, etc. Absolutely enchanting! Double sublime!

Low Country - Waccamaw 2oz
Enchanting, relaxing, satisfying. Should win some kind of an award. SUBLIME.

Dan Tobacco - Old Ironsides 50g
Battleship Missouri
Having served onboard the U.S.S. Missouri BB-63 during the Gulf War/Desert Storm, I find myself quite intrigued by this blend! With the heavy dose of Latakia, one would assume the ship would list to one side. The dark fired, and perique, serve as good ballast, while the Virginia holds a steady hand at the helm. This is as smooth and as luxurious as they come. A good winters night smoke.

Comoy's - Cask No.4 3.5oz
Quite nice,
Dark and neat rectangular thin flakes. Sweet Virginias and a good dose of perique. There is a topping that agrees with the blend and makes for a really nice taste and aroma. I doubt I would purchase again, but I’ll sure smoke the rest of what I have left and decide.

Peterson - Flake 50g
Still just right,
This flake still has the fresh bright zip, and sweet/ sour flavor as when Dunhill prepared this product. Exquisite rectangular medium brown flakes that need some drying time. Lovely Virginia that begs to be sipped to reap its rewards. Please know that, nothing will improve in taste or with age whilst contained in a vacuum sealed tin. Dump the tobacco in a large mason jar and stow it away. This fine flake is truly satisfying.

Peterson - Royal Yacht 50g
I once loathed this blend. I jarred up two tins and set it aside for a few years. Recently I have re-visited that jar and found it is now everything I’ve been told it was. The strength is still there, but in a more relaxed way. The Virginia is lovely and sweet. The whole blend is just wonderful.

Peterson - Standard Mixture 50g
A most satisfying blend of Virginia and Turkish. Mouth watering.

Rattray's - Highland Targe 100g
The Virginias are sweet and mellow next to the buttered toast like Turkish. A wee bit of Latakia to add depth. The blend is luscious!

Samuel Gawith - Navy Flake 50g
Too much anchor,
If this is a Navy Flake, then I’m Sir Francis Dashwood. I smoked this right from the tin. By the way, tobacco does not age in a vacuum sealed tin. The sloppy dark flakes were damp and needed a few hours to dry. Alright, the tobacco needed direct sunlight and a power fan to dry to an ideal smokable humidity. After I loaded my pipe and added flame the Latakia was the main component I smelled and tasted. The Latakia is far over used in this blend. Strong, and aroma that is barely tolerable.

Amphora - Burley 1.75oz
-Minus one
This is Original without the Turkish. It’s excellent. I still prefer original over this one.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Scotch Flake
Quite good.
Sweet Virginia with only a tiny touch of Turkish for effect. Flavors of mild cocoa and delicious Virginia tobaccos. The Turkish nudges the cocoa along and makes for a really fine taste.

Capstan - Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
The Virginia
I smoked this fine tobacco thirty years ago before it broke my heart and disappeared. I’m quite thankful it’s back and now offered in a rubbed out version. There’s no other Virginia quite like Capstan. This is good pure Virginia that has already been aged for you. So satisfying!

Peterson - University Flake 50g
Here we have a Virginia and Burley blend, with very little umph. A berry topping is added to try and make up for the lack of flavor. I do however enjoy boosting this up a notch with HH Old Dark Fired.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Bogie
Archaic good,
I bought a pound or so of this rope back in 2016. I immediately put it into a tall mason jar and into an old steamer trunk for a long rest. This is Autumn 2022 and I’m not enjoying this fine tobacco. It still has the nic punch! I cut it with a cigar lance, rubbed it out and loaded into my Northern Briar Canadian. Flavor is smoky and mellow. Taste is bold and pleasing. Mellow but heavy. It’s good if that’s your thing. Be careful with this one,it could knock your senses back to the sailing days.

Cornell & Diehl - Billy Budd 8oz
Ok, this is good,
I’ve tried many CnD blends . Most of those blends I really didn’t care for, except Briar Fox, and now this one. Billy Budd hits the Latakia spot.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Bosun Cut Plug
The drier the better
Let this age out until it nearly dries out. It’s a fine line but WOW, is this ever good. You still get a little of the Lakeland flavor, and the tobacco is soft, mellow and will really surprise you with how much flavor you’ll really get.

Sutliff - Revelation Match
Far better,
As another brother of the briar has noted, this definitely is better than the original. The original had small cubed burley, and maybe most of the leaf we see here. This blend is quite similar, but better. Large leafy pieces of bright Virginia, chunks of burley, pieces of fire cured and..perique? If perique is here it’s very hush. This is an all day smoke with excellent flavor and pleasant room note.

Sir Walter Raleigh - Regular 7oz
A trusted friend
No longer made in USA. Now made in Denmark with the same recipe and cut. Still warm and comfy, cool and never a bite. The only thing I notice is the cocoa. It seems to have more cocoa added with the licorice flavoring. Still tastes great, maybe, just maybe…even better.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - #25 Mixture
Turkish Cigarette.
Ribbon cut tobacco with the various types mentioned above. The ratio of the different types of tobacco make for a toasty buttery smooth blend. The taste is balanced and rich. After taste is of fine Turkish cigarettes. A most outstanding blend of tobaccos.

Rattray's - Black Mallory 100g
Sweeter than Red Rap. Smoky, and leathery like Red Rap. It’s Red Rap, with the added sweeter Virginia. Hits the right spots.

Cornell & Diehl - Burley Flake #2 2oz
Burley Heaven
If you enjoy Burley tobacco, you will absolutely fall for this one! Wonderful billows of burley with just a hint of sweet hay background. Needs to be in a one pound bag.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Scotch Mixture
Mellow, and malt like, though I’m quite sure there is no Scotch whisky used in this blend. The Latakia is only there to create a different taste and flavor, not to present as a smoky english. I might purchase again.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - American Delite
Pleasantly delicious
This taste like a lot of other…American aromatics. The tobacco looks just like the picture. The taste is pleasant and there isn’t a hint of Lakeland essence. DRY IT OUT A BIT. This blend comes wee bit damp. Has Aquitaine a nice aroma. Burns well.

Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East 2oz
Middle of the road
How about, Star of the West since the wise men came from the East, the star was in the west. All that said, this is a good burley based oriental. It’s not a great blend,but nether is it a bad or bland blend. I wouldn’t purchase again.

Dan Tobacco - Da Vinci 50g
In over forty years of smoking a pipe, this has to be, without a doubt, the best Aromatic I’ve ever tried.

Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany
Not bad.
I like this blend, but I’m not exactly bowled over by it. As far as it being like the old Revelation, I think it needs more burley. This blend has a nice satisfying taste and flavor. I added 2oz. Of Sutliff’s Burley Delight to 4 oz. of Epiphany, it became more like the Relevation I remember.

La Gloria Cubana - Serie R #5 Natural
Five star
A consistently good cigar, year after year. Delicious in every way. Leaves quite a nice after taste.

Solani - Silver Label - 660 100g
Supreme cream
This tobacco comes in a non- vacuum sealed tin, but please, don’t let that bother you. A generous amount of slightly broken flake tucked inside a plastic pouch. The red Virginia is sweet and sour, with a creamy smoky fired leaf. I taste no additives in this blend. Balance in this blend is key. An incredibly good tobacco. If this tobacco came in bulk, I’d purchase five pounds.

McConnell - Scottish Flake 50g
Not good
Tasteless. Not worth the price. Don’t stock up on this one. I’d turn back if I were you.

McConnell - Special London Fine Cut 50g
Roll roll, roll your...
Good tasting flue cured Virginia in shag cut. Shag is quite a fine cut and makes the tobacco look almost like moss. It makes for easy use and smoking. You can smoke this in a pipe if you like. Suit yourself, it’s good either way, and has a nice aftertaste.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
To heck with a Balkan Sobrainie,
If this isn’t equal to Balkan Sobraine, it’s better. Smooth, creamy rich and leathery. A morning smoke or an all day pipe. Delicious!

Sutliff - Lord Nelson
A nice bright and smoky taste. Not overly smoky, but just enough Virginia to make it smooth and quite enjoyable.

St. Bruno - Ready Rubbed 1.75oz
Smooth Satisfaction,
Some ready rubs are not like the flake versions. Have no fear, this ready rubbed is the same quality recipe as the flake version. The only difference, it’s already broken up, rubbed out for you. The dark fired Kentucky leaf and Virginia, together with a very conservative amount of tonquin bean extract, make for quite a satisfying smoke. So glad this has been reintroduced into the states. I smoke this daily.

F & K - Lancer Ready Rubbed
Long, dark, slightly broken flakes. The rich scent of far eastern tobaccos, (Latakia) that have been smoked over wood fires. The naturally sweet tingle of Virginia tobacco. I remember no English style tobacco as good as Lancer Slices in my forty-five years of smoking pipes. Glorious is a word that comes to mind.

Mac Baren - Burley: London Blend 3.5oz
Fine tobacco!
It’s finally back from a five year hiatus! If you’ve never tried this one you haven’t tried Burley. Not sure why it was called London Blend, but ok. Creamy chocolate Burley tobacco. One of the very best Burley pipe tobaccos ever.

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular
This pipe tobacco, when smoked, tastes and smells just like it does in the bag...maybe even better. I’ve never gotten so many compliments! My wife, who hates the smell of all things tobacco even said this one smelled nice, I thought I’d fall off the porch!

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.

Sutliff - 507C Virginia Slices
Just Virginia,
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. Get enough to set some back in your old cedar chest or trunk of the car. Put it somewhere that you’ll almost forget it was there. Age does this flake Justice, and you’ll salivate smoking this after 1+ years aging. It’s excellent new, and phenomenal aged.

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
Simple pleasures,
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
Heart racer,
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
Satisfaction guaranteed,
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. - Coniston 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
Old Injaa,
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!

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
Light tobacco.
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. Smoked slowly, you are rewarded by sweet Virginias!

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
Very Good.
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
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
Incredibly Good.
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
Sweet Dreams.
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
Very Good.
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
Latakia Bomb.
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 Flake
Age it.
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
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
Mysterious debate,
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
Good stuff,
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
So fiine!
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.
