Mac Baren - Navy Flake 3.5oz
Honey and Brown Sugar
Wonderful flake. Sweet and smoky. Lemon tea sweetened with honey. Brown sugar comes to front near bottom of bowl. Complex sometimes catch nuances or raisins or plum fruit. Really nice
Cornell & Diehl - Professor 2oz
Very Good Complex Blend
Professor is a very nice blend; and, I will add it to my rotation. I'm not quite sure whether to think of this as an English or Balkan blend. As the Orientals are little more forward than the Latakia I guess Balkan is most appropriate. Very complex as I could taste different tobaccos at different times points in the bowl. The blend starts out sweet from Virginias. A short time later the smokiness of the Latakia starts to come forward. Next, the Orientals start to come forward for a period. Finally, I tasted pepper probably from Perique. A very rich and complex smokiness dominate maybe the last quarter of the bowl. Very very nice. I will keep smoking this bloend.
Cornell & Diehl - Vieux Carré 2oz
Exceptional after Cellaring f04 3-4 Years
Outstanding complex blend after cellaring for 3-4 years. I can't say enough good about this. Lots of nuances … fruit, creamy, light smoke from Latakia, some citrus and grass. Can't say enough good about this blend.
Warped - Cloud Hopper 2oz
Big Winner .. If You LIke Cigars
Love it! I could taste the Dominican leaf and Virginia tobaccos. I think the Perique gave it a little bit of spice making it taste more like a Nicaraguan puro cigar. One of the best. I'm gonna try their cigars next.
Reiner - Professional Blend 100g
One of my favorites. Rich, pleasant but not overly intrusive aroma, lots of nuances of fruit, whiskey and sometimes baking spices.
