McClelland - Townsman Cavendish: Silver (Rum) 8oz
Very Subtle Smoke
This tobacco is an excellent smoke, no bite, smokes dry and has a very complex, but pleasing, taste. I was very surprised by the smoothness of the smoke and the great room note. The smoke is very much a long haul smoke time and very rewarding.

Ashtrays - Peterson Pipe Ashtray
What a Pipe Ashtray!
Beefy size, excellent for holding 3-4 pipes and great for keeping pipe tools in the bowl. Very nice piece and well made.

G. L. Pease - Westminster 16oz
Ok but....
I was really disappointed with this blend after reading so many positive reviews. Again it is just my opinion and perhaps others will enjoy it.

Dunhill - Early Morning Pipe 50g
Typical Dunhill
For some reason I feel these Dunhill blends are made in vast amounts and as a result the quality control is lacking and the tobacco suffers. Some love it but not me!

Lane Limited - Black Raspberry
Not my favorite
I think other will enjoy this blend, for me it is a little less than a keeper. Maybe I am too fussy but I found the blend a hog pog of tobaccos and not to my liking.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Czech Pipe Tool
Functional and a Classic
This little tool is just great, inexpensive and long lasting. It works every time and is a real essential for those outdoor smokes and walks. I have several more expensive tools but this one is great and I keep about 4 of them around the house.

McClelland - Premium: Easy Street 50g
A great break from other blends.
This is a really nice blend, unusual and full of flavor. It is the ideal blend for those times you want a change from your regular smokes/blends. The flavor is really amazing and the room note excellent. I also enjoy the smoothness of the smoke.

Pipe Accessories - Peterson Deluxe Leather Stand Up Tobacco Pouch
Nice and Well Made.
I have had mine for months and find it very good in terms of size and moisture retention. Ideal for the traveler and out-doors person who prefers something flexible and resilient.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Obsidian Pipe Stem Oil 15ml
Good solution for old problem!
Never used this before, just tried it and it appears to work very well. Leaves a nice finish and is easy to use.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - PIPNET Pipe Reamer
Excellent!
You get what you pay for especially in pipe reamers. These are very well made and fit properly into just about any pipe. Unlike those less expensive metal one size fits all these protect the chamber from taking chunks of briar or scratching the bowl. Nice set and worth every penny.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Great mellow blend!
Excellent for a long day and the blend is just right saving your mouth from the usual bite. Very nice smoke and reasonably priced. Ideal for those with sensitive mouths.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Tapered Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Work well
Great for fairly straight pipes. The only issue, not deserving of a star minus, is the flexibility they have when they can bend in a bent stem. Otherwise very good and priced right.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Tapered Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Tapered!
These are the best for any not straight stems. I do find that the metal core could be a little tougher as it sometimes bends easily. But over-all the best available!

G. L. Pease - Westminster 8oz
Not my cup of tea!
Sorry I just did not fall in love with this blend. I found it a little dry and rather rough. I must admit I am not an "English" blend smoker so my opinion is just that, mine.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Tobacco Pouch Humidifier (2 pack)
Essential
Really good way to add or keep your tobacco moist, Just put them in water for 30 minutes and they will add the right amount of humidity without oozing water everywhere.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - John Aylesbury Pipe Shape Tool
Nice!
I keep this one on my desk. It is really a bargain and does the job! Well made and reliable.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Cork Ashtray Knocker
Essential!
The best way to save your pipe rim! I used several of these to re-use large cigar ash trays. Very good and functional.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Brigham Stainless Pipe Tool
Great Tool
What can I say? Inexpensive, well made and reliable!

McClelland - Premium: Town Topic 50g
Typical McClelland Excellence
I find this blend to be one of the most clever ones McClelland has made in their aromatic Premium blends. It is some thing like an aromatic brother of Frog Morton on the Town! I find this to be a smooth reading tobacco blend and very enjoyable for those moments relaxing in your favorite chair.

McClelland - Premium: Best of Show 50g
Very Nice Smoke
I just love the variation McClelland offers in their Premium aromatics and this one is no exception. The flavor is excellent as is the room note. One of my favorites and a great break from my British Woods and Lane HG2000.

McClelland - Premium: Pal O' Mine 50g
5 Star!
This tobacco is really a gem, perfect blend. I keep this for weekend smokes as I love the difference this blend offers. I must say it is addictive as the flavor is really unusual and really satisfying. Typical excellent blend from McClelland!

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Black Matte
Excellent
I have 2 of these little gems. They are reliable and very well made. The matte finish is very durable and seems to resist stains of any sort. I brought two to keep one at home and the other I take out fishing or hunting. I have had mine for almost 6 months and the flints still do not need replacing. Having owned a Dunhill lighter I can say without hesitation these lighters are just as good if not better.

Lane Limited - HG-2000
Really a Smooth Smoke
This blend is just perfect for a mellow cool smoke. I particularly enjoy it in the evening after a long day. The taste is really well balanced and the room note excellent. I have a lot of people "borrowing" it and they all like it as much as I do. In fact I now have to order several 8oz sizes to keep the supply current!

McClelland - Premium: Tastemaster 50g
A Great Smoke
I really enjoy this mild aromatic and find it to be one of the best! A very mild and flavorful blend with great room aroma. Worth a try!

McClelland - Personal Reserve: British Woods 100g
Great Blend
A fantastic cold night's blend with fantastic flavor and aroma. I think this is one of the classics but it is mild and very subtle blend. Highly recommend this to anyone.

McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton on the Town 50g
Very Nice
This blend is one of my favorites, a touch of Latakia is perfect. Very smooth smoke and a consistent fine blend.

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Black and Chrome
Old Boy Reliable
I have two of these lighters and love them. Always work and never fail to operate properly. The matte finish lasts and chrome top is a nice touch. The operating parts appear to be machined and well made. Excellent fitment and finish.

Pipe Accessories - Brigham Pipe Stacker Lidded
Great Lid and Storage Solution.
Very clever storage unit and lid for the base pipe storage boxes from the same manufacturer. Very useful for storing lighters and pipe knives, plus other items. Very well made and very nice design.

Pipe Accessories - Brigham Pipe Stacker Deep 3 Pipe Drawer
Nice Storage System
Ideal solution for storing both often used and less pipes in a smart and stackable format. Most storage slots will take 2 pipes, XLs will use a single slot or compartment. Well made and really nice design, a great buy for the money.

McClelland - 221-B Series: Arcadia 50g
Not My Blend
I purchased several tins of this blend after reading glowing reviews...I was not happy with my smoke(s). It seems a little dry and rough taste. But that is just my opinion and McCelland is one of the best blenders I know of, perhaps the tins I got were a little off.

McClelland - Premium: Captain Cool 50g
Smooth!
This blend is a great smoker for those long evenings infront of the fireplace. I have mixed it with McCelland's TasteMaster and found the results amazingly tasty not to mention a great aromatic smoke.

McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton on the Town 100g
Great
Nice tobacco and very smooth. I use this blend every evening and like most of McCelland's blends is a great aromatic and cool to the mouth.
