Samuel Gawith - Bothy Flake 50g
This tobacco is really quite good. The flakes are thick and wide and a little wet. I found cutting them into cubes works well. I would say the closest cellar 'cousin' I have to this is Peterson Irish Flake. Similar in some ways yet very different in others. I surprise my taste buds each time I smoke a bowl.
Samuel Gawith - Commonwealth 50g
Pretty Darn Good
A full flavoured smoke with surprising complexity. A totally satisfying experience.
Samuel Gawith - Lakeland Dark 50g
The Holy Grail (possibly)
How have I not discovered this until now?! It is FULL flavoured and wow - some of my, up to now, top ten have been bumped down a slot. This is not a blend for the faint of heart. Give it a go if you've been looking for something BIG.
McClelland - Collector: 3 Oaks Syrian 50g
Great flavour, cool smoking, a definite keeper!
Samuel Gawith - Mayor's Chocolate Flake 50g
This is a great chocolate blend. It stands up on it's own and provides a rich taste experience. The tin I received is a bit moist so a bit of drying time helps.
McClelland - GKCPC: Chocolate Silk 50g
Tasty, Great to Blend In
This has a very nice aroma, a chocolate enough taste on it's own. I find it really shines when blended with other Chocolate blends or even something like a Balkan blend.
G. L. Pease - Sixpence 2oz
A Surprisingly Good Tobacco
I am reluctant to smoke aromatic tobacco. That being said the excellent reviews certainly piqued my interest. Within days of receiving it, Sixpence has made the top 5 of my fav's! It has a surprisingly rich flavour which I find most satisfying.
G. L. Pease - Key Largo 2oz
Among My Top Three
A tremendous blend that evolves flavourfully throughout the bowl. A great surprise and addition to my cellar!
Two Friends - English Chocolate 2oz
Mild Yet Tastey
This has a milder flavour than my usual choices. I usually blend it 50/50 with Bobs Chocolate Flake and WOW what a great flavour!!!!
Samuel Gawith - Black XX 50g
Holy Smoke Batman
This a very intense tobacco. Not for the faint of heart! Beware, it leaves a lingering flavour in the pipe (not always unpleasant).
Cornell & Diehl - Bow-Legged Bear 2oz
I am still trying to figure this blend out. It crumbles easily and lights quickly. The flavour seems surprisingly simple. It does keep me coming back for another bowl.
Mac Baren - HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
A terrific addition to the HH series. Strong, tastey and burns very well. Easily amongst my top ten tobaccos!
Lighters - Kiribi Kabuto Short Black Matte
This lighter is wonderful. The flame is perfect for pipe lighting. It also seems to be very reliable even outside on windy days. I've been using the Zippo flints I had on hand with rather inconsistent results. I have Kiribi flints on order and look forward to a better experience. The Kiribi flints recently arrived. They make a huge improvement in ignition reliability!
Cornell & Diehl - Mississippi Mud 2oz
I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of flavor. Thanks to those who reviewed this. I purchased based on your comments and MM will be in my regular rotation.
G. L. Pease - Gaslight 2oz
Best of the best
Rich, smokey, full and somewhat mysterious. Currently a favourite of mine.
Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
Among the Best
Rich flavour with a pleasant brightness.
G. L. Pease - Navigator 8oz
Tasty with a Delicate Finish
This tobacco is best enjoyed with long, slow draws.
G. L. Pease - Triple Play 8oz
I really love this tobacco - I enjoyed Jack Knife Plug however find the flavour with Triple Play richer, brighter with a touch more spice.
Mac Baren - HH Vintage Syrian 3.5oz
Enhance other blends with spice
I find this is an excellent condiment to enhance other blends.
G. L. Pease - Lagonda 8oz
Pack it tight and enjoy
Lagonda took some time to figure out. For me, if I pack it slightly tighter the flavor really is revealed.
Samuel Gawith - St. James Flake
Always a Wonderful Suprise
Wow what a beautiful taste experience!
McClelland - 2015 Virginia-Perique Flake
A great marriage of flavors!
Peterson - Irish Oak 50g
A Tasty Treat
I quite enjoy Irish Oak and I'd consider purchasing it again if available in larger quanties and/or bulk.
Peterson - Connoisseur's Choice 50g
A Pleasant Aromatic
This was one of my first tobacco purchases when I picked up my pipe again last year. It was an easy blend to like and it helped me start my journey to the wonderful and flavorful world of non-aromatics.
Dunhill - My Mixture 965 50g
I purchased this last fall and cellared it over the winter. I recently opened the tin excitedly and found the tin note very pleasing. My first few bowls were rather disappointing with a lack of much flavor. That being said My Mixture seems to be building character now it's been open for several weeks.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Tapered Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Gets Into Tight Spaces
I find this tapered pipe cleaner extremely convenient.
Samuel Gawith - Best Brown Flake
A Friendly Smoke
Like a conversation with a good friend BBF is a relaxing comfortable smoke.
G. L. Pease - Abingdon 8oz
Incredibly Rich Flavour
After only four bowls this spicy Balkan is hitting my regular rotation!
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Bob's Chocolate Flake
Good but not my favorite
Though I am not usually keen on 'flavored' blends I still find this an enjoyable smoke.
Peter Stokkebye - PS41 Cube Cut
Cool and Pleasant
A nice tobacco - don't walk away from it once lit. I did and found it had smoked itself:)
Samuel Gawith - Best Brown Flake 50g
This is a regular go to in my rotation!
Pipe Tools & Supplies - Gloredo Pipe Cleaners (75 pack)
These are amazing!
Sutliff - Blend No.5 8oz
Smoke it Slow and Cool!
This tobacco has some terrific depth IF sipped slowly.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Bob's Chocolate Flake
Pretty Darn Tasty
This one is growing on me:)
G. L. Pease - JackKnife Plug 2oz
One of my favorites!
Samuel Gawith - Best Brown Flake 250g
This is a decent tobacco
Reiner - Long Golden Flake (Blend No. 71) 100g
Mmmm, Mmmm, Good
Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 3.5oz
