Lane Limited - RLP-6
Different -- good, not great
I smoke a variety of aro (an very occasionally, some non-aro) blends, but most often puff Lane's 1-Q and MacBaren's 7 Seas White. This was a nice change, but I don't know if it's something I'd regularly smoke. It did have a bit more punch to it than 1-Q but I found this...sweeter, for lack of a better term. As another reviewer mentioned, there is a sort of fruit flavor that was present in it. Again, this wasn't necessarily bad, but it definitely wouldn't be an all-day puff for me. Again, a nice tobacco for occasional bowls when I need a change from my regulars.
Punch - Diablo Diabolitos
They've got some kick
Definitely a bit stronger and more full-flavored that what I'd usually smoke, but these smoke beautifully and deliver great flavor. These are definitely a nice change occasionally; I'll be ordering again.
Holger Danske - Black and Bourbon 50g
Holy cow, this stuff is bad!!! I love aromatics, but this stuff has a flavor that tastes like old gym socks. I can't for the life of me understand all the positive reviews. Who knows...maybe I just got a bad batch or something.
Lane Limited - 1-Q
I recently bought a bit of this to try, after reading all the positive reviews. When it first arrived, I was a bit unsure because the aroma out of the bag, while not in any way bad, was a bit unremarkable, for lack of a better term. But it packed well, lit easily, burned like a dream, and provided a great taste and a very, very pleasant smoke. I smoked the first bowl by the campfire on one of our annual camping/surfing trips. Several of the girls we regularly camp with commented on how much they liked the room note. Anyhow, this is a very nice aromatic and an excellent smoke; I'll definitely be buying more in the future.
Missouri Meerschaum - Country Gentleman Bent
Cobs always seem to smoke nice, and you can't beat the price. I have a several MM pipes, and they all smoke great. But this one is really awesome because of its bigger than normal (well, for a cob, at least) bowl. I like that it takes a 6mm filter too.
Tampers & Tools - Czech Pipe Tool
This thing is clutch!
The perfect little pipe tool at a great price. These things are great! Since they are so inexpensive, I bought a handful: one for the house, one to keep in my truck, one for my keychain, etc.
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 3.5oz
This is one of my go-to tobaccos!
I have several brands/varieties of tobaccos in my rotation, and most of them are quite good. But this one takes the cake. It has a great aroma out of the tin, isn't too dry or too moist, packs well, lights well, burns well, and (most importantly) tastes fabulous and has a nice room note. This is the tobacco I keep coming back to again and again. I've tried a few of the other 7 Seas flavors (Gold and Royal) and they were just OK. But the Original white tin rocks! Highly recommended.
Borkum Riff - Cherry Liqueur 1.5oz
Mommy, make it stop!
Yikes! This is one of the worst tobaccos I've ever had. It's less "cherry" flavor and more "giant, burning chemical spill" flavor! Seriously, the taste was just so nasty, artificial, and chemical-like, that I had to throw this pouch in the trash after just a few bowls. Avoid at all costs.
