Amphora - Original Blend 1.75oz
It's pipe tobacco
Looks great, smells great in the pouch, but tastes like smoke. I've had it in cobs, briar, and clay pipes. I've let it dry, smoked right out of the bag, and let it age for a few months: its underwhelming. It will fill a pipe though! Good job amphora

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Black Irish X
Acquired taste
It tastes of burnt rubber, charred meat, with a sprinkle of leather boot. The bag note is particular. I enjoy it.

Samuel Gawith - 1792 Flake 50g
The best IMO
My #1 smoke. I love the tonquin/call it lakeland flavor. I prefer Virginia and DFK, but this flavor sits great with me (and apparently a lot of others). Must try if you like heavy nic blends.

Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
Black frigate light
The title says it all. I prefer black frigate, however, this will do when frigate is out of stock. The latakia is less pronounced than frigate, but the rum is more pronounced. On the plus side, it burns and packs really well while refusing to go out.

Cornell & Diehl - Black Frigate 2oz
I'm on a boat!
This stuff is excellent! The rum gives it a great sweetness especially when paired with Laphroaig. It's not nuanced or complicated. It's just great!

Dan Tobacco - Milonga 50g
Excellent tin note
This stuff smells excellent in the tin. It is one of the few aromatics I've smoked (English and non-aro smoker) that I can taste the flavors advertised. The tobacco quality is great and not goopy. Recommended!
