Captain Black - Original 1.5oz
Pouch note is marshmallow chocolatey. Rich deep vanilla with a little maple syrup in the back ground. A good sweet smoke.
Prince Albert - Prince Albert 14oz
The men in my family have all smoked Prince Albert. Good enough for grand dad good enough for me. Tin note of chocolate covered cherries and nuts. Smokes like a dream. Stays lit burns down to the bottom. Chocolate nutty burley flavor. There’s a reason this has been around since 1907..
G. L. Pease - Stratford 2oz
A light VaPer
Tin notes of vinegar and dried fruits. In the bowl it is citrusy sweet and peppery. Reminds me of G.L.Pease Cairo without the oriental.
Edward G. Robinson - Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend 1.5oz
Rich burley nuttiness. The Latakia provides a smoky leathery mouth feel. Highly recommend.
G. L. Pease - Cairo 2oz
Tin notes , bready, dry fruit, vinegar. In the bowl tastes like sweet lemon pepper seasoning.
Lane Limited - RLP-6
Better than Captain Black
My local B&M sells this as their house blend BTCB (better than Captain Black). Boy are they right! I was a tobacco snob and thumbed my nose at aros and codger blends. On a whim I gave CB a try. I fell in love instantly. Notes of chocolate and vanilla. It’s not goopy and ready to smoke right out of the pouch. Someone in a FB pipe group suggested I try RLP. It is captain Black without the chemical taste. I love it and find myself reaching for this blend over my others. A really satisfying all day smoke!
Peterson - Elizabethan Mixture 50g
My favorite Va/Per
I tried this blend based on the rave reviews of a popular YouTuber. I had never tried a perique blend before and at first I didn’t like it. My intuition told me to stick with it and man I’m glad I did. It keeps getting better and better with each bowl. Tin notes of fresh baked pastry and figs/raisin. Imagine a fresh baked Fig Newton and then loading into a pipe and smoking it!
Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
A good every day English blend
Father Dempsey is not the best English I ever smoked but it holds its own among the best of them. Rich, full satisfying smoke. I buy this in bulk. Father Dempsey was the first English I ever tried and it holds a special place in my heart. I recommend it for anyone wanting to try an English blend.
