Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
The tin note had a very very strong scent of maple. Though in my opinion, it could have had a stronger taste. For me, the maple is pretty subtle, almost not there at times, yet on that note I will say I smell of pancakes after so I guess that's nice haha just wish it was more prominent in taste rather than scent. It's good though.
Cornell & Diehl - Mocha 2oz
The tin note is very very strong, almost as if it was soaked in coffee. However, upon lighting it, it's a much more subtle taste. In fact this may be one of the most mellow smokes I've truly had. Little hints of mocha, especially the aftertaste which I don't mind at all. Wasn't too moist which was a surprise. I plan on making this a good morning smoke or relaxation when I'm done with work. No tongue bite at all. May smoke a bit hot at times but it's an easy fix. It's a good, mellow smoke
Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
Still a beginning pipe smoker, enjoyed a couple aromatics and wanted to try my hand with English blends. At first, it wasn't pleasant, I actually didn't like this blend at all. Weeks later, picked it up again and have to say, it's definitely growing on me. Is it anything special? No. But I think that's what it's for. If you want just a basic smoke, nothing special or extravagant, bare bones stuff, then this is great. It's a good step into English blends I think, a foot in the door. Can be a bit harsh.
Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
A wonderful smoke
I'm a beginner with pipe smoking. I've tried different blends and I've got to say, this is a very pleasant smoke. The chocolate/cherry is nowhere near as strong as some have said, in my opinion. Still very much tobacco, but with subtle hints of cherry cordial. Keeping my eye out for other great blends, but this one will definitely be one I continue to enjoy.
