Vauen - Auenland 50g
Tin note is a bomb!!!
Tin note is extremely good and strong, whole room smells great now. Unlike the tin note taste itself can’t be described as a bomb… pretty soft and sweet, with some notes of peach, oranges ( more sweet, not sour), maybe even some strawberries or cherry. A lot like Petersons blends, in terms of both taste and behavior. Personally I didn’t detect any tongue bite but I think it’ll be better to smoke this tobacco slowly. Provides with a cool and slow smoke, almost minty. Moisture content is pretty good ( not damp, neither too dry). Room note is great ( I might be subjective but it really is good as described by my Wife). Reminds me of W. O Larsens signature blend and Petersons Christmas blend ( but Auenland is better. The other two are more sour and tend to bite). Pretty good tobacco but nothing extraordinary or super amazing. I’m still glad that I gave it a try. Best things about this tobacco: it’s middle earth themed, tin is pretty cool, tin note and room note are amazing… after opening the tin the whole room will smell wonderfully.

Sutliff - Honey & Chocolate
Chocolate yes - honey not quite
Pretty good, nothing crazy or unique but still enjoyable. Note and smell both contain honey and some chocolate. But when actually smoked chocolate aroma is more present ( more like a dark chocolate, with minimal sweetness). Very soft and mild, smok... es to the ash

Sutliff - Christmas Spice
Very good aromatic
Description is almost perfect, but cinnamon is not that noticeable ( but its still present) a lot like pumpkin spice, creme brulee and molto dolce ( but molto dolce is the most different from the ones mentioned above). Sweet, soft, vanilla, caramel and anise are quite obvious, cinnamon is a bit like a background player, has just a tiny bit of spicy flavor too ( like cinnamon, other spices and black pepper but its a good and pleasant kind of spicy)

Sutliff - 504C Aromatic English
Very food and mild
Very similar to Eastfarthing. Enjoyed it a lot. Could be an all day smoke. Soft, with some tones of sweetness.

Cornell & Diehl - Miskatonic Mixture 2oz
Unsmokable
Cigarette ash. What is said below is not about this particular brand, but about the brand and their peoducts overall. So Cornell & Diehl finally lost my trust... The most inconsistent brand. Some time ago I was amazed by how good their tobaccos are, but on my second, third and fourth try I was disappointed. Taste, flavor, quality was never as good as the first time... Some tobaccos even had mold. I'm not that type of a man who hates on something or tries to throw rotten tomatoes, but just be careful pipers. If you're going to try their stuff be sure to get something else alongside, so that you won't be as disappointed and left without any tobacco to enjoy. Just don't rely ✌🏻

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
The most inconsistent blend and brand
Ok so Autumn evening ( which I tried somewhere around april/may ) was awesome, now I've had it two more.times one was unsmokable ( so I threw it away... Big Can!!!!!) And now I decided.to.try a little bit if bulk, maybe this time it would be as good as the first... Nope! Still bad, better than the second try ( smokable) but still not good. I'm not a hater, I used to love the but cornell and diehl are very inconsistent, changing and sometimes even full of issues. This is the case when names, branding, themes are.cool but it ends there ( doesn't affect tasye or quality)

Cornell & Diehl - Gentleman Caller 2oz
Meh
Cigarette + tiny bits of aroma sometimes ( rarely) didn't enjoy it much

Cornell & Diehl - We Three Kings 2oz
Ok blend...
Don't sense much of the spices, cinnamon or any holiday aromas... To me it's just a regulad OK aromatic... One problem with C&D which I've had is inconsistency ( sometimes blends taste awesome, sometimes ok and sometimes even bad ... Haven't had we three kings too many times but with Autumn evening I've had that problem... One tin was amazing, second one unsmokable). Also there's something like mold on darker leaves ( Cavendish and Perique tend to have it)

Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
Rubber is rubber
Just some rubber tips... What ti expect from them? They re good, theyre ok

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Tapered Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Very good cleaners
Good quality, fluffy, nicely tapered. Amazing for such a price!

Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Molto dolce oe Old toby bulk
Tastes 99% like Molto Dolce, or Old toby, great tobacco!

Sutliff - Z92 Vanilla Custard
Beautiful and tasty!
Rhis blend looks beautiful, but not only it also tastes great! The tin note is mind-blowingly sweet and pleasant, the taste is the same! Great, sweet, soft and consistent smoke!

Cornell & Diehl - Dreams of Kadath 2oz
Crossover?
This blend is almost like a crossover between english and aromatic. You can feel and appreciate natural tobacco but there's slightly more in the background... Small notes of rum maybe? Or vanilla? Great blend!

Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
Awesome blend
This blend is pretty tasty, doesn't bite, has characteristics of both English and an aromatic. A lot like Sutliffs eastfarthing, but with a slightly more obvious sweetness and rum aroma. Pretty sweet, but not too much, little boozy, notes of rum are very pleasant. Sense latakia, perique and some turkish too ( but not too straight forward). I can sense creaminess and tiny bit of spiciness too, leaves good aftertaste and wet/creamy feeling in mouth, nice room note, I think it can be smoked inside. Tin note: smells like a bottle of good rum. ( Perhaps vanilla flavored rum). Strength: mild/ mind-medium. Nicotine: low/ low-medium. Taste: medium Smoked fresh out of a tin, comes a little moist ( but that's the way I actually like my tobaccos, doesn't interfere with lighting or smoking process), since I'm a very slow smoker I need couple of relights, but I think most of you won't need many. Smoked with a briar pipe.

Sutliff - 523 Voodoo Queen
Not bad but could be better
Something between eastfarthing and balkan delight ( by Peterson). Not quite an English blend but pretty similar. Overall it's not bad but the " mocha slices" which were mentioned weren't noticable, mocha flavor could actually make this blend more interesting. Personally I am more into aromatics and English-aromatics, if you like english blends you may actually enjoy it

Sutliff - Pumpkin Spice
Nice Tobacco to try
Strength is mild/ mild to medium. Taste and flavor medium/medium-full. Room note is pretty pleasent. It's a good blend, not the best for me or the one that made me jump out of my socks but I stilk enjoyed it very much. Reminds of Molto Dolce by sutliff a Looot ( or Old Toby) bith consistency, color, cut ir taste and aroma. Just a tiny bit of pumpkin aroma and a nutty taste added. It's a little wet, but had no problem with lighting it, with couple of re-lights smoked it to the end. Overall impressions: pleasant and smooth smoke, good aroma and taste ( more on a sweet side, for its great, others don't like sweet tobaccos), burn was pretty good, cool and not too fast, tastes like Spices ( such as anise, cloves, holiday spices, little bit of nuttiness, pumpkin ( but the pumpkin taste is not too noticable), maybe some vanilla or sugar. Smokes: fresh out of the package. Pipe used: Peterson System Premier 312.

Sutliff - Eastfarthing 1.5oz
Nice Tobacco to try
Tasted woodsy, nutty, almost like autumn leaves (smell), sense tiny bit of vanilla, cloves or anise stars. Room note is pleasant, strength I'd say mild/medium. If you've ever smoked Old Dublin by Peterson you're gonna notice that eastfarthing tastes pretty similar... But old Dublin smells terrible and the taste is not too pleasant at some points... Imagine an Old Dublin tobacco, but a tasty, good smelling and sweeter one. Maybe there are some Turkish tobaccos mixed or balsa leaf don't know... Won't burn or bite, not too wet. Overall great tobacco it's like a crossover, English Aromatic.
