Foundation Cigar Company - The Tabernacle Broadleaf Robusto
The room notes and cold draw were intoxicatingly good, but unfortunately the rest of the experience is something I will not be repeating, with this stick, anytime soon.
NUB - Maduro 464 Torpedo
I had to fight with this nub to keep it burning. The choice of tobaccos and their favorable and aromatic profile was very enjoyable. It was the awkward construction of this particular stick that made for a challenging experience. Win some, lose some.
Padron - Serie 1926 Maduro #35
If I ever get shipwrecked and marooned on a deserted tropical island I hope a case of these ethereal sticks washes ashore with me.
Padron - Dámaso No. 12
Very pleasant flavor profile. The draw was perfect. Burned evenly. Good little nic hit towards the end. Definitely will add more to the humidor. 4.5 stars.
Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 1.75oz
Every aspect of this tobacco is remarkable. Definitely a keeper.
Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake 1.75oz
This is a pleasant smoke, but probably will not order more.
Lighters - Kiribi Kabuto Short Black Nickel
This little lighter packs a big punch. Solid and dependable workhorse.
G. L. Pease - Spark Plug 2oz
This is the stuff dreams are made of. Everything about Spark Plug is exceptional.
Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding Bourbon Barrel Aged 2oz
If you are having a bad day, this deliciousness will make your troubles temporarily melt away. Complex, sublime and ethereal. Highly recommend.
Reiner - Professional 100g
One of the most pleasant aromatics I’ve encountered. Highly recommend.
Dan Tobacco - Salty Dogs 50g
Prepping this richly dense plug is part of the enjoyment leading up to a pleasant smoking experience. A little on the pricey side, but well worth it.
Filters & Adaptors - Savinelli 6mm Charcoal Filters (35 Count)
These are functional filters which can also be employed in a corn cob pipe. (i.e., MM Country Gentleman)
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Fragrant, rich and sweet tin notes. A little on the moist side, but airing out 10 - 15 minutes beforehand does the trick. Not much of a nic hit. Thick smoke with a subtle room note. All in all a very pleasant smoking experience.
