John Aylesbury - Dragon Flake 50g
Superb
This is an excellent blend that gets better with age. Just cracked a tin from 2021 and thought to myself. "How is it that I've waited so long to come back to this one." Highly recommend giving it a good.

Warped - Scarecrow 2oz
Autumn Vibes
This is an enjoyable blend that is a personal favorite during the fall season. The caramel and candy corn notes make this an interesting and original blend. I hope this becomes a yearly release so I can enjoy it for years to come.

Tampers & Tools - Larry Blackett Piper's Pal Bamboo Tamper
Awesome Tamp
I've picked up a lot of Larry's tampers and this design has been one of my most used and personal favorites. Larry's a great guy who does excellent work, highly recommend all his tampers.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Desert Island Blend
This blend is truly excellent if you're a fan of orientals. It has a decent amount of latakia but not a lat bomb, the orientals shine through in the best kinda way. A perfect choice if you had to pick one blend to smoke forever. A must have in my cellar and for the winter rotation to help get through those cold nights and days.

Peter Stokkebye - PS400 Luxury Navy Flake
Excellent flake
So Comoy's #4 was my favorite navy flake by far but it seems to be gone, possibly for good. I was looking for an alternative and came across this flake. It's the closest thing I've found in terms of flavor to replace an old favorite. Quite an enjoyable smoke, highly recommend picking some up if you've never tried it before.

F & K - Bat with a Hat 1.5oz
Thought-provoking
I'm not usually and aromatic smoker but this blend sounded interesting so I took a chance. Not bad at all I must say. Sweet, smooth and flavorful it was and quite enjoyable. Definitely Cavendish foward with hints of this and that peppered in. The caramel notes are foward and followed nicely by the burley. It's worth checking out and will been in my fall rotation going foward.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Blitz Pipe Cleaners (80 pack)
Perfect
This is a great pipe cleaner, better than most that I've had experience with.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Bob's Chocolate Flake 50g
Excellent
Such a unique flavor and mouth feel on this one. The hints of chocolate and vanilla are subtle enough to not overpower the tobacco notes. Hard to come by but well worth the wait when you do get ahold of it.

Sutliff - Christmas Spice
Great holiday smoke
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. The caramel forward with hits of vanilla pleases the pallete and a nice finish with a hit of cinnamon. I can see myself returning to this every year as the holidays make their return.

Sutliff - Cringle Flake 2021 1.5oz
Excellent
With some very pleasing to the pallete Virginias and a subtle smoothness from the aged perique, this one's definitely a crowd pleaser.

Stands & Pouches - Rattray's 1 Pipe Combo Pouch Black Knight
Works Great
Nothing special here, just a good functional pouch. Not a bad price, definitely recommend it.

Stands & Pouches - Economy Folding Pipe Stand
It works
Cheap plastic but in a pinch it works.

G. L. Pease - Abingdon 2oz
It's a hit
Picked this up after hearing a positive review on my favorite pipe smoking podcast and was excited to give it a go. I pulled it out to share with a few buddies of mine one night and everybody loved it. Even the guy trying a pipe for his first time loved it. Seal of approval all around. Get it.

Rattray's - Old Gowrie 50g
Love it!
I love this one, nice smooth flavorful smoke. The only problem, it so hard to get more here in the states. If you find it, definitely pick it up.

Sutliff - Frosty Mint
Just can't
I have tried to find a way to enjoy this and I just can't. Tried a full bowl of it first, horrible idea. I've tried to mix it into other things, just ruins it. I'm not giving up as I love mint but after a year of trying I haven't come up with a good use for it. Can't recommend it but to each his own I guess.

BriarWorks - Pete's Beard's Blend 2oz
Mediocre
I tried this one on a recommendation from a fellow pipe smoker. He seems to love it, me not so much. It's a decent blend but I find myself thinking of other better blends I'd rather be smoking while puffing on this one. This is one you should try still though, who knows it might be the one for you.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Excellent
I really enjoyed this one, highly recommended.

Amphora - Amphora Sampler
Good value
Not bad at all for a pouch tobacco. I think the burley is my favorite, but they're all decent.

Sutliff - J4 - Burley
It's good
I enjoyed this one, just a straight up burley for burley fans.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Enjoyable
Not a bad English blend, while I've had better I've definitely had worse. I'd recommend this one.

BriarWorks - Sweet Tea 2oz
It's ok
It's ok. Middle of the road, not special.

Comoy's - Cask No.4
Nice
Smooth and flavorful right down to the bottom of the bowl. Very nice!

Warped - The Haunting 2oz
Not for me
Very heavy on the cigar leaf, great if that's your thing but stay away if it's not.

Sutliff - A Taste of Summer 1.5oz
Definitely Peach
This one is just ok. The peach note definitely comes through. Very wet, took days for me to get it smoke ready.

Solani - Aged Burley Flake - 656 50g
Most Excellent
This is my favorite burley to smoke. Nice and smooth, great mouth feel and excellent flavor. Highly recommended.

Amphora - Burley 1.75oz
Approved
Not bad for a pouch tobacco. Very nice burley.

Cult - Militia 50g
Not great
This one was a miss for me. Love the blood red moon but this blend couldn't compete. Honestly it tastes like soap to me and I was the kinda kid who got a lot of that in the mouth in my time.

Lane Limited - Black Raspberry
Raspberry good
I like this one, definite raspberry flavor and a light smoke. Much better than the for some reason loved 1q.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Just ok
Some people really love this one, but I'm just not getting it. Nothing great or special about it and nothing horrible either. Pretty average at best.

Capstan - Flake Blue 1.75oz
Classic Hit
One tasty Virginia flake, definitely worth your time and consideration.

Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Excellent
Very good, I found myself keeping a special pipe just for this blend. Highly recommended if you're a cherry lover.

Sutliff - Burma Road
Burma Road is calling again
This is a great light anytime, anywhere solid gold smoke for me. I ended up buying a 4oz bag when it was on sale to give it a shot and I'll never look back. I'd recommend it all day long, definitely a must try at the very least. So pick up a pouch and happy smoking my friends.
