Hearth & Home - Magnum Opus 1.75oz
Smooth Balkan
This is a delightful Balkan mixture that is smooth and rich. It definitely reminds me of Balkan Sobranie from the 70s

Arturo Fuente - Exquisitos Maduro
Maduro Flavor
Excellent full-bodied maduro flavor. It's my current favorite. Box-Worthy for sure.

Punch - Clasico Maduro London Club
The opening note has a pepper finish, but after a few puffs, the pepper settles down and the rest of the smoke is a nice maduro full bodied tobacco experience

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Sweet Black Cherry Twist
Not Cherry
My plug had no cherry aroma and no cherry flavor. Did I get the wrong tobacco? The plug is a bit hard to cut in thin enough coins to rub out and pack your bowl. It takes several false lights before you can get it to burn.

Sutliff - #600 Mixture 79
The first few puffs are pure essence of urinal cake. It then settles down to cardboard flavor. Burns hot, wet and bites.

Lighters - Kiribi Kabuto Black Matte
Solid Design
A beautiful lighter, well made and functional. Nicely packaged too.

Lane Limited - Very Cherry
Strong Cherry flavor, stays strong throughout the bowl, burns a bit hot.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
A Solid Performance
Packs well, lights well, stays lit, cool smoke, no bite. Just not much flavor, but a pleasant smoke.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Prize Winning Tobacco
This is a nice rounded English blend available in bulk. The flavor is superior to many of the tinned English blends I have tried. Smooth, burns cool, no bite. Average number of relights.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
Mild Maple
This tobacco has a maple aroma in the bag, a maple room note, and a mild maple flavor throughout the bowl. Burns reasonably cool and does not bite. Average number of relights.

Sutliff - Creme Brulee
A Likeable Aromatic
Tastes as it smells in the bag. Quite powerful flavor that lasts the whole bowl. Average number of relights and no bite! Goes well with a nice Cappuccino.

G. L. Pease - Robusto 2oz
A Gentle Smoke
This is a nice harmonious English blend that smokes cool and stays lit. The cigar leaf presence is more forward in the room note than the taste.

G. L. Pease - Charing Cross 2oz
A Perfectly Rounded Tobacco
This is one of the best English mixtures I have ever experienced The constituent tobaccos each play a part in the harmonious whole. It burns cool and relighting is average. My current favorite English blend. Recommended.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - American Black Cherry
Smooth & Cool
This blend lights well, stays lit, and smokes relatively cool. The flavor I get is Hay not Black Cherries. Maybe the added some Virginias?

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
Dry Burley
I can only taste the Burley, the Virginia and Perique are not present. A dusty, dry smoke.

Drucquer & Sons - Levant Mixture 100g
Tasty Balkan
Full flavored English blend, burns cool, needs frequent relighting, and it does bite so puff gently.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Obsidian Pipe Stem Oil 18ml
Black is Beautiful
Works as advertised. Especially enhancing a freshly polished stem.

Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Fulfills its Promise
Strong cherry taste as promised, from beginning to end. Mild, no bite. Definitely worth a try.

Sutliff - 526 - Old Professor
This blend is such a mild English, the Latakia is barely there. It's mild to the point of blandness.

Peter Stokkebye - PS306 English Oriental Supreme
Too Much Burley
I wouldn't call this a mild English because it it not like any English I have encountered. The Burley dominates and the Latakia is absent.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
Obviously Latakia
A strong Latakia tobacco is what I expected and that's exactly what I got, so no complaints. Still one star off for not having any other notes that I can discern.

Lane Limited - BL/WB
Light & Mild
Light taste, light aroma and no bite as advertised. No nicotine hit.

Lane Limited - TK-6
Mild Cherry Blend
TK-6 is a mild well-behaved cherry blend. It lights easily, stays lit, and doesn't bite. First 1/3 bowl has a mild cherry flavor, the rest of the bowl is a smooth burly flavor. Recommended
