Cornell & Diehl - Byzantium
高L优品 Superior Oriental
L草O草比例很高，品质也不错，P草带来的辛辣感和泥土味增强了过鼻的体验，味道干净醇厚饱满。另外时不时有些明显的奶酪味出现。我买的散装的，湿度很好，醒十多分钟就够了。斗温稍微有点高。 With high proportion of good quality Latakia and Oriental tabaccos, the blend is pure and mellow. The Perique gives me a spicy feeling and a soil-like smell when blow via nose. And there is a clear cheese flavour at times. I bought a bulk package, and the humidity is right, only need to dry it out for about 10 minutes. BTW, the temperature is a little bit of too high.
Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
三宝最次 Worst of Dunhill Best 3
三宝（睡帽、晨鸡、965）中唯一不喜欢的（但也不讨厌），L和O比较少，烟气有点寡，尤其后段，就像菜吃完了扒白米饭一样。P家复刻得还算准确，生闻有区别，烟气差别不大。 The only one I don't like in Best 3 of Dunhill（Nightcap, EMP and 965). L and O tabacco is too little, and the smoke is a little bit of boring. Especially the ending, just be like eating raw rices dueing to all dishes having been eaten up. The reproduction from Peterson is accurate engough. There are some differences in smelling, but less in smoke.
Mac Baren - Original Choice 3.5oz
简单香甜 Simple and Sweet
我抽的第一款草，简单香甜的香草味给了我一个对抽烟斗的好印象。尽管我如今几乎不抽调味草了，但若非这款草，我可能不会入坑烟斗。不过U1S1，原料一般。 It was my first pipe tabacco. A simple sweet vanilla smell gave me a good impression of pipe smoking. Without it I might not become a pipe smoker, although I hardly smoke aromatic tobaccos now. Being frank, however, the material is not very good.
Samuel Gawith - Full Virginia Flake 50g
不行 No, thanks.
我第一款纯V，毁了我对纯V的所有期许，之后我再不贸然试纯V草了。当然此后还是找到几款不错的纯V。FVF就像烟味大的紫云，粗糙寡淡，比紫云好点，不如软珍。 It was my first full Virginia, and it destroyed all my expectation to full V. Since this, I had decided not to try more full V rashly. Of course I really found some good full V tobaccos after this. FVF is like Purple of Yunyan(a cheap cigarette in China, $1.4 a pack) with thicker smoke, rough and boring, may be better than Purple of Yunyan, but must be worse than Soft-pack Treasure of Yunyan(another Chinese cigarette, $3.4 a pack)
Samuel Gawith - Balkan Flake 50g
不行 No, thanks.
草太湿，要醒到比较干味道才能完全表现出来。烟量大，但是单薄。拉草太少不给力，V草的香甜也不行，跟香烟里面塞了点拉似的。 Too moist, must dry out it enough for expressing all the flavours. The smoke is thick, but dull and feeble. The Latakia is too little, and V is lack of aroma and sweet. It's like a cigarette which is shave with a little bit of Latakia tobacco.
Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake 16oz
中等里最好，优秀里最差 Best in averages, worst in bests.
就像炸鸡一样，马坝草好不到哪里去，但绝不会差。烟气并不丰满，但是很典型。拉草的特点非常清晰。味道让我有一种坐在燃着香料的波斯人的房间中的感觉，又有点像外婆的雪花膏。有的人觉得是羊膻味，我不觉得。总之是款不错的口粮草，简单却不简陋。 Like fried chicken, a Mac Baren blen would never be bad, but also it couldn't be excellent. The smoke is not rich, but representative. The characteristic of Latakia is clear enough. The smell makes me coming up with a scene of sitting in a persian chamber with burning spices, and also my granny's face cream. Someone will describe it as a odor of sheep, but I don't. After all, this is a good daily blend, simple and fine.
G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
一般般 Just good
标准的英式配方。烟气强劲，层次丰富，配方均衡，但是有点尖锐粗糙，缺乏亮点。烟是好烟，尤其原料不错。但是并没有吸引我，不会回购。 A standard English blend. The smoke is strong, but sharp, rich, but rough, balance, but boring. I must admit it's good , especially raw materials. But I was not caught, and I shan't pay for it again.
Peterson - My Mixture 965 50g
终身粉 Love it forever
D家三宝里最喜欢的就是965，味道饱满丰富，甜美圆润，浓郁的奶酪香。P家的965虽然和D家略有差别，但是整体特点和优点都保留了。这个味道任何草都替代不了。 965 is my favourite Dunhill tabacco. The flavour is rich, full, sweet and smooth, with cheese-like smell. Although there are differences between Peterson's blend and Dunhill's, the foundamental characteristics and merits are kept well. There are no alternatives for 965.
Savinelli - Brunello Flake 100g
高甜花果香 Sweet and Fruity Fragrance
我最喜欢的V草。切片码得极整齐。开罐后浓郁的花和果脯香迸发出来。草略湿，需要醒下，不然烟气又烫又寡淡。前段极甜，带点酸，像果汁。后段甜度下降，有焦糖和烤谷物的香味，像没气的格瓦斯。 讲真我很讨厌纯V，除了这款。一开始买它完全是因为布鲁奈罗这个名字，来自我最喜欢的红酒之一。 It's my favourate V. Flakes are exremly neat. Once we open the tin, a rich sweet aroma of flower and preserved fruit will bursts out. The tobacco is a bit of moist, so we need to dry out, or the smoke will be hot and flavourless. The beginning is very sweet, within a mild sour flavour, tasted like juice. The ending is like a flat Kvas, with flavours of caramel and baked grains, but less sweet. Actually I really don't like full V at all, but this one. The first time I bought it only dued to the name of Brunello, one of my favourite wine. 上面评价是18年产的，这次买了20年产的。花香比较淡，主调是果脯和烤谷物，甜度也远不如18年产的。所以降了一颗星。 The above is for a tin produced in 2018, I get a 2020 one this time. The flavour of flowers is much less, and keynote is preserved fruit and baked grain. Alse much less sweeter than the 2018 one. So I removed one star.
Cornell & Diehl - Habana Daydream 2oz
寡淡刺鼻 Boring and Spicy
我只灰过几支茄，全是古巴的。我竟傻屄地期待这玩意儿有古巴雪茄味。结果烟气没什么香味，还没香烟香，过鼻劲大。 Since I just have tasted little Cigar before, all of which are cubano. I falsely expected this blend would taste like cubano cigar, and it's not. Silly of me. On the other hand, I could hardly taste any aromatic in the smoke. Even tasteless than cigarettes. And it burnt my nose, so spicy and dry.
