Cornell & Diehl - Orient Express 2oz
It is similar to Peterson My Mixture 965, but like a step up. A little stronger in nicotine, a little more full flavored and a little better all around imo!
G. L. Pease - Stratford 2oz
It's nice, but too lite for my liking
The bright Virginias in this are very nice. My tin was very dry, not sure if that's normal, but for a ribbon cut it just burns way too fast. I am going to rehydrate it. If I'm wanting something super lite, I'll pull this out again, but it was just overall not packing enough punch. C&D Bayou Morning is excellent and quite strong, I'd put this on the other end of the spectrum.

Great smoke, but bites!
This is a tricky one. Need to experiment more cause it's hard to smoke without getting a bite. If somebody has tips please share as I'd love to smoke this regularly!
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning 2oz
Spicy, Rich and Creamy smoke
At first I was a bit turned off because it was so spicy. After another bowl or two, I think the tobacco had gotten a little air and seemed to mellow out. Now I'm just loving it! It's got a lot of spice, but the Virginias are really rich and tangy. The smoke is beautifully creamy and the broken flake smokes like a dream. I think it's the best burning tobacco I've ever had actually. It's perfect right out of the tin and just stays lit, never bites and smokes to the bottom. It is also pretty strong in nicotine, which I like. I've also used it for mixing into other lighter VaPers to add some spice and it's perfect for that too. I've already ordered more!
War Horse - Bar 1.75oz
Not that amazing
After reading the great reviews I guess my expectations were too high for this one. It's definitely unique, but I found my first bowl to be very lackluster. The tin note is very strong fruity, spicy, Amaretto and room note is nice as well. The tobacco is a really dense cake which breaks apart easily and the moisture level is pretty good. I'm not really a fan of aromatics, so maybe that's it, but I only found the taste and overall smoking experience to be OK and nothing exceptional. It tastes decent and the nicotine is strong enough, but I can't see myself purchasing this again, although I'll try another bowl or two just to be fair.
