St. Bruno - Ready Rubbed 1.75oz
An Odd Duck, but Good
I’ve been on a quest of late to find any blend where I can actually taste something, not just smell it. I’ve smoked English, Scottish, and Balkan blends for so long my tongue is teflon-coated. I’ve heard of St. Bruno’s, so I ordered a pouch. The first few bowls…meh. However, the more I’ve smoked this, the more I can pick up the taste of the casing and, surprisingly enough, the more I can taste the actual tobacco. It’s mild, to be sure, but I’m beginning to appreciate that. Definitely worth trying, and I think another pouch or two is in the future.

Rattray's - Macbeth 100g
A Good Morning Blend
A bowl of Macbeth, a cup of joe, and you have a good start to the day. It’s a simple, light blend that works. It does burn hot, so smoke slowly. Not an all-day smoke for me, but a definite wake-up blend.

Sillem's - Black 100g
Smooth, Cool Smoke
I do like English blends, and this one is a keeper. I can’t say it’s strong so much as it is very full-bodied. It does smoke very smooth, and it doesn’t heat the bowl up as quickly as some others I’ve had. If you like English blends, you’ll most certainly like this one.

Cornell & Diehl - Founding Fathers
This one surprised me!
The description of the blend enticed me to try it, and I’m glad I did. I’m not much of an aromatic fan, but this blend has a unique flavor and depth that I really enjoy. Room note is very pleasant. This will be a blend I keep on-hand for traveling and being around people. I urge you to try it out.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
Meh
After hearing all the raves about this blend, I bought two ounces to try. I’ve smoked it in various pipes, even a wide-bowled meerschaum. I just can’t get into it. I don’t really taste or smell the maple. Maybe it’s better from a tin than bulk. Regardless, no more for me.

Cornell & Diehl - Pegasus
It’s Good
After seeing a video on C&D’s five under-appreciated blends, I decided to try it. At first, I didn’t particularly care for it. I usually smoke English blends, so this seemed a bit bland, however, the more I smoked it, the more I began to appreciate the woody sweetness and the dryness of the smoke. I can’t stand getting a mouthful of backwash from too moist tobacco. I also like the clean aftertaste when I’m done with a bowl. Many aromatics leave a cloying bleech after smoking. Even latakia will leave an aftertaste with some of the stronger English/Balkan blends. Not Pegasus. This is definitely worth a try.
