Lane Limited - 1-Q
It is what it is and is good at it.
A fine aromatic. It doesn’t promise to be anything else than that. Easier to smoke and enjoyable for others to be around. Burns on the hotter side, so judicious puffing must be employed.
Mac Baren - HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
One word: Wow!
This is truly something special. I don’t recommend starting your journey into pipe tobacco with this blend, but it’s definitely, as a destination, worth aiming for.
Peterson - Sherlock Holmes 50g
Dunhill Sherlock was the first pipe tobacco I ever lit and I fell in love with VaBurs because of it. When Peterson picked up the line, I was ecstatic. It is ever so slightly different, but brings back great memories just the same.
Cornell & Diehl - Mountain Camp
A good time!
(Update: after much contemplation over many bowls of MC, I now have to say this is an exquisite blend.) Bulk tended to be in the drier side, but an amazing smoke. Latakia makes itself known upfront, and the perique kicks in at the right amount to provide some excitement throughout the entirety of the bowl. Strong without being overpowering.
Peterson - 3 P's Peterson's Perfect Plug 50g
Truly a perfect plug
One of my favorite blends and an absolute perfectly pressed plug. Cellars extremely well, and ages like fine scotch, but is more than pleasant fresh from the tin.
