Ashton - Smooth Sailing 50g
Lots of interesting flavours in play. It is quite sweet, and has a potpourri-like room note. In the end, it's maybe a little too sweet/floral for me, but I'm glad I tried it.
Ashton - Rainy Day 50g
Light and relaxing!
Wonderfully light, with a beautiful aroma that's not overly sweet. Burns quite nicely without getting too hot, and the the "room note" is really quite pleasant. It tends to be one dimensional, but does have a little shot of spice from time to time, most noticeable with a retrohale.
Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 8oz
Fantastic blend! For latakia lovers this and "Heart of Darkness" are hard to beat!
Pipe Accessories - Savinelli Goccia 2 Pipe Ceramic Stand - Brown
Nice Pipe Stand
These stands look good and will hold most pipe designs. Took a star off as it may be a touch pricy for what it is, but overall, it's come in handy and is a nice design.
Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East Flake 2oz
I bought the 8oz flake and do not regret it! Definitely has some "Quiet Nights" vibe to it, but slightly sweeter. Latakia is subtle. Leathery, musty, but mixed with some sweet notes make this an engaging smoke. This is one of the nicest burning blends right out of the tin. Extremely smooth. Definitely recommended!
Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
Great Straight-Ahead English
Really nice mild blend! No elements overwhelm; it's just a light, balanced, and straight-ahead smoking experience. It has a mild earthy quality, with a nice aroma of sweetness. It smokes really well right out of the tin.
G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
The definition of a relaxing smoke! A leathery, and earthy aroma, meets with one of the smoothest, and creamiest, smokes that never bites your tongue. I generally prefer latakia heavy blends, but there's something special about this blend that keeps bringing me back!
Hearth & Home - Heart of Darkness 1.75oz
This stuff is incredible. How is it not more popular? The tobacco smells like a wonderful combination of campfire smoke, BBQ, and beef jerky - delicious! I exclusively smoke a pipe, so the low "strength" rating (ie nicotine content) means I can smoke this blend in my biggest pipes over long periods of time without a nasty nicotine overload. Tons of flavour and aroma! If you like latakia, and a smooth smoke without any bite, definitely grab a tin or two!
Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Legend Tamper Redwood
It looks great, It's well built, and it functions really well. The wide scoop pick unscrews to reveal a more precise pick stored in the handle. It's a good buy.
Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Just about Perfect
A wonderful mix of smoldering campfire embers; your grandpa's old leather welding gloves; and a NY peppercorn steak. Not needlessly complex, but an honest, thick, and flavorful smoke!
