G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
Picked up my first tin of G L Pease Quiet Nights and I am very glad I did. I am a very devoted fan of C&D blends and I was just a little skeptical at first. Those worries are now gone. This is a very good blend from start to finish. I will be adding more to my cellar and will be sampling more of the Pease blends. This is on track to land at the #1 slot in my rotation. Highly recommend this to anyone who loves Perique and Latakia blends.
Missouri Meerschaum - American Patriot 1.5oz
Got to admit I was a little skeptical before I ordered this but not any more. You can tell right off the light that this is a Latakia base blend but it's not a Lat bomb either. It came ready to smoke right out of the pouch with no drying time needed. Packed good lit good. I was pleasantly surprised with this tobacco. I will be buying more to put in my cellar. Only draw back that I have is that it only come in 1.5 ounce pouches. Wish it came in bulk.
Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany 2oz
Really Good Stuff
Packs well and lights well too. This one will be added to the rotation for sure.
Cornell & Diehl - Nutty Irishman
A Nice Retun Visit
Since October of this year I have been on a VaPer quest and in all honesty fought about the Irishman but this morning when I was selecting by morning smoke I saw my jar of Nutty Irishman and decided it was time to get reacquainted. I was not disappointed. Great smoke on a cold December morning. Glad I have a large jar of this in the cellar.
Cornell & Diehl - Speakeasy Navy Blend 2oz
Really Good Stuff
Just received my first tin of this and having read the reviews couldn't wait to try a bowl. Very easy to light and stays lit smokes cool with a very good taste. If this taste better after 10-15 years I hope that I am around that long to try iy because it's pretty good right now. Will definitely be put more of this in my cellar. It's an easy 4.5/5 in my book. It could easily be an all day smoke.
Cornell & Diehl - Orient Express 2oz
Just finished my first bowl of Orient Express and am loving it. Rich smoke and great flavor. Have found another one to stock up on. Just hard to beat C&D. I make myself try other blends but nothing I have found so far beats a Cornell & Diehl blend.
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night
New Player In Town
Just got my order of Bayou Night today and couldn't wait to fire up a bowl. Wicked good. I have just started sorting through all the English blends and really wanted to try this one. Glad I did. The presence of the Perique is very noticeable especially on the retohale. Not too strong for me but it did get my attention. I will be ordering more to put in my cellar. If you love Perique you can't go wrong with this blend. Go out there and grab you some- you'll be glad you did.
Cornell & Diehl - Bow-Legged Bear 2oz
I have recently come back to pipe smoking and started the journey to find some blends that I really like. I have tried some aromatics and now exploring English blends. Don't know what drew to the Bear but man am I glad I tried this blend. It comes out of the tin right ready to smoke. Easy to light and keep lit. I will be stocking up on this. If you haven't tried Bow Legged Bear you owe to yourself to get a tin. You will not be disappointed. Just a quick shout out for the extra quick service. Ordered it and it was here in two days. Can't beat the blend or the service.
Cornell & Diehl - Habana Daydream
What A Find
I recently tried Cornell & Diehl's “Habana Daydream” while at Low Country Pipe & Cigar and man am I glad I did. I have just recently stated a journey to find me a Va/Per and I have found a keeper. It is a very relaxing smoke- easy to light and stays lit. Will be buy more of this in bulk real soon
Captain Black - Cherry 1.5oz
Not the strongest cherry flavor but a good smoke- I see where people have said that it bites and burns hot but I have not had it to bite me or burn too hot.
