Missouri Meerschaum - Zenon Straight (6mm)
I was especially attracted to the mouthpiece. It's cool! The hardwood bowl holds a generous chamber and it smokes so sweet,dry and cool!And you cannot beat the price. I am eagerly waiting for the new MM hardwood poker to arrive on Smokingpipes. I am a die hard fan of MM's hardwood pipes.
Missouri Meerschaum - Missouri Pride Straight (6mm)
I have 8 of these guys apart from over 30 other MM cobs. They all smoke incredibly well. But what makes Pride special? 1. It's a natural cob,i.e. not polished. 2. It's cheaper than most other cobs of same size.3. It's available in both straight and bent form. 4. One can use a 6mm filter if one likes. 5. It can be a very good gift. 6. It's a great starter pipe. So hands down, it's one of the best pipes out there.
Low Country - Natural Virginia & Oriental
Smoking it in a Missouri Meerschaum Ozark Mountain hardwood pipe. It's good stuff.Sweet,spicy and a very mild nic hit with natural tobacco goodness and flavour. Recommended.
Missouri Meerschaum - Cornell & Diehl Southport Ferryman
GOOD PIPE, WRONG DESCRIPTION
Yes,Robert C, it's only 1.5 inch deep and the length is neither 6.95 inch; it's only 5.83 inches according to the MM website. Yet I believe it's a good pipe,as most MM pipes are.Smokingpies seems to be a little careless about cheaper pipe measurements. But such things may not be totally uncommon while managing a huge business as Smoking pipes. One more thing,I haven't yet bought this pipe. But I believe it's a good product as I've already mentioned. And in spite of everything,I would like to be a little lenient with our beloved Smokingpipes.
Stands & Pouches - Rossi 2 Pipe Case- Red
I got the case free with a Rossi Vittoria 8645. It's a nice pipe case. It's tough yet quite light and I like the red colour very much. Holds two standard sized pipes, accessories and some tobacco in a little container or zip lock bag. Recommended.
Cornell & Diehl - Folklore 16oz
LUCK FAVOURED ME.
I opened the site at about 11.50 a.m. Indian Standard time and lo and behold,the thing was still available. I immediately ordered one. Now I must wait for 2-3 weeks for the prize to arrive. Three cheers!
Missouri Meerschaum - Great Dane 1.5oz
A mouth watering aromatic. Burns cool with zero bite even if pushed hard,but for maximum flavour and taste should be sipped,which applies for almost all pipe tobacco blends- the milder the draw,the better the taste and aroma. The room note of GD is praised by everyone. A great aromatic!
Missouri Meerschaum - Freehand
I bought this one from the Missouri Meerschaum original website. Though it's a huge pipe it smokes amazingly cool and sweet. This pipe gives me almost 2 hours of incredible pleasure and can easily outperform the best of my briars. You cannot expect a cooler,sweeter and drier smoke from any other pipe,not even any other cob. And I feel it's going to last a lifetime. Very solid build quality. And of course the FREEHAND is beautiful too in its own right.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey
It tastes so damn good I am ready to award it 6*s.In spite of having two 50 gm. unopened tins I ordered 6 ounces of the stuff in bulk.It will remain among my top 5 English blends. Even after many hours in an unfinished pipe this staff retains its taste and flavour. I love Father Dempsey.
Daughters & Ryan - Three Sails
EXCELLENT TOBACCO FOR THE PRICE.
Slightly sweet with a light mouth watering aroma. Room note is very pleasant too and you cannot beat the price. I will always keep some handy.
Missouri Meerschaum - Missouri Pride Straight (6mm)
PROS:1. Unbeatable price.2. Natural cob.3. Featherweight. 4. Respectable chamber. 5.Needs almost zero maintenance. 6. Smokes like a dream. 7. Has got its own rustic beauty. Cons. I have found none. YMMV.
Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East
LOVE AT FIRST LIGHT!
I think the title of my review explains everything. It's a goldmine and definitely going to be among the top on my rotation. A delicious, mouth-watering blend. Hats off to Cornell & Diehl. Going to order more.
Missouri Meerschaum - The Shire Cobbit
AN ELEGANT PIECE!
The Shire Cobbit is a nice pipe,in every respect. I also own the Wizard Cobbit which I love too,but cannot smoke it as often as I wish due to its hefty chamber. The Shire is more approachable. I like especially its acorn/pear shape and its length,let alone how deliciously it smokes. By the way, it's one of my odd 30 MM corncob pipes. Love every single one of them.
Low Country - Hazelnut
A REALLY GOOD AROMATIC
Such a delicious aromatic at this price point,simply incredible! I was pleasantly surprised at the taste and scent of hazelnut in the smoke. The first half of the bowl in an MM cob is very smooth and creamy. Then the strength increases and delivers a nice nic. hit. In spite of being mainly an English smoker,I have been smoking this regularly. A sure winner.
Cornell & Diehl - Black Frigate 2oz
YE DIL MANGE MORE.MY HEART CRAVES FOR MORE
I came to know about this delicious blend from a blog post listing some good summertime smokes. I ordered 2 two oz tins. Here in India we have a hot humid weather (well, mostly). When I lit up the first bowl,I immediately liked the taste and flavours of the stuff so much, I cannot tell. The flavour of rum is intoxicating for me. A great blend by Cornell and Diehl. Planning to buy an 8 oz tin soon.
Arturo Fuente - Exquisitos Maduro
A real favourite little guy.
I love these sticks. Very pocket friendly but by no means cheap. Surprisingly,each stick gives me a satisfying,almost one hour of smoke;I must be a pretty slow puffer. I shared a few with my friends and my little brother and they are very pleased. Packed with several different flavours,these cigars are really, really good. Will order more.
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
Got only 4 oz. of this amazing stuff in store. Wish I had placed order for at least one pound, it's that good.
Amphora - Virginia Blend 1.75oz
What I love about this blend is its combination of strength and taste. The bag note is intoxicating. I love to sniff the bowl when occasionally the pipe goes out. A real winner. Will definitely order more. Five ***** .
Amphora - Amphora Sampler
FIVE BEAUTIFUL STARS IN ONE CLUSTER!
So far I have only tasted the sugary Virginia. But I am quite sure the others will taste pretty good too. Actually I have so much tobacco in stock,I don't know when I will be able to sample them(I mostly smoke only one bowl a day and I have almost 5 kg tobacco in stock). However, the Virginia is delicious. Its bag note is amazing! I love it.
Cornell & Diehl - Chopped Cigar Leaf 2oz
Sweet, strong, creamy and delicious! Smoked the stuff in an MM cob. Couldn't finish as it was past 1 a.m. So I put the pipe aside and resmoked(!?) the rest of the tobacco 8 hours later. It tasted even slightly better. Very good stuff. Though I have 2 two oz. tins of CCL yet I ordered 1 oz. bulk. It came pretty dry,so I kept a coin humidifier (excellent little discs available at Smokingpipes) and that revived the stuff admiringly. I will keep the tins for aging. Don't know if they will age well or at all. I am considering adding the stuff to my not so enjoyable tobacco blends and see what happens. Highly recommended. Wanted to give it full five stars but the website is holding back a quarter of one star in its star bank. Lol.
Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Pipemaster Clean and Cure 2oz
The Best Pipe Freshener.
A very effective product. Cleans and deodourizes any pipe in a few seconds. Well defined using instructions are provided on the label of the bottle. Ordered two more bottles today. Highly recommended. I only wish the manufacturers didn't use the green colour. The label on the bottle is cool.
Missouri Meerschaum - American Patriot 1.5oz
MY FAVOURITE ENGLISH AROMATIC.
This is my second most favourite tobacco,the first being Arango Balkan Supreme. It's sweet, smooth,spicy and flavourful. I ordered two pouches from Missouri Meerschaum two years ago and when I smoked the first bowl,I liked it so much that I immediately ordered another two from Smokingpipes and jarred them immediately on receipt. American Patriot is hands down one of the best Latakia based tobacco at a pocket-friendly price point.
Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Dunhill Pipe Wipe
I AM PLEASED!
I am happy that I ordered the cloth as soon as I saw it was available. On receiving I tried it on a Bisley estate(Made in France). Only a little elbow grease and the pipe became shinier than ever. Very much pleased with the product and am looking forward to trying it on my other briars as well. I would love to give the Dunhill Pipe Cloth a whole hearted recommendation.
Arango - Balkan Supreme
MY STAPLE SMOKE!
Arango Balkan Supreme for me is: 1.Sweet but not overpowering. 2. Creamy. 3.Smoky/Smokey. 4.Tangy. 5. Spicy. 6. Cool. 7.Got no teeth,only the gums of an infant. 8.Delicious,by all means. 9. Shines both in cobs and briars. 10.Has tolerable room note. 11.Has sweet,smoky, mouth-watering bag note. 12. Has several intangible qualities. No wonder Arango Balkan Supreme was judged the number 1 English/Balkan blend in 2014 Chicago Pipe and Tobacco Show.(Did I get it right?) I know this is going to be one of my life-long companions.
