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 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.
