Cornell & Diehl - Gray Ghost 2oz
It’s okay
Having smoked just about every cigar blend out there I can say personally this is nothing special. The tobacco looks like someone scraped it off the ground; looks dirty. It’s definitely cigar forward but it’s average stuff. It’s decent smoke I guess. You can find a lot better

Reiner - Blend No. 71 100g
Beautiful smoke
I waited over a year for this to come back in stock and it was worth it. A perfect blend of all components. The Virginia’s are superb quality and just the right amount of Burley and Perique that gives a smooth finish. Just enough spice with a soft sweetness in the background, leaving a wonderful aftertaste. This most likely will age very well. Repeat buy for me

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Flake Aromatic
Excellent
Stout and sweet. Better than the non- scented, buying again

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Coniston Cut Plug
Very good
I don't detect the typical Lakeland essence in this one, might just be the batch I got. It's a very enjoyable and stout blend with a nice floral sweetness

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Flake Aromatic
Brown flake cigar
This tastes more like a fine medium bodied cigar, notes of chocolate and earthy florals. I didn't detect that much Lakeland, more of a robust sweetness. buying more

Cascadia - Vertical Limit 1.76oz
It's good.
Strong Burley forward smoke, has a nice sweetness in background with some tanginess. Noting earth shattering here. The plug is a nice little brick, a little moist and somewhat difficult to slice, the pressed flakes come apart. Next time a little drying will be required, had multiple re-lights until half way through. Good tobacco, not sure if it's a repeat buy

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Whisky Twist
Yeah baby!
Strong and sweet. This is like a sweet brown twist, no Lakeland detected just a nice tobacco with a kick. Buying more

Rattray's - Stirling Flake 50g
Great stout blend
The flakes are little hard to rub out. This is an excellent blend with ample nicotine kick. One of my favorites.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Irish X
Excellent!!
Arrived somewhat moist but smokeable out of the bag. Requires a like drying time. It’s pure pleasure doing this, the taste is earthy and rich and smells pure. Next time I’m as much as I can. Number 1 on my Virginia list.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Black Irish X
Who’s burning plastic?
Nothing near as good as the brown. Smells like burning plastic and at first tastes like sh&t. Like some G&H blends you need to take some time to connect with the blend, I experienced this with a Lakeland blend and at first hated it, and then found I loved. This is not entirely the case with this but it’s pretty good and has a lot of depth and nicotine punch. It’s not as good as the brown and sprinkle some red Virginia in there and it’s not bad.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Twist
Smoky goodness
I don’t detect any Lakeland or soapy taste in this. Needs drying time if at least 6 hours. Smokey and subtle sweetness a very natural flavor god strong buying more

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Plug
Excellent
This is a beautiful plug and smells amazing. I have to let it dry for about 12 hours to be smokable at an enjoyable level. Tastes really good with a nice nicotine kick. Buying more

Mac Baren - HH Pure Virginia 3.5oz
Best Virginia yet.
Smells beautiful in the tin with a unique presentation. Arrived with over a year of age on it - which is nice. Smokes like a dream, subtle sweetness and spice. Earthy natural flavor of pure Virginia. A truly great smoke. Buying more.

Amphora - Burley 1.75oz
Decent blend
A decent blend, perhaps the best bang for the buck. Add a touch of Perique and you’ll have a nice Bur/per bit on its own is a great blend

Drew Estate - Undercrown Maduro Coronets (10 Pack)
Great little smoke
I smoke the Robusto Undercrown and these just as tasty much better than his Dark Fired Cured line. I don’t think they are a 4 star strength but are good enough to satisfy. Buying again

Cornell & Diehl - Poplar Camp
Excellent
This is to me is like a lighter version of Exclusive with a more pronounced sweetness and less Perique - still it’s gotta good nicotine hit. A really nice smoke. Buying more

Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz
Excellent Burley
Noticeable reds right off the bat just enough to linger in the background, subtle sweetness. I’d say the Perique is about 30% as the retrohale is there but not bad, good!! Burley in this that really provides a nice nicotine hit. Repeat buy for me.

Sutliff - Cringle Flake 2022 1.5oz
Not bad
This is not bad, I sprinkle a little red Virginia with every bowl and it makes a huge difference with enhancing the Perique and overall flavor of a decent Va/per. I don’t really think the aged ingredients make any impact on this blend. The flakes are thick and rub out pretty good. It’s my opinion that without adding the reds it would not be as good on its own.

G. L. Pease - Bankside 2oz
Pleasant blend
This is a good morning smoke or reading. Nothing earth shattering taste is pleasant not a repeat buy. Gotta try any new GL blend.

Cornell & Diehl - Super Balkan 2oz
It’s okay
There’s no way this is a full strength blend. I all components are there but nothing special pops out for me on this blend to make a repeat buy. I found it slightly oriental forward and bitter at times.

Cornell & Diehl - Bright Virginia Ribbon
Sweet hay
At first I got strong hay and grass, then it opened up and became sweet hay and grass, had a nice spice to and of course will dry your mouth out a bit. I like it. Buying more

Amphora - Kentucky Blend 1.75oz
Delicious DFK
This is really good DKF and smoke it a lot. Beautiful broken flakes with a nice smell in the pouch. I never paid much attention to pouch types before, but I’m now. A new favorite, buying more.

Rattray's - Old Gowrie 100g
Excellent
I love this one a very enjoyable smoke - beautiful broken flake. On the retrohale i get a spicy taste that reminds me of Christmas. It has a deep robust taste that I love. A repeat buy for me.

Rattray's - Black Mallory 100g
Nice English, good flavor
A good English blend slightly Oriental forward not too much Latakia but noticeable. The strength rating is about medium.

Rattray's - Hal O' The Wynd 100g
Excellent!
I waited a long time for this to come back in stock and it was worth it. I love Ava/pers and this is exceptional, not sure about the strength rating but it’s up there. Very tasty and delicious smoke

Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 2012 Anniversary Blend 1.75oz
Excellent
Beautiful and sweet. I can’t detect pear exactly but there’s a noticeable hint of something going on. I love this. Buying more

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Kendal Flake
Very good
I think it's the best in the line. A fine sweet and strong blend. I don't detect a lot of Lakeland in this batch but have in other orders, in any case I love the blend either way.

Cornell & Diehl - Red Virginia Ribbon
Nice reds
Tried out of the bag and smoked very good. Blended it with Perique and was outstanding. Buying more

Sutliff - TS-12 Dark Fire Cured
I like it
Smells good, tastes good and smokes great. Repeat buy

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Flake Unscented
Outstanding
Pure smoke with no topping detected. Strong!! Just the way I like it. Buying more

Cornell & Diehl - Speakeasy Navy Blend 2oz
Excellent smoke
Very spicy with hints of fermented fruit, a beautiful aroma and tin note. Another hit for me from C&D I’ll be ordering again.

Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
Works great.
I didn’t think I’d like these. Needed something to cover a tiny hole I made from clinching and this worked great. Putting them on all my pipes

Solani - Aged Burley Flake - 656 50g
Excellent!
If you’re curious about this blend and love burley you won’t be disappointed. I put on the same level as Wessex burley slice and if you like that you’ll like this too. Buying more

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Bird's Eye Vintage Cut
A great pure smoke
This is a pure smoke - tastes good and burns well with good nicotine hit.

Humidors & Travel Cases - Craftsman's Bench Chocolate Cigar Case 60 Ring Churchill
Simple yet nice
This is a good study case. It will except three Gordo size cigars and four Belicoso easily. Nothing fancy, good quality and smooth finish. A good buy for the price,

Sillem's - Commodore Flake 50g
Magnificent
Beautiful tin note aromatic like, smells of fermented fruit, moist dark flakes. This smokes very well Latakia plays a good role as does the burley without one playing center stage. A good amount of nicotine, Leaves a nice sweet aftertaste. Buying more.

Sampler Packs - Perdomo Maduro (4 Pack)
These are okay
The lot 23 label was so tight it pinched the wrapper causing the it to crack creating uneven burn and unraveling - tossed it. The 10 anniversary was decent I had higher expectations for a maduro. Four sticks at 28 bucks ain’t bad but not a repeat buy for me

Wessex - Burley Slice 50g
Excellent smoke
Flavor finally came out when I packed a half pipe full. Beautiful smoke, great burley taste with a good nicotine kick. Leaves a nice aftertaste, buying again.

McConnell - Scottish Cake 50g
Not as good as the flake
I've smoked and loved the flake version of this, this rubbed version is good but not as good as the flake.

Cornell & Diehl - Kelly's Coin 2oz
Good morning smoke
Pleasantly surprised by this one, I’ve been trying to find a good first thing in the morning smoke to replace EMP, and think this is it. It’s a nice strong mellow tasting smoke with a kick. The cavendish really smooths it out with that nice slightly sweet tea taste. Buying again.

Tabac De La Semois - La Brumeuse 3.5oz
I love it!
This one took me several pipes and techniques to figure it out. Searching for the flavor that others here have described and I finally found it. This is strong stuff and despite being very very dry I had to do several re-lights due to the strength and not smoking too hard. It’s a fine smoke with earthy, nutty toasty flavor found in burley. I think it’s a re-order for me.

Cornell & Diehl - Burley Flake #2 2oz
Good burley smoke
This is a good example of a burley DFK blend. I’ve ordered this again. It smokes really nice with a light sweetness and a good nicotine kick.

Cornell & Diehl - Billy Budd Blonde
Below Average
Very disappointed with this one. Arrived dry as hay, all components work together to make a dull and harsh smoke

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
It’s good
Tried a 1oz sample then bought 4oz and can’t seem to find what I liked about the first one. It’s a good blend. Purchased again

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - B. J. Long Bristle Tapered Pipe Cleaners (80 pack)
Great cleaners
Love these buy a couple of packs with every order

Hearth & Home - El Niño 1.75oz
Pleasant Light English
Too many components to really nail down the forward. It smokes well, has a good aroma and taste. Nothing earth-shattering but a good English

Cornell & Diehl - Yorktown 2oz
It’s alright
This smokes good, has a subtle sweetness and good spicy taste. A pleasant smoke

Cornell & Diehl - Pegasus 2oz
Wow!
This is awesome!

Cornell & Diehl - Night Train 2oz
Worthy repeat buy
Good toasty Burley with a sweet background, good amount of spice from the Perique - overall a repeat buy for me

Hearth & Home - Cerberus 1.75oz
Yummy
The Perique really gives this is a nice spicy kick. Definitely Latakia forward. It has that good smokey, earthy taste - I smoke it slow and hard to draw out the flavors, easy retrohale and is encouraged. It’s pretty damn good. Buying more

Hearth & Home - First Snow 1.75oz
Excellent!!
Perfect Burley blend - sweet, nutty, earthy. Taste is so enjoyable with a beautiful aroma. Love the retrohale on this one, A very enjoyable smoke - definitely buying more

Robert Lewis - Tree Mixture 50g
Perhaps the best English.
An excellent blend with good taste and the tin note is phenomenal. Ages very well. A repeat buy for me.

G. L. Pease - Penny Farthing 2oz
Pretty good
A good smoke, I might buy again. Good morning to all day smoke. Very nice dark fired Kentucky flavor

Hearth & Home - Knotty Pine 1.75oz
Superb
This is an excellent English smoke. All the components are blended perfectly. Has that Smokey taste without being overpowering like other Balkan type blends. The room note is wonderful and leaves a nice subtle Latakia after taste. Good with coffee or scotch.

Cornell & Diehl - Habana Daydream
Tasty cigar very good
This smokes well nice spice and a hint of cinnamon - might be a good everyday smoke.

Cornell & Diehl - Plantation Evening
Not for me
The Chelsea Morning comparison says it all

Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East
Over-hyped
It's a nice smoke but nothing special -way better selections out there with more depth, I found this to have a bitter finish

Hearth & Home - Viprati 1.75oz
Excellent Va/per
Really good enjoyable Va/per gets spicy with a deep rich and sweet Virginia.Repeat buy for me,

Mac Baren - HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
Excellent
This, like the ODF is an excellent blend, it’s like Rustica but not as good. Once you’ve smoked Rustica it’s a very close tie. This has a slight sweetness to it and heart palpitating nicotine level as the other mentioned.

Cobblestone - Brick Burley Plug 1.75oz
Very Good Burley
It is a nice Burley forward smoke, the Virginia adds a nice subtle sweetness in the background. Not easy to keep lit, it’s a nice dense cake and arrives with a low moisture level - it's not dry. It has that nice earthy tones of leather and nutty flavor I find in Burley. I enjoy this one.

Cornell & Diehl - Five O'Clock Shadow 2oz
Damn good stuff
It’s pretty good

Cornell & Diehl - Burley Flake #1 2oz
Excellent burley
I smoke a lot of burley’s and Va/per’s and this is a perfect combination. The Perique is about 35% and gives this blend that little kick of rich spice. The Virginia adds a perfect amount of sweetness, with the burley’s toasty nutty flavor it’s a repeat buy for me.

Larsen - Signature Vintage Mixture 100g
Gorgeous
All the positive reviews are dead on with this one. A beautiful smoke, even better than Exotic Passion

CAO - Eileen's Dream 50g
It’s okay
I had higher expectations for this the aroma is very good but it has a slight bitter finish

Mac Baren - HH Rustica Flake 3.5oz
Excellent
It’s like the Burley Flake without the Dark Fired Kentucky to smooth it out. Strong smoke gives me that lump in my throat feeling of a good nicotine level that comes with strong Burley. Nutty, earthy sweetness, leathery. Tin note is BBQ with vinegar really unique. Going to be buying a lot more

Cobblestone - Indulge Walnut Maple Pie 1.5oz
Delicious
I don’t smoke a lot of aromatics but this one intrigued me by the description and reviews. I like the Cobblestone English Brick Plug so I bought this. It’s a wonderful maple pie. Lovely nutty and maple flavor and aroma. A very enjoyable smoke

War Horse - Green 1.75oz
Tasty and Strong
A great aromatic with a kick. Tastes of coconut and licorice mixed with floral notes. A repeat buy for me.

Sillem's - European Blend: London 50g
Very good
This is like a light version of Early Morning Pipe except the finish is way better. A nice complex and smoky blend - best smoked in the evening. Buying more

G. L. Pease - Robusto 2oz
Had higher expectations
I found this to be a nice blend. However not as good as Purple Cow or Mad Fiddler Flake. I think the Latakia and Orientals overpower the Cigar.

Mac Baren - HH Burley Flake 3.5oz
Excellent
Simply excellent

Cobblestone - Brick English Plug 1.75oz
Excellent!!
It’s so good. All the components are perfectly blended here. It’s a nice rich yet mello smoke, best in the morning or evening. It’s smoky, nutty, spicy with a beautiful aroma and tin note, a nice dense cake with perfect moisture level. Leaves a nice aftertaste. Buying more.

Cornell & Diehl - Interlude 2oz
Excellent Red Virginia
From the first puff I was hooked. An exceptional red Virginia, beautiful subtle sweetness with a touch of honey buying more

Stands & Pouches - Brigham 1 Pipe Bag Combo Pouch Vintage
Nice but a little small
Nice soft smooth leather pouch for a single pipe. I could just fit my Savinelli: Arcobaleno Smooth (111 KS) over the zipper.

Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night
Very tasty
I smoked this one pretty fast and will be buying more.

G. L. Pease - Samarra 2oz
Excellent Oriental blend, but
This is excellent if you like Oriental forward blends, personality I don’t. The room note is wonderful and tastes is good but has that bitter sweetness that I’m not fond of.

Cornell & Diehl - Exclusive
Wow! Excellent
I love the heavy Perique and nicotine hit from this - it is strong stuff. I smoke this everyday and is by far my favorite Va/per. A Nice sweetness and smells great. Satisfying on all levels - buying more

Ashton - Gold Rush 50g
Excellent
This is fabulous Virginia, lot’s of natural sweetness and spice you get from quality, Surprisingly it doesn’t get hot but does burn fast, which is fine for those quick smoke breaks. I’ll be buying more

Sillem's - Councilor 1695 50g
Nice light Va/per
It’s actually very nice and enjoyable smoke the Perique level is about 35% - but the Virginia’s shine bright. Sweet and lightly spicy. Quality tobacco for sure, a winner if you like lighter Perique. Buying again

Savinelli - Doblone d'Oro 100g
Beautiful smoke
This tastes great and smokes more like a traditional Va/per with a nice pepper on the tongue. The Dark Fired Kentucky really shines giving it a mellowness while the Virginia’s provides a nice subtle sweetness. Overall a truly good smoke. Buying more

Rattray's - Accountant's Mixture 50g
Good all day and morning smoke
This is actually a nice pleasant mellow smoke. Components are not overbearing and really quite good for a morning smoke. It has slight sweet and nutty flavor and beautiful room note

Peterson - Nightcap 50g
Not for me
I found it not living up to its hype - it’s not bad.

McConnell - Scottish Flake 50g
Excellent Va/per
Nice smoke, delicious reds with good dose of Perique. I’ll be buying more

Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Ponies (10 Pack)
Nice little smoke
Pretty good, has some kick to it, they taste really smooth and smell nice. I like'em

Solani - White and Black - 763 50g
Nice pleasant smoke
This needs to be dried out for a bit, it’s a nice slightly sweet.

Rattray's - Marlin Flake 100g
Wow!!!
Title says it all. So far my favorite Va/Per. Great nicotine hit and superb quality and flavor. The flake is beautiful both in aroma and appearance. Tastes like hot pepper with fermented raisins, a gourmet Va/per. Will be buying a lot more

Hearth & Home - Black House 1.75oz
Beautiful smoke.
Right out of the gate, wonderful. Slightly oriental forward and delicious. An excellent English/Balkan a great smoke. I bought more

Cornell & Diehl - Purple Cow 2oz
Fabulous - My favorite cigar
Pack this with a medium light packing and smoke a little slower and the flavors really come out great. I smoke this daily on my work breaks and I get good nicotine satisfaction. It has a really nice deep sweetness and you can really pick up the Maduro leaf. I buy a lot of this.

Solani - Virginia Flake - 633 100g
Spectacular
Hands down one of the finest Virginia leaf. To me it’s very light on Perique but the taste and aroma alone is enough to buy and cellar

Cornell & Diehl - Oak Alley 2oz
Really good!
At first I wasn’t impressed but as I continued it opened up nice. Good dose of Perique and the Virginia’s are beautiful, has a fermented fruitiness about it with a really nice kick of nicotine. This came as a dense plug

Cornell & Diehl - Consolation 2oz
It’s good
A very well balanced blend. Good all day smoke. Latakia and Oriental forward but not overpowering

G. L. Pease - Key Largo 2oz
Really nice cigar blend
I like this one. Not a lot of cigar but you can taste it. It’s a slow smoke and it will get hot if you hit it hard.

G. L. Pease - Sixpence 8oz
Beyond expectations
Right away I knew this was good. A beautiful Va/per right up there with Fillmore but with a more pronounced sweetness and lot’s of pepper. Next time I’m buying a big tin.

McConnell - Black Flake 50g
Excellent Va/per
Beautiful packaging and presentation. It’s a beautiful dark brown flake with a Pungent tin note. I’d put the Perique level at 30% to Virginia, which has a nice subtle sweetness. It smokes really well, need to take your time - flavor will open up nicely half way through. I’ll be buying more

Bengal Slices - Bengal Slices 1.75oz
Excellent
This is a sweeter version of the white label with an interesting top note. Much like the White, and can’t decide if I like it better, would be inclined to say they’re about even. Will be adding to my rotation and buying more.

Peterson - Old Dublin 50g
Beautiful smoke
Pleasant smoke about even on components blows a nice white smoke. A great after dinner or evening smoke. Really, really nice blend will be buying again.

Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning Flake 2oz
Great Va/per
Nice smoke really tasty a nice mello sweetness a little light on the Perique but will but a larger tub next time

Warped - The Haunting 2oz
It’s very nice
It smokes very well and tastes great. Good nicotine satisfaction.

Warped - Cloud Hopper 2oz
Really nice blend.
I smoke a few in this line and this is right up there with Until The End. Has a satisfying nicotine hit to say the least, with a nice subtle soft sweetness going on.
