Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Bird's Eye Vintage Cut
A great pure smoke
This is not for beginners as it packs a good amount of nicotine. This blender is well known for its purity and that’s what you get. There’s not a lot sweetness in this blend, however experienced smokers with DFK’s can enjoy the purity of this blend. Buying more
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
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.
Perdomo - 4 Pack Humidified Bag Maduro
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
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 mello tasting smoke with a kick. The cavendish really smooths it out with that nice slightly sweet tea taste.
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
Very disappointed with this one. Arrived dry as hay, all components work together to make a dull and harsh smoke
Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
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)
Love these buy a couple of packs with every order
Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - B. J. Long Regular Pipe Cleaners (100 pack)
Great for the price.
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
This smokes good, has a subtle sweetness and good spicy taste. A pleasant smoke
Cornell & Diehl - Pegasus 2oz
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
All the positive reviews are dead on with this one. A beautiful smoke, even better than Exotic Passion
CAO - Eileen's Dream 50g
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
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
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
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
Cobblestone - Brick English Plug 1.75oz
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, Thought about returning it, but decided to keep to see if it breaks in
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night
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
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
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
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
Nice smoke, delicious reds with good dose of Perique. I’ll be buying more
Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Ponies
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
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
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
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! Not a cake
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
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
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
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
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
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

Hearth & Home - Magnum Opus 1.75oz
Lives up to the name and hype
I love it.
Hearth & Home - WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Good English Balkan
A very nice smoke, oriental forward but not overwhelming, a smooth sweetness from the Virginia’s and despite my preference for Latakia blends more upfront I really like the smoke - it’s great for early morning or late evenings and cold winter days especially.
F & K - Sterling Balkan
Very nice Balkan
This is a dialed down Lancer Slices, yet very smooth and creamy. I love it. Another winner from F&K
Cornell & Diehl - Mad Fiddler Flake 2oz
A great cigar blend
A really unique smoke with a good dose of nicotine. Flavors of sweetness like fruit, bread and plum mixed with floral notes.
G. L. Pease - Maltese Falcon 2oz
In the trash
Way over hyped. Nothing distinctive or special about this at all. I tried it in three different pipes, no taste of anything
G. L. Pease - Spark Plug 2oz
At first I wasn’t happy with the presentation from what I’ve seen the plug is supposed to have bright Virginia’s in it and mine had none, just a brown brownie. The smoke is really good though and took a little while to get going, when it did I was very pleased this smokes great all the way to the end
G. L. Pease - JackKnife Plug 2oz
It’s a great DFK
It’s good it’s strong. Has a nice natural sweetness and delivers a good nicotine hit. Very satisfying and I will be buying the bigger tin next time.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - Pipemaster Clean and Cure 2oz
Easy to use, affordable and works good
Drucquer & Sons - Levant Mixture 100g
This is a oriental forward blend I bought this based on all the positive reviews both here and YouTube. It delivers nothing for me. I smoke mostly English/Balkan and this is just mediocre.
G. L. Pease - Gaslight 2oz
My favorite tobacco so far. Incredible on all levels. All the other reviews say it all. What flavor and aroma. Stocking up.
Hearth & Home - Fusilier's Ration 1.75oz
This is a unique blend that delivers allot of satisfaction on all levels. It has a very nice taste and aroma. One of my favorites and will be buying again
Mac Baren - HH Pure Virginia 1.75oz
Wonderful smoke, nice and sweet. Going into my favorite’s. This is a nice and pure Virginia
Cornell & Diehl - Opening Night 2oz
Very Good Virginia
Nice all day smoke. There’s a mild sweetness and overall nice taste. It took me a few bowls to find the flavors in this one. Buying again.
Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake 1.75oz
One the best Latakias I’ve smoked yet. To me it tastes clean and pure, if that makes sense. It’s incredibly sweet. An instant favorite, I’m gonna stock up on this one
Peter Stokkebye - PS402 Luxury Twist Flake
Tin note is wonderful. It smokes good and has a satisfying nicotine hit. There’s something going on that I can’t describe with respect to taste, but I like it. Tastes like a light smokey sweetness. It’s a good all day smoke for sure
Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Spectacular my #1
It’s a beautiful Balkan - right to my favorites and we be ordering again. Smells and tastes wonderful - This is my favorite across all blend types
Bengal Slices - Bengal Slices White 1.75oz
I think the combination’s of the Latakia and Orientalists are perfectly woven to create a beautiful smoke like a stronger Quite Nights. This has become my second favorite blend, I love it. I have purchased more, a lot more.
Sutliff - 507-S Stoved Virginia
Don’t waste your money
Nothing but smoke. I gave this a few more bowls and absolutely nothing. In the trash.
Newminster - No.403 Superior Round Slices
Title says it all. Glad I only purchased a 1oz bag. I smoke a lot of dark fired Kentucky and this is very ordinary. In the trash
G. L. Pease - Union Square 2oz
If you watch the YouTube video on how they make this, you’ll have a new appreciation for it Love the natural sweetness a clean and fulfilling smoke. Right to my favorites. Smoke it slow it packs a punch
Warped - Until the End 2oz
I’'ll be ordering this again soon as I've already smoked half the tin within the first week.. This was good right away. The cigar leaf really compliments everything else. The aroma is uniquely sweet the flavors are robust from the cigar. This one will be in my rotation
Warped - Kings Stride 2oz
In the beginning I wasn’t sure until I got about halfway through the bowl and then it really opened up and the complexity of the blends really started to marry very well. A very good even mixture of all blends with a nice subtle sweetness way in the background. The first complex blend I smoked it really lived up to the hype it’s very nice and relaxing.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
Glad I only purchased 1oz bag. I found this to be quite flat and mildly flavorful. I was expecting something more Latakia forward from reviews both here and online, but found mostly Virginia and very little Latakia - a little bummed out
Warped - The Red Hunt 2oz
Incredible tin note, has a sweet smell. Took me a little while to get it going but half way in it became quite nice and a background of sweetness coupled with spice.
Cornell & Diehl - Green River Vanilla 2oz
It’s a nice vanilla nothing special
Sutliff - Barbados Plantation 1.5oz
So far the best rum flavored yet. Smoke it slow as your bowl will get hot from you loving the taste
