Savinelli - Doblone d'Oro 100g
Rich & Complex !
Not sure why I waited so long to try this blend. I have a number of Savinelli pipes that I truly love. This is only the 2d tobacco of theirs that I have tried... WOW ! Rich, complex, tasty with many flavor nuances. A great tobacco I recommend to any experienced pipe smoker. This one jumped right into my rotation !!
Hearth & Home - Cerberus 1.75oz
Unexpected Find !
Advertised as the Brand's most Latakia forward blend, I wasn't expecting what I found. This is a mild to medium blend loaded with flavor ! Latakia, Virginia, Turkish, dark fired My and Periique all contribute to a plethora of flavors... Smoke slow.. and enjoy !
Ashton - Artisan's Blend 50g
Rich and Smooth !
Artisan's Blend is a pleasingly rich and flavorful smoke with a light spiciness. Plenty of flavor nuances throughout. You will be hard pressed to find an English blend as balanced and flavorful. An anytime smoke for me !
Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
Full Body English
Pirate Lake is a full body English bend. Heavy on the Latakia. A rich, smoky and creamy experience. Not for beginners ! A Vitamin N bomb stronger than Nightcap. I found it to be an excellent blend. Similar to Ten Russians , Nightcap, and even Star of the East.
G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
No Lat Bomb - just Flavor !
If you're looking for a strong Latakia blend, try Star of the East Flake, or Pirate Lake. Quiet Nights is a complex and flavorful blend that amazes me every time I load up a bowl. Smoke it slow to be rewarded by a plethora of flavors. Superb Blend !
G. L. Pease - Navigator 2oz
A Nice Change
Navigator has less rum note than most Navy blends. The addition of fire cured Kentucky is very welcoming. Smoke it slowly to enjoy all the subtle nuances. Very nice blend from GLP
