Borkum Riff - Black Cavendish 1.5oz
Fantastic
Fantastic- great!!! Low nicotine

Captain Black - Original 7oz
Smells great taste great
To me? All captain black smell fantastic and taste great but offer little in the way of nicotine so you must smoke a lot of it

Rattray's - Marlin Flake 100g
I find it strong
I find it strong, but I like everything that rattrays offers and stock up when I can

Half and Half - Half and Half 7oz
An old standby
I like it. It’s old school mild pleasant.

Cornell & Diehl - After Hours Flake 2oz
C&D
As advertised and highest quality from CD

Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany 2oz
Epiphany
My first review was harsh. I only smoke VA old belt. After a while . And a whole can smoked. This is a fine introduction into Latakia and whatever else is in this.

Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany 2oz
Oh- uuuuugh.
I do not like Latakia, and I am from the group that believes Latakia is for those who have burned up every tastebud they ever had. I also believe Old Belt VA is the best of any. That being said… I wanted to try Einsteins favorite and what not. It’s confusing. Confusing would be a better name. The can reeks of Latakia, yet? Smoking it at first was sweet like a VA, orientals came and went with their unique incense quality, Latakia forward the end. However. I was high as a kite. I also noted- unlike Dunhill Nightcap, it did not take days to get the taste out of my mouth. So……. If you want something that is fairly unique, lots of nicotine, And not—bad really

A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Nice Enough
Everywhere I read it says this is the VA to have and what not. I prefer Orlik, I also prefer Dunhills Light VA over this, and even C&D briar fox. But this is certainly as good as all the rest.

Peterson - Flake 50g
As I only do VA
Since Golden Slices is political prisoner in global trade…. This is a very nice replacement although it strikes me as a VA with unknown floral notes, Golden Slices was VA with honeysuckle like notes. Both worth buying

Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
An occasional favorite
Very oriental, unique and like none other- as a VA only person. I don’t do it often. But it should be in every cabinet

Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
An occasional favorite
Very oriental, unique and like none other

Capstan - Flake Blue 1.75oz
As described
I don’t think the legendary hype is so unique. I thinks it is fine. But I like so many others better

Rattray's - Brown Clunee 100g
Tangy, lemon
Since dark star is not obtainable, this is lightly stoved with a somewhat similar tangy ness. To me it’s lemon like and I use it with tea.

Cornell & Diehl - Briar Fox 8oz
Number One
I tried everything, around the world and two I always went back too… Golden Slices and Briar Fox. Since Orlik is now a political prisoner- Briar Fox is my number one all time favorite.

G. L. Pease - Barbary Coast 2oz
Burley for sure
Walnuts, walnut shells... booze aroma is intense in a new tin, but doesn’t really overwhelm with flavor of the booze. Mostly a very nutty burley. Certainly an upgrade from say Prince Albert, if I smoke this too much it gets hard on the throat. But I always go back for it.

Mac Baren - Vanilla Flake 1.75oz
The only aromatic I like
I generally don’t like aromatics. It is a mild tobacco, aroma is amazing. Baked goods, cherries? Chocolate, camp fire? Vanilla? That’s what everyone tells me I smell like. It’s mild vanilla subtle tobacco that hasn’t burnt me yet.

Orlik - Golden Sliced 50g
I always go back
Originally... I thought this was just smoke. It took some time to appreciate. Very subtle, low aftertaste, honeysuckle and grass. The tin aroma is my favorite? Apricots. Very simple, very good. Always wind up going back to it.

Cornell & Diehl - Briar Fox 8oz
A regular
Very good, the cigarette people refer to seems to me more of an aftertaste really, nutty, sweet, lemony/zesty/ oranges through the nose- spicy ness builds. Good all day smoke.
