Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Legend Tamper Redwood
A step up!
I’ve always had one of those Czech pipe tools, and they serve their purpose, but this one steps it up in style. The wood handle gives it a classy yet rustic look that doesn’t seem like you bought it at the corner store in your old neighborhood. I also love the air holes in the tamper, your bowl can stay lit while you maintain it. Other than that it has all your standard tools, dawdle pic, and that mini shovel looking scoop part (whatever it’s called lol), it’s functional and looks great!
Captain Black - Royal 1.5oz
Not too bad, not the greatest either.
It was ok on flavor, a bit more tongue bite than others. Wouldn’t be upset if I traveled somewhere and this was all I could find.
Davidoff - Royalty 50g
First time across the pond!
This is my first experience with an English mixture, I find that it smells horrible when you open the tin, not sure if it’s the Oriental or the Latakia, but it stinks. I tried the tobacco anyway, and found that the smoke tastes and smells nothing like the tobacco does before you put a match to it. All in all it was a decent smoke, I smoke it when I’m in the mood for something different.
Peterson - Flake 50g
Smoking’s a journey, not a destination...
This was the first step on my journey from aromatics, to unobscured, natural tobacco flavor, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was an easy bright, citrusy, grassy, hint of corn taste to it. The room note isn’t bad, but not something you get to smoke in your house unless your wife owes you something, but it’s not a lingering stink either. I definitely plan to smoke more of it and see how it ages.
Peter Stokkebye - PS6 Sweet Vanilla
Opinions are like @$$h0/3$, everyone’s got one!
I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but I love it! Seems to be the most natural tasting and smelling of the vanilla aromatics out there. Just my opinion, and you may think it stinks!
Lane Limited - 1-Q
My First Love!
This was one of the first tobaccos I bought for my self, mainly because all the reviews say it’s the best. Well, they say it’s the best for a reason! Creamy, satisfying, great room note, perfect for smoking all day.
Lane Limited - LL-7
Aaah that’s the stuff!
Sat out on a balcony in the woods in Vermont, and smoked looking at the rustic scenery, and the toasted marshmallow and chocolate notes enhanced the environment, loved it! Reminded me of a cup of hot chocolate.
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
This is my first experience with a perique blend, and it was a pleasant surprise. Very mellow smoke, noticed a slight spiced prune taste peaking through the Virginia and bit of cavendish. Room note wasn’t terrible either. Over all I’m looking forward to smoking it again.
Pipe Accessories - Leather Pipe Stand
Just a place to rest my head...I mean pipe!
Perfect for what I wanted it for, nothing fancy, just needed a place to rest my pipe when I had to go pee, real talk!
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
An aromatic enigma!
Very moist tobacco, yet some how smoked very cool and had no bite. Maybe it’s just oily? I don’t know, but it stayed cool, tasted great, smelled great, and stayed lit. What else can you ask for?
Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1982 Centennial Blend 1.4oz
Good quality tobacco, smooth smoke, but not my cup of tea as far as flavor. No fault of the maker.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - B. J. Long Churchwarden Pipe Cleaners (32 pack)
Like a sponge!
Perfect for soaking up all that liquid that causes the gurgle mid smoke.
Peterson - 3 P's - Peterson's Perfect Plug 50g
As close to perfect as Virginia can get!
It’s a great flavorful smoke, compared to the Peterson Virginia Flake, it’s less citrus and grass and a little more to the floral dried fruit and slightly chocolate side. I’m looking forward to trying it after it’s aged a bit. Also very much enjoy the ritualistic preparation, pouring some bourbon, cutting the plug thin, and breaking it up to a shag before packing a bowl... nothing finer!
Old German Clay - Markus Fohr Flowing Fountain Black
Not too shabby!
Enjoyed the pipe, clean cool smoke, but like all clay pipes, very delicate, and the bowl gets hot, so there’s no comfortable place to hold it.
