Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - DVC
DVC disappointed
There wasn't anything to like about this tobbaco for me & I bought a half pound of it what a waste of money.

Samuel Gawith - Chocolate Flake 50g
Premium Tobbaco
Just opened a tin & loaded up a bowl it's moist and needs some dry time but I cut up a couple strips toasted it up in an old Stanwell Canadian pipe and I must say I love this tobbaco it is smooth dark and easy to smoke & no bite.

Mac Baren - Vanilla Cream 3.5oz
Nope
A lot of my Mac Baren reviews are from tins aged over two years now but this I couldn't smoke it.

Mac Baren - Original Choice 3.5oz
Nope
I thought it would be better than it was. Not for me for what it's worth.

Mac Baren - Cherry Ambrosia 3.5oz
Nope
I tried to like cherry blends.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - American Delite 50g
Nope
Has a very heavy perfume taste and aroma. I couldn't smoke it.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Best Brown #2 Flake 50g
The king of the hill
This is the king of G&H tobbaco line up for me! After aging for over two years now I wish I had bought a pound of it. It's sweet & sour burns great has a great tobbaco core! I will get more in the future.

Mac Baren - Burley: London Blend 3.5oz
2021 Edition
I bought two tins of the 2021 release, that's the way I buy all tins until I'm sure I like it. So in February 2021 I got the two tins, I couldn't smoke it must be the heavy topping they put on it, the other tin I don't know what to do with and a bunch of other regular Mac Baren tins that I don't like.

La Gloria Cubana - Serie R #4 Maduro
Great Cigar
It seems longer ago than 1999 when these came out I remember Rush Limbaugh talking about them so of course I had to go get a box. Very complex and worth a try!

Arturo Fuente - Curly Head Deluxe Maduro
Premium loose filler
Loose cut filler from leftover premium leaf cigars. I bought a box about 25 years ago and was blown away with them went back to the tobbaco shop and bought the last four boxes. Not sure how they are now.

La Gloria Cubana - Churchill Maduro
Top Shelf
I remember when these first came out don't be fooled by the dark wrapper these are sweet & loaded with complex flavors! It's the Mexican tobbaco that's key!

La Gloria Cubana - Serie R #6 Maduro
Good smoke
I've smoked many boxes of these over the years.The Connecticut Broad leaf wrapper is so sweet it is a must try. I find it to be smooth and complex and loaded with flavor too.

Cohiba - Black Robusto Crystal Tube
Greatness
I don't want to review every cigar I've smoked in the last 40 years just the ones like this one. It has many great qualities that a good cigar should have and it's loaded with flavors like coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, earth & so much more a must try.

Ashton - Aged Maduro #50
And God said let there be Ashton
This my friends is one of the best Cigars on earth smoked these for years. I've smoked Cigars for over 40 years now and these are about as good as it gets, you get coffee, chocolate, earth, nuts and so much more and burns perfectly a must try don't be fooled by the dark wrapper it tastes sweet.

Arturo Fuente - Spanish Lonsdales Maduro
My blends
I smoked these for decades and still love them. I have smoked just about every Arturo Fuente cigar made in the last 40 years.

Arturo Fuente - Rothschilds Maduro
Good stuff
I've smoked all these blends and all are very good, it's the wrapper!

Arturo Fuente - Hemingway Signature
Cameroon Wrapper
The wrapper is king.

Arturo Fuente - Hemingway Best Seller
Amazing
This is a classic!

Arturo Fuente - Flor Fina 8-5-8 Maduro
Love these
Smoked these for decades I think I'll go smoke one now. I have many Cigars in my humidor some that have been in there 10 years or more. They'll stay fresh forever if you keep them at the correct humidity and temperature @ 70/70 any higher they'll start to mold. But still can smoke them!

Arturo Fuente - Exquisitos Maduro
Perfect
Perfect for a quick smoke loaded with flavor.

Arturo Fuente - Double Chateau Fuente Maduro
Must try
Smoked these for years and all Arturo Fuente cigars are made with long leaf tobbaco except curly heads etc. which is loose filler from leftover tobbaco from their premium cigars. The cedar wrap adds a nice flavor to them also.

Arturo Fuente - Don Carlos Double Robusto
High Quality
Really good cigar!

Arturo Fuente - Curly Head Deluxe Maduro
Sweet
Smoked these for years, did you know these are made with leftover tobbaco from the ultra premium Cigars what a great cigar for the price.

Arturo Fuente - Brevas Royal Maduro
Tasty
Good value great cigar

St. Bruno - Flake 1.75oz
Good quality smoke
I tried it when I first received it and it was good. I put it in a jar for two years just opened it today and wow what a difference! Very rich sweet and sour but retains a good tobbaco core. Will order more.

Solani - White and Black - 763 50g
Real nice and smooth
This is very good, all Solani tobbaco is good. I use an old Dunhill 4103 shell briar pipe for my English tobbaco and has worked very well for me.

Solani - Virginia Flake - 633 50g
This is as good as it gets
I love it! Always sells out fast so when you see it better get some if you like Vaper. Smokes so good in my trusty Ole' Dunhill 4109...

Solani - Virginia Flake - 633 100g
Love it
I Bought all I could get which isn't much three small tins & three large tins. I Jared the 100g tins because they're not vacuumed sealed & that's ok because I'm always smoking it anyway.

Solani - Aged Burley Flake - 656 50g
The real deal
Get some you'll love it on it's own but I make my own blends with it, I'll add some vaper & cavendish. I love Burley tobbaco and this is so good but I could only get two tins before it sold out again. I was able to find three more tins elsewhere to put in my big box of tins to age.

Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 1.75oz
Enter The Dark Side
It's good tobbaco. I've smoked pipe tobbaco for over 25 years and cigars for over 40 but never tasted anything like this In my Tom Eltang Billiard pipe, It has a dark woody taste & BBQ smell to it. See Smoking Pipes Mac Baren's YouTube video.

Mac Baren - Club Blend 3.5oz
Sweet
It is a good blend it has a sweet flavor to it but doesn't burn very good at first but once you get it going its very satisfying.

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 3.5oz
My favorite
Started with tins now I buy it buy the pound!

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular 16oz
My morning smoke
It's perfect in my Dunhill 4103 Tanshell

Mac Baren - 7 Seas Black 3.5oz
Good stuff
I mix it with vaper and burley but on its own it's smooth and sweet. Will order by the pound next time!

Former - Private Flake 50g
Very different & good
This is a good blend I like the extract topping's. I liked it so much I bought a pound of it two tin's at a time. I smoke it in my beautiful Former Pipe!

Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1931 Flake 1.4oz
Good quality
It has a natural tobbaco flavor. Kinda boring so mixed it with other stuff it's very good tobbaco though!

Davidoff - English Mixture 50g
High Quality Tobbaco
I wasn't into English tobbaco that much until I tried this. It has a lot going for it finished my first tin the other is in my box of unopened tins over two years old now. I'm sure I'll order more.

Captain Black - Original 1.5oz
In the beginning
There was Captain Black...

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Smooth
This blend is smooth no bite at all no matter how hard you smoke it, Its just a one trick pony though. If your into English blends this has a very good taste and aroma and very mild.
