Captain Earle's - Reflections 2oz
Pleasant addition to the Captain Earle family
Nice smoke. Mellow English, sweetens down the bowl. Significant nic hit!

Drucquer & Sons - Loch Ness 100g
1st try in my new Joe Hinkle Jade Prince…wonderful! Sweet mild English with nice nic hit. Don’t expect to get anything done for a couple hours after smoking a bowl of this! I had to take a couple of brakes but looked forward to each relite.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
OMG!!! It’s true what you all are saying! This is a fantastic blend. An eye opener of magnificent flavor from the first draw to the last. Forgiving when my cadence changes; a mellow carpet of Latakia on my tongue and palate without bite or sour. Lit my first bowl in my Abe Herbaugh Bent Apple. I hope I never take this masterful Blend for granted. It’s now at the top of favorite list; not sure I can make it through my rotation of 50 blends before getting to it again, LOL. Thanks to C&D, all the reviewers, SmokingPipes, and Abe…I’ve been waiting for this!!!!

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Matte Black
Svelte yet weighty; a lovely piece! I can’t put it down… always finding it in my empty hand while I’m holding my Abe Herbaugh in the other!

Lighters - Kiribi Kabuto Smokingpipes Pipe Lighter Limited Edition 2018
Adequate but a clunky
Not as refined as I was hoping; but functional, just the same. I like my IM Corona Old Boy much better.

Ashton - Smooth Sailing 50g
Jonah somehow got in the tin. The only thing it does right is burn. Absolutely tasteless… as previous reviewers have said. I love Ashton‘s Artisans Blend and Rainy Day but this one is not up to par.

Ashton - Artisan's Blend 50g
This is a wonderful English! I enjoy smoking while I read, but with this blend I find myself putting the book down, closing my eyes, and getting lost in thought; surrounded by the nostalgic comfort of a warm aged cellar workshop of antiquated tools and old seasoned wood
