Cornell & Diehl - Shandygaff
A top tier tobacco
The flavor is unique. The smoking qualities could not be better. Shandygaff light easily, burns cool, stays lit and leaves little trash in the bottom of the bowl. The flavor is rich and strong. The nicotine level is rewarding. The price is reasonable. When I want something other than an English/Balkan blend to smoke, Shandygaff is one of my first choices.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Top 5 English, at least
Truly great English blend for a great price. Every time I smoke Arango Balkan Supreme, and I do often, I am amazed again at how good it is. Great flavor, smokes cool and slow, no bite, leaves pipe clean and dry, great Virginias get better with age.

Cornell & Diehl - Shandygaff
Perfect for a drink
This wonderful blend is a perfect complement to a dirty martini. I’m having one now, and I’m drinking one now. Both are salty and wonderful.

Warped - Kings Stride 2oz
Best in class
‘s Cloud Hopper, and GL Pease’s Robusto and Key Largo, in that order. All are 5-star winners for me, but King’s Stride is in a class of its own. It is a balanced blend, as are the Pease blends, but the cigar leaf still takes a starring role, though not as rough and tumble as in some blends. The flavor is enhanced by cavendish-style fermentation, which also tamed the monster that cigar leaf can be in some blends. The judicious use of burley along with perique and perique gives a medley of flavors that enhance the cigar flavor. Inclusion of black cavendish makes the blend easy to light and smoke. It burns cool and slow with no bite.

Warped - Cloud Hopper 2oz
Great cigar leaf blend
Stronger flavored but less refined than Warped’s other cigar-leaf blend but just as deserving of a five-star rating. Strong, copious nicotine, Tasty Virginia’s. Fragrant perique all combine to form one of the most satisfying cigar-leaf smokes. The cirillo probably is Cirillo 98, a 3rd generation hybrid of the original Cuban seed leaf bred to resist fungus attacks.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Oh my! How good!
I tried Balkan/English blends for a few weeks looking for the best. This was it.

Arango - Balkan Supreme
Best in class
Great tobaccos perfectly blended and processed. The best English blend I have tried. I’ve tried most.

G. L. Pease - Samarra 8oz
The Best
This is a truly special blend with flavor you will find nowhere else. Other than a couple of my own, this is my favorite, and my absolute favorite among any blends you can buy of-the-shelf. It deserves the 5-star rating and then some. Amazingly satisfying and pleasing.
