Cornell & Diehl - From Beyond 2oz
Familiar territory
Well, if you like Peterson Nightcap, Ashton's Artisan's Blend or GL Pease's Quiet Nights, you'll definitely be hooked on this blend. Well balanced English blend as welcome as a family friend you enjoy spending time with.

Cornell & Diehl - Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Hits you perfectly
Well, it is no secret that you get a good nicotine hit with this one. Very relaxing though and I enjoy the flavours. Peaches and apricot hiding in the tin and the peppery spices tingles your sinuses when retrohaling. Better to be smoked after lunch or dinner.

Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
Quality never dies
I can understand why this tobacco mixture has been around for longer than a century. Perfect all day smoke. I wish it was available in bulk.

Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
Like a breakfast
Wow, since the 1st smoke I was impressed with the wonderful flavours hidden in the blend. Freshly baked bread, with butter and a bit of marmalade, while smelling some bacon in the background. Perfect to start your day with a cup of coffee on the stoep.

Peterson - Nightcap 50g
Relaxing end of the day
This one never disappoints. A perfect tobacco to smoke after dinner and before going to bed. The Latakia is perfectly balanced to create an enjoying and satisfying smoke.

Something unique
Well, for starters, the tin note is something most people are not familiar with: hints of dried fruit, old books, but also powdered biltong and the unique smell of an African Elephant. The smoking experience starts with the well known spicy burn of white pepper, caused by the perique. It subsides after about 5 minutes. Then it becomes creamy and mellow, with a hint of sweetness. After 15-20 minutes the nicotine creates a relaxing and peaceful feeling.

Sutliff - Frosty Mint
Ice between the eyes
Wow! New and out of the bag hits you like an ice cold breeze - opening up those sinuses. I mean, who needs anything else when you have this to open up the airways. It needed to dry a bit as it is heavily topped with ice cold goodness. The reason for the relatively low score is that it looses its minty characteristics after some time in storage. Still a good smoke, regardless.

Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Relaxing sweetness
Very flavorful, needs quite a bit of drying time - but oh, so much worth it. The room note is very pleasant. A great tobacco to smoke after dinner, especially during the cold season.
