Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Best Brown #2
Pretty decent!
Only a mild sweet casing. It's tasteful, unlike aromatics. Forms a nice thick carbon cake.

Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
Underrated
An excellent blend that many have not heard of. A touch of sweet honey notes, excellent!

Lane Limited - Vanilla Black Cavendish
Poor taste
Doesn't get any more disgusting than this.

Lane Limited - Vanilla Black Cavendish
Atrocious
I thought the vanilla syrup in 1-Q couldn't get any worse. This is the absolute worst.

Lane Limited - RLP-6
Terrible
A touch better than 1-Q, which isn't saying a lot. Heavily-cased aromatics are gross.

Captain Black - Original 1.5oz
Horrid
Doesn't get any lower than this. Avoid at all costs. Even among trashy aromatics, this is the worst.

Captain Black - Royal 1.5oz
Garbage
Doesn't get any trashier than this! Even among aromatics, this is the lowest grade stuff.

Captain Black - Grape 1.5oz
Honestly?
Very artificial, low quality tobacco. As if Captain Black could get any more ridiculous.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
Aromatics are garbage
For heavily-cased aromatics, this one is probably among the best! However, like all heavily-cased aromatics, it belongs in the trash.

Sutliff - 707 Sweet Virginia
Not sweet
There are much better Virginias out there, such as Luxury Twist Flake. Despite its name, it isn't even sweet.

Mac Baren - Virginia No. 1
A subpar Virginia
There are much better Virginias out there. This has notes of spice in it that I don't like.

Kramer's - Blend for Cary Grant
English with sugar casing
This is just a standard English blend with some sugar casing. I prefer English blends without the trashy aromatic casing.

Solani - Green Label - 127 50g
No good
Solani makes some fine tobacco but this isn't it. Aromatics are trash with sugar.

Peter Stokkebye - PS400 Luxury Navy Flake
Not spicy
A sweet Virginia with notes of honey. This barely has any noticeable spicy perique, which is a good thing for me.

Carter Hall - Carter Hall 1.5oz Pouch
Overrated
This blend is constantly mentioned so I figured I had to try it. It smells like sweet berries and has a fair room note. However, it's lacking in tobacco taste on your tongue. Quite flavorless in taste.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Grasmere Flake
Floral
If you like floral in a tobacco, this has rose in it. Decent and not overpowering. It's called floral, not "soapy".

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Bob's Chocolate Flake
Excellent aromatic
I absolutely hate wet/goopy heavily-cased aromatics. Aromatics are basically trash to me. Bob's Chocolate Flake, however, is actually quite excellent, even for an aromatic hater such as myself.

Lane Limited - BCA
Better than 1-Q
Like all heavily-cased artificial aromatics, this belongs in the garbage. At least it's better than 1-Q.

Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
First English blend
This was the first English blend I tried and excellent as such. It's relatively light and not as dark as heavier Latakia blends. Perfect for starting to learn what English blends are like.

Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning
Ages well
At first, I hated this blend. It was like smoking hot peppers. After aging it in a mason jar for months, I was surprised that the pepper was subdued and dried fruit flavors were more noticeable.

Lighters - Corona Lighter Flints (5 pack)
Quality flints
Use these for your IM Corona lighters. Although Zippo flints work, these are higher grade. Suitable for your expensive lighter.

Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
Delicious
One of my favorite Virginias. Has a honey-like sweetness. Definitely an underrated blend.

Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed
Solid
Excellent taste for those who like the true taste of tobacco instead of aromatic trash. Dark smoky barbecue taste with a touch of sourness. There's a reason why this is so highly rated.

Peter Stokkebye - PS402 Luxury Twist Flake
Best Virginia
This is my favorite Virginia blend! Despite not being an aromatic, it has a wonderful caramel sweetness and amazing room note. SmokingPipes needs to have this in stock at all times.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Tobacco Pouch Humidifier
Rehydrate dry tobacco
These are PERFECT for rehydrating dry tobacco. Just throw one in your mason jar and the tobacco be humidified again by tomorrow.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Brigham Regular Pipe Cleaners (75 pack)
Best pipe cleaners
They work reliably and are kept clean in a Ziploc bag.

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Chrome Hairlines
Superior lighter
The excellent quality of IM Corona Old Boy lighters at its best value. Beautiful finish that is nicer than the plastic color finishes of the same price.

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Sickly sweet
It's ok for a couple puffs, but beyond that it gets sickening. The odor of vanilla even stains your fingers for a few hours afterwards. Atrocious and makes me want to puke. Can't believe this trash is so popular. People have poor taste.
