Mac Baren - HH Pure Virginia 1.75oz
As much as I love MacBaren tobaccos, this was kind of a "Meh". I have found nothing that gets close or beats ODF. I'll try it again down the road and if my opinion changes ya'll will be the first to know.
Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 3.5oz
Every time I open the tin I have to resist tasting the flakes. It smells wonderful. So, the tin note rates a 10. The smoking note is relaxing and pleasant. The room note gets no argument from the wife. I can't imagine ODF not being available. but I'm stock piling tins one at a time just in case. I won't be without.
Cornell & Diehl - Carolina Red Flake 2oz
Okay, I'll admit it, I bought this on another site. I popped it open and was surprised it had a mild scent. I put it in a Peterson and was pleasantly met with good taste and good room note. The wife didn't jump up and leave the room. I would recommend this and I'll would order it again.
Cornell & Diehl - Blockade Runner 2oz
Lives up to the hype
From opening the tin, to the room note to the smoking, I'm going to keep this one around. Yes, I would go back to sea for this blend.
Mac Baren - Original Choice 3.5oz
I bought it on a lark
Tobacco like is drawing my away from aromatics. The room note is good, it's just a pleasure to smoke. This could be a year round every day smoke for me. I meant to give it 5 stars but had a finger slip.
Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 1.75oz
It grew on me
I can't say I was impressed with the first bowl, but as it worked it's way through my tobacco rotation I found myself enjoying it. I thought the room note was interesting too. This is a keeper and a smoke for all seasons.
Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
One of my top two
As titled it is one of my top two tobaccos. On opening it smells like desert. I would recommend this particularly to new pipers for the pure pleasure and a good beginning in the pipe world. I'll never be without this tobacco in reach.
Missouri Meerschaum - Country Gentleman 1.5oz
Didn't care for it. I didn't like it in the pouch. I didn't like it taste or smell of the smoke. I didn't like the way the ashes smelled in my trash can. I love MM pipes, but I pass on this tobacco.
Half and Half - Half and Half 1.5oz
This was a pleasant surprise. It smells like honey. It could be my every day smoke.
