Cornell & Diehl - Adagio 2oz
Pretty Good
not bad per se but there are better blends out there. I've had a few times the virginia, and Burley seem prominent in my opinion. I cannot taste the turkish at all which is too bad I think it would even this blend out. Overall not too bad, I'm letting it air out for awhile and and try it again.

Seattle Pipe Club - Potlatch 2oz
Good blend
I'm just starting out trying a lot of different blends. This has a ton of different tobaccos, as such its quite complex. That being said it's very balanced, nothing particularly overwhelms the other in the blend. it does have an oatmeal tone to it like others have mentioned but is very tasty none the less.

Plastic gold....
What can I say it's the gift of awesomeness. Who wouldn't love 100 off a pipe or a ton of tobacco. A crazy person that's who.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
good to have
What can you say its a bit protector. its comfortable, and works.

Capstan - Ready Rubbed Blue 1.75oz
nice!
Very nice, fresh hay aroma, sweetness from the Virginians and somewhat bold. very nice!

Dunhill - Nightcap 50g
Strong
For me it's a very strong blend, excellent flavors but if you haven't had anything to eat and you stand up after smoking you will promptly find yourself on the floor!

G. L. Pease - Gaslight 2oz
Really excellent English
really great blend by GL Pease, has tons of a flavor for an english blend, very complex but hard to describe, I get fruit notes, that are mellow almost like banana, but also some cedar wood. the flavor profile is all over the board, very nice though.

Captain Earle's - Private Stock 2oz
good English
Excellent flavor, burns well, and has a very simple earthy/leather flavors to it. probably needs to age a little but it's a good start.

Cornell & Diehl - Bijou 2oz
Another Winner
Another excellent Blend by C&D. Becoming one of my favorites, it has just the right enough sweetness and balance, and it will only become better with age.

Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding 2oz
One of my favorites
Excellent English blend that has so much flavor it almost seems like an aromatic. very nice buttery smoke, rich robust flavor. Excellent

Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding Special Reserve 4oz
Excellent
I was curious how it would compare to the regular plum pudding, you will not be disappointed. Tremendously rich and more depth in the flavor than the original and that's saying a lot.

McClelland - Special: Anniversary 100g
Excellent Virginia Blend
Lots of spice, and typical vinegar notes from the Virginia leaf but it doesn't transfer to the smoke. Very pleasant room note. Needs a little bit of drying. Smoking reveals a nice citrus sweetness, no tongue bite, it smokes smooth and sweet. Very nice I can only image it tasting better the more you cellar it.

McClelland - 40th Anniversary 100g
Excellent!

Mac Baren - HH Vintage Syrian 1.75oz
It's ok
To be honest It's not my favorite. I'm getting more smokiness than flavor in this, it's hard to distinguish the Latakia from Turkish Oriental and Dark Fired Kentuky since they all have smokey undertones. it doesn't taste bad it's just that it doesn't have a lot of different flavor to it. It's definitely robust, but maybe just a little bit different than what I'm used to.

Cornell & Diehl - Sansepolcro 2oz
Interesting..
I think this could use a little cellar time but it's not bad. it seems to be made with an Italian flair, meaning there are floral notes in the background. I can also taste some clove and some other spice, anise? however it does have an earthiness to it which I'm not sure plays well with the floral. I feel like if you let it cellar for awhile everything will become more balanced and bring a sweeter note to the Virginias and make this a hidden treasure.. time will tell.

Lane Limited - Wild Hare 1.75oz
Very nice
Excellent blend, hints of vanilla very faint in the background. Reminds me of Cult Conspiracy a little bit. it does have a bit of Burley and Light and Dark Cavendish that evens it out to a medium smokiness. overall very interesting blend not bad at all.

Pipe Accessories - Peterson Avoca 2 Pipe Bag
Nice bag for the price
Very soft leather, odd color kind of a green/blue color. overall very nice, has plenty of storage for lighter or matches, tamper, 2 pipes, tobacco the works.

Amphora - Original Blend 1.75oz
Meh...
I was excited to try this after reading the review/story in the smoking pipes newsletter but I have to say I'm underwhelmed by the product. Tin/pouch note is pleasant, I get a lot of notes of apricot, chocolate, fig. However when you light it I get really no flavor at all, just smoke no distinguishing flavors. maybe it needs to age a little. Also the cut is very inconsistent, some large chunks, some very small ribbons. I'll try it in a few months or a year and see if I can get anything else from it otherwise I'm pitching it.

Peter Stokkebye - PS52 Proper English
Excellent English
very good English blends, mild to medium, you can get the sweetness of the virginias, and sweet smokiness of the latakia, and spice of the oriental. The flavors all work well together in this blend. excellent everyday smoke

La Flor Dominicana - Double Ligero Digger Maduro
Pace yourself
Seriously this cigar will sneak up on you. Very strong. I smoked this cigar for 3 hours while smoking a brisket outdoors. First, probably one of the best cigars I've had, strong, bold, excellent flavors of cedar, leather, tobacco, black pepper. Large smoke output, you can make thick smoke rings galore! About half way through my wife asked if I'm still on my first cigar.....yup! this thing is amazing.

Acid - Kuba Kuba
Not bad
Not my favorite smoke, I don't really like the sweetened tip on cigars, it smokes fine, good aroma. this is a cigar that's not bad while mowing or taking a break from yard work. not a cigar I usually pick but when I grab a rare bourbon or scotch for some "serious" smoking, but a good everyday cigar.

Alec Bradley - Prensado Churchill
Beautiful Cigar
You can tell by the initial look and scent that this cigar is special. Excellent flavors of pepper, cedar, leather, very creamy, dark chocolate. I have never been able to get the cigar to burn straight so a few touch ups here and there but other than that its a wonderful cigar. Perfect draw, excellent construction some tooth noticed on the wrapper and burn. The flavors change and intensify to the end. Excellent!

Hoyo de Monterrey - Excalibur No. 2 English Claro
excellent mild smoke
Sometimes you don't want a huge bold flavor in a cigar and in those cases the Excalibur is an excellent choice. Nothing extreme on flavors, slight nutty, leather notes, creamy very nice relaxing cigar.

Sutliff - Molto Dolce 1.5oz
Very nice
I originally was gifted a try of this blend in my local B&M. As they didn't have any more I ordered from smoking pipes. All I can say is wow, excellent blend, creamy, sweet, toasty flavors of caramel, vanilla. Almost a butterscotch flavor. Very, very wet, it will be burn hot and go out frequently until you let it dry and season. however even while it was wet the flavors were excellent.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Brigham Bristle Pipe Cleaners (75 pack)
Excellent
Just the ticket to keep your pipe clean. It has some soft and stiff bristles to really keep your pipe clean.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Brigham Rock Maple Insert (8 Pack)
Cool and dry
Just the ticket to keep your Brigham pipe cool and dry smoking make sure you let the filter dry completely before smoking again. I don’t find it strict the flow much every pipe smokes differently but I don’t feel has though this filter hinders the draw.

Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
Excellent fall blend
My favorite autumn blend. Great notes of caramel and toffee and vanilla. The sweetness coming from the Virginias work well with the toasty Carmel notes. My wife even comments how it smells much like a caramel latte. Excellent seasonal blend!

Peter Stokkebye - PS306 English Oriental Supreme
Excellent English blend
Excellent flavor throughout. Slight floral notes on the finish excellent tastes of burley and black cavendish. I only get a slight twang of the orientals but that might improve over time. Not overpowering I would give it a medium strength as far as English blends go. Good anytime smoke.

McClelland - M27 - Three Cherry Blend
Excellent mild cherry
Probably one of the best cherries I’ve had. It burns relatively cool just don’t puff too much. The flavor is not overwhelming it’s mild with a cherry and to my mind slight vanilla note. It tastes more like a natural cherry not a jolly rancher candy type cherry. Very nice relaxing blend.
