Captain Black - Original 12oz
This Captain is all abt smooth sailing
First this is what pipe tobacco is all about. It’s what you grew up smelling in your grandpa pipe or perhaps your fathers pipe. Is it complex? Lol no is there anything here that will rock your boat? No not really. However it’s smooth like Sunday morning and it’s a classic. So even if you never smoke it at least you can say you bought it. Besides it truly is a pleasant to smoke
Lighters - Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation Soft Flame Pipe Lighter Orange
Does not light my fire
First this lighter is beautiful and has a great feel in the hand. Unfortunately it takes no less than 5strikes to get this thing to fire. For 45 dollars I could have bought 45 bic lighters that all worked on the first try.
St. Bruno - Ready Rubbed 1.75oz
This is absolutely the best and my go to all day smoke. I’ve been smoking pipe for about 5 years around 2-3 bowls a day and have tried just about everything out there that’s had the interest of the YTPC and others. Last but not least just stumbled along and found a unicorn of a tobacco. The floral notes are perfect and mix well with the sweet but not to sweet Virginia’s it’s lightly smoky as well from the perfect blending of the dark fired Kentucky. Out of a 1-10 I give this a strong 8.5-9 as it is a bit moist however very smokable right out of the pouch or tin
Savinelli - Jupiter 2oz
First the pros. If you love burley your going to love this blend. This reminds me of haunted bookshop big time with subtle but very flavorful Darkfired Kentucky with Virginia being clever in the background . I will say this they did a great job on blending these together as you can easily enjoy picking out each of these tobaccos during your smoking enjoyment. Cons. This stuff kicks harder than Chuck Noris on nicotine. If your name is Big Bob ,Hondo, maybe Wild Bill then you could probably smoke this on a 23 day fast with no problem, otherwise this smoke is better saved for after supper.
