Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding 2oz
Full disclosure I’ve had plum pudding and it’s a very decent tobacco. I would probably give it four stars. That being said I called to get some information on the club and ask which blend they offer is heaviest on latakia and Matt Guss was a giant jerk. He is an extremely abrasive weiseacer. Most people in the Pipe community are just about the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Not this guy, he is that kind of guy that you hope never moves in next-door to you or you never have to work with. That being said I know he has nothing to do with the production or manufacturing he’s just one of the head guys at the club and this should not be any reflection on Sutliff. But because of my experience with him I will never Buy another Seattle pipe club product. He’s a representative of the company and he represents them very poorly.
Rattray's - Macbeth 100g
This is a great VA Burley make no mistake about it well worth a try.
Cornell & Diehl - Redburn 2oz
Worth a try. This is a pleasant smoke. Nothing too fascinating but nothing offensive. Would be a good all day smoke if you wanted to make it such.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
I can definitely see why some people like it but it’s completely average and mediocre to me. To each their own though. It’s not the best but not by any means is it bad. *I didnt give this a fair shake. It just was not what I usually smoke... I decided to smoke nothing but this for a day or two to see what I could pull out of it and it is in fact quite nice and I have ordered more.
Cornell & Diehl - Blockade Runner 2oz
The stuff is great, not much else to say about it. If you like VA’s and rum give it a try.
Captain Earle's - Stimulus Package 8oz
If you like a full English in my opinion this is by far and away the best tobacco on the market. Plain and simple. I find a lot of other “ Full English“ tobacco’s Orientals to go past the point where they taste like what they are to tasting like potpourri. But this stuff is perfect, just true tobacco flavor. If you’re the kind of person who likes those weird uppity comparison reviews, standing on your porch in mid November all the leaves have fallen and it’s about 50° outside it’s raining and your neighbor has a fire going in their fireplace. Yeah, I guess that’s how I would explain it LOL. To clarify I know that probably doesn’t sound appealing to a some but that feels like home to me.
Captain Black - Royal 1.5oz
American as American gets
If you don’t like aromatics you’re gonna hate this stuff but if you like aromatics it a nice smooth easy lighting easy smoking no bite aromatic. It has a amaretto flavor just like the original. If you’ve had captain black original just imagine that taste with 20% of the Amaretto flavor replaced with a very very light VA taste.
