Cornell & Diehl - Smokingpipes 20th Anniversary Blend: XX Flake Dark 2oz
Rare One
Okay... It is a very limited run so it can not be my new daily blend. The virginias are obviously very young at this point but they do settle down and play quite nicely with the aged perique. I can not imagine what this will be like with some serious age on it. At this point I am thinking a couple of years will make this an unbelievable blend. At ten plus years.... it should be sublime. I wish i had more tins of this.

Picked up the silver coin
This will go into my rotation right beside Old Joe Krantz, my daily bowl stuffer. The Dark Fired Kentucky is nice little change of pace. It seems to add a little up front smoothness. I really enjoy perique. Perique is no small player in this blend. It does not smoke very hot at for me at all if I am not huffing it like a freight train. I am going have to order a whole heap of this stuff to make sure that I never run out. Thank You Mr. Pease!

Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Black & Chrome Engine Turned
This one is a keeper
This lighter is fairly reliable. It may get a little termpermental at times but that is likely user error (improper maintenance or tensioning). I intend to keep one around.

La Flor Dominicana - Capitulo II
Nice Cigar
LFD knows how to roll a good cigar. This one is more nuanced than most of their offerings. If you are a fan fuller bodied, heavier cigars you should try this one.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 16oz
This one is a keeper
This is one of hte few English blends I really like. I find this to be quite comparable to Penzance.... no joke. No I did not say it was identical or state that it was the equal. But Pirate Kake is definitely in that ball park IMHO.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Black Irish X
Good One!
Eat well before trying this one the first time. It mixes well with the brown rope. Try preparing it in different ways. It will need some drying time but it is well worth it IMHO.

Good Stuff Here
If you are not used this one, eat well before you try it. Try mixing it 50/50 with the black rope.

Cigar Accessories - Credo Cigar Scissors
Not bad for the money
I do not expect it to last as long as my Xikar has.... but i did not spend nearly as much on it. It does the job very well. Hard to beat at that price point.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Shank Reamer 3.5mm
This one is a keeper
I was suprised by the quality and size of this piece when I removed it from the box. Handle feels nice in the hand.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Neerup Leather Pipe Cleaning Kit
Good item to have
I am glad that I have this one. It is pretty good for a quick basic scraping and brushing out. I am glad to have the tools stored in a very manageble fashion like this. It does have a touch of class.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Peterson Sherlock Holmes Pewter Tamper
Not bad at all
Nice weight. I wish it had a dottle pick but not a biggie. Nice detail. It does bring a bit of old world charm....

Pipe Tools & Supplies - Tsuge Briar Tamper
Nice one!
Well made. Fits nicely in the hand. Classy.

Pipe Accessories - Neerup Leather Tobacco Mat Chocolate
I Like It!
No More Paper Towels! This is very affordable, very practical and it brings a touch of class. I like mine alot. If you are looking for an affordable gift you should really consider this one.

Samuel Gawith - Brown No. 4 250g
My Favorite
This carries the heft I tend to like. might want to eat well before trying this the first time. It is great all by it's self of mixed with the balck rope. It tend to build a cake fast. be prepared to use a couple of extra pipe cleaners after you finish the pipe.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Black Twist Sliced
Good Stuff Here
I really enjoy this one. It makes my mouth water when I open the bag. It does need some drying time. I really like to mix this 50 / 50 with the brown rope. Others say it is really strong to them. If you have not tried it before I would say eat a good meal before smoking.

Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz
Good All Day For Me
This one of my favorites. I only wish it had more perique. I order this one by the pound or maybe I should say pounds... For me it is a good smooth all day kind of smoke.

Pipe Tools & Supplies - 8deco Legend Tamper Black with Smoke Swirl
This one is a keeper
Nice lentgh.Good weight. I like the areated foot. The spoon bill is nice for pulling tobacco back to the draft hole

Samuel Gawith - Cabbie's Mixture 50g
Good One!
Starts out a bit peppery and settles into a nice mellow VA / PER. It has a character of warmth like I might feel relaxing in a rocking chair by a fire on a really cool night. I have to pace myslef so that i do not go through my stash too quickly.
