Daughters & Ryan - London Dock 50g
My go to aromatic blend
After hearing the story from Mark Ryan himself and how he recreated the original. I picked up a tin and could taste all of the flavors. The room note is wife approved.
Five Brothers - Five Brothers 1.25oz
More like the 5 Families
Bought this one by mistake. I received the best surprise of my life when I light a bow up. Wonderful burley flavor that was sublime. Also found it worked well to mix in with some aromatic blends that needed more body for my taste. Just don’t smoke it too quickly or the 5 brothers may soon to haunt you.
Peterson - Royal Yacht 50g
There’s Something About Royal Yacht
This has been my go to blend since ever I opened up my first tin. The sweet smell of the “dressing” or topping initially entranced me to light up bowl after bowl. The complexity of Virginias and that sweet taste. It doesn’t disappoint! For me it does best in a smaller pipe. If you pick up a tin, get ready to set sail on the Royal Yacht.
G. L. Pease - The Virginia Cream 2oz
An aro that smoked like a non aro
This blend smoked well for me. It had that body that I crave in a Virginia. The bourbon and vanilla makes it a smooth finish. Thi s has been moved into my rotation and smoked in my Bing's favorite.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
Best English Blend
If you are an English blend lover, this will take you back to the first time you fell in love with English blends. Smokes incredibly cool and smooth from beginning to end. Will definitely move this in to my top rotation.
