A pleasant smoke
I’ve had this sitting on the back of shelf since it came out last year. Wasn’t impressed with it straight out of the bag. So, I jarred it and forgot it. Pulled it back out and this evening to break my rotation up. I loaded one of my smaller pipes and headed to the basement with my coffee. The time had really helped this one. It had a pleasant smoke, the caramel and vanilla were noticeably with out being overpowering or gooey. Would definitely recommend this one with some age on it.

One for the Cellar
I bought this in winter of 2017, I thought it was a little rough fresh out of the bag. So, I put it in a jar and stuck in on the bottom self. Fast forward about 14 months and I opened the jar and was pleasantly surprised by the smell of how it mellowed. Filled a pipe this evening and it's aged into a smooth smoke. I'd recommend buying it, jar it , and let it age.

One of the better Aromatics
This has an amazing tin note and I think I could get by smoking it in the house instead of the basement as much as wife liked the room note. However sweet baby jesus where did the nicotine hit come from, be careful this one will sucker punch you!

A great smoke
The rum hits you as soon as you pop the tin. Once you pack your pipe the tobacco you get a thick, relaxing smoke.
Cornell & Diehl - Mississippi Mud 2oz
Damn Good Stuff
I got this about 3 weeks ago and it's been hard to pick anything else off my shelf to smoke. It's a great burning, great tasting smoke.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey
When I first opened the bag this came in I was a little concerned and thought about putting it up until the fall. Gave it a try and it's a smooth and very good smoke, but slow and steady wins the race with this one. Puff to fast and you'll get bit.
Cornell & Diehl - King Cake 2oz
Ok, I know C&D says this will peak between 10&15 years. I still had to open and try it. King Cake is very good now but I think I will jar this cake for a while and order a second one for 2027.

My Go To
This is a smooth smoke that I've enjoyed for a while now.

My first time trying a flake and it was a great smoke. A very good Virginia. Just bought an ounce to sample but will be buying more to keep on hand.
