McClelland - Collector: Beacon 50g
You won’t be disappointed
If you are a va/per smoker you should like this stuff. It lives up to the hype. Everything I read in other reviews is what I got. A great smoke that I hope stays around for a long time. I’ll always have some stashed away.
Sutliff - 707 Sweet Virginia
Good but not great for me
Pure Virginia. Sweet, mellow and easy to smoke. For me though it was lacking. Wasn’t bad, but I didn’t get too much from it. I guess I missed my perique. Probably would be good for blending.
Peter Stokkebye - PS80 Norwegian Blend
Different but nice
I usually smoke va/per or English blends and bought this based on the reviews. I’ve not smoked much oriental blends and wanted to see what I was missing. The Virginia’s are slightly sweet with initial light but that mellows our as you get into the bowl. Orientals are tangy and leave a fresh aftertaste. No bite at all. A blend you don’t have to think about while smoking. A definite all day smoke. My only complaint is that it burns a little fast. I guess this is because of the cut. One to keep in the cellar for sure.
Peter Stokkebye - PS400 Luxury Navy Flake
All Day Flake
I just finished another half pound and getting ready to order more. Only thing I've smoked for about a month. I love va/pers and English blends, but I can't seem to get enough of this stuff. No bite for me. Easy to pack, light, and enjoy. Not much more can be said.
