Mac Baren - 7 Seas Regular
mild & flavourfull
Bought 4oz based on the reviews on this site. Glad I did. Nice aroma from the bag. Not overpowering. Cut to a generous wide ribbon. Lites easily and stays lit. I like my aromatics, and this one makes the cut for me. Will order again

Cornell & Diehl - Gentleman Caller 2oz
Aromatic with some spice
Room note is pleasant smell of black pepper and dried straw. Tin was dry to damp. Pleasant all day smoke, with no bite and a bit of spice. A typical aromatic, with a nice peppery taste that increasing as you smoke it.

Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
A good Cavendish based blend
For those wishing step up from a straight cavendish, this is a good start. Great tin aroma (plum like), room note is pleasurable. Tin was moist, but if packed loosely in the bowl is managablewith a slow steady draw. Just a slight hint or Latakia and Perique and a good introduction to both. I liked it enough to consider an 8 oz tin for my rotation.

Peterson - St. Patrick's Day 2018 50g
A nice treat for the "wearing of the green"
As soon as you open the tin, the aroma jumps right at you, reminisant of blackberries and dark raspberries. Cut reminds you of small confetti, composed of brown and light tan leaf, with a smattering of dark Cavendish which is cut slightly longer. Out of the tin, the tobacco was moderately moist and need about an hour of drying time before packing. After drying the tobacco it lit easily, giving a lightly darkened smoke, with a pleasant aroma, albeit not as strong as the tin note. Good flavours, not overpowering, no tongue bit. Due to it's moisture content, this tobacco should be packed lightly. A good smoke worthy of Peterson offering it as a regular offering

Cornell & Diehl - Redburn 2oz
Slightly stronger aromatic
Cake was a little moist on first opening tin. What I crumbled off the cake was set to air dry for about an hour before smoking. This tobacco is listed as an aromatic, but I tasted a little more complexity to the smoke. The rum and molassas come through on the first light. Bottom of bowl give me a nicotine hit. A little stronger than most aros, with the Kentucky incorporation. A good alternative aromatic for your rotation

Kramer's - Father Dempsey 50g
Wow! Father Dempsey sure had it good!
Mild, no bite and burns cool. Tin aroma is nice, but the smoke is even better. The next order will be in bulk. In my top three for an every day smoke.

Orlik - Golden Sliced 100g
Unique cut, nice aroma
A unique flake in the 100gm tin. As suggested on this forum, I did not rub this out and just put it whole in the pipe. Initial light had a bit of bite on the tip of the tongue which slowly moved to the sides and eventually dissipated after a few minutes. Tin aroma was fruity. Did not taste the citrus, but rather a berry. Bowl burnt slow and cool, and this is probably a result of the cut and method of packing I used. Flavour was good and a bit stronger than what I usually smoke (aromatics), with a creamy after taste.. The only down side was that the slow and long tenure of the burnt left little flavor at the bottom part of the bowl. Will have to try it again with a rubbing and a lighter packing.

Dunhill - Standard Mixture Mellow 50g
Good daily smoke
Smoked this one while putzing around the workshop, and found it burned quick. Was done in 30 minutes or less. Nothing special, Turkish is notable from the Virginia. As an every day smoke, it’s O.K, but still prefer a light Cavendish like Captain Black Gold. Room note was average, as was the tin. Considering including it in my every day rotation, until something else pops up.

Smoke is as good as it tin/room note
Tin and Room note is very pleasant. and the smoke is just as good. I tried this in an old, lightly used Dr. Grabow which my younger son abandoned. Will have ti dedicate a new pipe to this blend. Found the taste to be lightly to moderately sweet, with a slight bite at the beginning. My tin was moist, causing a few relights a the end, but no gurgling. I would coinsider a larger tin if available. Will definitely buy more for an everyday option.

Dunhill - My Mixture 965 50g
A Good Intro to an English blend
Being an aromatic Cavendish smoker for most of my pipe smoking life, this was a great introduction to an English blend. A nice cool smoke with no bite. Lasted through four innings of the ball game on the radio. Will have to try it a few more times, but based on this first experience I will probably buy more for a second daily choice as a "go to" smoke.

Peterson - Old Dublin 50g
Introduction to English Blends
This was my first try of an English blend and it did not disappoint. Stared off with a newly broken in Missouri Meerscham. The creamy taste and gentle smoke really came through. It burned a little hot, but that may be due to the cob (or my eagerness to try it). Plan to use it in my new St. Patrick's Peterson which my son brought back from Europe. The tin aroma reminded me of damp leather, so I was a little hesitant to try it, but the smoke and flavor sold me.

Captain Black - Gold 1.5oz
Old Standby tobacco
Have been a pipe smoker off and on for the last 40 years. This has been my everyday tobacco for all this time. A light smoke with little bite. Due to it's lighter taste, I like to enjoy it with a snifter of brandy or a single "piernicki" (Polish ginger bread) cookie and coffee.
