Chonowitsch - T 12 50g
This is my first try of T-12. I really like the harmony of all the 3 tobaccos come together with a great flavor and richness. I never smoked a Virginia blend with oriental tobacco. I like oriental English blends, this is what tickled my curiosity of oriental and Virginia tobacco mixed. Now I'm going to look for oriental and Virginia blends because t-12 tastes really good. This is will be in my rotation. 2 thumbs up K&K
Lighters - Xikar Pipeline Soft-Flame Lighter Black and Goldtone Plated
This is my first pipeline lighter. It's smaller than I thought, but really nice. It functions great. If anyone gets this pipeline lighter, I think they will be content.
Tampers & Tools - 8deco Legend Tamper Bordeaux with Swirl
This pipe tamper is really nice. The aesthetics of it is great. The length of it is good. The mechanics of it is great. Seems like I'm getting more out of this tamper than I expected to be honest. Thumbs up for this 8deco tamper.
Erinmore - Erinmore Flake 50g
I was looking for a alternative to Peter Stokeyebe luxury twist flake. I was referred to Erinmore Flake. I was told if I like luxury twist, I would like Erinmore flake. I'm truly impressed. Erin more Flake has a slight fruity taste. This will be in my regular rotation. I give this 2 thumbs up
Tampers & Tools - Brigham Wood Grain Pipe Tool
Sucks & poor quality
This is my 3rd time purchasing Brigham pipe tool. The same result is the scraper is excessively loose. Because it's loose, you got to be careful when scraping out the tobacco of your pipe. The wood panel is loose. The pipe tool looks great, but the mechanics of it sucks. I use it as edc pipe tool.
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night
since 1989 Dunhill 965 mixture has been my all time favorite English blend. But in the recent 3 years I have been spoiled by oriental forward blends like Dunhill Durbar, has been my 2nd favorite English blend. Now that Durbar is no longer available, Presbyterian, C&Ds Bridge Mixture has stole my heart. I decide to try bayou night, and I'm glad I did. Bayou night ingredients plays in harmony with each other, burns really good and very flavorful which I like about English blends like this aka scottish blends. I'm a new sucker for Bayou night. Good job C&D
Cornell & Diehl - Interlude 2oz
Few days ago I called smokingpipes what would be a good counter part to Peter Stokeyebe luxury twist flake. Customer service recommended C&D interlude. I must say it's really delicious. I vaguely taste the honey, but it does remind me of luxury twist flake with its own distinctive taste to it. Again, another C&D blend I'm going to frequent.
Cornell & Diehl - Burley Flake #1 2oz
C&D burley #1 is a great sweet yet earthy tasting blend. Consistent in flavor and burns somewhat slow. Good job C&D 🙂
Partagas - 1845 Classico Gigante
A great smooth rich smoke
Cohiba - Nicaragua Gigante N60
Camacho - Triple Maduro 60 x 6
Rocky Patel - Sun Grown Maduro Sixty
Rocky Patel - Decade Robusto
The decade line cigars are truly a great smoke that you will enjoy.
La Gloria Cubana - Serie R #6 Maduro
Series R and the series RR are my favorite. I have a thing for large ring gauge cigars. For some reason in my mind a 64 ring gauge cigar smokes longer than a smaller ring guage cigar.
Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
I've heard so much hype about this blend. I must say I am a fan of this blend. Easy to pack, moisture just, and very flavorful. Boy do love how all the blends work harmoniously together, the oriental forward. This is going to give my everyday smoke C&D Bridge Mixture some competition as for rotation.
Presbyterian - Presbyterian 50g
This is my 1st time trying this blend. I decided to give it a try after all the hype I've heard about this blend. And boy it is good. It has a distinct flavor somewhat just like my regular English blend by Cornell and Deihl's Bridge Mixture that is awesome. I'm getting more tins of this.
Newminster - No.403 Superior Round Slices
This is my 1st time trying round slices. So far, my 1st bowl is pretty good. I like this blend.
Cornell & Diehl - Billy Budd 2oz
I definitely will be ordering this again. This blend is a great balance of tobacco's. You can appreciate the cigar reminence if you like cigars. This is really a good smoke.
Mac Baren - Symphony
This is my 1st time puffing this blend. I truly must say, this is a nice zesty smooth rich flavored all day smoke. I enjoy this blend with glass of sweet tea.
Cornell & Diehl - Red Carpet 2oz
Great vaper. Reminds me of Escudo
Cornell & Diehl - Bridge Mixture 2oz
C&D hit it on point with this blend. Pleasant aroma, rich flavor, latakia is present but not over bearing. I really like this. Bridge Mixture is a blend in my rotation. 2 thumbs up
Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed
I like this blend. Its has a bold earthy flavor. Burley forward but not over powering. Very rich flavor taste. 2 thumbs up
Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East 2oz
A good alternative to my Dunhill Durbar. It's a slow cool burning smoke, full of flavor.
Hearth & Home - WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Since Dunhills Durbar is no longer available, I'm on a quest to find a replacement. I was told by the folks at smokingpipes to try Cornell & Deihls rajah court, wow its really good. But now I tasted white knight, now I have decisions to make lol. For all the Durbar lovers, try this and tell me what you all think?. Thumbs up to Hearth & Home
Cornell & Diehl - Rajah's Court 2oz
Since Dunhil's Durbar is no longer in production, I'm looking for a alternative replacement. I was told by the folks at smokingpipes to try this blend, and wow it is really good. To all the Dunhill Durbar lovers, try this Rajah Court.. I give this blend thumbs up.
Solani - White and Black - 763 50g
of late, I have been trying different English blends to replace Dunhill & McClelland English blends are gone. This is quite interesting for me and I like this blend
Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Of all the hype I've heard about this blend, my taste buds said it's ok. Good tin moisture, good tin aroma, extremely mild taste. It taste good, but it doesn't live up to the hype.
Savinelli - Doblone d'Oro 100g
I love the semi spicy sweetness of this italian style pipe tobacco. My question is, is it suppose to be extremely dry? Though dry, it taste really good. A different approach from Mac Barren/Savinelli
Robert Lewis - Tree Mixture 50g
I must say this is really good. A very unique taste for an English blend that I am accustomed to
Castello - Fiammata 2oz
This is my first can of fiammata. I must this a good vaper. I will give this a thumbs up
Solani - Virginia Flake - 633 50g
A buddy of mine gifted me a can of Virgina flake, awww man it is good cool smoke and very flavorful. You can detect very little perique
Brebbia - Balkan 50g
Great blend, very flavorful
A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
This is a ole classic vaper how is sippose to be blended. I like the natural taste of this old school vaper. I highly recommend this blend.
Mac Baren - Virginia No. 1
Good smoke with pleasant smooth taste
Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
Good smoke, but I can barely taste it.
Peter Stokkebye - PS402 Luxury Twist Flake
This Virginia is really good. It has mild sweet flavor, but you can taste the Virginia as well the pleasant chocolate, cocoa flavor.
G. L. Pease - Stonehenge Flake 2oz
As of the past year or so, I've been over interested in flake tobacco, primarily Virginia flake tobacco. This is my 1st experience with Stonehenge, I give it a thumbs up. I slightly notice the perique in this blend, and this is a good thing since I'm not a big fan of large dose of perique in my tobacco. I will be ordering this again.
Dunhill - Durbar 50g
Dunhill pipe tobaccos are really good. I find myself using Dunhill pipe tobaccos as the measuring stick when it comes to non aromatics. Durbar is a great old school English blend.
Dunhill - Flake 50g
Good tobacco. I haven't smoked this In years. I remember it being slightly more favorable.
Cornell & Diehl - Sansepolcro 2oz
Sansepolcro is a great italian blend. I really like the Kentucky that I can really taste. The florets is truly awesome. Get you a couple tins to cellar. I will be puffing on thiscas much as possible, then again, I may save it for special occasions
Cornell & Diehl - Bijou 2oz
this c&d blend is a true winner. this is my 3rd tin, and I love this virgina flake
Cornell & Diehl - Bijou 2oz
my first time trying this blend. I really like this virginia flake. the honey flavor adds value to the natural virginia flavor.
Dunhill - London Mixture 50g
It's been awhile since I smoked this. It reminded me why I like english blends, because of latakia and oriental tobacco. My mixture 965 is still my favorite English blend lol
Dunhill - Elizabethan Mixture 50g
This is my 1st time smoking this blend. I must say, it is ok. I like it. I will re-order
McClelland - Club Blends: CPCC Scottish Woods 50g
great taste, great components of this blend. I will order this again
McClelland - GKCPC: Chocolate Silk 50g
This is a great aromatic blend. I wish this was sold in bulk volume. I will be ordering this again.
Lane Limited - LL-7
I tried this Lane blend basically because I was told it was better tasting than 1-Q. Holy and behold my friend was right. Creamy flavorful & mild.
Cornell & Diehl - Orient Express 2oz
My main traditional English blend is Dunhill's My Mixture 965. I've been a 965 fan for 25 years or so. I've dab around other good English blends. When I found out C&D was in my backyard, I asked head blender (Jeremy) since I like 965, what English blends he would recommend to me. 1 of the blends was Orient Express. Jeremy told me I may like this better than the 965. I must say, he's about right. Orient Express is neck to neck with 965. Very flavorful and I can taste all the components in this blend. Nice room note. I will be putting this in my rotation.
Cornell & Diehl - Plantation Evening
This a good mild English blend. Smokes nice and smooth. Half way down the bowl is when the perique really is flavorful. I recommend this blend for guys that has a perique passion.
Cornell & Diehl - Espresso
Good blend. Taste great, and is definitely a espresso dlight. Smokes consistent and smooth and wow a great room note aroma. I will order again
Cornell & Diehl - Dark Chocolate
A good flavorful smoke. Indeed the room note is of a chocolate smell
Cornell & Diehl - Constellation
Nice jar aroma, a pleasant taste of virginia and rich latakia. well balanced cool smoke. I would recommend this to non-aromatic & english blend lovers. This will be in my collection
Rocky Patel - Java Maduro Robusto
If you're aromatic pipe tobacco fan like me, you will love this cigar. Rich sweet chocolate flavor
Rocky Patel - Decade Robusto
Out of the Rocky Patel line up, the decade series is my favorite. The taste of this cigar has hints of a nice creamed coffe
Peter Stokkebye - PS24 Nougat
My favorite aromatic
Nougat has been my favorite aromatic since I started pipe smoking in 1990. I recommend this blend for beginners to develop patience in pipe smoking, and learn to take your time in smoking a pipe. The only down fall of this blend, it will burn hot and bite if you smoke it fast. But the taste and room note compensates for the bite and hot smoke. If you blend it with Lane Limited's 1-Q it taste just like a Baby Ruth candy bar. I call this, Mr G's blend lol
Dunhill - My Mixture 965
Favorite English Blend
I smoke only a few english blend. 965 Ikeep coming back to. It's a real smooth mild mellow smoke. You can taste all the makings of this blend. The room note is nice and mild. 965 has been my favorite english blend for 25 years.
Lane Limited - 1-Q
1-Q has been my 2nd favorite aromatic for 20 years. A nice rich smooth taste with a delightful room note.
Cornell & Diehl - Chocolate Cavendish
This blend smells great when you open the bag and tobacco jar. It burns moderately, not to fast, not to slow. The taste rating is correct, because I can taste it, but it's a slight faint taste. I was told by C&D blender to blend it with C&D's dark chocolate or espresso to enhance the flavor. The room note is great
Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening
Nice and pleasant
Aroma says hello when you open the can. A nice mellow creamy pleasant smoke. The room note is mild and pleasant. I will buy it again
