Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Whiskey Twist
Twist type tobacco, you have to prepare it. There's nothing to it . I enjoy the whole tobacco prep thing, it's part of smoking a pipe.It tastes like theres cigar leaf in it ? I can't describe it really, but I like it a lot, It's a great, end of the day/night smoke ! I usually cut a few pieces off (coins) about the thickness of a nickel,rub it out, let it dry for an hour or more. Sometimes I'll cut a few pieces off and let them sit overnight or longer then rub out. But I think it's better when it's drier, it smokes easier. If you don't dry it a little, you'll have to relight it so many times and might not enjoy it as much. I like this when I'm finished with dinner at night I'll have a glass of iced tea , sit outside with the Mrs. and enjoy it, but I've also smoked it first thing in the morning too. You have to try it , I think you'll enjoy it !
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Bird's Eye
Smooth Dark fired
I just smoked a fairly large sized bowl of this and when I first put fire to this tobacco , a smile was made. I wouldn't call this one strong, but I would call it a heavy medium. It has a dark, smoky, ever so slightly cocoa taste, that's really pleasant. It packs and burns good because its the finer shag cut that it is. I'm happy with this one but I know that I might not be able to ever get it again .
Comoy's - Cask No.4
I love this navy flake and with a little age on it , its just great ! I would like to see Comoys come out with a pure virginia plug ! hint hint..
G. L. Pease - Gaslight 8oz
One of my favorites
There's 100 reviews here about it so what can I really add ? I can say this however , Gaslight is one of my top favorites. Paired with a strong cup of coffee , life is good !
War Horse - Bar 1.75oz
War horse bar
Normally I don't smoke aromatics but I just knew this one was going to be good ! I did read some reviews on it a while back and many were very positive . Russ Ouellette did a great job with this tobacco and I had no doubt about it being good ! I love that its in plug form . I'm always searching for plug tobaccos , and always looking for something strong with that good tobacco flavor and this one has that. War Horse Bar is on the low end of being strong , but with a flavor of chocolate/cherry maybe? I have a hard time describing tobacco so please bare with me.. Also I think I can taste a little tonquin which is nice. Thank you everyone at Smokingpipes for always taking care of my orders ! Clarissa and everyone working there , thank You for making my tobacco orders a pleasant treat and I'd hug you if I could., One of these days I would like to sit and smoke with you guys !
G. L. Pease - Triple Play 8oz
Working Mans Tobacco
I love the way the perique tastes with the virginias , its not too much , and the strength is perfect for what I like . I always liked plugs & twists ( hint hint ) Greg ... Greg Pease knows pipe tobacco in ways that nobody else would understand . I can tell by smoking the blends he produces. This plug is no doubt a great tobacco that the working man or anyone can surely enjoy and relax with at the end of the day ! If you buy this one from smokingpipes you won't be disappointed I guarantee it , and that's why I rate it at 5 stars and I know you will too !
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Coniston Cut Plug
This has an excellent , true tobacco taste , along with the famous "lakeland floral " which is very noticeable upon the charring light . I do like the Lakelands and Coniston Cut Plug has that . The Lakeland essence dissipates once your into the bowl, and then you get more of that very nice , rich , dark "Quality" tobacco taste , that only the finer quality tobaccos have , you guys know what I'm talking about . The nicotine is good and it gets my heart thumping which I look for in good pipe tobacco . I love smoking this one sitting outside enjoying the moonlight with the Mrs., especially in the colder months Don't be afraid of trying this one, you'll be glad you did ! Just sip it slow and you'll be sure to enjoy this great cut plug from one of the "Finest" tobacco companies in the world ! Maybe I could do tv commercials!
Comoy's - Cask No.7
Great Virginia/Perique !
I bought some about one and a half years ago and have been aging most of it. Cask #7 has wonderful notes of raisin, plum, and dried fruits. It has a nice smooth sweetness to it, and nice hay and citrusy notes, with a subtle spiciness from the perique. I smoke it out of a seasoned briar. I have one pipe for this type of tobacco and it sure is worth it. I don't have expensive pipes, just good briars that smoke well. I smoked some of this about a month after I bought it and loved it right away but it's much better with a little time on it. Comoy's sure knows what great tobacco is all about and I'll always keep some for good times !
