Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 8oz Now my go to blend. Must have gotten a bad batch in 2017. I wrote a bad review then and regret it. A blender can have a bad day just like the rest of us. After shelving a tin for 2 years I gave it a whirl again, in an unsmoked pipe. Wow! Love it. "Stoved" 4 oz. 3 weeks ago... just opened jar today and fantastic.
Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake Take it slow and enjoy. I have been smoking pipes since I was in college. I'm now 63. This is one of the most superb VA tobacco I've smoked. Had it set up in a jar for 2 years. Just had my first crack at it last night. WOW.
Savinelli - Brunello Flake 100g Dry it for a couple hours! ...after cutting it crosswise. A superb quality smoke and one of the tastiest I have tried over the last 40 years I have been smoking a pipe. Truly a "sleeper" since before a few months ago I didn't equate Savinelli with fine pipe tobacco. I gave it a try and now it is one of my go to blends daily. Give it a whirl and I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed.
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Royal 3.5oz Uber Delicious Thought 7 Seas Reg. was it... Royal is a step up in taste for sure. Great aromatic transition from time to time from the usual English/burley/vaper blends I smoke. Highly recommend.
McClelland - Collector: 3 Oaks Original 50g Smooth Operator At sixty I have tried many, many pipe tobaccos and I can say without reservation this is one of my favorites. Very tasty - the oriental makes this blend special in my opinion. McClelland has done it again. Another stellar blend from a great tobacco house.
Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz Redo I thought the rest of the tin was going in my "potpourri" jar, but thought I'd give it one more try. I pored the whole tin out on a newspaper and mixed it up this morning. I left a pipe bowl worth or for tonight to dry a bit. Just finished a bowl. MUCH better. could taste the latakia, perique and, yes, the rum came through just right. Lesson learned: Mix up your tins first (latakia and perique must not have been on top) before smoking and ALWAYS give C&D blends a third or fourth try. Not my favorite, but a very nice blend.
Cornell & Diehl - Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz Cross-Eyed blender Well, I love most of the C&D blends I've tried, but this is a failure out of the gates. Latakia? Perique? and the rum - only a hint now and a gain. I've tried this two nights as a first and last pipe without any change. Air and cardboard; no flavor just like smoking a stale cigarette To be certain, I love C&D Lagonda and DaVinci among other blends from their house, but this one drops the ball big time. My son tried a bowl too and totally agreed. Definitely will not order again.
Peterson - 3 P's - Peterson's Perfect Plug 50g Very tasty plug What a great combo - I broke in a new Peterson "Devil Anse" 2017 Pipe of the Year with this Peterson plug last night. What a fabulous experience! As mentioned in a few reviews, this plug cake has to be sliced thin. I would recommend a razor blade with a safety edge and cutting away from your body. This worked quite well for me. Also, I'd recommend leaving the slices out overnight before smoking. I will definitely purchase more of this cake.
Peter Stokkebye - PS17 English Luxury Silk-stocking English This has rapidly become my favorite go-to english blend. Silky smooth... the full, rich flavor of the Virginia, and especially the Latakia just keeps getting tastier right down to the dottle. A must try for light English fans.
Daughters & Ryan - Picayune 40g Ditto that unique perique I agree totally with brother Kevin P. Truly unique perique. A must try. I love this belend after dinner with a nice snifter of brandy or cognac. The best of D&R's blends in my humble opinion.
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Night 2oz Something's missing One of the reviews I read before buying this tobacco referred to it as a "spice bomb." Well, I must have received a bad batch. I think the blender forgot to add the Perique and/or the Latakia. While the blend packed and burned very well with ample smoke, it was simply devoid of any "spice." I really enjoy several of C&D's blends, in particular Morley's Best, this was a disappointment. I'm going to give it another try in a couple of days just to be sure.
