G. L. Pease - Westminster 2oz
Absolutely deserving of all of the positive reviews. From tin to tin, Westminster is a consistently good blend. Not a "lat bomb", nor is it overly sweet. As close to perfect as an English/Balkan can get.
Cornell & Diehl - Sansepolcro 2oz
I usually smoke new blends in a cob. Not this one. I used my favorite briar instead. I rubbed it out a little for uniformity, and then gave it some fresh air. There's nothing exotic here, just top shelf tobacco. Being Virginia based, it's on the sweet side. The dark fired(I'm a burley smoker) is fantastic. The Cavendish seems to soften the smoke. All in all? Excellent! The after taste alone is worth the price of admission. Well done C&D!
Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz Blue Label
Being a fan of OJK and HB, I ordered a tin of this to try. 4 days later an empty tin and a burned out cob went into the trash can. nice and rich with just the right amount of sweet. I'll be ordering this one in bulk. Edit: A year in a jar made this even better. The Virginias did what Virginias do, and then melded with the burley in a wonderful way. Then I bought a couple genuine Missouri Meerschaums and dedicated them to OJKB. My everyday.
Kramer's - Father Dempsey
I keep coming back to this blend. It's well balanced, smooth, and burns well. I have not experienced any bite. Thank you smokingpipes for offering this great smoke.
