Cornell & Diehl - Shandygaff
Webster's dictionary has Shandygaff as tasting like ginger-beer. Well, I don't know about that, but I do know that this is a very good smoke. The burley is very smooth, and if I didn't know better, I'd say there was some Virginia in it. There is a bit of pepper on the tongue, which is enjoyable. I could smoke this most of the day and feel good about it. I hope this gets better with age. I'll buy it again!
Cornell & Diehl - Berry Good
Nothing there. I was expecting more flavor and aroma. Even the burley tasted weak. Although, it can be smoked all day if you don't care about taste and aroma. I smoked it several times in both a briar and a cob. I am glad I tried it, but will probably not buy it again. Maybe with age it might get better.
Daughters & Ryan - English Hoopla 50g
Lots of Hoopla!
This is a very good, mild blend. All the tobaccos in this blend meld together perfectly. I enjoy this tobacco very much and will be ordering much more to smoke and cellar.
F & K - Black Bayou Mist
A new favorite
The Black Bayou Mist is a great blend of latakia, dark fired Kentucky, Va/per and orientals. The combination is very smooth and distinct. I am enjoying this right now in a corn cob pipe with a cup of coffee. If you enjoy latakia blends, give this a try. I have found a new favorite.
Grand Croupier - Boneyard
It' a Bargain!
Boneyard is a very smooth and mellow tasting tobacco. If you like latakia blends, you will like this one. I received it this morning and am smoking some right now in a MM corn cob. It's nothing fancy, just a good old latakia blend. I recommend it.
Dan Tobacco - Choo Choo Train 50g
The light at the end of the tunnel
is not an on-coming train, rather a good tasting tobacco. Choo Choo Train is very mild and has a pleasant aroma. I can smoke this all day and not get tired of it.
