About Me:
It's been over a year on this pipe smoking journey. Long have I walked and longer still do I need to travel. Too few pipes and too many tobaccos!

Mac Baren - HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
Mighty is was...
Mac Baren strikes again! The HH series just keeps on giving. Feast your taste buds on this "Bold Kentucky" mightiest of tobaccos. Just rub out, let sit for a few minutes. Then pack, light and enjoy. "Bold" smoky flavors. A dark fired Kentucky fans dream. You want taste? YOU want smoke?! YOU WANT THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME?!?! Then it's Mac Baren's HH Bold Kentucky for you my friend. You won't be disappointed!

Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Definitely one of the betters...
Normally I do poorly with aromatics, but this was pretty alright. Definitely one I keep on had if the need arises. Burns well taste great and I don't always get a chemical/artificial aftertaste. Standard ribbon cut like description stats. If your into aromatics and have not tried Cult Blood Red Moon, you owe it to yourself to give it a go!

Rattray's - Exotic Passion 100g
The tin art is a 10/10...
That's about it though...the tin art fantastic. I wish ever tin could go nuts like this one. Just beautiful! With that said and out of the way. Not a great aromatic. Burns like it was the surface of the sun, barely got it not to. Taste of chemical/artificial and leaves a chemical/artificial aftertaste. The tin note was ok. My wife liked for the most part, but sadly for her, she not the one smoking it. Just disappointed. A shame too for all the time I waited to get my hands on it. That's just my experience. If your into aromatics give it a go. If nothing else you'll have a sweet tin as a souvenir to remember your time with exotic Passion.

A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Gonna have to revisit this one...
Personally not my favorite or maybe not just yet. I bought this after hearing such great things about Escudo. It just didn't hit me like that. It packed and smoked well enough. Maybe it's for you? Give it a shot you might fair better than I. For me...I'm gonna let this age and come back to it. The end...

Peterson - Irish Flake 50g
Great! When you can get it!
Clearly a loved blend! It seems to always be out. So what more could be said right? No, no you'd be wrong for thinking that. From pack to light one couldn't be more pleased. I'd say no need to dry. Comes at the perfect moisture, packs perfect and takes no time to light. So your off to enjoy this tasty treat of a flake. My wife is less pleased with the "stink" as she calls it, but it's a sacrifice I am willing to make for Peterson's Irish flake.

John Cotton's - Double Pressed Kentucky 1.75oz
Wasn't sure at first...
Bought this because of the dark fired Kentucky. Love me some dark fired Kentucky. Well this was a long struggle of revisiting and frowns till I figured it out. Once I let this dry out till almost bones in the desert dry it awoke. It might have just been a me thing, but still. If your looking for a good blend maybe to change things up from your normal rotation give this a shot and some time if it doesn't hit at first.

Mac Baren - HH Old Dark Fired 3.5oz
One blend to rule them all...
Stop! This is the blend your looking for! It is indeed the very last word in tobacco. A smokey blond taste, great tin and room note. If your no light weight when it comes to nicotine you're sure to fall in love. This my go to smoke, my everyday. It could be yours too, so order yourself a tin you deserve the best, so buy the best. Treat yourself!

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop 2oz
New guy here!
I've not been smoking a pipe long maybe two months at most. Loving it. That being said I needed something new. Heard alot of good and some mixed feeling about this blend. I gotta say I'm impressed. Easy to light. Taste great! I didn't notice the nicotine. This my first review so idk this helped, but it was a good smoke. Till next time friends, peace.
