Lighters - Kiribi Kabuto Black Matte
If you're looking for just one lighter to purchase for you pipe smoking needs, this is the one. Made in Japan kinda says it all. Great build quality, stylish, and most importantly, functional. You'll get a light every time, and as iconic as Zippo lighters are, I would take a Kiribi over it. Well worth the price in my opinion. Update: After using this lighter for a few years now, I would say this is still a good quality lighter, however; it may be better suited to those who have the luxury of smoking inside. If you have to smoke outside, some patience is required. Zippos stand up better to the elements.
Captain Black - Dark 1.5oz
Sweet, Mild, Smooth
A lot of people like to put down captain black, call it a drug store brand, but I've found it to be very pleasant. It's pretty smooth, smells great out of the pouch, and can be easily smoked right out of the packet or jar. I would recommend this to anyone who likes black cavendish.
Cornell & Diehl - Irish Blessing 2oz
When you crack this tin, a smell of Irish cream smacks you in the face, but when smoking, a lot of the flavor is lost. My tin was very wet, I had to dry this one out alot. It's a decent aromatic smoke, but given the strong smell I was expecting more flavor.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Latakia
This was my first time smoking straight latakia. Wonderful. It was full flavored, smooth, smokey, a little spicy, tastes so good. I would recommend everyone try this; new smokers or latakia lovers alike.
CAO - Eileen's Dream 50g
Not Impressed, beware the hype
It's ok. It's a pleasant smoke in general, but not much flavor in my opinion. I was expecting more.
Sutliff - Panna Cotta 1.5oz
Nice taste, no bite
There's a nice vanilla and caramel smell as soon as you crack the tin. No bite. Pretty good flavor the entire bowl.
