St. Bruno - Flake 1.75oz
Very different then ready rubbed. GREAT!
This is my favorite tobacco in the Kentucky line of flavor. I really only smoke Virginias with some exceptions. I thought the two St. Bruno tobacco's would be similar or the same....no way. The tin flake is far better. The flavor is a mild Kentucky. Hay, grass, horses.......great retro hale. I really recommend this tobacco. If you like the ready rubbed version this is mellower and more flavorful.
Toscano - Toscanello Aroma Cioccolato
I just got my first pack and to say I'm happy with them is an understatement. They do smell stronger than they taste but extremely flavorful and you really get the chocolate notes. I find them to smoke on the quicker side for a dryer cigar. Well worth a try. Highly recommended
Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1882 Founders Blend 1.4oz
Fantastic & Well Balanced
My favorite ribbon cut 4th Generation tobacco. Every flavor is well balanced. Its been a go to blend. Definitely worth trying.
Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1966 1.4oz
Nothing about this blend is bad. Very balanced. The rum is there to sweeten but no real flavor comes from it. My tin was a bit dry. I would say it's a sweetish English. Hits the notes. Can get bitter from time to time. We'll worth a try.
Sutliff - Molto Dolce 1.5oz
By far my favorite sweet blend. It is very wet and can make it hard to stay lit. I did need to dedicate an unfiltered corn cob to just this blend to keep the mess down. It is well worth the little extra pain. Very little bitterness.
Arturo Fuente - Exquisitos Maduro
Quick and Great
I was familiar with others in the AF line and was happy so after trying this one it was no different. I loved it smooth and very similar to its larger brothers in the family. Great price great flavor. If you like an AF Maurdo but are short on time this is the one.
Captain Black - Grape 1.5oz
Favorite Captain Black
I Smoke a wide variety of brands price and flavors. I've tried many in the captain black family and the grape is by far the best. I smoke it out of an unfiltered corn cob. Great flavor but it does turn bitter by the end of the bowl. Sometimes very quickly. Overall for the price point it's fantastic!
Lighters - Kiribi Mikazuki Short Black Matte
High Quality Very Happy
I've used this lighter for about 3 months now. I use to use a Zippo and after switching to this lighter I've never gone back. The mini fits perfect into a leather Zippo belt case. There is not a bad thing I can say about this lighter. Very highly recommend.
Mac Baren - HH Latakia Flake 1.75oz
My Favorite Latakia blend. Very balanced without being overpowering. I do find that it is hard to stay lit in a corn cob pipe. It can turn bitter in the end sometimes. Definitely highly recommend
Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Delfinas
Very Hard Draw
The Drew Estate Kuntucky fire is one of my favorite cigar lines but this one was very disappointing. It was a very hard draw. I couldn't finish it. The flavor was the same as the rest in the family but just lacking due to the hard draw.
Drew Estate - Isla del Sol Maduro Breve
A little too Sweet
I love Maduro cigars and seeing a sweetened one interested me. I enjoyed the smoke but the sweet was a little overpowering taking away from the natural flavors. I would still recommend to anyone looking for a real sweet smoke.
James J. Fox - Banker's 50g
Very Cigar Like
I found the mix very nice. A lot of similarities to a fine cigar. The only issue I see is the blend does tend to bitter by the middle of the bowl. Definitely recommend for anyone who likes pipes and cigars.
Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation - 1931 Flake 1.4oz
One of the best mixtures .
I have very definite tastes in my tobacco choices. For example I love Mixture Flake and Dragon Flake along with others of course. This 1931 is like a summer day in a fresh cut hay field.I taste the grassy Virginia's most of all. Very refreshing. When you retro hale you taste the hey loft. The mixture is pure joy to me. Smoke slow, no burn no bite. I enjoy this 1931 almost daily. Try it if you like grassy Virginia's. None better. Not even mixture Flake.I must just say, there is no taste of red Virginia. Which is ok with me. Not a fan of red Virginia. I also don't taste much burley. But I'm sure that's just me.
Drew Estate - Kentucky Fire Cured Sweets Ponies
Great Cross-Over Cigar
This Cigar is fantastic. I smoke pipes and cigars. The fired Kuntucky from St. Bruno or Orlic are some of my favorite pipe blends and this Cigar gives me all those notes plus a wonderful sweetness lacking in the pipe blends. Any Kuntucky smoker should love this Cigar. The tin art is very thematic. Will definitely get another tin.
AJ Fernandez - Last Call Maduro Chiquitas
The aged Maudro wrapper helps makes this one of the most interesting cigars I've had. Extremely smooth. Took about 25 minutes to smoke through. Flavor never turned even at the end. Will definitely get again. You can't beat it for its price point.
Pipe Tools & Supplies - Halcyon II Wax 1oz
This wax and its counter part is GREAT. I'm very surprised, I didn't expect it to do such a good job. You must try these waxes. You won't be sorry.
Comoy's - Cask No.7 3.5oz
I really like this tobacco. The coins are nice, moisture is perfect. There is a tiny bit of sweetness that creeps in on occasion. The Virginia is sweet grass and hay, the perique is subtle. Just a great smoke. I reach for it almost nightly. 2 coins. Fold and stuff. Try it. You won't be sorry. Also priced right. Taste is best of all other similar coins.
John Aylesbury - Dragon Flake 50g
There is no comparison
This tobacco is the best tasting surprise in the world of the Virginia tobacco. I bought some months ago on the review of Bremen pipe smoker. I was so surprised at how nice this tobacco smelled and tasted. Fold and stuff. 2 matches and your off. Burns very nice. I like to keep a bit of orange Gatorade next to me, for sweet sip now and then. You must try this tobacco. It's truly indescribable. Obviously there are countless great tobacco's out there. I personally love it. Its a nightly smoke for me.
