Tabac Manil - La Brumeuse 3.5oz
Not great
being a big fan of pipe smoking, cigars and Belgium I really wanted to like this one, its not bad, but for the price nothing special in my humble opinion. Its like chopping up a cheap cigar that's been a little dried out and then smoking it in your pipe. I mean, there are even lots of chopped up very thick stems in this. if you want to pay a premium for that then this is your bag. could go on about its flavors and nuances but that's all you need to know.

Solani - X - Sweet Mystery 100g
Good but harsh
Nice aroma very wet out of tin from heavy syrupy casing. Strong coconut cream and berry aroma if that’s enjoyable to you. I like it. Need to dry out before using in my experience. It’s not smooth however. Smokes a little harsh. Otherwise I like the smell and taste. Maybe time could mellow it but for me it’s not amazing enough to store for years to find out. Good for what it is. Not great in my opinion. But one star reviews seem overly critical.

Dan Tobacco - Buddies 100g
Orange
Good orange flavors and aromas. Smooth no bite. Burns well. Only negative is price but Goes well cut/mixed with cheaper vanilla flavored tobaccos like Eileen's dream.
