Really glad I found this nice an mild all day smoke, tastes great, great room note an cant beat the price, bought 2 oz. at first then after smoking a few bowls had to get a pound in my books 5 stars all the way..
It's definitely a big ashtray, and it comes with a cork knocker which you can attach or not as you prefer, but the finish on mine is terrible. I've seen examples of this that look glossy and green like the photo, but the one I got has a strange white... Read More-ish film all over it, making it look dull and dirty. It'll most definitely function well for ashtray purposes, but its not the pretty piece I envisioned for my smoking room; it won't be out in public. Read Less
I just tried my first bowl of what has become, already, one of my favorites. I had my eye on this blend for some time now, and I have been following all of the reviews on line. I smoked this in a MM CC bent Twain earlier this morning on my way to a l... Read Moreacrosse game. This blend is a solid 5 star deal. The tobacco aroma is just outstanding (or should I say. the casing and topping). It literally smells like you should eat it. I actually filled my pipe last night so it had a small amount of drying "in situ". When I fired it up, the "pick up truck" note was great. The tobacco had little to no bite to it, and the flavor profile although mostly consistent did change slightly several times. The smoke out put was heavy, and the after taste was very pleasant. This bowl survived one light (no char as I was driving) and never gave up. When done, there was a tiny bit of wet scraps at the bottom that were quickly dispatched by tapping the pipe in my palm. I have NO complaints on this product at all. I am going to order another pound as I know this will become another favorite in my rotation. I actually hit the 5 star rating but it only registered as a 4 1/2 for some reason. Read Less
This is certainly not for everyone but if you're open to new things, why not give it a try? True to Gawith Hoggarth fashion, the flakes were flawless with just the right amount of moisture, ready for rubbing or fold and stuff, though I recommend a fe...

Every puff seems to taste slightly different than the one before. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. I found this a pleasant break from an everyday smoke and I enjoyed it from start to finish. Read Less
This is a relatively strong blend that, to me at least, was overpowered by the burleys right from the start. I can taste a bit of the spice from the latakia, perique, and orientals, but to me the burleys gave it an acrid, sour flavor. If you do not l... Read Moreike the taste of straight burley, you may not like this blend. That being said, I believe this blend was very well done. The flavors are married together very well. This blend is just not for me. I will cellar it for a while and try again. Maybe my tastes will evolve enough to appreciate burley flavor more. Read Less
No es gran cosa en terminos de sabor, sin embargo, en terminos de mecanica es genial. Dobla facil, prende facil, y se mantiene prendido sin problemas aunque llega sobrecalentar la pipa. Sabe ligeramente a pan.
I picked this up on a whim because I generally enjoy C&D blends and I wanted something different. This fit the bill. It's an aromatic but not sickeningly so. It's a bourbon topped perique, burley and black cavendish blend in that order. At fi... Read Morerst light the perique really came through for me. It is quite peppery for the first third of the bowl. Next I caught the nuttiness of the burley. Quite enjoyable. A deep honey sweetness brought up the rear. The tin note was of bourbon (not whiskey but specifically bourbon) and raisins. I would catch hints of both faintly throughout the bowl. Sometimes blends will open up in different ways from bowl to bowl. Each bowl of this was spicy, then nutty, then sweet. I really liked looking forward to the changes. This also burned very well. Not sure if I had a relight the entire tin. I like to have a few aromatics in the rotation for blue moon scenarios and this will become one. A successful perique aromatic blending! I would have loved to give this a slightly higher rating but this smoke had an intense drying effect on my mouth. It didn't burn particularly hot and there was no tongue bite, but it certainly dried the mouth out an odd amount. I always had to have a glass of something cold accompanying Pennington Gap. Make it a Makers rocks and you've got a thematically enjoyable smoke session. Read Less
I had a bowlful last night with a friend. Id smoked 4 bowls through the day such as Kendal plug, Hal o the Wynd, Ramsgate, and St James flake. When I lit this up I was impressed. Really empressed. Even after my palate had been tested all day this one... Read More provided no bite with a nice aroma of the Liquor topping which smelled of rum. Good strength and smooth at the same time. My friend stated that it was a little rough when he first opened it after Christmas. He kept it in the original container and was at to me the right smoking moisture. I just made a pluc and stuffed and was able to smoke it all the way down with minimal re lights. He gifted me a few bowls worth but I will be making an 8 oz purchase soon. Read Less
The best medium bodied blend I have ever had! Smell faintly like Haddos Delight, tastes similar but with sweetness! So exotic, enchanting, delicious, a truly great all day smoke! A new favorite found! Will definitely order more! Can't say enough abou... Read Moret it! Read Less
Beautiful presentation, full bodied, Latakia heavy and complex- smoky and nutty. Lacks a bit of sweetness and somewhat drying but that's much more of a stylistic preference than ding on this superbly crafted blend
