My first step in English blends May 27, 2017
By: Scot B.
New pipe smoker. After 8 weeks, 1 bowl/week, I felt ready to graduate from Lane 1Q to something a little more robust. Now I know a little more about true Latakia flavors. I loved that the tin note and the smoking flavor seemed to really match. Smoked... Read More
Great in the right pipe. May 26, 2017
By: Andrew H.
These McClelland reds such as Christmas Cheer and this one exhibit a richness not often found in modern straight Virginias. In my opinion it is a little monochromatic and linear in the flavor but it starts rich and ends richer. I found it really like... Read More
Heaven May 26, 2017

Was worried about this, but it sounded great. After proper prep and drying I loaded a rob roy cob. First minute of smoking was like a cigar and I was worried. It quickly settled into a faintly sweet, creamy and smooth smoke of the year. It is str... Read More
Ehh..It's ok... May 26, 2017
By: Jeremy R.
The description states that the antique leather is "considerably thicker" than the black version. Wow! I would hate to see the black version. I found the leather here to be very thin and it even feels like plastic to the touch. I may try to... Read More

Another great find from C&D. May 26, 2017
By: David R.
Big and Burley puts me in mind of Junk Yard Dawg (my current favorite blend), but sweeter and not as dark. Has substantial vitamin N. I find that I have gravitated to such mixtures that are no nonsense, rich and satisfying. Indeed, a great find.
My Daily Smoke May 26, 2017
By: Will J.
This blend is not intricate, and you won't find yourself sitting there looking for all the little nuances. That's alright, it's not meant to be. Not every smoke needs to be suprising and nuanced, and when you just want to sit and have a simple, delic... Read More
Simply Awesome! May 25, 2017
By: Eddie M.
Definitely one of my favorite aromatics! Burns well & flavor lasts through to the end. Smoked in a Savinelli 321.

enjoyable May 25, 2017
By: Arthur Z.
A little Perique and a good deal of Latakia are mixed with a touch of Irish Aromatic tobacco for an enjoyable, all day smoke- described almost accurate but to my test there is less latakika then aromatic,wich make it winner for me.TY!

Smooth & pleasant May 25, 2017
By: Michael C.
This aromatic is different from all others. It is a mild & sweet tobacco, but not overly sweet. The only other tobacco I have tried that is near to it is BCA. Great flavor, could easily be an all day smoke.
To each their own May 25, 2017
By: Timothy S.
Not a huge plug fan to begin with, too much work. But this was crazy. The absolute hardest to cut plug I have ever experienced. Wow. Hence the three stars. The leaf itself is 5 Stars. "Casing" is mentioned. I detected none. The tobacco its... Read More
Wasn't impressed May 25, 2017
By: Timothy S.
Disclaimer, the low rating is due to the marquee. I really expected more from Dunhill. It's not a bad tobacco - it's just bad for Dunhill. Very bland, not what I am used to with Virginia's. The strength, I didn't detect. Packs good, burns good.. real... Read More
