    • Too bad Samuel Gawith tobaccos are not currently available in bulk. I am sure Squadron Leader, Full Virginia Flake, and 1792 would be in the running for top 20 orders. It has been too long since I had Cob Plug in my pipes!

    • Andrew W on October 17, 2014
    • Hi Tim, thanks for commenting! I'm a huge fan of SG blends too, loving all three of those mentioned. St. James Flake might be my favorite though. As for the bulk, we did have quite a few Sam Gawith bulk blends in stock a while back. In fact, there's still some Westmorland bulk up on the site now if you're interested. It's 20% off!

    • Lane BCA has a room note of "1" but Nightcap is "4"??!! HUH???

    • Andrew W on November 1, 2014
    • Hey CrazyTommy, good question. We rate our room notes sort of like, basing it on how your smoke smells to those around you -- with 1 being the most pleasant and 5 being the least pleasant. So since BCA is a Cavendish aromatic, the average smoker (and all those around him/her) will probably find the room note much more enjoyable than Latakia-heavy Nightcap. Hope that helps!

    • Jim on November 1, 2014
    • Can one of you please explain your tobacco rating system -- Strength (of nicotine? of what?), Taste (how powerful it is? how pleasant?) Room Note (to the smoker? to other smokers in the room? to nonsmokers in the room?) -- thanks!

    • Andrew W on November 1, 2014
    • Hey Jim, sure I can explain. So we generally measure strength based on the nicotine presence and the body of the smoke. Taste is both the power and fullness of the flavor, and the room note is based on the pleasantness or intensity of the odor to everyone else in the room (be they smokers or nonsmokers). Hope that helps! If it's still unclear, you can check out Jeremy's recent post on "how to use the tobacco locator" for a quick rundown of the system we use. Here's the url:

    • I can't believe Amphora Red did not make the top 10 aromatics.

    • Dennis Hampton on October 26, 2017

    • I'm surprised no McClelland bulk made the list. Are those not very popular when compared to their tin offerings?

    • Adam O'Neill on November 28, 2017
    • @Kronlebp This list is due to be updated soon, and I suspect we'll see some more McClelland this time.

    • My lady and I travel extensively and i smoke a pipe and usually its Lane BCA Cavendish, bought in bulk. But I recently learned from her that the smoke when we are confined to a closed environment it burns her nose and throat. I'm want to change to a more room friendly Cavendish that can be bought in bulk. Any suggestions?

    • David A Tillery on April 24, 2018
    • Room friendly Cavendish

    • Paul Gardner on July 10, 2018
    • I'm just getting back to smoking a pipe after a few decades fling with cigars. I wanted something reminiscent of the old Bond Street, and have just tried the 1-Q blend. I'm very happy with this tobacco. It's mild, no bite, and a pleasant enough aroma that my wife doesn't relegate me to the garage to smoke anymore. That in itself is a testament to it's quality.
