    Howdy! I was recently gifted a Pipe and decided to give it a try. I watched a LOT of videos and bought a couple accessories. I decided to start with a couple aromatics as that seemed to be where folks start. My initial order was some Lane Limited 1-Q, some Lane Limited RLP-6 & H. Sutliff...

    I've just started smoking pipe tobacco and I'm curious about three blends in particular: dunhill nightcap, dunhill my mixture 965, and mcclelland's frog morton cellar. What do these taste like in comparison to the john patton bulk latakia junction blend (if you've ever had it)? The latakia...

    My first tea review! Here goes nothing. Tea: Harney and Sons English Breakfast Pairing: An aged English H&S English breakfast is a fantastic black tea. I’ve always thought black teas go exceedingly well with latakia blends and blends that feature prominent use of condiment tobaccos like...

    I'm finally coming around to latakia blends I think, and I'd like to find a good straight-up full "English" blend. The only Balkan I've tried (Britt's Balkan) doesn't do it for me. GL Pease Westminster was too one dimensional for me back when I tried it. Squadron Leader is great but the...

    So I just got the new smokingpipes.com newsletter and they are talking about Sutliff Private Stock: St. George's Blend. I looked it up and no one seems to have a review on it. It says that it's an Aero but when I look on the Altadis website (that's who really makes it), they say that it's an...

    Peaty Islay scotch (Laphroaig) + A nice English tobacco (Gordon Pym) = Smokey bliss. Discuss.

    One of the first tins I bought was GLP Westminster. This was before I could participate in the newbie sampler trade and just couldn't wait to try this exotic style of tobacco called "English". I popped the tin and was hit in the face by the smokiness. It was a sort of sharp smokiness that was...

    I have yet to be disappointed by a Stokkebye tobacco. Commander Quan sent me a sample of this in my blind taste test, and I really liked it then. I just had 4 oz. show up yesterday from P & C and am smoking like a chimney. English Luxury is a pretty tobacco, fairly broad cut with golds...

    I was going to smoke LBF this morning but absolutely had a hankerin' for an english. Luckily, thanks Nate, I had a sample of English Luxury. Yeah, not actually one of the Luxury series but it still has it in the name! The tobacco has very nice vibrant colors in the bag. Crisp looking light...

    Got me a little of this from WyoBob last night in the mail. The bag got stuck to the adhesive of the shipping box and pulled a hole open. So I had to get this jarred up immediately. Hey, why not load a pipe for the morning while I'm at it? Interesting McClelland here. There isn't that...

    This ends the PS reviews I had already written in a Word doc on my desktop. I have some notes on Balkan Supreme I will also post when I get them re-worded (if you all knew me off the boards you would find I cuss like a sailor). Description In the tin: Mild and spicy. I enjoy the aroma of...

    I know, I'm being a P.S. review whore right now. PS was what really introduced me to the wonderful world of pipe tobacco so I figure I owe it to them by writing reviews (and to get myself a stylish icon :) ) Description In the tin: Smooth with a spicy finish. I enjoy the aroma of this one...

    Now I am piling on. I already had 1 Stokkebye review, so I figured I would put these in as well. Description In the tin The only thing I can smell is the Latakia. In the other Stokkebye English blends I can smell the orientals but this one is true to its description. In the pipe It packs...

    Picked this up a week or two ago. Figured I'd give it a try. When I opened the tin I got a definite aroma of chocolate. Of course, I was looking for it as well. Then the latakia/english part came forward. I can never remember which latakia is which but one is a lighter, bighter more smokey...

    Owaindave hooked me up with some samples in a recent trade. Now I am not much of a topping kind of guy but I must say this is a decent tasting tobacco and the chocolate topping was just another note in what was a decent English tasting blend and it has me wanting to go down this road a bit more...

    I've tried several blends including Smyphany, light English, and black rasberry. But my favorite is the straight English. What other tobaccos should I try that are more in line with the English? The sweet smell of some of the tobaccos does not agree with me. :twitch:

    One of the English blends I have fallen in love with is the Stokkebye Imperial English. That said, I can't find it anywhere online (got it from a local shop that had some). Does anyone know if the Stokkebye Proper English replaced it? I do like the Luxury as well, but it does have more...

    im no english major, but in school we were told that if a word starts with a consinent, you put an A before it. i.e. "i want a pickle" if it starts with a vowel, you use AN, i.e. "im eating an apple" as i remember it, we were never told that this was a rule of thumb, it was told to us that...

    Many posts have talked about the pipe choosing the tobacco. Well here is my experience. I purchased a new pipe to dedicate to Virginias. I already had one pipe that I had dedicated to English blends. Well, the pipe to be dedicated to Virginias seemed to dislike Virginias. I then decided that I...

    Hi there. I've recently started smoking pipes again after a break of 20 years on cigarettes. Is it me or do your taste buds change as you get older as tobacco brands I smoked 20 years ago just don't taste the same. Anyway, I digress. I am having trouble trying to find a certain type of tobacco...
