    I have been looking at some pipes I would like my wife to buy me for our fifth year anniversary (the "wooden" year). I have narrowed my search to three pipes from three different companies. My question is, of the three pipe manufacturers listed below, which is the higher quality brand (generally...

    Rattray's Accountant's Mixture is composed of Virginias, unsweetened black cavendish and Latakia. Notice that unlike most English blends, it contains no Orientals, or what we used to refer to as Turkish tobacco. Orientals are quite flavourful, but not high in nicotine. They add spice to the...

    Picked this up recently from rlaliberty. Really glad I did. Decided to give it a shot in my new '66 Duhill pot I picked up from MadHatter! Apparently Ryan bought this in '09 so it's got some age on it. Open the tin and the aromas are lovely. Sweet virginias and tangy latakia. The aromas...

    After the Peterson aro half bowl, (didn't like it enough to finish) I decided I needed a good virginia smoke. So i broke out my 5 year old HOTW. I picked this up from fleabay. What a find! $26 per tin! You always hear of folks talking about this but until you smoke a bowl you really don't...

    Figured I'd slide a quicky in here since I got to work a little early. Popped a jar of Black Mallory I'd bought from another BOTL here on the forum. Very nice tobacco here. Opening, I can smell leather and just a touch of that "ketchup/barbeque sauce" aroma that comes with some english's...

    Picked up a sample of this from Brian (sounds7). Figured we'd give a half a bowl a shot as I'm still breaking in my new Neerups. First off this stuff is really dark. I try not to read reviews before I review a new blend so I had no idea what to expect. I'm going to give you the untainted...

    I would like to preface this with saying at first I was not all that into straight Virginia until I was introduced to FVF. That has been my yard stick and thus far everything has fallen far short, everything until Hal O' The Wynd. It isn't that it's better than FVF it's that it's different in a...

    An aptly named blend, there could not be. Black stoved VA in varying sizes, from chunks to ribbons, fill the tin. The tin-aroma is sweet, almost aromatic-like, but really more like a cavendishy sweet smell. Tin contents are deceptively "wet", that is, it seems moister than it really is. I find a...

    Hello.es! This is my first proper pipe tobacco review here, so I've been smoking pipes for about a year now. Just trying out blends, learning how to pack, clean, light and smoke a pipe. I have four pipes, two for experimentation and aromatics. The other two are both peterson 303 system...

    Smoked the SG Full Virginia last night, pretty good a little bitter toward the end, a little odd but good. And the Rattray's MF this am with my coffee, very good as well, a little on the mild side. I can see why you see VA Blends as a straight VA can be a little on the bland side, not in a bad...

    Who among you lives for MF? Who lists it as their favorite pipe tobacco, bar none? Anyone? I have a reason for asking which I shall reveal once I determine who the poster boy for MF is. ;)

    Just finished smoking some Old Gowrie, Very nice smooth and mild. A lot nicer than that CB I have been smoking. One problem was quite a bit of moisture in the pipe towards the end. Could not keep it lit. Should I have left the tobacco out for a while to dry maybe that would have helped? Anyone...

    Does anyone have one of these? If so, what do you think?

    Ok, supposedly it's been discussed before. K&K insists there is perique in Hal O' The Wynd. I've never tasted it in the original blends and I don't taste it now. But perique in Brown Clunee, Black Virginia and Dark Fragrant? I don't think so! Anyone smoke those since they started being made...

    Finally cleaned out the rotation enough to justify opening a tin of the RRR. This was a 100g tin, that I have had in the cellar for about 6 months. First impression - the tin was really full. Buying flakes I had gotten used to the look of a 1/2 full tin. Nice fine ribbon cut, moisture almost...

    I got really lucky Friday and stopped by a local shop and picked up a tin of Rattray's Black Mallory. This shop looked like they hadn't ordered new inventory since the late 80s. The US distributor on the back was James B Russell, which was an older distributor. When I opened the tin (I figured...
