I have only been at this for a few weeks
but find myself reaching for English blends above all others.
I have fallen in love with White and Black.
Can anyone recommend other blends that share that same profile ?
Thanks in advance
This is my first attempt at a review and it was my first taste of pipe tobacco so please take that into consideration. Upon opening the tin I was presented with a plastic bag folded over itself containing long flakes of a dark brown color with streaks of a lighter brown woven in kind of like the...
I was just going through my collection of tins (REALLY working hard to procrastinate from working on my Exams) and I found that I can easily press in the top and bottom of my Solani Silver Flake tin.
Is this okay? Or should I open it and jar the flakes right away? I've never opened a Solani...
This was the second sample I've tried from Indigosmoke's (John's) very generous sampler. I smoked it just before dinner today, outside, in my Savinelli Saturnia bent pipe (it is now my favorite pipe for aromatics).
All I can say is, wow! If you like aromatics you must give this stuff a try...
I just smoked my first bowl of JKP. It was awesome. Kentucky is awesome!
Wanna taste Kentucky? One must only reach for the previously elusive and now readily available Jack Knife Plug and slice off a couple of flakes, and you'll be off to Kentucky nirvana. "Like smoking the a forest" to...
Ok this was a great suprise. I wasnt expecting much when I bought this but its an awsome latakia blend. Its a broken flake of high quality tobacco. The taste is out of this world. Not very heavy on the latakia IMO. Excellent change of pace from other balkan type blends or english blends. Im...
Here's what I have:
1 tin - Rattrays Accountant's Mixture (100g)
1 tin - Dan Tobacco Bill Bailey's Balkan Blend (50g)
1 tin - McClelland Dark Star (50g)
Looking for an equal trade (per gram) for some combination of the following:
-Solani 660 (Silver Flake)
-J.F. Germain Brown...
I recently went on TAD binge...
Im a big fan of Solani 633 and Solani Silver, so i picked up a tin of Aged Burley Flake (and gold label.. but thats another review)
Ive never really smoked a burley blend before aside from some aeros and stonehaven.
Right off the bat, the packaging is...
After smoking about 3 bowls each of the Solani line, here are my initial impressions.
yes, i just placed an order for 3 more tins of each.
I will put these away for atleast a year.
Lets begin wiht Solani Silver.
It only comes in 100g Tins, which holds a gold foil bag inside.
This was my first bowl of this blend, smoked in my Royal Danish Sovereign.
If the review sucks, I apologize.
I recieved this tin about a week ago, and opened it right away. It's a broken flake that I did not try to rub out (kinda oily), but will next time. Just to see if it smokes any...
