    Coming back around to some of Charles' samples finally! Decided to pull out the 3 Oaks Syrian. What a wonderful aroma in the bag. It actually does not smell like normal McKletchup blends! It's a wonderful campfire aroma with nice tangy pungency and leathers. This got me all excited! Fire...

    I haven't smoked very many pipe tobaccos. I find Dunhill Nightcap to be a somewhat stronger and more flavorful version of MacBaren Vintage Syrian. These are the only two English blends I've smoked, but with both I get burning wood notes through the nose, followed by a delicious coffee taste...
