I love a good tin note. To me, it's an experience in itself. Here are a few of mine, in no particular order and irrespective of the blend type:
Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding

Pipeworks & Wilke No.10 and High Hat

Dunhill Standard Mixture

Robert McConnell's Original Oriental and Scottish Cake

Escudo

Stanwell Melange
So many more that I appreciate, but these are my favorites. What are yours?

Honestly ... I like them all.
However, Motzek Strang is among the best smells I've ever crossed in tobacco. (think Bear Claw pastry!) :P

Spot on cobguy the sweet smokey boozy smell of strang is wonderful, although I don't know what bear claw pastry is.
I'd definitely wear an aftershave that smells like WHB.

Inreally can't think of one I don't like, even the barnyardy Semois cranks my tractor. But, I guess my all time favorite smell is also McClelland's Virginias.

Nice cobguy thanks!

I have bought bread in France called pat de ourse ,bear's paw. The two together with a good coffee would be a fine breakfast. Followed by a bowl of strang of course.

I'll further the aroma of McClelland virginias. Stronger the better.
Also really knocked out by the note of Esoterica Stonehaven and Peacehaven.

Love McClelland Virginias, Sammy G's St James Flake, but my favorite tin note hands down is Solani 633.
