    Haddos ages very nicely. Good decision!

    A great smoke aged, or right out of the tin, I don't think this one ever let me down

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    One of the truly great, legendary blends. And among the best in current production.

    Great blend I just can't smoke much of it and have to be careful. It likes to mess me up, lol.

    agree brothers, I enjoy 1st thing in AM with good Cuban coffee and then again at the end of my day with Turkish coffee - great blend all hail G.L. Pease

    @bootlegbonvivant , yeah I made the mistake of having my very 1st smoke of this in a large pipe, could not feel legs afterwards, hehe So just enough in the AM really kick starts my day...then double that at the end of my day puts me into full RnR mode

    First time I smoked it, was while waiting in line to pick up the kids from school. When I dropped out of the van, I almost dropped to the ground

    *edited to add* and that sit was like 40 minutes, so I put it in a large pipe.

    I have a tin unopened in line and look forward to giving it a little more age. This thread is good news.

    One of my top choices - a desert island tobacco.
    For me this could be an everyday, all day smoke.
    First preference is in a large WDC Wellington for a long, sumptuous smoke. Second choice is in a rusticated Wengholt (Preben Holm) Dublin with a generous conical bowl.

    How does the newer production hold up with the original Haddo’s?
    It’s a given that it won’t have the benefit of 10-15 years of aging; I’m just curious about its current quality.
    Greg certainly learned a lot through his various Perique blends during the F&P days, and hit a home run with Haddo’s Delight.

    I have not yet smoked a blend that changes as radically with age as Haddos. Delicous stuff, even if some like it fresh better.

    Haddo's is one of those blends that smokes beautifully all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. In face the 2nd half of the bowl is my favorite part. Doesn't get strong or bite you...it just tastes better and better until the bowl is gone...and that is a fresh tin. I would love to try some with some age on it.

    Haddo's is, without a doubt, one of my top five blends. I like it a little better with age, which smooths it out a bit and takes off the rough edge that I feel when smoking it fresh. I only wish I had found it earlier so that I would have more aged tins of it.

    I smoked a tin of it a year or so ago, but found it to be average in my opinion. I was fortunate enough to buy a few tins at the time, and have them buried somewhere in my stash. Interested in seeing how I like the aged stuff.

    I've never tasted another blend that compares to Haddo's.

    There is something about it that is so unique to my tastes which keeps it as a regular staple for me. I've tried it aged, by accident once, and it was still tasty. But for me, the variation that I get in flavour and sensation from a fresh tin is what keeps me interested.

    I guess contrary to Sable, I like that "rough edge" but would instead classify it as a kind of spice rather than roughness. It's something interesting to me that makes me perk up every so often during a bowl, and it somehow brings out different flavours for me during those moments. The stuff is like a twisting mystery to me, and that is why I enjoy it so much. It is rare (in the grand scheme of offerings) for me to experience such variation in a blend. Amazing stuff.

    It is one of those blends where I think it is a pity that in the long run, it will either become very expensive or non-existant... so I've stockpiled it. I've read a bit about how to "un-age" tobacco, but it is a bit of a hassle for my liking. I'll be truly depressed if the fresh stuff becomes a memory. The idea of toning down that spice and marrying it with everything else really brings me down... but not enough that I don't make sure I've got some in the future.

    Long live Haddo's! What a curious, amazing blend of our times... It's what originally got me on to other Pease blends, but still remains my favourite of his line.

    I smoke Haddo’s more often than any other blend. GL Pease create a masterpiece in this one.

    Unadoptedlamp, if you want fresh Haddos, I'll gladly trade you some for that nasty old stuff you have.

    My biggest problem is keeping enough Haddos around to actually get a lot of age on it. My oldest is at about five years, but only a few tins have remained unopened. I will buy ten at a time, but then I go coo coo and end up burning through it like crazy. I’m sure with age, I will be unable to control myself even further.

    This sounds like a must try. Is it hard to come by?

    No. It's not unobtainium, it's simply a good blend. And it's one that is grandfathered in under the FDA rules. It's god a bit of a boozy topping that works well with the components. It's good fresh and it ages well.

    Haddo's is very good stuff. It became, and continues to be a regular favorite, since I discovered it about 15 years ago. I have never aged it much, the oldest I've smoked is about 2yrs old and it was amazing. Good stuff fresh too!

    Having sampled a tin which dated to the blend’s infancy, it might be nice to try some with moderate 3-5 year aging.
