    In the past week...Black Frigate from C&D. Recommended by Duane. Before joining this forum never heard much about it. Now it's one of my favorite top 10 tins!

    I also HIGHLY recommend Rattray's Bagpipers Dream!

    One blend that I have accumulated/smoked/loved is Low Country Cooper. Good thing it flies under the radar, as production seems to be low. Looking forward to seeing some more responses.

    My favorite underrated blend would have to be Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation 1855. A lovely Virginia blend!

    Hmmm. There are underrated blends and then there are blends that aren't that widely distributed although still known and appreciated. I don't know how to sort out which are which. I'd say maybe C&D Stratfordshire is somewhat underrated, although I think it is appreciated by many. I think that Nat Sherman 536 English is distinguished by being a real house blend (not just a renaming and relabeling) of a famous pipe shop in Manhattan, but it's not widely distributed. I think PC Hearth and Home Midtown non-aromatic Chestnut, a match to the discontinued Walnut, may be underrated. It kind of gets lost in the shuffle, but I think it is a fine blend at a good price.

    Comoy's of London Cask #7 Single Coin Sliced

    I don't really know who buys the Comoy's blends, but I somehow ended up with this tin of Cask #7. It's Virginia forward with Burley in the background and a nice light molasses topping. This is not a WOW blend, but its quality is undeniable, it has a natural tobacco taste and it is definitely underrated.

    I would repurchase and even try other blends in the line up.

    C&D Dark Burley.I use it to add a little spice,oomph,absorb PG on some blends and is also great on its own.
    Carter Hall + dark burley is quite good.

    I also recommend McClelland Balkan Blue (formerly Blue Mountain) You don't hear much about it, but it's a blend that wows me every time.

    I guess due to its complexity Chestnut doesn't get enough attention. But as you stated it is a fine underrated blend.

    SG Golden glow or medium flake, the name depends upon how you buy the tobacco. BBF and FVF get all the press and this virginia flies under the radar, it's not quite as complex as the other two but it is delightful.

    Everyone has their own set of standards and abilities.
    I like to read the opinions of others on the blends available and try to glean an understanding before I order.
    Some reviews or discussions of a blend or blends have influenced my purchases.
    Tastes change for me as I proceed and I try to understand this too.
    I have Chestnut, and I bought it right out of the shoot when it came out, BECAUSE is touted Latakia.
    One reviewer we know gave it 4*.
    I have Rattray's Marlin Flake too.
    The same reviewer gave IT 3*.
    I find this to be thought provoking, and ya, there's no comparison, but the ratings seem reversed.
    Marlin Flake was this year's flake of the year at SmokingPipes. I had already happened upon the blend when I made a transaction with seadogontheland, back in '14.
    I offer: Marlin Flake, as my answer.

    Newbroom: I rated them that way according to how they stack up against other blends in their respective genres. I don't see Marlin Flake and Chestnut as being in the same subset or genre, so, unlike you, I don't rate them against each other. I also don't rate according to my personal taste. If I did, a great many of my ratings would be different. So there are legitimate reasons why we don't see eye to eye on this, which is, of course, within our right to see these things in a different perspective.

    Also, Chestnut got 4 stars for how good a Match it is as well as how good it is on its own.

    A small, partial list of under rated blends: Moe's Confetti, Chestnut, Voodoo Queen, Rolando's Own, D&R VIP, Rotary Navy Cut, Savinelli 140, P&W #515, McClelland 2000, HU Makhuwa, HU Old Fredder's, G&H Bob's Chocolate Flake, Dan Tobacco St. Bernard Flake, C&D Yorktown, Villiger Virginia No. 444 (not sold in the USA), Watch City Deep Elem, Watch City Deluxe Crumb Cut, Watch City Old Dominion, among others, but these are what come to mind off the top of my head.

    I have been having great smokes with Sillem's Black! Never thought I ever would because it's a bizarre tobacco, but I'm enjoying the dickens out of it!

    Also Wessex Brown Virginia Flake... after a wonderful essay by Shane Ireland at spc a couple years back, this is still an outstanding tobacco for me!

    Wait!! Also Jack Lee Blends Beowulf!! FANTASTIC Tobacco! Very sad he's no longer making it.

    And the same reviewer gave EMP 2* The question is why? And here is the answer:

    I also don't rate according to my personal taste.

    I knew that your rates were objective rather than being subjective. Totally support the idea.

    My guess is that there are quite a few underrated blends out there, especially given the variance of taste.

    For me, Gawith & Hoggarth Dark Birsdeye is quite underrated. To my palate, it has everything I look for in a tobacco--full flavor, huge nic hit, and what's more, unlike many Gawith products, the fine shag cut makes it burn easily without fuss, even when moist. I don't place it quite as high as the GH ropes on my flavor scale, but it's close, and less fussy.

    McC Orient 996. While anyone I've talked to who has smoked it seems to like it, it's not a blend that gets too much attention. There's a lot of very good stuff going on in this one and the flavors all play together well.

    Peterson's Perfect Plug or 3Ps. I don't know if it's underrated, but it's probably under-appreciated. Being readily available in the US, while other plugs are hard to get, is probably a factor here.

    McClelland Jubilee. What? You've never heard of it? Exactly the point.

    This was one of the first blends I smoked. The local had it in stock and I liked the label. Subtle, but delicious when you have time to savor it.

    I still strongly believe that if anyone deserves to be out of stock it's SmokersHaven. How he still has Exotique on the shelf is beyond me. It's as fine a smoke as any I've ever had and there are MANY days I'd rate it as my favorite of all time. As I still willl likely purchase more, I suppose I am thankful it somehow remains under the radar.

    Shortcut to Mushrooms. I very seldom can handle Latakia anymore, but the combination of Lat and Cavendish is heavenly to me. I salivate for this one sometimes.

    I'll throw down with a sister blend to Jackswilling's choice of Low Country Cooper.

    I'm a big fan of Sykes Wilford and the late Craig Tarler's Low Country Black. It's Lat forward to be sure, but there's plenty of well chosen Virginias swirling around to make it more than an interesting smoke.

    Still, it's one of those blends that fly so far under the radar I wonder/worry about sustainability. (If nobody's talking then who's going to buy?)

    If these blends were art house films they'd be vanity movies produced by the Weinstein brothers. Oscar worthy and Oscar winners - but word of mouth will guarantee their financial success.

    I would also put Balkan Sasieni on that list. I remember quite a few derisive comments here a couple of years ago and couldn't, for the life of me, fathom why. It's a very enjoyable blend at a quite reasonable price.

    I've already commented once but I feel the need to say it again since I feel so strongly. The perfect blend - GL Pease Navigator

    Savinelli's Doblone d’Oro gets my vote

    I do also think GL Pease's Navigator is underrated, but as I only have 6 lbs of the stuff and need to buy more, I will have to put it in the overrated category until I am fully stocked.

    I really don't hear enough about Navigator or Sextant, both are superb blends, and I fear have gotten a bit lost in the shuffle of new entries.

    Both MM Dane and Pride. Both are great all day tobacco's with no tongue bite. Give some a try, it might be in your rotation in the future.

    KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

    I see lots of 'highly rated' blends on this 'underated' thread!

    Another I haven't seen mentioned is Brigham Klondike Gold. A lovely medium Virginia.

    Right now my most underrated tobaccos would be Uhle's Par Shooter and Rattray Brown Clunee.
    All of the Uhle aromatics are really tasty. The burleys they use as a base are terrific. Par Shooter tastes great, smokes easily to a dry ash, and the room note is marvelous.
    Finally got around to trying Brown Clunee as the final blend in the Marlin Flake/Old Gowrie/Hal o' the Wynd group. It's the sleeper of the bunch. Rich tasting and always a delight.
    Ask me next week about my most underrated tobaccos & the answer might be different. That's part of the fun!

    Relativity. Many of my favs are listed in both the underrated and overrated threads.

    Not enough people talk about the brilliance of Royal Yacht and Old Joe Krantz.

    Having just finished a bowl, I'm reminded how excellent GL Pease's Triple Play is. And it's a post 2007 blend at risk of going the way of the dinosaurs.

    G&H bright cr flake, I have no idea why people don't hoard this stuff, it is amazing
    McClellends Old world Cake, I never hear anyone mention it, I've loved it since my first bowl
    G&H happy brown bogie, this stuff is turning my pipe hobby into an addiction, the thought of finishing work and getting home to a full bowl of it runs through my mind
    Arango Balkan Supreme, I have no idea why nobody talks about this either, considering it was voted best blend in a blind review, I think because it's a readily available bulk for 35$ a pound people turn their noses up and run after stuff like Balkan Sobranie for 12$ and a one tin limit instead.
