    Tried my first bowl last night. Then smoked another. Got up early before work to smoke CH with a cup of coffee.

    Now, back home from work relaxing with some more CH.

    Glad I bought the 14 oz. tub

    I enjoy Carter Hall, although I'm a bit more fond of Prince Albert. Those are the only two OTC blends that I've tried.

    It's good stuff, and been around for a hundred years for a reason. Some prefer Russ O's Hearth and Home Chatham Manor, which I burn through, too. It is a match for Carter Hall because it uses higher quality leaf. Also, some detect a chemical taste to Carter Hall, although I can never taste it (but I'm a sloooow smoker).

    As a European, so please understand I have a bit of a different taste that you guys, I like Prince Albert better than Carter Hall by a long shot.

    Carter Hall became my go-to after getting frustrated with the song and dance of flakes.

    If you love Carter Hall, you may want to try C&D's Pegasus. Pegasus is similar to CH, but a step up in flavor and strength.

    I'd like to get some more Carter Hall. Once I learned there were premium pipe tobaccos in the world I just flat out left the "common" brands behind.

    I did get a sealed tub of Prince Albert when I ordered a pipe lot off of eBay. I didn't know it was coming with the pipes. Also, I got a sealed tin of Solani 660 silver with another lot I ordered. Nice surprises.

    @Ray47, Thanks for the info, just what I wanted to hear, I like CH no doubt bout it is a bit weak to my liking to remain in the rotation,very nice, easy and smooth tasting blend.

    Carter Hall is one of the grand old codger/over-the-counter blends that almost everyone can enjoy. If it gets a little routine, you can always jazz it up by mixing another blend or condimental leaf, and it is often good to go back to, as a change of pace. Along those lines, I like Iwan Ries Three Star Blue, Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic, and PC Midtown series Chestnut, a match to the discontinued Walnut, not to mention a variety of pouch blends, most recently the new Amphora Burley. No one will like every one of these, but codger blends have something for everyone.
