W.Ø. Larsen Old Fashioned Pipe Tobacco Review

Do you consider the term "Old Fashioned" to be positive or negative? I can certainly think of many positive connotations for the term Old Fashioned, and W.Ø.

McClelland Bombay Extra Personal Reserve

Latakia, Perique and Virginia tobaccos! Hmmm …. what an interesting combination that sounds like! And there’s Turkish Orientals in there too! I bought a tin of McClelland’s Bombay Extra Personal Reserve on the recommendation of a friend that just loves Latakia. Interestingly, while I find it to be quite an enjoyable smoke, it is not […]

Cornell & Diehl Kajun Kake Pipe Tobacco Review

Cornell & Diehl’s Kajun Kake is aptly named. It has Perique Tobacco, hence "Kajun" and it is a crumble cake cut, therefore, "Kake". We have another reason for the word "Kake", as it is a mildly sweet blend with its’ main component being Red Virginia Cavendish. When you open the tin you see a solid, […]

Samuel Gawith Bracken Flake Pipe Tobacco Review

Samuel Gawith Bracken Flake may have ruined me for all other pipe tobaccos. You better make sure you are sitting down when you smoke this one! You can even catch a buzz just from the tin aroma. The tin aroma reminds me of Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Tequila. It is a rich sipping […]

Samuel Gawith Commonwealth Pipe Tobacco Review

I’ve heard of aged tobacco, but 200 years old is really getting up there. Ok, the tobacco isn’t really that old, but Samuel Gawith’s Commonwealth Mixture is a Bicentenarian – meaning this pipe tobacco blend has been around for 200 years. I’m not surprised it’s lasted that long as it is one of the best […]

If you’re feeling nostalgic or old-fashioned, then pull out a tin of Mac Baren Club Blend.
