    Pipe Lighter - Leads and Recommendations

    Her expression at 0:22 won me over, and I never looked back. Old Boy is the best. That being said, it is a bit small-in-the-hand. Recently buying an IM Corona PipeMaster, however to accompany it.

    Best Peach?

    Looking for a Peach aromatic that doesn't fade. Sutliff's Peaches & Cream is probably the best everyday, or Taste of Summer Private Stock. I have some 2010 Peterson Summertime that's probably the best rarity, and I really like it, but it's almost gone now. Most of the others, including...

    Pipe Tobacco

    Yes! It's a lot like Sutliff's Irish Creme however there's a notable nutty/whiskey taste. Think a vanilla Christmas Cookie with the tip dunked in whiskey. Sutliff Private Stock is my favorite. Trying to collect all of them.

    Sutliff Private Stock Moroccan Spice

    You're right. I think Barbados Plantation is QAR and Molto Dolce is Creme Brulee, but there's something else about both in the Private Stock versions that's a little different. Not sure if it's Mandella Effect or the illusion I'm opening a tin instead of a baggie, but the Private Stock...

    Sutliff Private Stock: Dark & Silky review

    Always a fan of Sutliff's Private Stock line (though usually packaged like potato chips with 1/2 air), Dark & Silky does not disappoint. Cracking open the pop-top can wafts very wet, awkward cuts of what smells like dark-chocolate cake right from a suburbia-chain restaurant's...

    Sutliff Private Stock Moroccan Spice

    "Black Cavendish, Aged Virginias and White Burley are blended together in a unique fashion, topped with spices." - Sutliff I'm almost always a fan of Sutliff Private Stock deliveries, usually unique, high quality, and well-crafted; this is no exception. Cracking the can greets with chocolate...

    Let’s talk about Boswell’s Northwoods

    Northwoods has a smokey, campfire taste to it with some "Balkan" similarities. Finishes with what seems to me to be S'Mores, which is unusual but tasty. Rainy, Washington State mountain dankness. Recommended on a cold night, but not an all-day smoke. Very, very good.

    Flavored Tobaccos for a New Smoker?

    Woops, I meant to say Sutliff Queen Anne's Revenge, not Voodoo. Stupid Mandela Effect..

    Savinelli - Doblone d'Oro Review

    I heard this was a complex blend, so I gave it a try and bought a tin. Cracking it open it smells sweet like honey and orange juice in equal portions. Inside are curled medallions stuffed inside, hence the "Gold Doubloons" or "Gold Coins" of the name. These coins disintegrate by finger...

    Cornell & Diehl, Captain Earle's Ten Russians Review

    Having tried Pirate Kake, and being a new fan of Latakias, I ordered the "beast" of Captain Earle's Ten Russians. Many reviews have scared me of this blend and I broke off chunks cautiously as it reeked as a true Lat-bomb, ruining fingers, pungent and alluring, but then again, it's an acquired...

    Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake (Sea Scoundrels) Review

    I was excited at trying a true "Lat Bomb", that is, something so skunky with Latakia, that it would be disconcertingly bold. Everyone on forums around announced this would be the big bad daddy at 75% Lat, truly intense an experience. I hear there's an 80% out there.. 10 Russians I think...

    Scandinavian Tobacco Group: C'Est La Vie Creme Caramel Review

    Well, then! Another winner for aromatic fans here. Smells like Häagen-Dazs Salted-Caramel ice cream all melted. Lights-up quickly enough and has a buttery, warm flavor, not unlike eating a Milky Way candy bar (the US variety), actually maybe 2 of them. I think that a newbie to pipe smoking...

    C'Est La Vie Chocolate Eclair - Scandinavian Tobacco Group Review

    Well this is a surprise! Rather inexpensive bid at CigarBid website, I got this pack pretty quickly. Strong scent of thick chocolate smells almost cheap and I was hesitant so I stuffed it in my pipe tobacco fridge/humidor by New Air and let it set for a few months. Stuffing into my...
