I decided to try 1/2 bowl of Lane 1-Q for the first time in the Vauen Olaf bent egg while putting out the recycling and garbage for pickup. Wow ! In a word Superb ! This is what I have been looking for in a mild subtle flavorful tobacco. I can see why it is purportedly the number one selling bulk tobacco. Mild, no bite, flavorful, cool, pipe barely gets warm, flavor throughout. The first taste I noticed was the tea and honey of the virginia and it tasted exactly like Newminster 400 Navy Flake and was constant in the background throughout the entire smoke. Then I tasted a very subtle sweet caramel, chocolate, molasses rotating throughout. I didn't taste Vanilla per se as Vanilla but that may have been mild sweetness in the background. I would recommend this for all beginners to try since the flavors are so very subtle not overpowering. It also had a slight smoky campfire taste as well. I really like this but the downside is I enjoyed it too much and zoned out concentrating only on smoking it. This too will be a staple tobacco for me along with the Newminster 400 Navy Flake. I will be ordering more when this runs low.

So Lane HS3 is my golden "Clay King"???
Do you think the Clay King 👑 will miss his pipes and baccy during Stoptober next month???
I'd say yay to both. 😁

I think you've found the Clay King his golden "Clay King":)
But it's still a commercially available blend, made for the public. The King always has his own armor, made for him alone and always a little more special than the others.

@Chaukisch I was looking for a tobacco that meets the colour, blend & strength of my imagined "Clay King 👑" blend:)
I think the Lane HS-3 sounds like the real "Clay King 👑".

@Chaukisch Do you think Samuel Gawith Black Forest meets the "Clay King" criteria?
I think I've found another real life "Clay King":)

You might be right, that really sounds delicious. I'm laughing at the picture they used - Place the sick guy on the tin lid almost right in the middle of the photo, that sure looks good. :ROFLMAO:

OT:
Puffing one of the last fillings of random brick in my little cob.

@Chaukisch UK tobacco packaging has become too PC these days; I notice American blends aren't plastered with such extreme health warnings...
Hope we get to see your old clay again soon...
I would swap the baccy into a leather tobacco pouch or antique jar myself.
Is the SG Black Forest another real life "Clay King" then?
Wearing my Redcoat while watching the Queen's funeral procession. If I was there I'd fit right in:)
