Top 3 You want to try Pipe Edition

HaybletHayblet Posts: 2,429 ✭✭✭
Just like the Cigar one in the Rating section I thought I would get the ball rolling here, this can be whatever ya want it to be, B&M exclusive blends or other exclusive blends, or something you found in yer great great Grandfather's Military trunk that you wish they still made today? Rambeling aside I'll get the ball rolling, even though like most I sure have more than 3

The infamous **** looking pic Joe posted of Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish X (tho I do have this sitting in a cart...)

So after some thinking... Davidoff Red Flake/Red Mixture/Scottish Mixture
McClelland's Dominican Glory Maduro (yes Maduro leaf in the mix omnomnom)
Robert Lewis 123 Mix

I don't intend this post to turn into a MaW thread, but if it does so be it, just thought it could be a way to share new blends n stuff

    The Dominican glory maduro is #1 on my list as well. I'd love to get my hands on the Frog Morton stuff as well. I've been smokingt aromatics mostly, but I'd like to branch out.

    Spencer I need your address. I've got some Dominican Glory for you both. Probably enough for 2-3 pipe loads.

    Damn Joe, that's awesome! Gotta be something you're looking for I can return the favor with.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    We're good. The tin was a gift and I don't particularly enjoy it, so if I can pass it along then so much the better.

    I have heard nothing but good about holiday/winter blends. I didn't start smoking a pipe until very recently, but I remember going into a shop in Gatlinburg, TN last Christmas and the woman that owned it was smoking her own winter blend... and the aroma was unreal. She told me that she mixes her own blend each winter, and that it is usually one of her best sellers.

    The holiday blends made by the shop are usually fantastic and very popular. I love aromatics and what I am finding is they do not age well like non aromatics. They seem to lose their flavor over time. I am trying to smoke up my aromatics that are open. I think the sealed tins are fine until you open them.

    Todd and Spencer...I finally got my sh*t together and mailed off your samples of Dom Glory. Hope you guys enjoy.

    Just for just found this old thread and thought I’d revive it. I love learning about other people’s tastes and likes, and have found many great cigars and pipe blends that I would have never tried if not for threads like this one

    Esoterica...any/all

    Your recommendation or favorite blend. I always want to try new blends things that I would normally not think of if it were not suggested by someone.

    I guess in so the benefits of being new to pipes is that it will take me years just to get through the easily available blends.  Having said that, is love to have a vertical tasting of all the Frog Morton blends.

    I have been getting into my pipes more and more. My top three to try are:
    Dunhill Nightcap
    Anything by Drew Estates 
    Cornell & Diehl haunted bookshop (I’ve tried a sample of it and really want to try it again).
    My unicorn is a cherry aromatic that my Great Uncle used to smoke. I have no idea what it was but I vividly recall the smell and can see him sittig next to his pool in Florida while we were swimming.

    or Middleton, very popular cherry in the 60's and 70's.

    This would have been late 80s/early 90s when we would see him.

    The Middleton was still around, as were the Prince Alberts.  Could have been any, I just remember it seemed a lot of folks liked the Middleton, although I didn't, but then Cherry tobacco's never been my thing.
