I just have to bump this thread. I saw a recent post by slowtri, and it reminded me of this awesome bit of reviewing. This led me to try several of the blends I love today. Maybe some of our newbies (at least newer than this newbie) will find it interesting and helpful.
If I forgot to say it before, thanks for this thread, Slowtri.
God I love Scottish Cake. So good, so balanced....
I just tried the Davidoff Medallions yesterday, and I'm super impressed. Felt wet in the tin but lit and smoked perfect - just crunch and stuff and light. I could use a little more sweetness, but this tobacco should be considered as a major player in a Va/Per list.
Just a heads up......I have a new VaPer blend coming my way. It is the Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club VR Blend from pipesandcigars.com. This was recommended to me a while back but I'll post up a review after I have a few bowls.
I thought PS LBF was blended with a cavendish as well. Can we truly consider it a VaPer? In my rotation, I consider it a "something else." It is good, but I don't know that I'd rate it with other VaPers. Of course, that is only $0.02 - and for that you get what you pay for it.
One I don't see on your list - or your list to try - is GL Pease Haddo's Delight. I am curious, for in some circles this is the bar for all other VaPers. I've had it, it isn't bad, an enjoyable smoke. But, I'd like to see it in this comparison you've done.
brilliant reviews slow tri i esspecially liked the filmore review but there is a snag to that i have a tin aging and im determined not to open it for at least a year and you have just made it very hard for me lol
