Review: Cornell & Diehl Odessa 968

Cavendish cut burley, Turkish, Latakia and Perique, Odessa 968 is supposed to be similar to the old Balkan Sobranie White. I’ve never had that, so I can’t contest to that fact. But, I will see how it stacks up to what I have had.

Group Review: CAO Flathead Steel Horse

Apparently, CAO got a LOT of comments about the fact that their Flathead line (released in 2014) did not have a motorcycle themed option. Well, CAO obviously heard that complaint and they have made that option for those CAO smoking bikers out there.

Review: Tsuge Summer Daydream

Released at the same time as the God Series, which is a non-aromatic lineup, but those are for another review. It's still summer down here, so i am going to see how this tobacco holds up.…

Review: GL Pease Laurel Heights

GL Pease Laurel Heights is a Virginia/Latakia blend. With mostly Virginias, it should be a milder and naturally sweet blend. And with a very small amount of Latakia, that shouldn’t be very perceptible.

Review: Cornell & Diehl Plantation Evening

Plantation Evening is marketed as a light blend of tobaccos, offering a middle-of-the-road English style blend. The name sounds as though it should be great to have on the porch some evening. So, this evening I will see how it lives up.
