Review: Lane Limited 125th Anniversary

To celebrate their 125th Anniversary, Lane Limited released this aptly named blend. It also happened to be their first VaPer blend ever. A combination of red and bright flue-cured tobaccos and a balanced amount of fermented Louisiana Perique for some zest.

Tin/Jar Note: Mainly honey, with some molasses and sweet tobacco notes in the background.

Visual: Mainly, lightly colored Virginias, with a small amount of darker Perique. It is a varied mixture of what looks like: crinkle cut, ribbon and large flakes of leaf.

Flavors: Toasted honey, hay and grains. Very light and balanced spice from the Perique.

Smoking Experience: This tobacco smoked very well. I only had to put a little extra flame to it 2-3 times and it burned thoroughly. No tongue bite, no gurgle and no overheating. Win-Win-Win.

Comparable Tobacco:

Conclusion: This is the best VaPer I have had yet. The body and flavor profile were exceptionally good and they held on through out, with no issues. What more can I say? I need more of this tobacco.

Rating: 5 Stars AKA "Stock Up" – Purchase multiple ounces for smoking and to age

It was that good? I am surprised since it is a Lane blend.

I thought it was fantastic. Loved it from start to finish.

Surprised because Lane blends aren't usually good? Or because it isn't a blend you think I would care for?

Interesting... I'vet never had anything from lane that I have really enjoyed. Sounds nice and I do enjoy a good VAPER. I'll keep a eye out for some.
