Kendal Bobs C Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco 50g Loose
Date Added: Tuesday 20 February, 2018
A high quality ready rubbed/broken flake, an intoxicating smell of milk chocolate greets you, smokes beautifully with no bite, no moisture in the bowl, a typical floral/soapy AK flake taste, reminicent of best brown, not sweet, but rich, further rubbing out may be needed. All in all a delight.

Kendal Brown Unscented Medium Flake Pipe Tobacco 50g Loose
Date Added: Friday 06 October, 2017
Trying this for the first time, I'm not getting any 'airborne' Lakeland taste for which I am thankful. This is one that GH have not 'polluted'. It's sweet and flavoursome but the described note is missing. Odd. But as taste is subjective not a concern. This took to the flame very well, a little too thick cut to fold and stuff, so a tad of rubbing out was called for. This is by now bowl number three. Cubing was a no-no, this tobacco wants love and attention not brutality with a blade. Heavy rubbing out (bowl 2) made it zip along and the bowl was gone, ashes to ashes style. Room note is negligible, the cat has not complained yet and he does, often. Luckily for me the wife has no sense of smell so even pure Latakia doesn't faze her. Leaving the room I smoke in and re-entering some ten minutes later I noted a pleasant round aroma of quality tobacco , no cigarette nastiness, just pipe smoke. I shall be buying more of this. The next bowl will be a mixing experiment, perhaps with a little Turkish/Izmir to see if I can brighten the taste, with a touch more acridity. An excellent GH product.

Kendal Coniston Cut Plug Pipe Tobacco 50g Loose
Date Added: Tuesday 12 September, 2017
Coniston Cut Plug In my opinion, this is the closest to Condor that we have. As a cut plug, it’s most similar to condor long cut (although technically a little shorter cut) but if you prefer Condor Ready Rubbed, it’s pretty easy to rub out to the same consistency… if you ask us nicely, we might even do it for you 😉. As for the taste, it shares Condor’s cool, medium bodied character and distinctively floral and woody notes on the palate. Even when we’re not struggling to get Condor, I often recommend this to Condor smokers who fancy a change… but not too much of a change!

King Edward Imperial Cigars - 1 x Pack of 5 cigars
Date Added: Wednesday 21 June, 2017
As we know these cigars are machine made. One of the issues I've found over many years of buying them, is occasionally you'll find a bad cigar in a batch. I've noticed this particularly with boxes of 50, but even some packets of five. Some are potholed with tiny holes by the machine, making them useless unless you can cut them down, but some have holes throughout the length of the cigar, meaning it has to be binned. Other than that, it's a very mild smoke and I'll continue to buy them here and overseas.

Kendal Bobs C Medium Flake Pipe Tobacco 100g Loose
Date Added: Saturday 11 March, 2017
Good Morning Pipe Friends. I have just experienced a bowl of Kendal Bob's Chocolate Flake. I thought it was a great deal for 100 grams. What a lovely smoke, very smooth, I can taste a slight Cocoa and Cream with a very light floral note here and there from the Latakia. It has a light sweetness and is a very cool and enjoyable smoke, no burn what so ever. The room note is very pleasant. It is not a full on aromatic I believe, but it does have all the essence of a very satisfying smoke. I tried it with my trusty Savinelli Super Dry. Very happy with this blend.

they arent a cuban, never will be, and never intended to be. As a cheap cigar bought at the price they are in the USA they are amazing value, and I always grab some while i'm over there. Over here however, once the taxman's been at the price tag... you might as well go buy some entry level cubans (jose piedra's for example) for the same money!
