This sampler pack is a great entry point into the world of pipe smoking. It's tough for a new smoker to know where to start and, taking the advice of seasoned smokers, I bought this sampler. I'm glad I did. I personally have enjoyed the Kentucky and Burley, though all the tobaccos are unique and give a very enjoyable smoke. Amphora knocked it out of the park with these blends and, for the price, this sampler pack is a great value for new and seasoned smokers alike.
I hadn't smoked a pipe for years. I could remember always liking amphora tobaccos. I was very impressed with the quality and with the flavor of the tobacco blends. I would definitely recommend this to any pipe enthusiast who is not totally against prepackaged pipe tobacco.
Easy to open. Great aromas. easy to load and light, burned well and each had a unique and very pleasant taste.
All opinions vary Here are mine: The Virginia blend like smoking a cigarette The burly blend is not bad nutty The Black Cavendish my second favorite of all the Kentucky I just really enjoy it to my surprise I will get more. Not onto the English blend I can't give a good opinion on it. I couldn't finish the first bowl, I will try again, but I would like to know, is this a good English blend? When i opened the back up I was reminded of a horse barn, is this normal? I will give it another go in an old Dr. Grabow pipe but overall this is a good way to try different types of tobacco's.
I bought this to explore some of the other flavors that have been unavailable for awhile. I am familiar with the Black cavendish (my favorite), but haven't been able to find it or the others for some time. The Virginia blend and the Burley were surprisingly good. The English blend I will need to mix with another blend to my own taste. The Kentucky blend is just ok, nothing spectacular here. The Burley, and Virginia are both more coarsely cut and take a little more care when packing the briar. All in all, a good mix of variety.
