I'm no help, but the rum and maple sounds tasty, as does irish cream

not sure how the flavors will translate to smoking though

fox and hound sounds gross, probably full of hair and stuff, I bet it's game-y too

I signed up for this offer a few weeks ago and received four 1.5 ounce pouches of tobacco from them - Fox & Hound, Irish Cream, Rum and Maple, and Almondine.

The Irish Cream is passable, haven't tried the Almondine yet, the Rum and Maple is pretty good, but the Fox & Hound I really enjoyed. I'm thinking of asking the owner of a local B&M to order some for me since I can't find a link on their website to order (how does the pointy-clicky thing work again? ).

I sent in my request about a week or 2 ago and have yet to receive. I hope I like some. There are sooooooo many blends out there its can really overwhelm a new smoker on what to choose. I have been happy with what I have right now though. Dan tobacco blue note and DaVinci also i got 2 oz of Lane Q1 as i was told to get it as a starter I like that blend too but I think I like the DaVinci most IDK really yet LOL. My stupid a$$ just broke the stem on my only pipe I got a replacement in the mail I hope it comes soon.

I submitted a request and had a non pipe smoking friend do the same last week

however, that friend may become a pipe smoking friend. when I smoke it around him he likes to comment, "maybe I should get a pipe, that smells niiice" (it was FVF)

Rum and maple is great with some root beer
Fox and Hound not too bad, kind of an English like blend
Almondine is similar to the Rum and maple
Irish Cream, is pretty good

They are not the best of quality tobaccos, but they are not that bad at the same time. The samples I got are 2 years old too.
