I was a little disappointed as to the small size of the pipes, but as time went by, I found they conveniently disappeared in my pocket. The aroma and taste of the cherry blend brought me back 45 years when I smoked a pipe for a short time when I was a kid. This package gives you all that is needed to get started. Since then, I got a better pipe with a larger bowl for longer smoke times. Its a nice switch, now and then, from cigars.
Golden Ages review "1" meaning never again "10" meaning the best I ever had. I would say 6.50. Very smooth and cool I loved it. (Cap-Black Cherry) I would say okay, 3.00.
Ordered this for something different as I've wanted to try a pipe for a while, but never gotten one. The small size was a little sad as I only get about a 20 minute smoke from it, but it's something different from a cigar. The Cherry is not so great. It smells nice but I didn't like the taste as much. The Raliegh was better and had a nice smell and taste I felt, but the true winner to me was the Golden Age. It has a fruity flavor and is the one I have found myself going back to when I want to smoke my pipe.
Nice starter kit!
Just received my kit in the mail and I'm hooked!!! I'm a first time pipe smoker and I was hesitant at first to try it, but I'm glad I did :) .
Not bad for what it is. I mean, arguably, it's $20. On the other hand, the two corncob pipes are the ultra-cheapies made in China (in my case, both had wildly different bowl sizes, one being way WAY too small), the tobacco is okay OTC stuff, the cleaners are the hurts-to-handle-from-all-the-sharp-wire variety, and the multitool is useless once you spend 5 minutes on youtube learning how to pack your bowl by hand. So, don't expect anything amazing is all I'm saying.
Great starter. Not a big fan of the flavored tobacco but the price makes that a little bit of a moot point. It is a good starter kit for those who want something less drool inducing than a cigar for snow blowing the driveway.
very nice for the money its a great value one pipe worked great the other was a little rougher but ok and the tobacco was great
Very pleased with this pipe starter kit. After reading the reviews I expected the corn cob pipes to be really poor but I guess CI has upgraded them as the two I got were exactly alike and well made for the price. The tobaccos are well thought out as I got the Sir Walter Raleigh Classic Burly, Captain Black Cavendish Blend with Cherry, and the Sutliff Private Stock Golden Age Blend. A straight burly, a Cavendish Cherry aromatic, and a Blend which gave me a taste of three types of tobaccos all respectable. The pipe tool was heavier medal than I expected and I use it with every bowl. For the price I am very pleased and have enjoyed many hours of smoking pleasure and it helped me decide which tobaccos I wanted to explore more. For about $20 bucks a bargain, educational, and and flavorful experience for the money.
