I got the bright idea back in the fall of smoking three codger blends in cobs all winter, trying to pick a fave. The three blends are Prince Albert, Carter Hall and Granger. I almost always smoke outdoors, since I'm lucky enough to have many nearby spots perfectly suited to the solitude of a good smoke. With two months of Winter left, I can report that PA remains my fave, but the other two are fine, and I would be reluctant to get too fussy about rank ordering. I find PA's slight cocoa note to my liking. CH is very easy to get along with. Granger has a nice, old-timey quality, though the cube cut bits sometimes want to jump out of my bowl. The G aroma and taste sometimes reminds me of Plumcake, though not as soft. I'd say all three blends prefer the venue of a well-cared-for MM. All of them readily deliver one-match smokes. I can pay more for a tasty tobak, but etceycetc. I wouldn't want people to think the old fella has wasted his time this Winter.
