Good evening, fellow pipesters... I was wondering what your favorite VaPer was, if you were forced to name one, and just one.. Personally, I would have to go with the classic, Escudo, though I have yet to try many of the others in this genre. On deck, I have waiting tins of Filmore, Bayou Morning, and Three Friars, none of which have I yet to try. But for now, I am completely taken with Escudo. What about you guys -- which VaPer is your fave?

I really enjoy Beacon, formerly PCCA, now McClelland... I've only had the latter; the older stuff must be even more wonderful by now. Sweet and complex.

All McClelland or C&D made affairs in my case: Beacon; Fillmore; St. James Woods; and Blakeney's Best Bayou Slice.

Like the potato chip jingle, can't stop at one - simply not possible!

Solani 633 for a flake and Haddos for a loose cut though I can't smoke either after sensitizing myself to perique a few years ago.

I'd have to go against the grain and say G&H Louisiana Perique. Tried everything listed and this is my fav.

So far, I really like GLP Barbary Coast, Escudo, and well, I just love vapers. This is a dumb question, it's like asking me what my favorite ice cream is, all of them Very Happy

Bell's Three Nuns (picked up a tin from Switzerland) is tops. More available: Fillmore & Bayou Morning Flake are sheer delights.

VaPers are new blends to me, relatively speaking. I like Dunhill's Elizabethan Mixture (smoking some now) but I've found another like it and perhaps better: GLP Telegraph Hill.

If you like something with just a little more smokiness, though not strictly a VaPer, Piccadilly is essentially a VaPer with the addition of a little Latakia as a condiment just to add some body - one of my favorites.

PCCA / McClelland Beacon. I have several tins of Beacon and I will always buy more!
This is my favorite VaPer. I have to agree with the other who mentioned Solani 633, it is also a top notch VaPer.

Zombie thread!

For me, 2015 McClelland w/15% added perique is my VaPer of choice. In fact that's the next bowl I'll be having tonight..

Escudo, Sammy G's St James Flake, and C&D Bayou Morning also ring my bells. And they to me are more of "lighter" approach in varying degrees.

MacBaren's HH Acadian Perique also gets an honorable mention in the light and easy category.

Kick it up a notch or three, and GLP Haddos and Cool Hand Fluke (tiltjp) will light up your world.




Cheers,

RR

As someone who has suddenly developed regular tremendous cravings for Dunhill DeLuxe Navy rolls, I'm more and more curious about this "Escudo". I trust it's one of those things unavailable in Europe?

If I had to choose one favorite:
C&B Bayou Morning

Other favorite VaPers are:
DTM St. Bernard, GLP Telegraph Hill, G&H Louisiana Flake, Dunhill De Luxe Navy Rolls, Peter Heinrichs Curly Block, Motzeks Der 93er (a German local blend).

Iím afraid so. Which is odd, as Escudo is produced by the Scandinavian Tobacco Group in Denmark.
Iím told there is a similar blend called My Own Blend "Big Coin". It is available via the Danish Pipe Shop in Copenhagen. But I havenít tried it yet.
