1-Q is a blend of golden Virginia and black Cavendishes and a smooth flavor with an aroma that everyone loves. This mixture has been the largest selling bulk pipe tobacco in the United States for decades. See for yourself why it’s so popular.
“An oldy but goody. Usually described as "the oldest best selling pipe tobacco," and it is easy to see why. It smells good, the room note is pleasant to the observing noses and it doesn't taste like garbage halfway through. That being said, it is a standby blend that is pretty basic and doesn't have a lot of depth to it. I would recommend this if you are an aro fan (and somehow haven't had it yet) or need a blend that smells good, is cheap in bulk and doesn't taste like chemically burnt ash before you're almost finished. If you're looking for a complex blend, look elsewhere.”
“OK but not as good as I expected based on other lane tobaccos I have tried. 4stars.”
“Excellent mild blend. I have been smoking it for 18 years as my primary smoke. It's a light Cavendish with a touch of vanilla. The people around me often say the aroma reminds them of baking cookies.”
“I have been smoking this tobacco forever. It is mild, smoke cool (as long as you don't everwork it) and has an aromatic quality the is not only pleasing to the smoker but those around him. I have received many compliments by other around me when I have my pipe lit. Especially from the women who have told me that it smells a bit like chocolate. It is the perfect blend. You taste the nuttiness of the virginia, as well as have the fullness from the cavendish without being heaqvy like many cavensh blends. It has no flavorings or toppings, but then it does not need any. It is a great blend for beginners as well as the experienced pipe smokers.”
“I was given a few ounces of this a couple years ago. It was something I wouldn't have bought or even considered before. But after trying it, love this blend. It is now one of my regular monthly purchases. Very mild, pleasant smoke with mild earthy notes. It is very mild, and I use it in a 50/50 blend to cut other stronger aromatics. Some floural aromatics have a bite to them, but blending with this tobacco tones down that bite greatly. I love this tobacco as a mixer for several other blends. I regularly blend it with BVC and mixed with the vanilla makes for a very pleasant smoke, and note left in the room.”
“This is the best tobacco I have found, mild with no bit. I've been smoking it for twenty years. Also get good comments about the aroma too.”
“This was my first smoke out of a corn cob. Really good first impression for first time pipe experience. Enough to get to buy a briar and more of the stuff.”
“Always a cool and mild smoke with a pleasant aroma - without bite or aftertaste.”
“First time I have really smoked Lane 1Q and find it quite enjoyable. It is easy burning, stays lit, and has a fine room note. I find blending it with Lane BCA quite enjoyable. Lane 1Q has a natural taste being an aromatic, the aroma is vanilla/chocolate and enjoyable for those in close proximity. a fine everyday/all day smoke.”
“There IS a reason this is the #1 selling pipe tobacco.
Try it and see if you don't agree!!!!!!”
“Great stuff! The first Lane I've tried. Great aroma and burns nice. Now one of my favorites!”
“lane 1-Q is not my favorite tobacco I felt it did not live up to the talk won't be buying it again”
“The smell out of the box was wonderful. Just a wonderful aromatic that will be one my regular tobaccos. Stayed lit well, had great taste all the way through. Definitely a must buy for all aro lovers.”
“After a 20 year hiatus from pipe smoking, this was the first tobacco I bought upon my return. It is a solid smoke every time, which is one reason for its popularity. An mildly aromatic easy to smoke tobacco for the novice or someone returning to the fold.”
“This tobacco is definitely pipe tobacco. It gives a lot of smoke and burns evenly. A friend of mine, who does not enjoy pipe smoking at the present, commented that it smells like chocolate covered raisins, oddly enough. I haven't gotten tongue bite from it and have nothing really bad to say about it. Great stuff.”
“Awesome and it has no bite I be getting more of this”
“I think I've finally found my everyday smoke, between this and McClelland's VBC. Mixed 2 to 1, they marry together into a delightful cloud of mildly sweet vanilla/butterscotch goodness. Don't get me wrong, 1Q can hold it's own just fine by itself, but I crave a slightly stronger flavor and the VBC kicks it up a notch. The 1Q is great for a early morning smoke when you want something mild that pares perfectly with a hot cup of coffee. Now I just need to wait for a sale and buy a few more lbs.”
“Thanks for the exellent tobacco!! Love every bowl full!!”
“This is the one. Lane 1Q is 5 stars all the way. It is mild, with great taste has good room note, packs and lights easily and doesn't bite no matter how you smoke your pipe. 1Q is my go to tobacco.”
“I can see why everybody loves Lane 1-Q. It smokes cool, burns slow and even and just enuff sweetness .”
“Not too bad if you're into aeros. Casing is vanilla on the light side. Smokes a little wet and does well to dry out a bit.”
“I have been searching for a suitable replacement for Flying Dutchman. I loved the aroma and that is actually what got me started smoking a pipe. The Flying Dutchman Match didn't do it for me. Actually, I mixed two parts of Lane Limited BCA with one part of Lane Limited 1-Q and experienced wonderful results. I had a fairly cool burn with just a little kick, lots of rich and creamy smoke, nice flavor, and a nice aftertaste that wasn't like an ashtray. I must agree with many reviews I have read. The tobacco burned all the way to the bottom, leaving a little white ash. For an Aromatic lover, BCA and 1Q are one fine smoke and hard to beat.
“There is nothing bad to be said about this blend. It smokes very cool with no bite, which is really unusual for an aromatic. It tastes very smooth and has an almost sweet and creamy finish. A lot of aromatics smell a lot better than they taste, but the same can't be said for this blend.I didn't expect much since it is so inexpensive, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The more I smoke it, the more I like it. It may even become my go-to smoke. I will definitely be re-ordering but this time I am putting in a much larger order.”
