Relaxing, mellow and fragrant.
First bowl left me wondering why this tobacco is rated so high. The second bowl answered that question. About halfway through the bowl the flavor went to a sweet mellow cool flavor that was amazing. Have used it straight and as a blender with other tobaccos. Works great with cherry or vanilla flavored tobacco for me. Friend of mine tried it and thought it was great. This will be worth the extra to find a smoke shop in your area that carries it or to order from P & C.

This is the blend that saved the hobby for me
Up until this blend, the only aromatics I've sampled were Tinder Box blends that threatened to put me off of pipes for good. This was the first "real" blend I'd tried and I understand why it's America's best selling aro. It's smooth and flavorful, burns well and doesn't bite. Maybe it's the absence of burley which was the main player in all those other joke blends. I'll be keeping some 1Q on hand for sure.

The tobacco was nice and smooth, I will definitely purchase more. My only complaint is that it was somewhat dry by the time I received it.

Product is good but
Your shipping needs improvement. For the price that is charged, it should not take a week to arrive.

If There Were Only One Pipe Tobacco Lane Ltd 1Q Is It
Without even knowing how this tobacco is blended, or how it is judged for taste and other considerations, this tobacco will have you say to yourself "Wow how good!" and there is the Experience of 1Q. It is a different appreciation for every smoker but most will agree, this tobacco I like, this tobacco is Legendary, this tobacco is the best because it is always good. I do not believe that in my hunt for the best tobacco there is another as good as Lane Ltd 1Q. Maybe another occasional great tobacco when we're in the mood suits us better than 1Q but there isn't one other to take its place. Long Live 1Q.

My favorite
This is my absolute favorite tobacco. It smells amazing in the tin and has an excellent room note. I get complimented on its smell very often. It has a very mild sweet taste, perfect for an everyday smoke.

Tasty aro, lovely "grandpa" smell
Yum! A really great tobacco, sweet and mild. A slight chocolate smell in the room, and a really great room note that my mom mistook for my grandfather's pipe from many many years ago. Could easily be an everyday smoke if you like aros.

Is this even tobacco? No flavor at all. I'm not even sure it produced smoke! I think I was smoking steam... Boring!

Ahhhhhhh, what a relaxing smoke!!!!!!
Terrific tobacco. Loads well. Lights easily. Smokes slow and cool. No gurgle. No left over dottle. This is my 'go to' tobacco.

Nice as rain
Almost impossible to find something not good about this blend. Smooth, lite, bite less and pleasant note make this one of the few forever blends. Perfect burn to the bottom of the bowl.

1 Quality smoke!
Nice. This is a very cool smoking, no bite tobacco. Sitting out on my patio smoking a bowl as I type. My new Stanwell Vario is doing this justice. I plan on breaking in the new pipe with this. I tried smoking some Lane BCA that I got in this but I prefer the 1Q right now. The BCA seems a little too heavy for a new pipe. Love PAC. It's my go to for all things pipe!

What Are You Smoking? The Best, of the Best, of the Best, Sir!
Two words that best describe Lane 1Q are smooth and mild, and this is just what 1Q patrons most like and pay for. Aficionados might even have more descriptive words for 1Q having a wider range of tastes in the libraries of bulk and tinned pipe tobaccos that they have tried than the new kids on the block like me. I wanted to taste the "best" pipe tobacco using the "best" pipe, ignited by the "best" soft-flame lighter and I agree with everyone whose opinion it is that 1Q is at the top of their favorites list because it is on mine also. I am smoking it now. But once you taste the best, as in best pipe tobacco, you can discover that in this World of fine tobaccos 1Q has its own place as in "always on hand" and "best" simply means "best on occasion".

What more can you say?
It's The Bee Gee's of pipe tobacco... even those who snub it for being too mainstream, or as stated "not refined enough", will secretly sneak off, buy a pound, and smoke it in the closet :D. Taste is always the same, room note is never offensive, price is always good here at P and C. Chances are, that good "house blend" at your B&M is made up of 50% or more 1Q. Be careful though... it will bite you if you let it.

Smooth and light
a very good aromatic that has a great room note . I get lots of compliments about how good it smells.

Classic, Tasty
Lane 1-Q is a classic tasty mix, that never seems to "go off" which is important because of the amount I buy in bulk at a time. Sure some might not find it refined enough, but the ladies always love the room note.

Lane 1Q Is For All
Always a great deal on the lane 1 pounders no matter what blend you like. 1Q is still one of my favorite blends so far and keep in my rotation regularly. The floral /fruity fragrance is quite down home and pleasant. I only give it 4 stars because there is that one magnificent tabacco blend that may elude us all for being the tippy tippy top all time favroite blend which gives you the most absolute smoking experiance of all time which you still may not have found and i have reserved that 5th star for just that occasion to come. Though Lane 1Q is very close its just not quite there. But it is not one to pass over either. For you, 1Q may be your 5th star which is all good : ) But for me im still searching for that one tobacco that delivers the best flavor/taste, Aroma, NO TOUNGE BITE and pleasant experiance you could imagine from pipe tobacco.

The Best All Around
Absolutely the best all around. I also use this tobacco as the base for a few home blends, especially good with a touch of cherry.

One Of My Favorites
I like this tobacco. It ranks up there with my favorites. I like the fine ribbon cut, and it burns very nicely - not too hot or too wet. It also has a very pleasant room note (or so I’m told, as it’s difficult for me to tell as the smoker). It’s slightly sweet but not too sweet. Really just right in most regards. If I could change anything, it would be to give it a little more body or “uumph”.

Great company
i have always enjoyed purchasing products from you and the service has been excellent. The gifts are also welcomed, I have yet to try the wine cards you have sent. I love the Lane 1Q blend and always receive compliments on the aroma.

I'm sitting on a porch swing listening to some blues. I didn't think you could improve on that much until I lit my first bowl of Lane. This is absolutely perfect. I will not be without it.

Everyday Smoke
A mild, dependable smoke. Mild, aromatic, and nice tobacco flavor. Burns well for me in a cob, but usually requires a little drying to smoke the best. No tongue bite, unless I smoke it too fast.

My new favorite Cavendish.
I've been smoking the McClelland equivalent of this for many years; my last being cellared for 3 years but Lane's beat it, right out of the bag with no cellaring whatsoever. I could go on for a month of Sunday's but suffice is to say that this is my new favorite Cavendish. Nuff said. 10 wonderful stars.

Light and easy
Very mild smoke with little aromatic aftertaste - a good tobacco for times when you want something light and mild. Smokes well and stays lit easily, but does not offer a lot for those looking for a bolder tobacco.

If anything else is better, I don't need to know about it
Ordered 4 oz. of this to try. After smoking a few bowls, turned around and ordered a pound. When I'm smoking this I wonder why I bother with anything else; it's that good. A perfect smoke right out of the P&C bag.

Best of the best.
My very favorite. I have been smoking this for almost 30 yrs and to me there is no tobacco better. Very smooth and well balanced. A total pleasure right to the bottom of the bowl. I have tried other tobaccos but I never am without 1Q. If they ever quite making this well I suppose I would have to quit smoking.

Lane 1-Q review
Very sweet, well-behaved blend. A balanced presence is present throughout and it burns right down to a fine ash. Highly recommended for the beginner and the advanced pipe smoker. alike. Be sure to let it dry before smoking.

Sticks and a lot of thick cut stems
I have smoked Lane 1Q for over ten years, my only compliant is there are stems that are thick and sticks I can only guess are part of the tobacco plant. I just toss ém and there isn't a lot of them. I purchase by the pound and I obviously like lane 1Q.

Lane 1-Q Review
This tobacco is easy smoking. The Virginia is flavorful with nutty and fruity tones while the cavendish smooths out the smoke adding aromatic tone of chocolate and vanilla. This tobacco smokes cool and smooth and is the perfect smoke for the new pipe smoker as well as the veteran.

Great products and service
I've purchased a number of items from Pipes and Cigars but mostly tobacco. The Lane 1Q is the best selling tobaco on the market, and with good reason. The cost from P&C is great compared to retail tobaco stores and their delivery is prompt and reasonably priced. Matter of fact, anything I have ever ordered from them has been shipped quickly and accurately. I had one question (not a problem) on one order and sent an email. I had a reply literally within an hour with an answer ... from a real person! Great products; great service. All PROs and NO CONs.

Customer Testimonials
Very, very smooth smoke. Nice and cool, and no bite! Love it all day long.
First pipe tobacco I've tried. I had previously smoked cigarettes for years and the occasional cigar. Pretty smooth smoke, much more mellow than it smells, and the room doesn't smell offensive at all after a bowl. I'm fairly certain I'll be buying more when needed.
Finally tried this, very pleasant, no unpleasant after taste or burn and very little ash. Burned very clean. Will be a regular of mine. Will still get Scotty's Butternut Burley tho. I love the honey nutty taste.
I like the tobacco but my half pound arrived so wet I had to let it dry overnight on a paper towel so I could smoke it. I wont let it keep me from buying more but hopefully the next batch will be better.
I can't tell if I like it or not. It's enjoyable one moment and blah the next.
This is a no nonsense pipe tobacco that is pleasant, great smelling, cheap and did I mention pleasant. Smells mild in the bag, lots of compliments from people when i light this up.
I had purchased this without knowing that is was Lane 1Q from a tobacconist in Omaha. They called it "Windsor". They said they sell A LOT of it, which now makes sense! the smell is wonderful. It was pretty moist at first, but has dried out enough to be a pleasant smoke. while i wouldn't say its my favorite, it is a solid product. It was one of my first aromatics and will continue to be enjoyed.
OMFG i absolutely love this blend. lane did something amazing with making this blend, HOMERUN . I get all gitty and excited when i pack this in my bowl , like a kid about to open a birthday gift. if you dont like this blend then your just crazy lol make sure to get an oz or 2 of lane BS-005 also the more you get the cheaper they get .. so get a ton you'll like it
This is the Stella Artois of pipe tobacco. Nothing fancy, just consistently refreshing.
Absolutely amazing tobacco and at better price.every lane blend i've tried has left me wanting more
A nice every day smoke. A little light on flavor, but a good value. Better than the pouches of pipe tobacco sold at wally world.
I was expecting something good when I first bought this tobacco. I was smoking out of a corn cob. When it first arrived it was a little too moist. Once I let it dry out I smoked it and I was not impressed. I heard it was an everyday smoke, and it is, but if you focus and trying to find the flavors of the blend then this is not for you. I found almost no flavor and found it almost bitter around half way down the bowl. Though if you are working and not focusing on the blend then go ahead and buy a pound, but it is not a smoke to focus your complete attention on.
This should be in any pipe smoker's rotation. I love this blend.
I was a Holiday pipe tobacco smoker for 4o+ years and my father before me. I haven't found a satisfactory replacement yet. Am I the only frustrated ex Holiday pipe smoker?
The best of the best...smells great..never bites..not expensive...a great choice to blend with others...sometimes a little wet...but burns well to the bottom of the bowl. Never it by the goes fast...
My new favorite, I got enough to last a whole year.
Not as good as I thought it was going to be. Room note is amazing, and it does smoke very well, but just not my favorite.
To me this was not like Captain Black, it was more like Sir Walter Raleigh aromatic. The first bowl I smoked, I was not too impressed but I kind of hurried through it. My second bowl, though found it to be very mild and reminded me of my grandfather when he smoked pipe. I think I'm going to really like the stuff.
I bought a couple of ounces of this tobacco because I wanted to see if it lived up to it's reputation... it does. I think I just discovered my favorite aromatic. It smoked cool and tasted great to the very bottom of the bowl. I'll be ordering a lot more of this.
Great everyday smoke. This can be a go to tobacco in anyone's rotation. Burns cool and the aroma is excellent even to non smokers. If I had to choose one aromatic to smoke this may be the one.
The best aro on the market plan and simply.
Excellent flavor, wonderful aroma, relaxing, all around great blend.
This is the blend that has kept me enjoying the fine art of pipe smoking. An easy smoke with a very pleasant room note. While this is great for veterans it is perhaps the best blend to introduce new fellas to. I know if I hadn't been introduced to 1-Q I would have laid the pipe down after the horrible experience with the blend I first tried. Thankfully 1-Q was out there waiting to bring joy to a beginning pipe smoker's bowl.
Just received 4 Oz of lane 1q and I am smoking my first bowl as I type wow this is what I have been looking for. All I can say is great. Best tobacco I have ever smoked
Very enjoyable. Classic aroma and no bite. Excellent!!
Lane 1-Q is the aromatic that I judge all other aromatics by. Its not the best, but it is certainly the standard. A solid, enjoyable smoke every time. Wonderful aroma both out of the jar and in the bowl with a light room note. It's easy to see why this one sells so well.
It's easy to see why it's the number one seller, its a great smoke, but lacks depth, extreme wet, but nobody ever complains about the aroma, most people walk up and compliment the aroma or how it reminds them of someone they once new that once smoked a pipe
Exactly what you'd expect out of the best selling tobacco in the world. Not overly sweet like some aromatics but not too heavy either. Good all around.
Thanks for the exellent tobacco!! Love every bowl full!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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. JJ
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.
lane 1-Q is not my favorite tobacco I felt it did not live up to the talk won't be buying it again
Great stuff! The first Lane I've tried. Great aroma and burns nice. Now one of my favorites!
There IS a reason this is the #1 selling pipe tobacco. Try it and see if you don't agree!!!!!!
I can see why everybody loves Lane 1-Q. It smokes cool, burns slow and even and just enuff sweetness .
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
