Lane HGL

Lane Limited HGL is a mixture of black Cavendish laced with smoky Latakia blended with mellow white Burley and golden Virginia to produce a sweet, fuller-bodied smoke, that is still cool and slow burning. This was purported to be the personal blend of Herman G. Lane, the man who made Lane Limited what it is today. If you like a pleasant aroma but miss the taste of Latakia, Lane HGL should hit the spot.

Very good and reasonally priced, too!
I liked Sail Green, but this is the best I ever had smoked. Burns perfect, stays lit, Latakia is just right. Perfect . Thanks Lane and Pipes and Cigars for great service and excellent tobacco! I will buy a lot more, for sure. I recommend this with mucho gusto.

Great taste
Pleasantly surprised by this tobacco. As I'm just beginning to try blends with Latakia, this one was a delight. Quickly becoming my all day smoke.

Mr Lane was right!!
Very enjoyable smoke, will be on future order. Nice English blend to smoke around people who do not like too much Latakia

Mr. Lane hit home run
Enjoyed this a lot, will order more in the future. I was able to smoke around others without the wrinkled nose I get when smoking some English blends

Sweet English
I really enjoy this blend. Somewhat aromatic, somewhat English. Enough Latakia to keep it interesting, but not overpowering. Sweet, but not too sweet.

HGL worth a try
Good stuff and great price at P&C.

Just the Right Amount of Latakia
I enjoy Lane RLP-6 as well as heavy Latakia blends and had been experimenting with blending Latakia and RLP-6. I did have some success and enjoyed the experiments, but Lane got the blend just right in HGL. The light percentage of Latakia really brings out the flavors.

HGL bulk
This is the first time I’ve gotten a somewhat English blend.Ive never tried it before or a Latakia blend, if ur a first time English blend this is where to start, it grew on me and I find that I like Latakia. I also bought lane 1Q, I like the 1Q but I felt it needed alittle more body so I mixed the two together 2 parts 1Q and 1 part HGL and viola it’s a all day smoke

Lane HGL. What a surprise!
In looking for something in between an English and an aromatic, I stumbled across this blend, read some reviews and gave it a try. What a pleasant surprise! It smokes sweet with flavors of caramel and vanilla but still retains enough latakia to keep the flavor interesting. I can't recommend this blend enough if you like latakia but want something different with a pleasant room note.

Got to try
I'm one of those that likes burleys,Virginias,cavendish,and English/Balkans . HGL blends these in such a way to make a wonderful tasty smoke that I can enjoy all day. Initially bought 4 ounces to try and went to 8 ounces. Looks like 16 ounces is around the corner. Thanks Herman for making this your favorite,because it just became mine.🤐👍⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Happy customer
1st time of buying HGL from P&C, received quickly, jarred upon receiving but have had to open jar due to seeing jar fog up. Tobacco may have been little on the moist side but smokes and smells great, at least to me. My Mrs. has mixed reviews on my English style blends. I enjoy in my Peterson pipes though, thanks for great prices, products, and service to all at P&C.

Lane Limited HGL - Excellent Tobacco
HGL is one of my favorite tobaccos. It is a great tasting tobacco, particularly if you enjoy latakia tobacco. It has a perfect balance, burns cool, and stays lite well. Highly recommended.

Bought 4 oz to try. Ran out and bought 8 oz. All the other reviews covered the rest.

Finally, a Latakia non Lat-bomb!!
Absolutely perfect tobacco for those of us who like Latakia, but do not want to be drowning in it. I like Latakia very much, and I love the tasteof it when mixed with other fine tobaccos, but I like it as an ingredient in a mix, not the dominant partner. This tobacco burns clean right down to the bottom of the bowl with no over the top spicy kickback from you-know-what. It is a mild to medium American type English, and I would not have it any other way. People at Lane Ltd. take note: as long as you make this blend, I will buy it.

A very nice all day use tobacco. This has a nice room note but not too overbearing. You will receive alot of compliments on the note.

Do's and don'ts
It is the perfect smoke for me. I like Latakia, yet I do not want to drown in the stuff. I want to know it is in a blend, and taste its it yet I do not want it to dominate everything else. I want something that has a pleasant aroma for the benefit of those around me. HGL does that, and more! It doesn't flatten my wallet, it doesn't alienate me from non smokers, and it doesn't burn nor bite my tongue. Would you conclude that I like the blend? YES I DO!

HGL is one of the best mixtures ever! No question. If you could only have 2-3 pipe tobaccos, HGL would have to be one of them!

Recently moved and have been looking in what's left of local tobacconists for HGL and came up zero. So glad to have found P&C. Good value, fast my HGL !

Lane makes good blends
I've liked most Lane blends I have tried, there are a couple I will buy again, this is one of them.

Good try
Was a little weak for my liking, seems like it needed more latakia. But all in all a good smoke.

Excellent Blend For Latakia Lovers
With all of the world's great tobaccos available to the very popular and highly successful Lane Limited Corporation,it's easy to see why HGL (his initials) was the personal favorite mixture of its founding father H.G. Lane himself. Latakia blends have always been one of my favorite smokes, but many of them can be rather stout and hot burning. However, HGL is a very pleasant blend of cavendish, virginia, burley and latakia where all tastes are present without eigher of them overpowering the others. HGL can easily be an all-day smoke and is absloute proof that Mr. Herman G. Lane was one of the world's premier tobacconists.

Go-to English blend.
I'm an aromatic lover, don't smoke English very much, but I do have several fine English and Balkan blends for when I'm in the mood. HGL is my go-to when I want that stronger smoke. Smooth and a bit sweet but not sugary. I can see what it was HGL's regular puffer. I'll be buying more when I'm done with what I have.

Perfectly sweet and smokey!
I am loving this blend! It burns well, smells great, and tastes fantastic. It has enough latakia to be noticable, with a gentle sweetness that lasts through most of the bowl. I can see why Mr. Lane smoked this on regularly!

Wonderful Tobacco!
I’m not sure what to call this. An American with a touch of Latkia? A light English? No matter what you call it, RGL is a mild to medium wonderfully tasty smoke. I love it.
4 out of 5
This casual smoker considers this blend a light English style, pleasant in a cob and briar. Less smokiness and a little less flavor than the McClelland TGL, but still good.

Very light Latakia with great medium tobacco taste
Black Sea is my favre Latakia smoke, along with HGL as a change-up. No bite, stays lit, burns evenly, verrry enjoyable for my taste, and these are my 2 Latakia smokes, after having tried many. For some reason, i enjoy this one more in a long stemmed Church Warden---I love it !!!---and it is available in bulk. Has no "negative" qualities-----Rik S.---Minden, NV

Oh so good
Love this one, smells great, tastes great, packs nice, wonderful to the bottom of the bowl. One of my all time favorites. Look forward to HGL over and over again. It is light on the Lat, but is really a crossover so smoke this one for pleasure not a nicotine buzz.

Wonderful taste and aroma, my wife even likes it.
I have only been smoking a pipe for a little more than a year. Most purchases I have made through P&C have been very pleasing, especially Lane BCA and Lane HGL.

Great price for a quality product
All of the Lane's line of tobaccos that I have tried are excellent and the flavor is great.

Smooth and sophisticated blend.
This blend taste a lot like Captain Black with a touch of Latakia in it. Smokes cool with no tongue bite and a pleasant aroma. I ordered two ounces to start with, but I'm planning on ordering 8 ounces next time

one of my favorites
HGL is a perfect balance of tobaccos. Will always be in my daily rotation.

Worth the Trial
A light English for English and aromatic pipers that can be enjoyed all day instead of on occasion or at certain times. I savor an English as an alternative from time to time, but this one earned a place in a jar on my desk and was quickly gone. It's not an aromatic option, but people walking or living nearby don't run form the scene either. Tried it because the Lane owner liked it. He had good taste. And, along with Proper English, it's one brand that I'd order again and again.

All Day Smoke
This is a mild smoke with a hint of latakia.The more I smoke it, the more I like it.There is virtually no bite and can be smoked all day.Lat lovers will be disappointed and I suggest they try BS-005 instead.Good stuff at a good price.Don`t leave home without it.

Good smoke.
Well, Herman knew what he was doing with this blend. It is another tobacco to consider for more in the future.

Very good robust tobacco
Lane HGL is my number one Blend. Good robust blend with really good taste, I like the cut of the tobacco and the way it packs. I smoke it every day. The first bowl to the last smokes cool and no bite and if you smoke it right it will burn all the way down. I have a Savinelli Bent Green and a Royal Dutch Lumberman that Lane HGL is the only tobacco I smoke in them. I always have 8 Oz on hand!!!

All Day Long
Loads easily, Lights easily, Burns well, Clean robust flavor yet not overpowering and easy on the palate. I would call this a 'Light English' which can be enjoyed all day with ease.

A non-aromatic tobacco for an aromatic crowd.
My lady likes potpourri tobacco, and I like smoking non-aromatics and sometimes an English. In an effort to preserve the peace when I smoke at home, I started sampling around at almost random, first with aromatics that I found sickeningly sweet. Eventually, I found this. I believe it is a modified version of the old one that is now a little less sweet and more latakia than when it went off and came back on the market. She said, "Is that coffee and chocolate?" No, it's unflavored tobacco. We have a winner, but it has some drawbacks. It's not enough latakia to please a Balkan lover. It lacks the sweetness of great Virginia flakes. Some people might call this well balanced. Others will call this a straight compromise. It's great all day, but keep some tobacco in your rotation that will make your taste buds tingle.

A new favorite
A wonderfully relaxing smoke. In other blends I have found Latakia to be a bit overwhelming but with this blend it is just right for me.

Lane HGL
This is a cool smoking English/American type blend that has nice body and flavor. Good all day with just the right amount of Latakia to tilt this in the English direction. If you enjoy Latakia, but not in heavy doses, this should be in your rotation.
Customer Testimonials
I've been smoking this for a couple of years now and like it very much. It's a nice change from Lane I-Q, with a little more life and sharpness to it, but not too much. The price is right, too.
Lane HGL is a cool nice burning smoke, that is a good replacement when Russ' s magnum opus is out of stock, when is almost all the time, thank heaven for Herman
I have had 6-8 bowls of my first order and enjoyed its consistent packing, lighting and burning. Very easy and effortless. The taste, for me, is a mild Virginia with an underlying tone that I would not be able to identify if I did not know it has latakia. I am a lat fan of Russ's Magnum Opus and find this blend is a good alternate. It is not one I would call bold or even strong and it has no nic effect: a requirement for me. If I was Herman Lane, know all the sellers and could have any tobacco in the world then I would smoke this blend regularly. But, then he did not have a chance to try MO.
