MATCH Crown Achievement

At one time, Lane Limited's Crown Achievement was among the most expensive and exclusive pipe tobaccos in the world. Now that Lane is no longer making it, people thought it was gone for good, but with the arrival of MATCH Crown Achievement, the taste you remember is back, but at a much more affordable price.

The Match?
Very good English blend considering the price margin, will purchase again...not for beginners! wonderful taste and aroma, no bite whatsoever. Pipes and Cigars..great service as usual. I've been dealing with them for 25 years, no complaints.

Great find.
Loved the original Crown Achievement. When it was discontinued, I tried other english blends and they were not quite the same. The match Crown Achievement blend's taste is a very close resemblence to the original. The leaf is not the same quality as original (price reflects that) however that does not affect it's performance. Match Crown Achievement is a good product and hope it lives on!

Decent Smoke
Decent smoke can’t say it’s going to make it into my rotation. The Match blend on its own merit is worth having a oz or two on hand.

Its back...
Like many other pipe smoker's I discovered Balkan Sobranie in the lare 1960's. When it stopped selling tobacco in the US to avoid being sued by the "let's get millions out of tobacco companies sharks," oops I meant lawyers I went to Peretti's British Blend. Then a local shop, subsequently also sued out business, introduce me to crown achievement. When that ended I quit smoking a pipe for some time. The match product is excellent. It is everything you could want in a Latakia blend. It has that lovely, ethereal Latakia aroma and flavor. It is surprising cool smoking for a high Verginia content blend. Highly recommend this one.

MATCH Crown Achievement is both: a match for the original, and a great achievement.
Terric blend! I’ve been a pipe smoker for 51 years, and was a big fan of the original Lane blend back when I was young, making money, and a stupid spender. However, I’m now old, on a fixed income, and only a bit wiser, so the thought of paying big bucks a tiny tin of expensive tobacco, except for an occasional treat, no longer appeals to me. However, since the original Crown Achievement vanished years ago, this was moot, until now. Whe I found out that P&C had introduced a MATCH blend, I was curious, but not too hopeful. Was I ever wrong?!! This is a virtual clone of the origional, but does seem to be a tiny bit more gentle to the tongue. And the aroma…Latakia heaven! Thanks, I’ll soon be ordering more.

Match Crown Achievement is a pretty good match
I started out with the original Balkan Sobranie mixture some 50 years ago. When it went away, Crown Achievement was a worthy successor for many years until it, too, met its demise. Since then, I've been smoking some of the McClelland English blends, but have never been totally happy with them. I've been trying out Match Crown Achievement for the past several weeks, and like it quite a bit. It's hard to recall, but it seems to replicate the original Crown Achievement very well. My only complaint is that the tobacco arrived very dried out, so I had to resurrect my old tobacco-moistening skills before I could fully enjoy it. My next experiment will be to try the Match Original Balkan Sobranie. I'm looking forward to that!
