Over-rated and over-hyped
August 23, 2015
By: Leonard G.
I would say this tobacco is fair to middling. I gave it a one star rating because it is way too over-hyped. I know it's been around forever and it seems everybody wants to use it as a sort of gold standard for all the other bulk aromatics, but in my ... Read More
Every tobacconists house blend
July 26, 2015
By: Kevin G.
My first thought upon opening 1-Q and taking a whiff: "This smells exactly like the stuff that most tobacco shops sell as a house blend." Little did I know, and learned later through some Google-Fu, that's actually exactly true! Now, full d... Read More
Not bad - But may be over-rated.
June 18, 2015
By: Kam D.
After reading all the great reviews, I ordered this tobacco to try out. I should say that, it is over-rated. Of course, it has good flavour and It smokes well, but I wouldn't write home about it. Just my 2 cents though! - This is an update on my ... Read More
Expected Something Marvelous
June 12, 2015
By: Serafim Junior D.
I don't understand why all the fuss over 1-Q. I ordered 4oz of it to try and all I can say is that there's better and cheaper bacci on smokingpipes than the 1-Q like Sutliff's Fox & Hound and Night Cap. It's just too overhyped. 3.5 stars. Edit 6/2... Read More
My favorite.
May 24, 2015
By: Jeffrey H.
1-Q is by far my favorite aromatic tobacco. I can best describe the room note being one of vanilla and or marshmallows. The flavor is really mild and smooth without any bite. This blend burns evenly right to the bottom of the bowl without a lot of re... Read More
Always come back to 1Q and BCA
May 21, 2015
By: Bryan S.
For all the tobaccos I've smoked over the past 30 years, I always come back to 1Q and BCA. I must have 25 different tobaccos cellared, both aros and non-aros, but my daily smokes are 1Q, BCA or the two combined. You can't beat the classics. And you... Read More
I can appreciate when an Aro doesn't gunk up my pipe
May 13, 2015
By: Caleb W.
the leaf and burn quality is really good for this blend, but unfortunately for my palate there's really not much in the way of flavor. I get just hints here and there but more often than not, it's left me wanting.

Not really a fan.
March 28, 2015
By: Carl F.
I only recently tried this blend. Had I started smoking this when I first started smoking a pipe, I might have a certain nostalgia for it. Decent flavor overall- Like toasted marshmallows.. Very, very mild.. Puffing as hard as I can I really can... Read More
Good Smoke / Vanilla Creme, Cherry Cordial flavor
March 16, 2015
By: Art L.
I was really excited to try the 1-Q after reading so many great reviews and the 1-Q is a solid, good aromatic. This is a nice mellow aromatic but not my favorite. My taste may be extreme to most smokers though. I prefer sweet/strong casing/mellow ... Read More

Exactly As Described
January 08, 2015
By: George G.
I generally prefer English-style blends because I find most aromatics burn far too hot and are generally unpleasant to smoke for very long. This is NOT one of those aromatics. The burn was cool and flavor was wonderful throughout. My only complaint w... Read More
Outstanding smoke
September 04, 2014
By: Marshall M.
I've tried many different tobaccos, but I still come back to 1Q. No tongue bite, very smooth, easy to smoke all day. I like it so much I get it in 5 lb. bags to make sure I don't run out.

I can certainly see why this is the No. 1 selling pipe tobacco in the world. No sticks, no twigs, none o'that, just beautiful long ribbons, moist that pack and smoke wonderfully. Very smooth, smokes cool, and gave a very long smoke from my MM cob. Ta... Read More
Not what I expected
August 12, 2014
By: Jamie F.
If you're a new pipe smoker and trying to find your style, you'll more than likely give this a shot. I thought from the descriptions of this that I would be an aromatic smoker but after trying this, I'm going to have to reconsider. Opening the bag an... Read More
There's a Reason It's #1
July 30, 2014
By: Randy G.
My all time favorite! Great with tea, great with scotch. How does the Room Note rating only have one dot?! By far the favorite tobacco for non-smokers in the room. As noted in other reviews, it's a great tobacco for beginners and legends alike. ... Read More

July 07, 2014

Great stuff. THE pipe smell non smokers expect from a pipe. My fiance wants someone to make a scented candle of this stuff. She will ask me to smoke it from time to time if I've not in awhile. She associates it with the early days of our relationship... Read More
What's the Hype About?
June 24, 2014
By: Jeremy S.
I was wondering what all the hype was about reading reviews on this stuff. I ordered it and found out. This stuff is great. It's slightly creamy and incredibly smooth. I find it best in a larger bowled pipe. Enjoy!
1-Q is a De Rigeur Pipe Tobacco
June 22, 2014
By: Bryan K. social situations and for both beginning and advanced pipe smokers. I say socially, because 1-Q is the quintessential pipe smoke whose aroma non-pipe smokers remember with fondness. The room note is so pleasant that anyone who complains about i... Read More

I'm just about out of my first batch of this, and I gotta have more. I went from one smoke a day with other tobaccos(tongue-bite related issues) to three a day with 1-Q with a lot less problems with t-b. This stuff smokes great and gets very positive... Read More

Smooth and sweet, but not overly sweet. Pleasure to smoke. The real surprise though...the many comments from the others around me. Constant good comments from friends and strangers.

Great stuff! The first Lane I've tried. Great aroma and burns nice. Now one of my favorites!
A must have for your rotation!!!
December 03, 2013
By: Eric C.
This is what an everyday aromatic should be! This will remain in my rotation for a VERY long time. Great flavor! Excellent in every way!
Pretty good!
November 27, 2013
By: Shaun M.
Smooth, sweet and mild. A good mellow smoke for any time of day or night. Not harsh to inhale and the aroma is very pleasant. Nothing too complex here just a solid smoke. Leaves a very nice taste in the mouth.

Excellent for a long day and the blend is just right saving your mouth from the usual bite. Very nice smoke and reasonably priced. Ideal for those with sensitive mouths.
My all-time favorite!

By: Eric E.
If you have a "three pipe problem" or just want to smoke copius amounts of tobacco, look no further. I love this stuff and would sprinkle it on my food if I could.

1-Q is a 1 star
September 11, 2013
By: Phillip P.
The taste of this tobacco is anything but tobacco. It tastes like sugar casing and smokes incredibly, incredibly hot. If you like tongue bite and a bit a strange chemical after taste, this one is for you.
August 22, 2013
By: Timothy S.
There's a reason this has been one of the number one sellers for years and years. It's firmly in that "American style", or light aromatic. Vanilla and caramel. Smokes dry, and cool. Really nice quality. Smokes all the way down, leaving a f... Read More

By: Stephen S.
I am an old smoker. Recently returned to Lane 1-Q after smoking other tobaccos for many years and have found an old friend that I won't give up again. It's my all day, every day tobacco - I don't need any other. I heartily agree with all of the com... Read More
Pleasant Smoke
June 12, 2013
By: Wayne B.
Lane 1-Q is a very mellow smoke with some people saying, it has a slight vanilla aroma. I think it's light on the nicotine hit. Makes a good all day, regular smoke at a good price.

By: Matthew T.
I lived near a bread maker when I was a kid and I'll never forget that wonderful aroma. I finally got around to trying this for the first time last night, even though I've been smoking pipe for 20 years. I went from Borkum Riff to Dunhill tins and ne... Read More

Not my favourite.
March 04, 2013
By: Marcus G.
I realize that my experience with 1Q is by far the exception to the rule. However, I've tried this tobacco in a number of pipes on a number of occasions and I simply don't enjoy it at all. I found it to have a sour smoky flavor, I couldn't detect the... Read More

This has been my mainstay for years. No bite and a gentle sweet smoke with a hint of chocolate. Great stuff!!

Clean and simple, cocoa toffee and vanilla, and toasted feel and easy on the nicotine. This blend has earned its place. It's the coca-cola classic of pipe tobacco, goes well with any event, and nearly everyone enjoys the simple flavour and aroma.

A very nice and enjoyable smoke. Smoke it slow and you get nice sweet and creamy smoke.
