Country Gentleman Corn Cob Pipe
- Product Review (submitted on February 26, 2013):
This is by far and away, my favorite MM model. The Country Gentleman holds a fairly large amount of tobacco, and for me personally runs around 40 minutes to an hour smoke-wise. It is a fairly large bowl, and easily overshadows the Legend/Pride/Washington in size. One thing to note, the CG DOES NOT have a hard-wood plug, which is a very nice feature included in the Diplomat and some of the other Cobs MM produces. This is a filtered pipe, but I find most of MM's 'filtered' pipes have an excellent draw without the filters.
Like all Cobs there is a bit of a 'break-in' time that comes with burning through the insert at the bottom of the bowl. You get a 'woody' sort of taste as it burns, not like saw-dust, but close. Once broken in however, it offers a fantastic smoke, especially for such a low price. I'd highly recommend this as a first cob, since it has a larger bowl, and most new pipe smokers who just want to sit back, will really appreciate the increased size. A fantastic offering from MM, every cob smoker should have at least ONE CG!
