Sample #2 Smoking out of the same meer. Appearance - Very dark, very small fine cut. Very moist. Sitting out on a piece of paper for a bit to dry. Baggie note - Rich, dark, earthy. Very appealing. dried half hour still a bit moist Char light - Hard to describe, but very good initial taste. Like the bag note. 1st half bowl - This tobacco is already on my list to buy. Very hard to describe. It is very very smooth, creamy buttery smoke. Earthy. It reminds me of when I worked in a greenhouse when I was 17. The rich smell of the potting mix, the humidity, the growing things, the girl I was in love with.... Hit me right in the nostalgia center of the brain. Brought back a lot of memories. Mid bowl - Still can't really describe what it tastes like. Perhaps hints of cinnamon or nutmeg-ish spice notes. not sweet but still smooth. Wonderful snorks. Mmmm... 2nd half - Still can't liken it to anything really, turning into fine white ash, a few relights mid bowl but burning great now. An edge appearing out of the smoothness. The only thing that comes to mind is the inside of a fig newton but that's not exactly it. This is fantastic. A perfect pairing with the rainy Autumn day I'm looking out the window at. More tastes developing towards the end of the bowl but I can't describe what it is. There is a very nice mild tang coming out... End of bowl -- Good to the last puff. More intense flavor at the end. Small bit unburned at the bottom of the bowl, probably should have dried it a tad more. Opinion - That was about a good as a pipe can be. A blend to smoke with no distractions, good at first light and just gets better as it burns. If I were to name this I would call it Nostalgia Blend. Many thanks Dave. A perfect bowl. This is why I smoke a pipe.
