    I may be interested in getting in on this. However, I'm in the process of closing on and moving into a new house, so it will be a few weeks before all that settles down and I can give this a go.

    Review Sample 4 - smoked in a MM Legend

    Bag note - light, sweet, with a distinct nondescript fruitiness ;)

    Description - Light to medium brown, a touch on the dry side. Looks like some form of shredded/broken flake.

    Light - One char, and it was lit, very easy. Immediately hit with a fruity sweetness.

    1st Half - My first impression is Erinmore Flake or something similar. A nice sweet medium tobacco taste, the snork is fruity and smooth. Smokes very easily. When over puffed, it handles it well, I taste a lil tang of sour on my tongue when smoking a lil hot. I found it pleasant. No tongue bite. Cools down quickly and easily.

    2nd Half - Much the same as the first, consistent the whole way down. A touch ashy at the bottom, but that is expected. Definitely a fan of this smoke. If it is Erinmore, I will need to start rubbing it out ( i usually fold and stuff), cause this seems a touch fruitier than my stock. If it is not, then I need to get some of this. :D

    I'm kooking forward to whatever Nesta is sending me . I've been smoking a boatload of H&H / SWR / Firedance [ in the Spillproof Masterful Billiard ] . I could use a little variety . I think my taste buds will either go into shock or really dig it

    I haven't smoked a pipe in a little over a month, I'm going through withdrawals :(.

    Just been so busy with life stuff/holidays and what not.

    I know your poking stick is in jest, but I felt like an explanation was owed ;). I've got my bday, my wifes bday and (obviously) xmas coming up and work is really busy this time of the year but I'll try to squeeze them in before the end of next week ;).

    Oh, I've also had a head cold/allergies for like 3 weeks (fun stuff)

    Hmm. I didn't really notice a honey taste when I smoked it. More of the fruitiness.

    Love the reaction photos though.:ohyh:

    hehe, very nice pic Spill. ;) I enjoyed it, didn't pick up any honey, more fruit. That one was on my TAD list,but a bit far down. Thanks for the taste N3MO, guess it's moving a bit higher on that list. :D
