    This is not a review, but just my thoughts. :rolleyes:

    I smoked this blend for the first time last night. I was expecting something completely different. It was just too cloyingly sweet. I know this one gets rave reviews for an aro, but it was just too much for me. Felt like I was swimming in a tub of butterscotch.

    Worse, I smoked this before bed and I woke up in the middle of the night and felt nauseous. NOt sure if it is coincidence or a product of the sweetness of the smoke? :cfsd:

    Anyone else not like this blend? If I let this blend sit for a few months, will it calm down?

    I find it goes into it's own in a month or two.

    I have some aged for 5 months, somewhere. If I can find it want a sample?

    I would take a sample, but you don't have to go out of your way. I'm going to jar what I have and test it after one month, two months, etc. I want to like this blend, so I'm not going to give up on it.

    I'll try to find it. I remember it being in a jar, just not remembering where I stuffed it away. This was before I was a serious smoker.

    Try as I may, I can't get this stuff to work for me. I realize that it is a very popular areo. I keep thinking I am missing the boat.

    It does calm down just a bit, but the nic hit remains. The flavor mellows.

    I really wanted to like this one too, but just don't care for it. The room and tin note was great, but it lacked the taste I was looking for.

    I haven't found there to be a significant nic hit from this one, but overall I like this blend. However, it took me about 2 or 3 months to start to like it. It's not that complex, I have found it makes for good blending with something a little heavier, as a "parfait." Not a bad aro, IMO! Hope you spend some more time with it; you never know, it could grow on you!
