    OK, I went to my B&M to pick up a few new types of pipeweed and they didn't have what I was searching for. Soooo.. I made a quick, uneducated joice just to try my luck.
    I wound up with some Larsen 2010 edition, Peterson Sunset Breeze, and Cornell&Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket.
    I tried some of the SB and, eh, I'll hafta see. Then I tried the C&D and WOW! :thumbsu: I loved it! This was a totally new flavor for me. I'm not sure what it is, but something in here is awesome. I have always been an aro guy, but now I'm thinking about expanding my collection.

    Anyone else try this? Like it? or Hate it?
    Can you give me any idea about the tobacco perique, turkish, and latakia. I tried Balkan in the past and thought it was waaayy to strong and have avoided latakia, but now I am wondering what I've been missing.
    Sorry to ramble here.

    I have been through a couple of tins of this stuff. Been smoking for 30+ years but not a heavy smoker. Not sure what I like but I know what I don't like. When I smoke this blend it is in a Peterson pipe and usually outside. It is difficult to pick thing sout of the mixture but I do enjoy it and try to smoke it slower so I can enjoy it even more. Placed an order for some other C&D blends. My favorites are English blends and MacBaren tinned blends. Thanks for letting me put my $.02 into the discussion.
