    I went into this one not expecting much from it, but it was hella good. The purple cartoon can almost made me pass on it.

    It has maduro, which is usually used for cigar wrappers, but it doesn't taste like a cigar. Someone suggested I try it since I was so heavy into cigars.

    I am really glad it didn't taste like a cigar!

    I bought a tin waaaay back, around 05 maybe? Anywho, it seemed to smoke too dry and ashy for me, but it did have some backbone a good flavor.

    It's even better with a single malt on the side. :D

    The tin I have was dated 10/14/11 and it was still moist. I actually fanned it some before putting it in my pipe. Mine burned great and had a consistant white ash all the way through, and I was able to smoke the entire bowl without re-lighting. I smoked 3 bowls of it.

    For something that looks like it has a Ben and Jerrys ice cream label, it's some good stuff.

    +1 on the C&D labels :) but they certainly are great blenders!

    Cornell and Diehl also does the blending for some of my other favorites: Captain Earle (Ten Russians, Nightwatch), Two Friends (Deacon's Downfall) and GL Pease (Robusto, Key Largo).
