    I'm slightly interested in trying CB gold or white. But each time I see a pouch at over 8 bucks I think, why bother I could get two ounces of a quality bulk blend for that price.

    Zactly!! I mean.. you can get Lane Ltd. 1q for the blue label, or RLP6 for the white label.. or MV1000 for the gold stuff.. and it's bulk! I've had all three of the lane ltd. blends and love 1q and the mv1000 for when I'm in the mood for a sweet VA blend. kinda makes paying high pouch prices pointless.

    The Lane bulk blends are pretty good but are a different recipe and taste from the original CB blends which I prefer when I want something sweet, they are also available locally and that’s a plus!

    It's funny but I can smoke the captain but not 1q.

    hmmm.. Seems like a good chance to do a side by side comparison. I'll have to see about getting lined up for that!

    So tonight I was smoking cbw in a Cobb. Burnt all the way to the bottom. Just ash. My trick is I do air the pouch in advance some but then I load the pipe 30 min before I light it.
