    Oh Lordy.... I cracked a tin of Club, seems to be from 08.... and

    it sucks.

    It has no sweetness, no spice, none of that stuff I so look forward to. It tastes like a heavy Va/Per. I am at a loss. Have my tastes changed, or has the product changed, or did I get a freaky tin?

    Anybody?

    Club Blend sucks, and it's for girls. Hope this helps.

    The last pound I bought was a few months ago, and other than being surprisingly dry, as in needing moisture, it seems ok.

    I don't know that blend very well but I had a similar experience.
    Bought a tin about 6 months ago... didn't much like it.
    Jarred it up, tried it again recently, still didn't much like it.

    Dwaugh sent me some, probably from you, and I liked it a lot. Smoked it up. Went back to my jar and again flat. Tossed it.
    Weird.

    I almost bought a tin of CB; but I'm holding out for Old Dark Fired before I risk the Mac Baren curse again...

    I opened a jar from 2010 and it still tasted fine. A little sweet, a little spice, and a little of that malty goodness.

    Did you try it in a different pipe? Maybe you had something that skewed the flavor prior in the pipe you smoked it in.

    Either that or DG's switching from cobs to briars has altered the universe, and to balance things, your taste for Club Blend is gone for ever. :eek:

    Holy crap. I missed DG's conversion. That must have been why we had that cold snap a short while back...
