    I've got these sitting waiting to be cracked open. I'm trying to decide on which one it will be. I'm not able to just sit and smoke much right now, so something that DGT's well is probably good.

    Suggestions?

    Ok. Opened the Chocolate Flake. Talk about a wonderful tin note; it almost smelled good enough to eat. I took a couple of the flakes, rubbed them out, and set them on a paper towel to dry for a bit. After half an hour or so I loaded them into my meer, and lit it up. The smoke was tasty, full, and definitely one I'll be going back to.

    The world would be a much happier place if everyone just did what I said! :ohyh:

    Ok, ok... NOT! :beck:

    Glad it worked out for you, though. CF is an excellent blend.

    It sure is, I am going to have to keep an eye out when it is available and buy a few tins here and there.

    Chocolate Flake is one of the SG blends I have yet
    to try. Fear not, I'll pick up some in June. Hoping
    to try some Scotch cut as well.

    Mr. dmkerr was the one that provided the impetus for me to go out and acquire some Chocolate Flake, and I'm glad he did. It's not my favorite blend in the world, but it's up there on the Gawith list. I even sent dwaugh some to try, and he seemed to like it as well, as I expected. My recommendation was going to be for you to open up the Westmorland, but to be honest, that was motivated by selfish reasons. I have yet to try that one, and I wanted to know what it was like. :) Oh well, I'm sure you'll get around to it, and when you do, hopefully I'll hear about it. The other three, I've had, and they are all very good tobaccos, as one expects from the house of Samuel Gawith.
