    Do a search and you'll find a bunch on it.

    Short story, I like it. It is not a sweet virginia. Has some earthiness going on. It is stronger and bolder than alot of virginias. I love it on a cool morning with a hot cup of strong black coffee.

    I love it. It's different than any other blend I have ever tried. Glenn summed it up pretty nicely.

    Strong and earthy nails it on the head. Not to be smoked in a hurry, take your time with this one.

    I bought my first tin at the C&D table in Chicago. I opened it a month ago and thought it was fair after my initial bowl. I switched pipes and was more impressed with bowl #2. The earthy, smooth, slightly spicy seemed to work better, and now I can't get enough of it. I have it on the bulk TAD list.

    Funny this thread came up- I just smoked a fat bowl at lunch in a Savinelli.

    Despite it's name, it goes down well in a good Meer as well.

    I smoked it in a smaller bowl, and it seemed a bit more peppery, and less earthy. I've loaded it in a couple of larger bowls and its smoother, more earthy-smokey, and just a little spice. Much nicer
