    Hahaha!!

    As for the cap'n, I'd have to say that on occassion CBW is nice after a heavy lat blend as no matter how it's smoked it'll always be smooth and mellow.

    My only fondness for CB is due to the fact a neighbor (in my youth)smoked it all the time. I smoked a pouch of it when I started up the pipe...found it benign to a fault. Maybe it's me, but anything black cavendish, and more recently, burley, equates to a forgettable experience.
    (It also doesn't help that it's 5 bucks for 1.5 oz. around here...I can get 2 ounces of McC Red Cake for a few pennies less...a no-brainer, that.)

    CBW is what I started smoking when I first picked up the pipe. Could be that I went overboard with a couple of the tubs that are unopened (probably wont be anytime soon) but there you have it. I would probably even be glad to reduce that stockpile but I am not sweating it.

    - and YES, I STILL LIKE IT. No apologies , no excuses, deal with it. :velho: :velho:

    Granted, not very often, and I wish it did not have the glycol in it. Every now and then I find myself drifting back for a bowl especially around folks that might not like my stronger Virginia aroma.

    I had a pouch of CBW about a year ago. I don't think it was that bad. It wasn't great either. My biggest problem is the price. It's like $7 a pouch here.

    I like an occasional sweet-ish, vanilla black cavendish every once in a while for a change of pace. I have another blend in my cellar that fills that need, is cheaper, and tastes more natural. CBW still has a touch of chemical taste to me.
