So I'm curious if anyone here has any experience with Former blends. Reviews on TR are lacking, and despite that I know there are sometimes blends with a ** rating that I love, and the opinions of others aren't reflective of my own and shouldnt influence mine, either. That said, I'm interested in the opinions of others and find them interesting. I find Samuel Gawith X Blend quite nice. Definitely an unusual smoke, but I find it a solid winner. Not treated to nicely on TR though.... I was eyeing some Former Birds Eye Flake. It's not well received on TR, but then again there aren't many reviews of it. Have any of you smoked it? Or any of the other blends? I suppose I'd almost prefer trying blends not as many people have reviewed on TR...don't want to unfairly influence my tastes with such prejudices, but I can't help it sometimes. Hell, I bought Ferndown Yellow and Brown on a whim knowing nothing about it and it's become one of my favorites - but there are only 6 reviews on TR. Anyway, I'll probably get this stuff regardless of what I'm told because hell, I want to try it. But that said, I'd like to hear opinions anyway!
