    Some good points here. I recently opened up a tin, smoked it once and fell in love with the blend. I liked it so much I thought about stocking up on it in such a way as to be prepared for Armageddon. I should probably at least finish the tin first huh? :lol:

    @ Dondi, that review is great! I myself am a fan of mostly Blakan and English blends and am somewhat more uncouth than I am domesticated. I think I'll have to give it a whirl. Have you ever tried it in bulk?

    Next installment is, G.L. Pease Embarcadero:

    Another sliced cake. Deep, rich aroma greets you upon opening
    the tin. Colours range from golden to dark brown. Rubs out nicely,
    and packs well (although, I got it a little tight). In the Caminetto again.
    BTW, I believe my Cam is about a no. 4? This is a mostly VA blend
    with some Izmir leaf mixed in, bringing a hint of spiciness, and added
    depth to the already intriguing mixture. I set the pipe down for at least
    a minute after charring, and it was still lit! So, I disregarded the second
    light, but had to relight mid-bowl due to my over zealous packing.

    This is a great aperitif, or nightcap before calling it a day. Complex,
    and thought provoking. Another winner from Mr. Pease.

    Goodnight, all.

    Today's installment is C&D Manhattan Afternoon:

    Upon opening this tin, I was greeted, or accosted, by the smell of
    freshly hewn grass. Not just mown grass, as this was "all up in my
    grill", but I digress. Pressed cake cut into strips. Lit fairly well, and
    shockingly didn't have that ash taste that I was expecting. This
    needs some drying time for sure. Aroma wafting up from my bowl
    was pleasant enough, but that's all I got out of this one. No flavour
    to speak of. All VAs and a non-existant taste? Bollocks!!

    Ugh, three more bloody C&D tins to go, but I must....for science!
    Or, at least, for everyone here. :goodjob:

    Cheers

    I just opened up a tin of GLP Embarcadero, an Oriental mix of Red Virginia and Izmir. Tin aroma is excellent, but moisture level a bit high. I recommend drying this out a bit before packing. Flavor is interesting, like smoking a straight Virginia with condiment sprinkled all over. Personally, I would have preferred some latakia in it, but I will continue to smoke more bowls and see what we'll see...
