Having enjoyed (rather rapidly :dunno: ) some Kingfisher, and having found it both subtle and different than almost everything I've ever smoked, I have begun a sort of double-edged journey. The first is to find a replacement for Kingfisher, the second to push my nose just a little further into the Burley realm, where hitherto I have not ventured much. I've been enjoying McClelland blends a lot recently, revisiting some old faves and trying things in a few directions. Had been meaning especially to try some Deep Hollow, which sounds right up my alley - sweet, lightly aromatic, wimpy strength, Va based stuff. Therefore I added Grey Havens to my cart on a last-minute "oooh this is a Va/Per/Bur" sort of whim. Oops! I like. There are quite a few "hot air" 1 star ratings on tobaccoreviews, and I can kind of understand this. There's a woody sort of flatness about the burley, and surely if you suck on this blend too eagerly the reward is no flavor and a burnt tongue. But with a little patience and careful technique (or even better, basically ignoring the pipe and doing something else in the meantime) the stuff comes through. A very subtle topping, similar to the not-quite-vanilla taste in Virginia Woods, but a beefier smoke due to both the perique punch and the burley carrier. It's not Kingfisher, it's like if Kingfisher were made in Denmark. I wouldn't call it a contemplative smoke, especially, I don't find it changes much through the bowl, but it's a solid undemanding companion as long as you don't beat on it. Interestingly, the reviews of Kingfisher are very similar - some guys love it and others can only find hot wet air. So, if you aren't a big nic hound, and you want a great big bowl of something pleasant, Grey Havens might just be worth a look.
