    Is this really another holy grail? I've had Stonehaven and FVF- neither of which I loved. What's the story on HV?

    The hype is driven by the scarcity. It's a pretty good blend that is very hard to find. At least it was until recently.

    It is, in my opinion, worthy of the hype. I wish that it wasn't. It seems like it is becoming more steadily available however.

    It's hard to find because BradNTX is hoarding the whole supply nbg

    For some reason folks always seem to lust for things they can't get any more of - anytime soon! :ohyh:

    You're correct, my logic was incomplete. The hype is caused by the scarcity, and the scarcity is caused by Brad. It's all his fault.

    I like it as much as or maybe a little more than FVF. When I started smoking it it, it was easier to find. Unfortunately shortly after it went underground, now everyone want to get their hands on some.

    I bought 3 tins a few months ago. First impression- meh, it's ok... I have others I like better. I am going to let the other two tins sit awhile and will try it again down the road. For now I am not going to go snap up a bunch every time it comes available.

    My most recent tin was one of the "HALP MY HV IS DRY" tins. I was upset at first. However, I now find the dryness to be absolutely perfect and the flavor is unbelievable. Like brown sugar I tells ya, brown sugar!

    I smoked my first bowl of HV yesterday. Guess what, I smoked another today. Guess what I'm smoking tomorrow? I am loving this blend and I would say it is worthy of the hype. Mine was from the "dry" batch too, but I found it quite enjoyable and just right...right out of the tin.

    I'd like to get a tin, but only see that the 8 oz bag is available.
    8 oz is a lot of commitment :confused:

    Not really, you can easily trade off what you don't want.

    I'm am trying to find a place that will ship it for free- 4noggins doesn't have any.

    Penzance is delivered tomorrow- I might swap some of that for the HV. If not, I'll let you know & thanks for the offer!
