    I just got back from a smoke break and it was one of those smokes that tasted so good I didn't want it to end. I was smoking Reiner's Long Golden Flake in a billiard. I've smoked that blend before but it has never tasted as good as it did this time. This blend is similar to Orlik's Golden slices but, IMHO, it's much better.

    I'll have to go back and try this blend again. I kinda thought that it was boring when I first smoked it and not worth the price tag.

    However, I felt the same thing about Orlik's Golden Slices and now I love those!

    I had that experience on Saturday with a Falcon full of Nightcap. Best smoke I've had all week. I was almost a little sad when it was over.

    We all like a good smoke, but don't you really keep at it just for those perfect ones? I think maybe I do.

It's the same thing w/ Ogdens Walnut but in a Hulk kind of way ... I just grunt , not much speakin ... kind of an Grruah . I love those blends so much ... they are mind benders . Heinrich Kentucky does it too :th1: ....... ENJOY !

    They times are memorable. Sometimes I'll be reading out by the lake smoking something that I just randomly chose and I'll find that I'm at the bottom of the bowl and half an hour or more has just passed by, a page hasn't been turned.
