So this past summer I was back in Minnesota visiting friends and family as well as, of course, my favorite B&M from when I lived there - The Golden Leaf. Right about that time, the Newminster line was just hitting the shelves, and I was very curious about the Blackberry Brandy blend based off some pre-release reviews at SP.com. I got an ounce, maybe two, along with a few others. The BB was pretty tasty, but a bit much for me, and definitely quite goopy. I figured I'd try again a bit later and, most likely, pass it off to a friend. Fast forward a few months, I was all ready to offer it to somebody here on the forum when I couldn't find it! I poked and prodded and dug, but it did not turn up. I thought maybe I had given it to my brother or something and had just forgotten. Ah well, not a big loss. Fast forward to now and it is, suffice to say, chilly out! I wanted some wool socks for lounging around the house this morning. Found one of a pair... where's the other? I poked and prodded and dug and... what's this under the bed... a baggie? Oh my goodness, it's the Blackberry Brandy! And now, having spent about 8 months hiding under my bed it's at a much more smokeable moisture level. I guess I'll give it another shot. Go figure.
