So I stopped in at a local B&M to see what they had. Of all the local places they had the most selection. Half and Half, Carters, PA, 3 Star Blue and few others I forget. On the advice of the guy at the counter I tried a can of Mac Baren Virginia #1. I have only smoked one bowl on my way to work (30 min drive). I must say, at this early point I am not all that impressed. In the can it smells like hay with a slight tobacco smell. In the pipe it burns nice, stays lite pretty well, but I am having a hard time finding much flavor. It really reminds me of cigs, both the room note and the flavor. This is my first Virginia so maybe I did not pick a good one to start. I did order some Frog Mortons because of a suggestion on this board. Of course I will be giving this a more fair shot later on, I know I need to smoke it slow, I did not get any bite with this first bowl. BTW it was smoked in a new MM cob. Any input from the more well seasoned vets?
