    OK, loaded up a bowl of Jubilee in my Mario Grandi Freehand, I really do like Jubilee, this is darn good smoke. I can't analyze tobacco like some folks can, but I know what I like when I smoke it. This stuff is superb. I think it will be in my regular rotation.

    Potts, I had a friend over the other night, a really well-versed dude in terms of tobaccos. This is a guy why I have taken out some pretty incredible tins for, really rare stuff, and he'll say "Oh yeah, that's pretty nice, a little sweet..."

    So the other night I pulled out the Jubilee, and he loaded a bowl, and lit it up, and was ... silent! Woo hoo!

    Then the comments came: Sharp. But that's good. Sharp is usually fine in a second. What is that deertongue in there?

    I said I didn't know. Can says Va, perique, latakia, and I suspect that the periqe is doing the talking....

    but it's a damn nice smoke. Not super heavy, but tasty and full, and just right for sweetness.

    I've had a tin of Jubilee in the cellar for a month or so, decided to crack it open last night after reading this thread. Different than what I'm used to, but good.
    I don't think the flavor is deertongue, that's different to my taste buds. (if you want deertongue, try C&D "Crooner")
