Just recieved this in the mail today, I'm really excited to try them all!
You got some great blends there, hope you enjoy them all
Ah, I see you went with the English warning
labels this time, Tsurugi. Nice order! Enjoy!
Yeah, I don't love the pictures on the back with dead people and hospitalized babies and so on, quite silly really.
Anyways, I think I'm going to try the Dunhill first.
I tried the Dunhill My Mixture 965 and I thought it was lovely, smoked great all the way down.
Nice haul! Especially the Squadron Leader!
We had a period some time back when everyone on the forum was tasting SL, and I think the general opinion was to try this blend in a newly cleaned pipe... the better to taste the orientals.
Smoking SL in a pipe which has a heavy latakia or perique ghost may dilute the subtle yet complex flavors of SL
Thanks for the tip!
Tried Irish Oak an loved it, Mac Baren Navy Flake was nice and sweet, liked OGS too.
Today I'm going to try Full Virginia Flake and Squadron Leader. I cleaned a pipe yesterday and let it breathe until tonight for Squadron Leader, following the tip from Dondi.
Oooooh... Lemme know if you want to part with a pinch of the irish oak. Been wanting to try that for a while now.
Also the 965 is on my hitlist!
Tried Squadron Leader earlier, and really liked it, trying Full Virginia Flake right now and I'm absolutely loving it, it seems like I picked the right tobaccos to buy. :thumbsu:
All of those are great blends. You are going to have a great time with them. SL and OGS are my favorites.
Very nice haul, I wouldn't even know where to start lol please tell us what you think of the irish oak :cheers:
I'm horrible at describing tastes and reviewing tobaccos, all I can say is that I really loved Irish Oak, and thought it had a nice grassy(?) taste to it.
