    Thank you sir, you just made my mind up for me. I'm going with the Firedance in a Hackert cob.:)

    Burned a bowl of Stonehaven a little while ago in a Ardor bent dublin via the lostoppossum. Gosh I love that stuff.:bing:

    Believe me, I'm glad to have it. A friend sent me about 3/4 oz to try. I almost hated trying it because I know I won't be able to find more.

    Blackwoods flake!!!!! steamrolled it's way to a high up place on my fav list. What the heck. Gentle, delicious, more favorable room note. Absolutely stellar. I can see how this could be an all day smokage.

    Blackwoods, Blackwoods, blackwoods.....


    It was terrific in a cob and then subsequently terrific in every other pipe i own. Currently in a kaywoodie connoisseur, Happy weekend everyone.

    Had some Five Brothers, had some Kendal Dark, had some Kendal Dark with a little finely rubbed Bosun Cut Plug in it...been smoking my meerschaum a lot the past couple days. I think there is a very good chance that next time I end up getting a new pipe (which won't be for a good long while) I'll probably invest in a better meerschaum. I love the idea of it, and would like one that smokes a little bit better.

    Smoking Blend 300 from Ted's Pipe Shoppe (one of the local tobbaconists here in Tulsa, OK) in my Roma straight billiard. 300 is a great english style Burley, Latakia, and Oriental blend. Smells like leather in the bag and has a great almost herbal/spicy flavor. Which flavor is in the driver's seat changes as you go through the bowl.

    It is strong, but I also have quite a tolerance for strong tobacco. Six months ago it probably would have floored me. But it's not simply strong, it's really a very, very nice (if straightforward) burley blend. If slightly rehydrated (only slightly) it becomes a really smooth, pleasant tasting blend. I honestly think I prefer it to Irish Flake and possibly even to Old Joe Krantz. It tastes sort of halfway between your garden variety OTC and OJK as far as I'm concerned. It could quite easily become a go-to blend.

    I think for the average smoker, it could potentially be overwhelmingly strong, and many people do not like shag tobaccos. I really appreciate that while it IS a very robust, strong burley, it doesnt seem to have any dark fired leaf in it, and it smokes really gently as far as I'm concerned.

    Sounds good! I see P&C has it, and might have to get some. Now if I could just get them to carry Revor Plug....:cool:

    Smoked some McC Navy Cavendish in my Dunhill Shell Briar tonight with the Capt tonight at my house. I gave him a bunch of carry out samples and he smoked (and liked) Shortcut to Mushrooms in his ____ pipe.
    We had a few good beers and some Balvanie Caribbean Cask scotch.
    A good time was had by all.
