    Many happy returns, Yin Yang. I hope you enjoy your special day.

    Right now I'm enjoying a kitchen blend of CH/Cherry/Santee in a Kaywoodie canadian.

    Just went down to the local tobacco shop and bought a tin of Mac Baren's London Burley. Great stuff! I'm still new to this, and I've definitely picked out some of my favorite blends that I have been smoking on for the last couple of weeks or so. Most of the blends are a combination of tobaccos, so I still lack the knowledge about which tobacco flavors in them appeal to me. After smoking this London Burley blend, I can safely say that it is the burley that I am so fond of. This is the common flavor in all of my favorites. I love the nutty, grassy, chocolatey taste of the burley. This one is mixed with a smidge of Virginia to sweeten things up a touch. Highly recommended, though by a noob, so I guess you should take my recommendation with a grain of salt!

    H&H Stogie in a Bang Billiard - jury is still out for me on this blend. So far I am not getting much more than an ashy taste. This is the second time I've tried it. May have to try it in a meer to better get a handle on its flavor.

    To you and Andrew-

    Of course it is! Cheap booze is never out of style! Hence, my choice of Colt .45! Now, goin' old school, I could always get a handle on some moonshine...but then, the missus would (once again) show me who's boss! (By drinking me under the table.)

    CH in my Falcon.

    they didn't stop making it, you just reached an age where you could purchase your own tobacco and stopped buying it. 17 year olds have been drinking that koolaid flavored everclear since roman times and will continue to do so after we've learned to build artificial planets.

    oh yeah, trying to chainsmoke my 1792 in the orlik since apparently the PandC order from last night will be here tomorrow... hurray quick shippin

    Thanks for posting your thoughts re Escudo vs Medallions! I've got unopened tins of both - will do my own taste test soon.

    Now smoking my custom blend of Spilman and GLP Robusto in an Aran bent billiard.
