    Kendal Plug ( one of my regulars ) is unsliced Best Brown, no topping or flavour added. If someone is cutting the plug up - and selling it as 'Cut Plug' it will be the same as Best Brown flake......or be something else!.
    What is Semois like?.......like nothing else!, my variant is light brown ribbon cut, looks a bit like Burley, strong, and at the start has a cigar -like taste, gets sweeter as the bowl progresses, very different - but IMO a fine smoke!....and quite a substantial nicotine kick!

    Puffing on some more of that custom blended vanilla I got from Riegel's last weekend. I think a week in the pouch has helped, and I've discovered that taking the tiniest sips (even smaller than usual for me) seems to be the way to keep it burning cool and yielding a good sweet flavor without souring. In my MM Washington.

    I suspect what light flavoring I'm detecting is the result of the shops apparent neglect when it comes to washing jars before using them for a new blend. GH Kendal Dark should be unflavored, but when I bought it there it had a distinct flavor similar to Dark Flake Scented or Bosun Cut Plug or something. As for the cut of this tobacco in question, it is not a flake or broken flake...it's unlike anything I've seen before....broken plug? There are scraps in there, like a very wide ribbon cut, but the primary attraction is the large chunks....think short flakes, but about 3-6 times the thickness of most SG flakes. You still have to slice it up as if it were a plug, but it's all cut up :msty:

    I suspect they're storing it in a jar that used to contain something like Grousemoor or Kendal Cream or something. The flavor isn't strong, but it's there.


    Edit: Just fired up a bowl of 2010 Christmas Cheer in the Ben Wade billiard. It's been a good while since I've smoked just a plain, sweet VA

    MacBaren HH Vintage Syrian in an SMS churchwarden meer. Tasty - smooth and smokey, with just a hint of what I can only describe as a peppery taste - not tongue bite though. My fault: a tiny gurgle (that the careful application of a pipe cleaner killed.) I was outside, but under my porch, and what sidestream I did get didn't smell bad. The girlfriend couldn't stand it, though.

    I'd like to see a picture of that sometime, Les. I think Baris are real sleepers of the pipe world.

    Still debating what this evening's smoke should be. I guess I'd better go peruse the cellar...
