    Bought a pouch a few days ago, even though i could´nt imagine i whould like it (so far i´ve allmost only smoked aromatics), and i must say, the first bowl was, not very tasty, packed a new one a couple of hours later. by now í knew what to expect and it was somewhat enjoyabled, ang now after 5-6 bowls i enjoy it in a whole different way then i could imagine :)

    Surely i will now be openminded for other virginia flakes, next up will probably be MacBarens. but with the price in mind, i will probably from now on never let it run dry before i buy a new tin or pouch, even if im still a sucker for supersweet aromatics :)


    Stay curious and keep puffin´ :bing:

    Don't give up on OGS or anything new. Try them with different pipes, or jar them, let them age a bit, and try again maybe in a few months. Your tastes change and you learn more as you go along. I have come back to a few I didn't like later and enjoyed them.

    Me and Carter Hall is a perfect example of this. Just couldnt get it the first time, but then after a few bowls in a cob, my mind was changed.

    It was the same for me and McB Plumcake. I still can't stand that s**t. But OGS is a good one, stick with it.
