I went to my B&M today and as I pulled into the parking lot I told myself that I was only there for a cob and some pipe cleaners. I walked in the store, and much to my dismay, the clerk was busy helping someone else. This means I'm going to have to kill some time while I wait on her to finish by perusing the store. I tried to stick to the pipe section cause I'm a lot less likely to buy a pipe than some tobacco or some other accessory. Needless to say, it didn't work. I looked up and saw a tin of squadron leader sitting on the shelf. I've been wanting to try this for a little bit but I told myself I had to finish my other blends first (I don't really cellar or stock up, not my style). Well I couldn't talk myself out of it so I ended up buying it (it was the last one they had so I couldn't leave it there all by itself). On the drive home I told myself that I couldn't open it until I finished my other blends. So I got home and set it down on the workbench and started working on finishing my rusticated cob project (I also found some Fiebings leather dye while I was out). It took every bit of about ten minutes and the tin was open and I was loading a bowl. That being said, I am VERY happy I opened it! This stuff is good. The tin was a little on the moist side but it's smoking quite nicely! My Frog Morton's have a new challenger for my favorite blend! Although, now it occurs to me that I shouldn't jump to conclusion about my favorite. I'm sure I will see someone else talking about another blend soon enough that will make me want to try it, and once I do I will probably love it too.
