    So I picked up a couple of cheap cobs today at the local B&M, and loaded up some Presbyterian Mixture. Nice smoke, really enjoyed it. One of these days I'll learn how to give a proper review, so others will know what to expect. But for now, try it if you haven't. Good stuff.

    Well, here, I'll review it for ya. :thumbsu:

    This is an oriental mixture similar in nature to Early Morning Pipe - not tremendously strong in terms of nicotine or latakia, but pretty big on taste. It's fairly sweet, with the orientals adding an almost black-tea sort of taste, and a touch of latakia just rounding things out. Much less sharp than a mixture like Red Rapparee or Campanile, for example.

    Hidden in the smoke a guy gets the occassional taste of something almost plummy, but it comes and goes for me.

    I suggest drying it just a bit - it's usually very wet in the tin.

    :goodjob: Yeah, that.

    Actually, I think Ivycap must have dried it a bit. It wasn't "wet" at all, and burned very evenly and easily.

    It's one of the review tobaccos this time around. Check out that thread as some people have given some input on Presbyterian Mixture.

    So I gave this one another smoke tonight in a nice little briar this time, instead of a cob. Still smokes great. Even the girlfriend liked the smell.
