    I think this week I am going to spend some time revisiting these 2 and trying with different pipes; meers, cobs, briars, etc.
    I "like" these 2, but do not "love" them like many here do.
    Maybe since it's been awhile since I smoked both, I will see if my like turns into love or I find a good pipe to smoke them out of.
    I will report back soon.

    Smoked some Blackwoods Flake in my MM General last night and it was good. I liked it a little better than I remembered. I will take my rating up from 3 to 3.5 (out of 4).
    Will smoke some more out of a meer tonight.
    Still didn't "Wow" me, but closer. lol

    Mings - Stonehaven sucks. It's only hard to get garbage that people hang in front of the rookies to make 'em think they're missing something. Hype. Overrated. Pipe tobacco balderdash.

    Only if it's aged, thanks very much. I prefer Stonehaven with 5-7 years on it. Am just now dipping into the '07.

    Well smoked some Blackwoods in 1 of my meers the other night and it was still decent. No more than a 3.5 tops (out of 4).
    Started on some Stonehaven last night in a cob. It too was slightly better than I remember it and might bump it up to a 3.5 (from a 3).
    Still don't "love it", just "like it alot"> lol
    Will go for Stonehaven in a meer next.
    I can see where this would be better aged and will put some away for a few more years.
