    So I am half way through my first bowl 0f St Bruno and it reminds me a bit of a good english banger cooked on thenbbq, with i bit of a caramelised onion tint. Not bad for otc on the way home from work..

    What do others make of it. As i have little to compare it too thus far. X

    Condor is fantastic. My mainstay now... but, beware, it'll ghost a pipe like nothing else.

    Yes, definitely get the Condor, but do yourself a favor and pick up a pouch of Three Nuns too.

    On a serious note, if I may veer off topic a little more - in the UK there is another fine flake, in the Condor, St.Bruno, Erinmore style - Ogdens Walnut Flake.....damn good stuff.....but no one ever mentions it!:msty:

    I've been wondering about that, but have given it a miss so far because I've not seen any mention of it.

    That means it leaves an aroma/taste behind that affects the flavor of other tobaccos. Some are good, some are really really bad, but if you like the tobacco, you might consider dedicating a pipe to it. Lakeland blends from Gawith and Hoggarth are notorious for leaving a floral note behind, and I think Condor is along those lines as well.

    Unfortunately, I'm out of St. Bruno. However,
    I've just received some Condor ready rubbed, AND
    a pouch of the long cut. :ohyh:

    Sorry Doc. :whis:

    I hate to tell you this, Phil, but the pipe you smoked the St. Bruno in will never be the same again. This could be a bad thing if you were really atached to the pipe and despise Lakelands tobaccos. However, it's a good thing if you're trying to justify a new pipe purchase: now you'll have to buy a new pipe because the old one has just been ghosted. And if you find you do like Lakelands tobacco, now you've got a pipe dedicated to the blends that go heavy on the "Kendal Sauce" but you'll still need a new pipe to smoke "regular" tobacco blends.
