    I just popped a tin and wow! it was a wet blend. I loaded a pipe full and got great flavor, but it was hard to keep lit. I started drying this blend out. Anyone ever try this blend? How did you dry this one out.

    It is one of the few I did not bother to dry out. I did not have much trouble keeping it lit from the start with a fresh can. Supprised the heck out of me. Having only 1 can of it I took a few months to smoke it. Treating myself a bowl every week or so. It popped and snapped a few times when I first lit it but then settled down to a nice creamy smoke. No more relights than usual with it.

    I am going to give it another try with a different packing method.

    I finished the Pete that had this blend in it since yesterday and it did manage to stay lit. Not a bad blend.

    I dont have much trouble w/ keeping the Sutliff blends going . It could be yours is real fresh . It's a good blend but I think they have better ones . The St. George is a stellar Aro and the South Seas taste great also . Their match blends to the old blends that are gone are fantastic ! Some better than the original

    I tried their "A Taste of Summer" last evening and found it wonderful. The Peach flavor really came through and I had no trouble keeping it lit.

    I enjoy CD when HoW was putting it out. I may have to give it a try. Here's an interesting site of the Sutliff line:

    I think the Sutliff CD blend outshines The H.O.W. blend by far . It's really an amazing blend . The Altadis site is awesome ... I started counting the blends one day but got distracted . They have a ton of blends . The z50 Black Cordial is probably the best Balck Cavendish blend there is . I always say it's what CB dreams about being .

    Sutliff Molto Dolce in a MM straight cob. First time trying this tobacco. Had to let the tin air out for a week. It smelled so strong and was wet. I am liking it so far. It left blotter marks on the paper I had it drying on.

    I got a tin of this with Nick's collection and I cracked it open the other day. In a way, that caramel-y-ness is reminiscent of a flake I love, but it has the easy of pack and go. Definitely very moist -- there was a lot of crackle and pop when I was lighting this up! Once it was going, though, I didn't have too much trouble, either. Two or three relights over the course of the bowl. An aro I definitely won't mind revisiting, at least through this tin.

    I smoked a tin a little while ago, it never really seemed to dry out in the open tin, even after a couple of months it still crackled and popped when I lit it. Not a bad aro though, so I just packed lightly and fired it up. It was my go-to morning smoke for a good while.

    Im stuck on thier Maple Street right now. I would like to say its part of my rotation but I havent been rotating bleds at all. Ive been smoking Maple Street almost exclusively for the last couple weeks. I picked up two more tins just the other day.
