Hmm, was unaware they sold it in smaller quantities. Thanks!
I haven't found anything to compare with Velvet - at least not anything that is produced any more. Ruff thinks it smells like Play Dough, but I think it smells like leather soaked in the stuff you find inside a chocolate covered cherry. It's really unique, I think, and I love the stuff. (It's tied with Granger for my all-time favorite OTC). I haven't bought any in about three years because they stopped carrying it in these parts. However, Jay over at the Smoke Shack in Burleson is gonna try and order it for me. If he can't, I'll be ordering some from Mars next payday.
Not bad overall. Some are stellar!
But not enough to warrant the price being in a higher tax category and all of the other stellar blends available at similar pricing or just a few bucks more per pound.
