    Well, I didn't have much choice. I don't like cherry blends, but of the ones I have tried, Spinnaker was better than the others, once you dry it out completely. And even then, I didn't care much for it. However - you excepted - I think if someone does like cherry blends, they're better off buying Spinnaker and waiting until it's bone dry to eliminate the goop and intense flavor than most of the other cherry blends. The highest rating I've given a cherry blend is two stars, so I had to rate it higher for cherry blend smokers based on that. My personal preference would be below that three star rating, but to base the rating only on my preference would be unfair to somebody looking for info on cherry blends.

    So call me before I turn into Dwaugh, JPBerg, DBear... I mean, a :old::wch:.

    Half way through this bowl of Royal Yacht in a 1982 black grain relief sandblasted three quarter bend W.O. Larsen Dublinish pipe. This is the last of the sample I got from Marker. Many thanks for the tobacco! I really liked this blend. Simply Lemonade chilled to the proper temperature with just a few floaty icebergs in the glass. The rest are resting up for ice water.

    Memo to Ruffinogold: when I get around to writing a review for Royal Yacht, it'll get four stars! :p:

    Gonna be busy, so I'm listing my next smoke a few minutes early: Edgeworth Slices (thanks Highstump) in an old grain relief, partly smooth full bend "V" shape bowl Ben Wade Prominence freehand with the letter A and the numeral 2 in circles and a black ferrule and stem. See you folks a little later!

    Well sleep isn't happening, just stuff I'd rather not have is. So I wended my sorry butt downstairs with the Pietenpauw Blasted Billiard, with the Bamboo Shank, personal fishing pipe of maker Jean de Toit the man behind Pietenpauw, it was filled with Scotch Flake and a lovely smoke. Having a bit of the Smoked Salmon, dill and cream cheese rustic spread on krinkle cut sweet potato chips and a diet Gingerale at room temperature.
