    I had some Sunday Picnic out of my bent Big Ben this morning. There is something about Sunday Picnic that always leaves me slightly disappointed. It just seems like a very simple smoke when, given the individual components, it should be much more complex. I’m glad I only bought one tin of this but even that is a struggle to get through.

    I don't know what got into me last night, but I opened 3 tins that I haven't tried, yet. That's what staying up and feeding the TAD cat will do for you.

    First up, McConnell's Scottish Cake in a Pete 306 Aran. Good, solid VaPer taste. Burns great.

    On deck, SG Kendal Cream and Golden Glow. I cracked the tins last night and set out a bowl's worth of each at 7 this morning. Maybe they'll be dry enough to smoke this afternoon.

    Nesta, hows that ERR match? I want to try some as my Grandpa smoked ERR exclusively and I have never had either the real thing or the match.

    I've yet to taste the actual blend. That said, Altadis makes a great blend for the match. As to how it is as a replica of the stuff, I can't say. But on it's own merits, it is quite simply a great blend. Good, honest burley with a nice semi-aromatic cocoa thing going on. No bite unless you really push it, slow burning, tasty, cheap...everything about it is good. Similar to PS Cube Cut, slightly less prone to bite and less uniform presentation

    I'm enjoying back to back to back bowls of McClelland Blackwoods Flake today while sipping some fresh steeped tea...

    Just smoked 2/3 of my first bowl of Blue Mountain in my Winslow Volcano. This is some good stuff. Something in it reminds me of Shortcut to Mushrooms however I do not know what it is. Is it the dark Mountain Latakia? Not sure. What I do know is that I want to order more of this blend.

    Afternoon, fellows. Still getting some rain in these parts.

    Enjoying my first ever bowl of SG Kendal Cream in a Country Gent. Is this a honeydew flavor I'm getting? Honey and cream, hmmm.... I think I like it.

    Edit: After the first 1/3, things started getting a little boring. Do any of you smoke this stuff on a regular basis?

    I am looking forward to this one. Edgeworth RR is one I've been wanting to try. But knew I'd never find it. The match will have to do; and from your trusted review, will more than suffice, nicely. On the list it goes.

    Okay, now that I finished up that little bit of Foo Foo tobacco I had left (Blackwoods Flake) it's time to get back to the basics, country living, country cooking and Carter Hall in a Cob! Ya'll smile now! :beck:

    Got a couple of hours of boring report reading to do. I used to sneak one liners and absolute BS in to some of these so I'd better pay some attention to what I'm reading. Irish Flake cradling Irish Oak cradling University Flake cradling Sherlock Holmes in the xxl IMP meerschaum. 26C(79F)H51%. Wonder what the MTBF on a built in icemaker/crusher is, because this thing has been getting a heck of a workout recently.
