    Finished up that DGT'd FMOTT in a cob on a later smoke break this am and it was so good I loaded another bowl full after lunch.

    Nice big bowl of Jack Knife Ready Rubbed in the BST. I love this blend. Big, bold, perfect moisture to smoke straight from the tin, no need to rub it up further than it already is (though you could if you want to), strong and rich. What's not to like? Honest tobacco presented in an easy to work with manner, good taste and a decent price.

    I haven't tried the Ready Rubbed but I have tried the Plug and it is great. It really improves with some age too. I sampled some that I bought when it came out ( I had smoked some and jarred it) and it is doing fabulous now! I think it is a great blend and have stocked up on it for the future as well as for now! Now I will have to try the Ready Rubbed version as well.

    It's one of the few tinned blends the Smoker's Haven has right now. Their prices aren't far from internet vendors, either, so the addition of tax isn't bad when you consider there's no shipping for me to pay. I will have to go there and get a few tins to age, because it really is a good blend and a good deal and while it seems a hopeless cause, I'd like to see the place stay afloat.

    The other b&m that I go to more often has far more blends available in tins, though little in bulk and no GH, but the prices are really quite high.

    I haven't had the plug version, because this is all that the shop had and I just bought it on a whim. But I am really enjoying it right out of the tin and less than six months old. I can only imagine that a year or two of age would really make this special. And the ready rub is a little chunky but dry enough that it burns great without needing to rub it further!

    MacBaren Club Blend in a Peterson Sherlock Holmes original meerschaum. Just a very pleasant long slow smoke as I go through the mound of paperwork that I've been ignoring. Whatever happened to the "paperless society" that was forecasted as we got in to the "everyone will have a computer" era. I never owned a paper shredder before the paperless society happened and seemed to have passed me by.

    What about doing away with hard currency that was predicted when credit cards were invented?

    Afternoon, fellows.
    Smoking some Solani Silver Flake in a MM Gent. I don't often make heretical statements, but I'm beginning to think this stuff tastes better in a briar pipe.

    I think I had a similar problem with my choice. The Penzance smoked well in my clay, but the Ennerdale smoked much too hot.

    That's because you've never smoked it in a meer. :ohyh:

    50/50 And so to Bed and 10 Russians in a Comoy Oom Paul. I don't normally mix, but there was not enough left of either for a full bowl. They do OK together.
