    Shortcut to Mushrooms in the GBD 9665.

    This is a fantastic combo. I think I just found my new favorite aromatic blend.

    It tastes like mushrooms!!! How'd they DO that?

    I love that stuff, but it bites the heck outta me!

    It's been a while since I had an aro of any type, and I'm sure the wife is sick of smelling Latakia or straight Va. Smoking some Stanwell Melange in a rusticated Ascorti Business 3/4 bend.

    You post about this tobacco so often, sir, I'm going to *have* to try it soon. I love me a black cav aromatic.

    Today's commuting bowl was Brigadier Black Alamo. Wonderful stuff, amazing taste and aroma for such an inexpensive blend. Highly recommended. Burns dry and cool, very tasty.

    After some reading I'll fire up the Freehand with some Dunhill Flake.

    I had some that was 6-7 years old and still bit me. If you like Autumn Evening, try McClelland's Town Topic.

    Perhaps mix it with a burley that doesn't? It may get rid of it or at least lessen it to a point where it won't bother you. And I can't imagine it changing the flavor much.
    And I shall look into it.

    I'm actually still trying to decide which 7 Seas I like best, so I'm smoking all of them a lot before I place a Black Friday SP order tomorrow. Maybe I'll just order a pound of each... :)

    I was actually going to place an order with them today, but for some reason I could never reach the part of checkout where they take my CC. Always re-routed me to the back to the beginning and logged me out of my account. Meh. Maybe I'll try again...
