    All of my Country Gents have changed their state affiliation to Kentucky. Kendal Kentucky, that is. They just can't get enough, and neither can I.

    KK in a CG.

    Afternoon, lady and gentlemen.

    Mr. Brog XL filled to the brim with the newly arrived Tewksbury & Co's Hobbit's Weed (Vanilla Cherry Aro) with some of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and just like that, three terrible months go up in smoke. :puffy:

    I'll probably enjoy PSF Nutty Professor again in my BC Rhodesian.
    I like it alot, I'll smoke my way through the 1/2 oz before writing a review though.

    First of the day/evening. Dunhill's Durbar in the Astas billiard. It's from an old, open tin - totally dessicated. Once or twice I've tried rehydrating a bowl's worth and smoking it. We'll see how this goes :)

    Awesome! I'd love to hear your thoughts. The 1st third of the bowl I really enjoyed the little perique spice that was present but was a little underwhelmed as it seemed pretty mild.

    After that it turned the corner and started to kick my butt...in a really good way though!

    I have to say that it was every bit as good as I hoped it would be. Like you, I was a little underwhelmed at first, but by the middle I understood why it's so popular, and I was sad to see the end of the bowl. It's an amazing blend, with no one component really leading the pack -- I've had other "blends" that don't really work together, but the blenders really hit the mark with Nightcap. I can feel the N, but it didn't knock me down, and the taste never bit me, even at the end. This one's going to the front of the rotation for sure. I may have more to say after I smoke a few more bowls, but I'm really happy with it right now.
