    MY brother was in our local B&M, mostly cigar stuff and the gentleman working at the time was smoking it and my brother asked him what it was because the room note was so nice. Then my brother told me and I ordered some on line because my B&M did not carry it.
    I never smoked this type of blend before. It is very much like an English but you can smell the bit of scotch in the tin aroma. I ejoy it a lot! I will be ordering more in the future. Just something different.
    My wife says the room note is not that great but then she doesnt really like my English blends either. Not a dislike, but she'd rather smell my Boswells's Best or All Day Long.
    And yes, it is a C&D blend.

    Had a bowl of Shortcut to Mushrooms on my way school this morning (in my POS pipe), and when it was done, I wanted to keep smoking. Picked up a pouch of SWR (not bad, not bad) smoked that in my POS. Got to school, decided to skip class and go to the B&M with Dalton.

    Picked up a MM Dip and in that I smoked a bowl of FMOTT (that dalton bought), and bowl of SWR, both in my Dip.

    Then I smoked a bowl of Winding Road in my POS. A Good day all in all and its not even half way done!

    I like Kenyan, probably my favorite African coffee. Ethiopian has a little too much citrusy something or other to it for me. I'm assuming you've had it before, but if not, you should try Sumatran coffee, especially from Counter Culture Coffee. They have great product, and they treat their growers right. But the richness of that Sumatra, man, it's something else. Has almost syrupy body to it. Great winter time coffee.

    Afternoon, gents. Had a nice wakeup bowl of Wilke #622 in a Soren freehand this morning, now having some Wilke Nut Brown Burley in a DGE cob. It's either a spool or a Dane, but I get them mixed up. Has a wood plug in the bottom, if that means anything to the cob experts out there. This pipe really smokes very nicely, I always enjoy it.

    Hi MM,
    I am a coffee fanatic!
    Yeah, I like Sumatran coffee alot. I also will have some Ethiopian at times although it's not my favorite. I really like Guatamalan and Kenyan lately. Kona can be great also but of course very pricey and can be too light in body for my tastes. The Dominican Republic has been doing some good things with coffee in recent times too.
    I like Oren's Dailey Roast because I have been to their shops in NYC many times. They roast their coffee just prior to sending it out. It always tastes fresh to me.

    Paul

    I love Sumatran, I'm also really into Kona at the moment too. I find it has a wonderful natural sweetness to it.

    Escudo in my Savinelli Gulden Danske. Love the flavor, but every time this burns extremely hot for me. :cfsd:

    Sunset Breeze in a MM Legend. 6 months of sitting in a jar has done a good job of lightening up the amaretto. Now it's a pleasant tobacco on a sunny afternoon. 23C(74F)H22%
