    I've tried it in both my English pipes, it just tastes less gross in a cob, I love every other Dunhill I have had. This blend and me just do not match.

    Maybe it's not for you, though I like it well enough to find that idea troubling :)

    Do you like many other oriental-forward English blends? RRR, Presbyterian, Squadron Leader, etc.?

    SWR in a cob. Highly satisfying, as usual.

    As a strange experiment, altadis 507c rubbed out in a zig zag. Kinda goofy I know however not bad. Not something I'll make a habit of.

    Last bit of Two Friends English Chocolate in a Dr Grabow. This stuff was good, but I don't think I'll be ordering any more soon.

    35+ year old Mac baren symphony in an old comoy Canadian. Interesting. I'll say it's more like a prune than a plum. smells amazing but the taste is entirely different than the symphony I'm used to. I'm pretty sure this has been fermenting for a long time. Zero bite. I mean zero. anyone know if it's bad to be smoking this?

    Edwards Special Balkan...And the verdict is in. This one's going in the trash. Why do my hands smell like the dirty clothes hamper in a Tijuana brothel?

    Now I'm gonna go have diarrhea.

    Dondi I like both, I think I like the 400 a little more.... But I'm not sure I have to vocabulary, or palate, to say why. I like them both. These are tough questions and your are going to expose my tobacco appreciation ignorance:xd:

    GLP Sextant in a Wally Frank Canadian. I'm not usually one for flavored/cased blends, but I like this one pretty well. The rum casing is tastefully done, in my opinion. Only seemed appropriate to have a yo-ho-ho and a pipeful of rum as we near the end of the goofiest "holiday" in existence. This one has a surprising little nicotine kick to it, too.
