No problemo! I do really like Sillem's Black, though THAT takes some serious getting used to! It's a full lat blend....with a full on cherry flavor going on too. Like heavy on the latakia, but still a full aro. It's good, but it took me a few bowls before I could tell if I liked it even at all....now I like it a lot, actually! And its great for when I want to smoke indoors but don't REALLY want a straight aro, and need a little more robustness to the blend

Sorry for not smoking anything new today ... I got my mind stuck in the world of Comics .. lol . I smoked one bowl of H&H in the ghosted H&H kaywoodie . I will smoke the #4 blend tomorrow and will write a " review " .

It's all good - I sure took my sweet time with it! I'm looking forward to your thoughts on #4, though, because of the blends I sent you, I think it's the best one.

Just a suggestion, though, for that blend in particular...maybe write your thoughts after the first bowl, and then I will reveal what it is. Just saying, it's not necessarily one you can just go to the store and pick up a tin whenever you want...

Well, I like it a lot...and not super old, but you'll be hard pressed to find another tin just like the one from which it came. It wouldn't be impossible, just difficult :)
You know I'm hating you right now , right !? Nesta , this stuff is fan freakin tastic :eek:, really is . You rubbed out a fire cured VA w/ Burley . This stuff so reminds me of Ogdens Walnut but it's not as strong , not that it's mild by any means .. it's rich ! It dosent have a topnote that I can tell and is damn near , if not a perfect blend . It burns perfect w/ a white ash , slow burning , cool and a full mouth of smoke . It has that " fire cured " flavor , that if over done , can taste kinda tar like .. this blend takes it to the edge but dosent go into the " tar pit " . The fire cured stuff masks the contents of a blend to me .. and thats fine , I dont care if it has so much of this or that . I'm a MB smoker and the MB products are clean and clear . I love fire cured leaf , like Ogdens Walnut , but I dont care for the Tar pit ... some times I do though , ya know .. like when yer in the mood for 1792 or a rope blend . My friend , I thank you for turning me on to this blend but I want to headslap ya cause , whatever it is , I guess it's real hard to get . Being you like this , I know you would really dig Ogdens Walnut . It's similar for sure but a bit more elegante . I've only had one bowl and am sad looking at whats left in the zip loc .. ya bass turd ..lol . If it's a C&D blend .... I would be amazed ! I dont think they could make something like this . If it's a McCl blend .... I could see that. It's done so well that I would tend to think it's from the UK or Germany , but I really have no idea . A wonderful fire cured blend if ever there was ! Thanks :th1:

My thoughts on the blend are it's darn near perfect, slow and cool burning. The subtlety of the beginning of the bowl will almost con you into thinking you're in for a mild smoke, but it builds in intensity and complexity in a way I have NEVER seen in any other pipe tobacco. In the end its super rich and a little spicy, with just enough nicotine to satisfy, too.....love the stuff!
