Once again, I receive a pouch of this from a well-meaning but non-pipe educated person. Once again, I smoked a bowl of it. Bland, but inoffensive. Once again, I mixed the rest of it 70/30 with C&D's "Kelly's Coin" and got a very nice blend. I'm telling you, a strong burley (Five Brothers should work as well as KC) can solve many ills. The KC soaked up the excess goop and added a nice tobacco taste, as well as some serious nicotine. This mix is something I could smoke all day, if I wanted... but thank God I don't wanna!
