One of the many nice recommendations from y'all for me, as a noobie, was Dan's Blue Note. I finally got to it this morning... NICE! It is very mellow, yet, I could taste something that reminds me of molasses or brown sugar, something like that. I was smoking it in what i THINK is an apple bowl. Lighting and keeping it going for the first half of a bowl was easy. However, I started having trouble in the bottom half of the bowl... i didn't finish the bowl as I was smoking it on the way to work and had to let it go out when i got here. I'm not sure what "bite" really is... I do still tend to smoke too fast, so I THINK i might have experienced it before, but not on this bowl. Is this one that I should typically let set out and dry for a while? Our relative humidity here runs < 30% (wreaks havoc on my guitars), so if necessary, i would think i could dry it out some relatively quickly. Thanks for this suggestion! Currently my favorites are Blue Note and a Cherry/Vanilla blend of unknown parentage.
