    I haven't tried BB yet but it is high on my TAD list. I like Lat bombs, especially Pirate Kake. I want to try it with the cigar leaf addition.

    Haven't given it a shot, my damn TAD list is sooooo long. Between pipes and cigars, my college budget stretches pretty thin

    OK, I just had a little breakthrough with ol' Billy boy. I had been smoking it in smaller to med sized pipes like my cobs. I was getting alot of bitter taste and it just wasn't pleasant. I never give up on a blend easily, especially one that is fairly popular. This evening I went all in and stuffed my biggest briar full and it was night and day different. I had a fantastic smoke. I kept it at a simmer and it was very much what I expected out of it. I did not get the harshness and bitterness I had previously experienced. What I did get was a nice lat blend with a decent amount of cigar leaf here and there.

    More experimentation to come. I am optimistic.
