    Anyone else think it burns quicker than most? I cant seem to get more than 20 min out of my MM Country Gentleman.

    Such a bittersweet tobacco, tastes wonderful, hard to find, and now Burns relatively quick. Buggar.

    I don't recall thinking that when smoking SG FVF. Try rubbing it out a little you'll get more in the bowl.

    Are you rubbing it out or stuffing it? I would think not rubbed out it would last longer. I just smoked FVF in a KS Savinelli got about 45 minutes out of it, I rubbed it out. Have not had it in a cob this year. My MM CG bowl is pretty narrow and I only get about 20 minutes out of it loaded up with Carter Hall.

    I smoked a bowl last week, folded and stuffed in a larger Pete. Burned for about an hour. But mine isn't any of the recent product, so I don't suppose it holds any bearing on your experience.

    I fold then cannonball/knead in the palm of my hand so it's not quite crumbleflake but there are leftover bits perfect for the top layer and lighting... I guess it's about as subjective as everything else huh
