    I will be going to the garage now to pick up a empty mason jar. Clean it up and then ill open this baby up. This has been probably the most anticipation for a tobacco that ive had. Ive placed this tobacco up on a pedistule and i really hope that i wont be dissapointed.

    I tried Stonehaven for the first time a couple years ago, maybe three years ago. I have a little bit cellared with a little over two years of age on it. I smoked a bowl of some freshish stuff a couple nights ago and have another four or five bowls left from a trade a while back. It's good stuff

    I do. It was a gift or a trade, I forget which. Same guy sent me some Germain's Rich Dark Flake, though. Same stuff, both amazing.

    It's definitely a very different smoke. Different from anything else I've tried. I like it a lot...hope you do, too!

    Holy wetness. This tobacco is not moist its wet and just touching it makes it break into pieces.

    Make sure to dry it and use some of the methods of smoking suggested here. It will be good.

    I'm waiting for Pipes and Cigars to get it back in stock in bags, along with Dorchester and Dunbar. I wonder how long I'll have to wait and am I young enough to see that day? Well, the good stuff is worth waiting for. And I'll take the advice of others on how to prepare it!

    So i pulled out a bit of tobacco to dry out for 2 hours and after i put the kids to bed for their afternoon nap i loaded my meer. The tobacco packed up nicely and i went out. I had a very enjoyable smoke. with 2 hours of dry time i didnt have any relights issues so im happy about that.

    I was a bit affraid that it was going to be too strong for me nic wize but it was good. I got sometimes some sour cherrys and sometimes some sweet cherrys. I will for sure enjoy testing this tobacco more with other pipes. For now all i can say is that this was a good 1st bowl and that my expectations were not shadered.

    Yes and i even had a second bowl of this stuff before the ufc pay per view. However this second bowl had less dry time and i had many relights.
    I can say that this is in the top of my smokes and the top flake that i have at the moment.
