    [​IMG]

    Just finished jaring this stuff up and im sure theres more then 2oz in there. The grand fathers own smells soooooo goood and the for meerschaum only has a very nice old leather smell. But tonight im taking out some grandfathers own to try.

    The morning pipe toby has a very muted tin smell out of the bag. I cant smell much out of that one.

    Very cool! I love the fancy old-fashioned writing on the labels.

    Looks delicious, although your new tobacco obstructs the view of your awesome Sherlock Holmes set! :old:

    Grandfather's Own is a great blend. Not too sweet at all, and gives off an excellent room note. I especially like the taste of true cocoa...not some chemical! Good choices!

    I've wanted to try Grandfather's Own since I read about it on TR. I definitely want to know what you think of it.

    I got Grandfather, Irishman & Young Master last week. Grandfather is my favorite.
    Did you notice how (literally) soft the baccy is to the touch? Weird and wonderful.

    Had my 1st bowl of grand fathers own today at lunch time. Mix of cocoa and brown sugar or cinamon. Didnt need much dry time. Unfortunately it was a bit windy so i didnt get a good chance at experiencing the room note. The tin note is awesome, the best ive smelled up till noe.
