I was in the B&M the other day and a chap was buying a tobacco I had just been enquiring about. I asked him what it was like and he had nothing but good things to say about it. So enthusiastic was he that he took a pinch from his pouch and gave me a small sample for free. The tobacco in question? Murray's (Stokkebye) Irish Slices. My verdict? Absolutely vile. Glad I didn't pay for it! I would be interested to know if anyone actually like this. Despite being a newcomer to pipe smoking, I have tried many tobaccos and have managed to find a positive in every one (yes, even Borkum Riff) but the Irish Slices just did nothing for me. I really appreciated the man's gesture but should I ever bump into him again I think I'll turn around and run as fast as I can. On the plus side, I am now smoking some SG FVF.
