    Blackpool smells and looks like it would be a liquorice powerhouse in the bag but it's barely noticeable in the actual smoke. A surprising amount of blends contain liquorice to add sweetness but the flavour doesn't seem to show up as much in the smoke. Might have to resort to the old standby of chewing good n' plenties (cough candy if you're British, or ouzo candies if you're Greek) while smoking the perennially prescribed bowl of Carter Hall in a cob.

    I have a friend who smokes anise flavoured cigarettes from Indonesia. They are horrible to me. Apparently it is quite common in some places. Personally I can't stand anise or licorice. My wife loves that very strong salted licorice from Britain. There is no accounting for taste.

    Lots of talk of anise blends, are there any blends with the red licorice? Like twizlers licorice ?

    Hey, I liked Paladin! Then they changed it, so it seems. Or, I came to my senses, but, how likely is that?
