Well, I'm ready to put in for another TAD purchase soon. After experimenting with a bunch of different blends and finally settling on a couple of really dependable choices to stock up on, I have found I tend to depend on non aros. But occasionally, I still find myself venturing back out to some aro blends that I like for a change of pace. One of which is MacBaren 7 Seas Royal Blend. Several reviewers have noted that it's really just a fancy duplicate of Capt. Black Royal. So here's the thing. I want to find a very similar baccy, or something better than MB 7 Seas, that isn't so bitey. I really like that aroma, but it would be nice to find something that tastes better. I DO NOT want Capt. Black. I'm looking for a blend to try and experiment with as an interesting side note to my usual non aro rotation. For times when I need something pretty you see? But not Capt. Black, and not so bite prone but tasty. Yeah, that's the ticket. Thanks to all for your input. JG PS: Can any of you tell what the casing is on 7 seas royal? At first I thought vanilla, then later it tasted/smelled chocolate.
