    Not a favorite but I think it is very good. Very complex blend IMO.

    I enjoy it. Smoking some right now, in fact. Kind of wish H&H blends didn't arrive so dry, but that's me and my preference.

    I love Magnum Opus, smoking it right now, really remarkably complex and balanced -- dry in three ways, two of 'em great: not sweet, and a nice, dry leathery mouth feel; the third not so much, it could use a tad of humidification. The world is full of too many great and different kinds of tobacco to smoke only one, but I could live for a long time on a diet of Magnum Opus. Exceptional.

    I have a couple sealed 8 ounce tins if you are interested.

    I've heard there is a difference between the bulk and the tins. Any truth to that?

    I used to get my MO on visits to P&C in Albany. Since they were sold and moved, I haven't been back to the store-front (still there). I do enjoy that blend.
