    By all means give the Irish Flake a go if you haven't already! Lovely stuff there. :puffy:

    When I began smoking a pipe I knew that somewhere out there was my ONE TRUE love -- er -- tobacco. It was just going to be a matter of trying a few blends and settling on THE ONE. It took a while, sometimes I can be a little slow on the uptake, but finally I realized it is the search and there is no final "find." There is a quote about life, that for me, applies to pipe tobacco as well.

    "Life is a journey, not a destination." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson​
    Now, having said that, right now I am really enjoying AJ's VaPer for a nice taste of Virginia tobacco with a little something extra and also find myself going back on a regular basis to McClelland 5125 (aka Coyote Classic) for a fuller, "English style" blend.​

    Thanks Jfro, I have tried that one before. It's going to take me a while to digest the new stuff I have. Too much tobacco (impossible) and too little time to smoke it!

    That's definitely going to happen as it was a toss up between that and 3P's last trip to my B&M. I just want to give the new stuff I have a fair shake before moving on. I'll def. report back when the Irish Flakes get smoked. Hey! St. Patrick's day smoke?

    Uh, oh. This was not what I was looking to hear, lol. And the nerve to quote RW Emerson! :byg:

    I like to avoid some journeys and find comfort in comfy destinations. I'm loyal (to people, places, things) to a fault. For me, I need to appreciate the journey's I do choose to take a little bit more. In terms of self-improvement both personally and professionally I definitely agree, being static, believing you've arrived - that's not so good for anybody.

    Cheers.

    Cube cut two Escudo coins tonight. Gravity fed it into the IB Pear and had a great smoke. A no re-light triumph. I'm still not sure about the Perique yet but the sweetness of the Virginias that kept popping through really kept my attention.

    I am currently turned on by the slight sweetness of the Peterson Sherlock Holmes (in a cob - not a briar). Also their Luxury Blend in either a briar or cob. You may want to try them.

    What's in the SHerlock Blend?

    I just had a good experience with SG Choc. Flake. Don't like the tin smell but the flavor to me is really interesting, more so than the Va's and Va/Pers I've tried. So... today I got a tin of Dunhill Mixture 965 and EMP. Tried them both and I liked 965 better. The EMP is prob perfect for an "EMP", later in the day I think I like something richer.

    This is a rather unexpected turn of events for me. I haven't had enough experience to know what it is exactly I like in Dunhill NC, 965, EMP and SG Choc Flake. I'm seeing the common factor as the Lat but I think the Lat is really light in all of those right?
