    Yeah , I'd like to try the Dark .. it says " Blended Kentucky leaf " ... what scares me is the word , Lakeland , in the Title . A soapy Kentucky , I wouldnt be into , but an SG Dark Kentucky w/ out soap ... sounds pretty damn good:th1:

    Fluffy :eek: ... bummer . Thats a shame . When I think Kentucky ... I like to imagine a broken flake or a ruff cut . I've never had Newminister Va .. so I didnt get the jist . How bout this , is it kinda along the line of McCll E. Carolina Ribbon ?

    Not saying this is the case here - but it should be remembered that both Kendal concerns produce blends (often quite coarsely cut) that are primarily intended for hand rolling, or the pipe.
