First I tried McClelland VBC, Vanilla Black Cavendish, and I didn't like it. It had a strong, flat flavor that took me days to place. It tastes to me (no offense meant, just what came to mind) like fresh asphalt. Next, on a whim, I threw a pouch of CB Dark in an order, and lo and behold, I like the taste! It's great except at the first, when you have to put out the flame after you light it, and later when it's time to clean the pipe. Pleasant room note, too. I'd rather avoid buying more CB Dark, so I was thinking about buying some Lane BCA. Sound like a positive move?
