    In My intro thread I had mentioned I had only tried one blend...Mac Baron BLB WHich I loved. WyoBob kindly offered to do a bit of horse tradin' with me and yesterday I got a bit of a care package in the mail.

    Couple oz's each of:

    Walnut
    Lane 1-Q
    Sugar Barrel
    Lane BCA
    Great Outdoors
    B27 Black & Gold
    SWR
    Prince Albert

    Frog Morton OTB
    A local Cowboy Blend
    Seven Seas

    Think I might have a bit of smoking to do?

    Wow, nice care package! A big :th1: to WyoBob for being so generous! I bet you'll enjoy that, but if you find the Walnut and Sugar Barrel not to your liking, you can send them to me.;)

    Now I'm running into a problem, I already knew I liked BLB, I also bought a tin of Mac B Plum Cake, and liked it. Now I've tried the Seven Seas and Prince Albert and liked both of them.

    I'm either gonna have to find some I DONT like.... or quit trying new stuff. I'll never be able to afford to like everything I put in a pipe.:xd:

    Just remember there are over 4000 blends plus the "mystery blends" b&m's re-label out there in the great pipe leaf map. Blaze your trails! :)

    If you could afford everything, it wouldn't be called Pipe and Tobacco Acquisition Disorder (PAD or TAD). Face it, you're as normal as the rest of us (which in some cases around here is damning with faint praise, I can tell ya... sheesh... somma these guys, fuggedabouddit....).

    Welcome to the ranks of the disturbed. Don't forget to stay for the cookies.

    Ruffino and I got all 36 blend of the Sutliff line and we're working on smoking and reviewing the entire line. It has been so much fun and what a fantastic learning experience. When you smoke to review you really pay attention to everything about the blend. It's been challenging and fun at the same time. Exploration is great. Sorry we've only gotten through 12 blends so far, but we've had so much going on lately. Life has just held us up. Enjoy those blends and Happy smoking!:D

    Well, I'm only able to try one a day since I work 12 hour shifts.

    Tonight.....OGS.

    Ding ding ding!! We have another winner!!!

    I can't explain the tastes like some here. Maybe eventually I'll be able to give a decent review, but I think my taste buds are still a bit dull from so many years of cigarettes.

    "Normal" is relative. And I aint never been relatively close to normal.....


    Cookies? Where???

    Someday.... I just listed the entire contents of my cellar!!

    Not yet, what, in my list above, might it be close to?

    OK, tonight we have P.S. Balkan Supreme.

    I've hesitated to try one of the Balkans, as a rule, I did not like the smell when I opened the bag........BUT......I went ahead and gave it a shot. And while it wasn't the "I like this" of the BLB, OGS etc....It wasn't bad. Definitely different from everything I've smoked so far. I dont know if these are an acquired taste, or a "like 'em or hate 'em" deal. But I believe I'll reserve judgement till I've smoked some more. One thing I will say is it certainly didnt taste like it smelled. I also noticed it didnt really curb my vitamin N deficiency as well as the OGS.

    On a side note, everyone in the house yelled in unison: WE DONT LIKE THAT ONE!!!" approximately 25 seconds after I lit the bowl.:xd: Might be something to experiment with in private. (I feel so dirty!)
