    GH BB2 in a Falcon. IMHO, this isn't
    nearly as good as BBF, and it had a
    distinct "McClelland" slant to it. Sort
    of ketchup/vinegar hints. I'm sure it'll
    be toned down in a few years, but straight
    outa 'da tin, I'm not impressed. I'll
    throw this one back into the cellar and
    let it mature a bit.

    Wow, I've never noticed any kind of vinegar tin note to BB2. It's probably my favorite "everyday" blend most of the time...it could stand to be just a touch stronger in the nicotine department, but other than that I think it's virtually perfect. I only wish that GH would start tinning their Dark Flake Scented and Bosun Cut Plug. I prefer the quality of the tinned flakes I've had from them to the quality of the bulk flakes, in terms of cut and such.

    To each their own, I suppose. I wish I was lighting up a flake of it right now, come to think of it :)

    I just took a knife and some scissors to some Cumberland Sweet Twist and pretty finely (though roughly) chopped it up. I made a mix of about 2/5 twist to 3/5 Lakeland Brickle Fortissimo and am letting the two mingle for a little while before smoking it. I think it will be a good mix, super strength and deep, dark, earthy burley flavor from the twist mixed with the mild, floral, spicy notes of the Fortissimo.

    I also mixed enough for a single smoke with some PA, about 1/4 twist to 3/4 PA. Loaded up my Stanwell billiard for the morning. Hopefully I'll feel up to smoking it in the morning. If not, I'll just smoke it in the afternoon after work.

    Morning all! Just enjoyed some Squadron Leader in a bent Country Gent. A very fine combination; I wish my CG was a little bigger and could hold more of this fantastic tobacco.

    I do think GH BB2 does have a slightly vinegary tin note to it but it also has more flavor and complexity than SG Best Brown flake. Both are very good but I prefer GH BB2 and can't wait to see what a few years of aging does to it.

    More Erinmore Balkan Mixture in my Parker Rhodesian. I promised myself I would only buy more tobacco when I run out of one of my blends... The more time I spend here the weaker my resolve becomes.

    History in a cob: Tales from the leavin's jar. Mmm, not bad for compost! :)
    The jar seems to have finally recovered from when I allowed a scintilla of an iota of Ennerdale in there. Never again!

    Old Joe Krantz in the GBD. Spicy, tastey, strong :D

    Also some of the fluffiest ash I've ever seen from a pipe tobacco.

    Just at the very tail end of my cold now. Hopefully it will be gone by the end of the week, cause a couple of really generous members here have sent me some cool samples I've really looking forward to. Rattray's Red Rapparee, Dunhill EMP, Bolkan Sobranie, some Presby, and the most exciting of all.....Dunhill Durbar! Super excited for that one, I can't wait :ngty:
