    OK, I stole the words out of one of Ruff's posts - but these are almost the exact words my wife used to describe the SWRA I smoked this evening when I got home from work. Where as I thought it was good in a regular cob, tonight I loaded a big ol' MM General with some, and it was awesome cuz, I figger, the extra tall bowl gave the blend an opportunity to hit its stride and really shine. I for sure need to cellar a tub or two of this stuff! :bing:

    I got a pouch of this the other day from a friend, and I love it! I hadn't been able to find it here, but I noticed some the other day, I guess they had a hard time getting it, or someone asked them for it. Too bad all they had was pouches, I'm going to ask them to order me a tub.

    It's really all I smoke anymore. I look at the jars and the other tins, but I'd rather just peel the lid off the SWRA. When I inhale, I have to take another sniff to make sure it smells as good as I think it does. It does. I follow my nose. Lit, it is a smoothly, automatically, savory smoke from beginning to end. I am disappointed when the bowl is finally spent.

    With that said, I'm about to pack another bowl.

    It smokes well no matter how long it ages (not that I let it age very long), but the rich scent that the bucket exhales when I break the metal seal on a fresh tin makes me want to smoke it up one bowl after another. Smoked or unsmoked, this one is a reliable winner that will convert people to OTCs like no other. Nothing agains CH or PA (or any of the others), but SWRA is a very different, very pleasant experience that takes burley to another level of contemplative enjoyment.

    I like it a lot, and I thank ruffino for whetting my appetite originally. The blend sold itself to me from Bowl One, and I still can't get enough.
