Well, today my tin of Ten Russians arrived and I am half way through the first bowl. From crumble to the first light, I was already enjoying it. Now that it is burning good, I am enjoying a room full of luscious smoke. Damn, this is good.

I almost hate to say it, especially after such a fuss for some Penzance, I think I am liking this blend better. I don't want to say that out loud, as I still love the Penzance, but I feel like I am cheating on it.

I think I am liking it due to the nicotine buzz I am getting from it.

I owe you guys a big THANK YOU for suggesting this one. I also have a tin of Pirate Kake to try in the morning. I hope I don't end up in a three way love triangle, or do I? :)

You will have to put "Stimulus Package" on your TAD list. Glad you like 10R! Me too:)

"Private Stock" is good too! But 10R & Stim-Pak are total winners imo.

Puff... Then there's Dan Bill Baileys Balkan Blend (under $30/# @SP for now)...it's real good too!

First thing when I woke up this morning, I was craving a pipe full of Ten Russians, before I thought to fix a cup of coffee. I'm going to try Pirate Kake today. It's going to be a good day.

I've only recently had my first taste of 10 Ruskies and Penzance. So far, I prefer the Ruskies. I certainly like the Penzance and see why people love the stuff but I like the Russians better, simple as that.. tobaccos don't tend to be jealous critters, you can love as many as you like. In fact you will love them even more because you won't get bored with them. When I was young, before HIV, I always had three sometimes four girl friends going at any one time. Each one was loved for different reasons and I never got bored with anyone. The ladies do get jealous (if you're foolish enough to get caught) but the tobacco won't. A love triangle with tobacco is a beautiful thing. With lovers, it is potentially dangerous keep your runners close.

Yes sir! Ten Russians is fine stuff. And, as McNutz says, you can sample as many as you like. After smoking Ten Russians for a while, I find that I may want to go back and try University Flake. Let myself study the Virginias for a week or so, then maybe migrate back into the lat blends. Maybe fool around with the Frogs first, or try some Odyssey, or something new, and eventually back around to the 10Rs. It does sometimes feel like a journey. Each time you discover different things about a certain tobacco, and you start to be able to discern the different tobaccos and flavors in a particular blend. It's an interesting quest and time is on your side. The cool thing about this thread is that I just found a couple of new tobaccos to look for, namely: Stimulus Package and Pirate Kake. That TAD list keeps growing.
