I was going through some of my old notebooks in which I keep records of tobaccos I tasted long ago, and then cellared. Unfortunately, the climate control mechanism that preserved these manuscripts went on the fritz last month, and a few pages suffered damage. As my archival assistant and I tried to reconstruct the evidence, we came upon a curious entry that we cannot match to any of the mason jars on the shelves. If anyone can help my identify this blend, I would be much obliged.

Thanks in advance,
WK

#778-54j. A ribbon cut with a hint of hazelnut and Virginia. Bland County bottomland, maybe? Tin note is robust but lacking. Charring light flares then dies. Nice packing capability. Second gives a fizzling lat kick that yields into soft butter pecan tones. No bite, just a teasing tickle. Undertones: Anise, pine tar, sodium nitrite. Overtones: extra virgin olive oil, marischino cherry stem, sodium nitrate. Reported room note: Shrimp scampi, jaegerschnitzl, Mepmphis pulled pork, and wildflowers. Overall impression: Cellar. Overall rating: 4****.

Sounds like one of my own blending experiments.

Sorry - I thought I threw all that stuff out. Don't know how you got it. But I named it "An Evening At MCL".

By the way, WK, if you can tell the difference between sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite, you have a far more developed palate than I. I got nuthin'.

You should get in on the blind review thread. Any chance you were smoking this in a restaurant when you did the review?

Some rim charring is to be expected.

Iffin you figure it out, let me know. I'm not adverse to avoiding blends on recommendation. :)
