    For me this is a nice and mild VaPer. Nothing extraordinary but heck it was enjoyable.

    The majority of Greg's blends are wonderful. Some okay, still others (very few) I will pass on. But most, at least in my experience, have been outstanding.
  3. Trinidad Espiritu is the one.
  4. Last night I had some Orlik Dark Strong Kentucky.

    Just finished my first bowl of Balkan Sasieni
  6. Just finished some Captain Black Black Seas. Was a decent smoke too.

    Working on some MacBaren ODF right now.
  8. Had my first bowl of Luxury Twist Flake. Very enjoyable, though I don't think I'm ever going to be a Virginia kind of guy. It needed more "chunkiness".
  9. First bowl of Sun Bear, I am impressed. Glad I bought two tins.

    Very floral in a wonderful way, love the tin note, room note and it's smoking very smoothly. [​IMG]
  10. Sun Bear. Me too. I ran into some in my "local" B&M (a four hour drive) while in town for a meeting. Picked up four tins. I smoked to bowls on the drive home. A nice spicy Virginia blend with a hint of sweetness. It is aptly named.
  11. First time with some Macbaren HH Old Dark Fired. Pretty tasty. 3A9723AC-8990-4880-AE91-009437672643.jpeg

    It’s one of my favs too. Their ready ribbed is a bit cheaper but never tried it.

    I enjoyed some Quiet Nights last night and had another go tonight. This tobacco is fairly moist when the tin is just opened. (What is up with the 2oz sectioning?) In any case I've discovered the Savinelli balsa filters don't cooperate with dampness very well. I think this is the third time in a year where the filter has swelled to the point of making the draw far too hard.

    Going forward this and a couple other tobaccos will be smoked in the pipes with no filters or carbon filters.
  14. Sorry, it’s the ready rubbed that I got. Couldn’t resist a sale from SP on MacBaren bulk. I might buy some more while it’s still on sale.

    It’s a steal with that discount!

    Brief pause. Filter out and happy face.

  17. A pipefull of MacBaren’s Scottish Mixture after planting some shrubs and trees. Nice blend. Sweet and nutty with notes of caramel. 398B511E-3C36-415C-B24E-5110D5663678.jpeg

    One of my favorite lightly aromatic topped blends.
  19. Have been sitting on 10 tins of Escudo for two years now. What is a good/decent age before popping a tin and trying it for the first time?
  20. Buy two more, pop one fresh and one of the 2 year olds. This way you stil have 10 in the cellar, and two to smoke now!
