Made the mistake of smoking some Royal Yacht in the pipe I had most recently smoke Lord Methley's Cherry Nightmare. Eww... let's place that one in the "to be cleaned" queue.
Cherry Nightmare. I like it! Oh, wait...I DON'T like it, and don't say I didn't warn you. (The metallic shielding in which I encased it for transport should have been a tip-off in any case.) I hope you haven't experience too much damage and that your taste buds return to normal in the near future. The symptoms pass in a the matter of a few short days.

Just enjoyed a extra large bowl of the wife's homemade potato soup, (her great-grandmother's recipe). Sneaking out to the deck for a small bourbon glass of Jameson and FVF in the Savinelli. Now, that's what I call desert!
I pulled out my GL Pease Stratford from 2008. Either my tastes are evolving (yet again) or this stuff just keeps getting better. Maybe both? I remember opening this about a year and a half ago, and thinking it was just OK.
I had heard many times that the GLP stuff usually needs some age to show its true potential, and now I'm starting to believe it. The sad thing is I probably only have a bowl or two left. Time to throw some in the cellar!

That's a good one in my book too, Troy. I bought some after seeing Dublinthedam's video review and have smoked through several tins since then. It's a very light aromatic (strawberry, I think) on a strong Virginia base. In fact, more Virgina tobacco flavor than strawberry. Nice choice.
