This weekend my sample of 1776 Tavern showed up (incurring the wrath of Mrs StoneDog until I assured her it was a FREE sample. ). So this morning I tried it in my trusty Country Gentleman. I have to say there is a lot going on in this "Tavern" from 1776. It is very good but I think it is a blend to savor and contemplate in quiet vs a blend to absently puff on during a long commute. I'm glad I have the sample and I have a feeling I'll be ordering a batch in the near future.
