Gotta say I had my first great smoke last week. I've been smoking overly-cased garbage from a local cigar shop and not been enjoying myself too much. Went to a pipe shop down the road a ways and picked up some "Special Balkan" blend by Edwards and also got some "Tavern" from the free sterling tobacco deal. These two tobaccos really blew me away. Tons of flavor but didnt taste chemically (or like hot magma for that matter). Smoked clean, dry, and mostly cool. Tasted and smelled what I always thought tobacco should taste like. Super relaxing and great with a good IPA on a Friday afternoon. Looking forward to honing my taste buds some more!
