I am just hoping that it is just so different to me that I am not liking it at this point, and as my palette opens up to the wide array of flavors available I will eventually be able to enjoy these other blends.
    I don't know that they're for everyone. It's sort of odd, I dabbled with a pipe twenty years ago, but only came back to it recently. I tried a few aros and liked them, but then I had a sample of Penzance. I was blown away!

    OK, now I must revise my statement. I know this is a great baccy so I couldn't bring myself to just shelve it. So today I pulled about a half bowl of it out and mixed it with half bowl of LNF, let it sit for about 30 mins then loaded 'em up. Well I must say it has come alive for me. A beautiful array of flavors now rolling over my tongue and when retrohaled just fantastic. This will definitely be a blending I revisit often, and glad I just didn't give up on it.

    Oh yes! The first bowl I dried for about 15 minutes. I had a difficult time keeping it lit but the bowl was decent. Couple of days later, (I usually don't do this), I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds to dry it a bit more and it made all the difference in the world. Burned very well and was easy to maintain. Definitely an enjoyable flavor to me. I like the "tartness" (I think this is a better description than my usual "tangy-ness" I typically use), and zero tongue burn with this one. I was able to slowly sip it and it really mellowed me out. I'm not too good at describing the flavors I get with a smoke so I won't even try. I'm assuming everyone else does the same thing, but I usually sip on a pipe and retro-hale throughout trying to place individual flavors and such. Most often I can't place individual flavors but there's no mistaken if I consider it a worthy blend or not and this is definitely one in my book.
