The Dreaded Mixture 79

Wow.....just wow....

Let me start out by saying that I like a good aromatic. I even enjoy light Lakelands and some odd mishmashes. This was none of the above.

Moist in the pouch, its a mixed color cube cut and has the consistency of a brownie. I grabbed my $2 MM cob (and left the filter in) and filled it up. It packed easily enough and took three lights to get going.

Initial draw had flavors of anise or liquorice. However...as soon as the bowl got going the flavor quickly turned. Now it was a hot and bitey smoke and was ridiculously bad. I quickly backed off and tried for an ultra careful smoke. It tamed the bite, but the flavor was still like burnt dryer sheets.

Halfway through the bowl and I had to quit. This was truly the worst baccy I've smoked to date. I just brushed my teeth for twenty minutes and I still taste it. I'm throwing out the cob!

2 dollar cob? Probably the Chinese formaldehyde cured cob to blame since I have heard nothing but glowing reviews of this beloved blend.

No!! Stick the stem in the ground in the garden and the bowl acts as an insect repellent. Just keep children and pets away from it, although instinct should kick in and they'll avoid it anyhow.

M79 is one product that will make you brush your teeth! It still amazes me how this stuff is even for sale still?

Re: The Dreaded Mixture 79

The second I buy a cob, I'll be buying Mixture 79 to go in it. Everyone hates it so much, I've got to see what all the fuss is about!

Actually, we're passing a pouch around. It got lost in transit to me, so I bought a new pouch. I'm not sure who's next for this 'Hall of Shame' pass, but it's all boxed up and ready to go.

Oh man I would so sign up but I'm moving in 5 days. And I'd just feel terrible if I was responsible for losing the pouch and slowing the pass down (everyone screams "OH PLEASE! PLEASE LOSE THE 79! WE BEG YOU!")

I thought the idea was to pass it around until it was GONE! You're going to replay this nightmarish masochistic exercise from the beginning? :eek:

Re: The Dreaded Mixture 79

I still have nightmares...

Everyone that smokes a pipe should experience this tobacco so that you can appreciate what you have in your cellar more.
