|Subject: I've been sampling "Esoterica Dunbar". Fri Jun 01, 2012 6:40 pm|| |
The last 2 evenings, I've been smoking some aged Esoterica Dunbar, in my Savinelli churchwarden, for my relaxing, late night "watch a movie" smoke.
The first night, I couldnt quite tell what I thought of it, but man, last night it was a really smooth Va.
The reviews say it has 7 Va's in it,, and a little Perique.
I havent quite tasted the perique yet, but I will be looking for it tonight.
Its a ribbon cut, and I guess I have been getting used to the flakes, so when I first loaded it, I may have not given it enough credit for that reason alone.
So far , its not too sweet, and not too spicy(perique), and its not strong and harsh, but yet its not bland or boring...Its just really good and enjoyable.
I will be trying to pay more attention to it as I smoke tonight.
But, I do like it enough, to where its on my list to buy more along with "Dorchester" which is another Esoterica blend, and the reviews say its a bit sweeter, which I like in my Va's.
I notice they are both "Sold Out " ,everywhere I look, so I guess I got bombed with one of those "FVF" class baccys.
Good Stuff !!!!
