Yesterday I received a suspicious ordinance, the detonation was on the megaton scale. I had no idea the Swiss had nukes!



From the size of this haul, I guess I had it coming.  Cool

The tobacco is all from Synjeco. Here's the rundown on the inventory of a most exotic ordinance.

Sam Gawith St. James Plug 250G (Large!)   Wink
Clegir Rope 50g
Holker Twist 50g
Grennodd Rope 50g
Bad Nun 50g (awesome name)
Bad Nun II 50g
Oxenfisl Twist 50g

Well guys, Thank you very much for your generosity and this most wonderful gesture. I have some serious piping to do here.

cheers

D&B..

Well done bomber, whomever you are! A most worthy target too. 

cheers

Lots of stuff there I'm not familiar with, nor have even heard of. I'll be very interested to get your review in due course Chris.


Cheers,

RR

Lots to enjoy there. Bad Nun, Greenodd, and Oxenfisl are all excellent.

Only through the combined, valiant international bombing efforts of many skilled bombers could a strike such as this occur to a most worthy target! Hip hip huzzah! cheers

Knowing full and well the drill, here's a handful of "somewhat better" pics of the damage.

Bad Nun - a reddish hued Virginia combined with what I am assuming is a decent amount of Dark Fired KY. smells sweet and smoky.



Bad Nun II - Obviously Similar to Bad Nun, seems a bit darker though. Smells like a meaner nun.



Clegir Rope - seems like bright VA's and perique. Nice aroma.



Oxenfisl Twist - Seems to be a darker Virginia twist, nice deep sweet aroma



Holker Twist - Another Vaper twist. This one is has some very spicy smelling P-weed.



Grennodd Rope - A thin Virginia perique rope. smells divine.



Everyone in their happy home... Cool



Thanks again to everyone involved with this drubbing, I am quite excited to smoke these exotic tobaccos.. Very Happy

If not mistaken Clegir is Greenod without perique... Or more properly Greenod is Clegir with Perique.

In a similar vein, I believe Bad Nun II is Bad Nun with some Perique

Enjoy!

Ah. Thanks for the clarification. I am looking at the descriptions on TR.com right now and Clegir is indeed listed as a straight VA and the Bad Nun's are listed as VaPers. Still, I swear I do smell dark fired in these.

They are, were, produced by Sam Gawith... I think.

Somebody hit me with Greenod. I can say it's hands down the best rope I've ever smoke, and I've smoked a lot of rope.

Good question. According to TR.com, Bad Nun, Bad Nun II and Holker are blended by "Kendal" with a country of origin UK.

With Clegir, Oxenfisl and Grennodd the blender is not listed and the origin is Switzerland.

Guess I assumed that they originated from G&H along with the Bad Nun flakes, and therefore had Lakeland scenting.

I'll be interested to get your review on these. As you may be aware, the L-character is not favored in chez Brewdude.


Cheers,

RR

Quick break down of the ropes:

Oxenfisl Twist: Thick rope of VAs - "Manufactured from different Virginia leaves, "spun" into a rope."

Clegir Rope: Thinner version of Oxenfisl - "Manufactured from different Virginia leaves, "spun" into a rope, but thinner than the previous"

Holker Twist: Thick rope VA/Per, Oxenfisl with 7% perique added - "Special Made for Synjeco by Kendal Manufacturers, this Tobacco takes the basis of Oxenfisl Twist and has a hearth of Perique (about 7%)"

Greenodd Rope: Thinner version of Holker - "Special Made for Synjeco by Kendal Manufacturers, this Tobacco takes the basis of Clegir Rope and has a hearth of Perique (about 7%)."

I did confirm it with Daniel previously, Synjeco blends are made either by Samuel Gawith (Mixtures) or by Gawith Hoggarth (Ropes) and all delicious! I assure you, none of the Synjeco blends we had come in on this order had the Lakeland essence. Only Synjeco blends I haven't seen first hand are Elephant Dung, Wenti Blend, and Synjecos Balkan.

Definitely enough rope to hang from though. Intriguing!!

That is some beautiful devistation Very Happy
I'll be interested to hear what you think of the Bad Nuns. I smoked 2 bowls of Bad Nun so far and really like it. There is a topping to my nose, but it does not seem to come though in the smoke.
