There are some days I like the quasi-brutal dark fired nature of Dark Flake and it's various subsets like Scented and/or Liquorice (a newly discovered vice). Other days I prefer the Brown Twists...usually the sweet scented varieties like Rum, Whiskey, etc. Today I'm watching Wimbledon and puffing on a tallish narrow bowl of Sweet Maple Twist. Really, really excellent. Sliced, as usual for me, into thin coins which fluff nicely and pack in easily. Today I gave the very fresh twist no drying time and it is still lit and now burns very well...sipping slowly...with care (as the twists are strong indeed).

So how sweet/mapley is it? It's not really very sweet at all and only very slightly maple in flavor. The essence just takes the harsh edge off the Brown Twist and adds a little sumthin sumthin. Deftly done. Just right. I keep it at a slow sip. Sidestreaming is elegant. Rich brown flavors pronounced with that hint of sweetness. Very cool. No gurgle. About perfect. Tamp it very lightly. Glass of cold water as a mouth rinse. Pipe bliss boyos!

And Andy Murray wins his match against some Chinese guy. A brilliant UK kinda morning.

Five stars. Very fine.

I always want to try the Gawith flavored twists, but just can't bring myself to do it. From everything I've heard they're kind of semi-aromatics that aren't cloying to a non-aro smoker...but I just can't pull the ol' trigger.

Sounds like a good morning.

I was smoking some SG Brown Rope No. 4 the other day, and I had to take a nap afterwards. I didn't even finish the bowl.

POWERFUL stuff. Very tasty though.
