thanks to a new pipe friend in Florida, I had one heck of an evening. First smokes of Escudo and 1792.

I knew the aromatics weren't doing it for me, but I had no idea what was out there! I fear a serious impending attack of TAD, as I continue the quest for knowledge!

Piet, I'm not saying I'm immune to the 'N' Very Happy

I'm still working on smoking slowly enough, I'll just have to keep that in mind with these stronger blends!

A common problem cig smokers have when hitting the pipe is that we tend to smoke to fast! I still catch myself out sometimes!
Enjoy your smoke bro!

Ok, tried the OJK and Peterson's Irish Flake last night. Piet you were right the OJK is certainly High Octane stuff! It was nice, I'll have to try some more and figure out how it wants to be packed before I have a verdict. The PIF was fairly high octane as well (of course I had a light dinner). Already can tell that the PIF will be a regular in the rotation. Tonight I'm hoping to try some Black Duck & Burley Flake #1. Can't wait!

Good to hear bro.
I find that OJK smokes well when well dried and I gravity feed it into a medium depth pipe, a billiard or bent billiard does wonders. Just had a bowl in a Ser Jacopo dublin that Brother Nitschke gifted me....... damn fine smoke, just go slow. I find that is is a corner stone burley when it comes to tasting the nuttiness of a fine burley.

Doc Manhattan smokes his fare share of it too, Send him a pm and find out how he packs. Dang, I'd like to know too???

Thanks Piet, I'll give him a shout.

I'm smoking everything in cobs right now, and packing seems to be the only hiccup I am having. I'll be trying more of the OJK soon, no doubt!

Ok, just tried C&D Burley Flake #1

Good Grief that is an awesome smoke. Seem to be getting deeper into the flakes, and I like it. Now I have to go see what kind of prices I can get on this blend in bulk....

Guess I'll make it a C&D double header and try some Black Duck in a bit.

Thanks Piet, I can find it in tins no problem. Can't seem to find it in bulk.

I might just pick up a couple smaller tins for now. I think a 1lb tin would be a nice x-mas present Very Happy

dover, I'm not planning on neglecting any segment what so ever Cool

I just know I'll be buying / smoking more of the Burley Flake #1, and trying the others in that series over time. I'm too new to this to make any blanket assumptions, so almost everything is in play.
