    What are you smoking?

    Question about GL Pease tobacco

    Haddo's Delight: Super Extra Excellent! A very different, fairly strong, very popular blend. Tasty with a good nic hit, to be certain. Barbary Coast: never tried it, but of course, it's on "the list." Fillmore: an excellent va/per, with just a hint of latakia, as Jack Straw noted. I find this...
