That's what I did.

Go to the box, get the sample.
Load the pipe, leave the room.

Go into the man cave, back yard, spare room, whatever.
Focus on the sample.

Wife will have to wait, be supportive and understanding.
It's only a week out of her life. bom

JP. I dip skoal straight long-cut when I can't smoke a pipe or cigar. I tried chewing a few of the s&g ropes( #4, blk xx, and #4 wiskey) they all burned the heck out of my lips, does the g&h ropes have that same affect for you? But I still like the flavour of the ropes smoked just got a little caried away with my puffing.

Cigargod,

I have never experienced cheek bite when chewing the ropes! Course I have been chewing tobacco for 40 years....... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Next up, Stokkebye's Luxury Birdseye Flake. Smoked in an Ashton XXX Sovereign group 5 straight bill. I have wanted to try this for some time and appreciate the opportunity to do so now. This is a reasonably priced bulk. According to tr.com, what do they know?, this is a high quality vaper with a touch of unsweetened black cavendish. I could not detect the presence of perique. The cavendish is only slight but is apparent for brief moments in both taste and aroma. I have never been enamored with the Dutch blends put out by this blender or others. Bullseye is a quality blend of va's with just a hint of cav. It is a quality honest tobacco. I detected no toppings or flavorings. It indicated at times that it could get hot and I adjusted accordingly. The sample was much dryer than I typically smoke. I would easily consider it an all day smoke followed by an evening english/balkan. If I remember at my next order, I'll put up a pound. Good stuff.

Finished (Danished?) the Bullseye. It ended a little on the sweet side. The cavendish was more present, but not necessarily overwhelming. Just too much,,,,for me. It satisfied my sweet tooth for a while. Ever have that happen? Tin note is good, first match is promising, goes along fine,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,you end saying "Ok" but "I'm done."

Moved on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,actually just finished a bowl of McClelland Dominican Glory. Decidedly more cigarish than Maduro Cut Cake. VA's were not as sweet and balanced as MCC. A little salty. Cigar feel to tongue,,,,,,,,,,,,somewhat of a cigar nose. Not bad things by any means,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I really liked it and would like to have a tin going at the same time as MCC. I would have some just to satisfy that ocassional salty cigar thing. Would not cellar or age it. Would, and will, cellar MCC. MCC has down road potential whereas DG would probably not, FOR ME, change much with age. DG not as complex and interesting as MCC.

Wish I could be more eloquent,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,you know,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,va's dancing daintily, perique coming center stage only to be hushed by the burley refrain,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,NAH!

Does the former prevail or does the latter trump? I like the Bullseye and have lots on hand.

Very Happy Paul

Back with my evening selection. Lancers Slices.

I know what to expect from this as I have smoked it before. Simply, a straight forward full on latakia. Monochromatic and very staisfying. I don't cellar this as I have many full strength lats already,,,,,,,,,,Penzance, Old Ironsides, Pirate Kake, Commonwealth, Odyssey, Night Cap,,,,,,,,,,,,,to name a few. Several GLP blends fill this bill with added complexity and interest. Nonetheless,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it's after dinner and I need latakia. Very nice indeed.

PECULIAR,,,,,,,,,,,,There is a very faint slight soapy aroma and taste. Almost indetectible but there. NOT in a scented, topped, cased manner,,,,,,,,,,,,more of an incense quality. Any chronic Lancer guys notice this? It may be a little contamination from the box but I don't think so. There are no scented Lakeland blends in the pass.

I paid JP 5 bucks to wave a chunk of Grousemoor plug over the box and chant, there may be a bit of residual taste Laughing

So, we're waiting for your opinions on Walnut and Rum & Maple Very Happy I'm gonna smoke some, so you're gonna smoke some Twisted Evil

Not going anywhere near anything named Rum and Maple. If I review the reviews again on Walnut, I may just pass on that too. NOW,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if someone were to loan me his S. Bang,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

This mornings sampling was McClelland #22 Virginia. McC puts out some very high quality va's and this is no exception. Typical for them is that trademark Hienz overtone. Not too objectionable in 22, though. I have a stockpile of aged #27 that seems to have lost the vinegar essence. #22 is a smooth medium va to me, perfect for a morning wake up smoke. A bit grassy but I actually like this in a va. I have many mid strength va's in the cellar that are very similar to this. If you are looking for a base line va, this might be it. Pipe used was a Ser Jac L1 Maxima straight billiard,,,,,perfect for long nice smokes of va/vaper/vaburley. No burn/bite. Very smooth, dry and clean; as a quality va should be.

Thanks to whoever put this in.

OKAY! WHAT's NEXT.

Stand back,,,,it's time for Mercer Mule Manure. I am going to give this a fair shot.

Baggie aroma IS decidedly aromatic,,,,, think country fair cotton candy.

Appearance is broken ribbon. Looks good. No discernible different tobaccos. All is medium brown. Moisture is very acceptable but it has a bit of a sticky polygoopalene feel that is reminiscent of the 60's aros that I smoked before discovering Balkan Sobranie, Dunhill and State Express.

I am about to put match to it. If it goops up my pipe, I'm hitchin a ride out east on a turnip truck and will look to whupp Leroys punk hill billy ass.

Here goes,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Forgive me.

First match,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lights readily (kindling?),,,,,,,,,,,,aromatic nose,,,,,,,,,sweet smelling,,,,,,,stasys lit well,,,,,somewhat bitter tasing initially (burley),,,,,,,no latakia,,,,,one dimensional,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not really bad but not really good either,,,,,,,,,,sweetness abating,,,,,,settling down a bit,,,,,,potentially hot if oversmoked,,,,,,,breath smoking brings back the county fair cotton candy aroma,,,,,,,,should attract the Alysson Krauss' out there.

Tamp and re-light coming up,,,,,

Low in nicotine,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not too much flavor,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,still a slight bitterness,,,,,,,,,,not heavy on the tongue,,,,,,,,,,,,,burns very well,,,,,,,going fast,,,,,,where's the beef,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not really much of a tobacco satisfying taste,,,,,,,,,clean burning,,,,,,,,,nice white ash(just like Leroy's),,,,,,,,,no gurgle,,,,,,,no shiny black crystalline reidue in the bowl,,,,,

Two analogies come to mind,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Mario Andretti in the family SUV against Grandma in a Corvette would be a car race,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sort of.

Halfway between Rita Perlman and Anna Nicole Smith,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,fun while you're doing it but afterward you have to look back and realise what you did.

Pipe cleaner comes out surprisingly clean and not overly wet.

Conclusion,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,appropriate for cash strapped eastern kracker red neck striper fishermen and Kentucky nail chewin methane enriched truck drivers.

NOT awful,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not awfully good.

Good choice for afro 's S. Bang.
