I smoked my first bowl of this blend this morning. It peaked my interest because I thought it could be similar to GLP Cumberland. My initial thought of this blend is that I am blown away at how good it is and it blew me away in the same fashion that Cumberland did upon the initial smoke of that blend which has come to be a favorite. Exhausted Rooster is similar to Cumberland as I suspected but totally different in it's own right. This first bowl is as smooth as any fresh leaf as I have ever smoked and I can't imagine how good it will be with some age on it. I rubbed it out a bit and dried it a little before smoking it. I don't know if that had any effect on it or not. I will have to smoke more of it but for now I am leaning towards thinking this could be C&D's crowning achievement. This stuff is good!!! I will say that it is very rich and flavorful with an almost creamy like quality.

I am just wondering if there are any other serious thoughts on this blend?

I really enjoyed it the few times I've smoked it... still have 3/4's of a tin left. I'm going to have to spend more time with it before I really decide it's a keeper or not.

It's on my wish list to get, but that list keeps getting longer and longer!

I agree! I smoked it early this morning, of course my best smoking is usually early in the morning at least before 7:00 AM.

I cannot get past the ridiculous cartoonish tin art, which never fails to remind me of the box my daughter's breakfast cereal comes in. God forbid my cellar look like the kid’s cereal aisle. You can have it.

Kapnis... don't judge a book by its cover :lol: . Many CD tins are colourful. On my shelf, I arrange the CD tins according to dominate colour... there's some good baccy inside.

Here! Here! Of course the 8 oz and 16 oz tins aren't as animated so just by it in bulk. :lol: :D

So, instead of thinking to yourself, "do I want a straight Virginia, or a burly, or perhaps something in a latakia blend today", you think to yourself, "do I want a light purple today, or perhaps something in a mauve..., no, it's definitely a puce kind of morning"?!? :mrgreen:
