There was a generous portion of OD included when I was bombed last week. It was the one blend I chose to keep out for immediate smoking - holy smokes this is really, really amazing stuff. There are a lot of blends that I like, and there is a small handful of blends (maybe 3-5) that I find to be great and that I always return to. OD is mindblowingly good. Granted, I'm only three bowls, in and more will have be ordered before I can honestly say it ends up falling into the second category, but I cannot imagine a world in which I don't keep this in my regular rotation. The way the Turkish (I assume it's Turkish, anyway) ebbs and flows throughout the bowl is something that I really dig - sort of the same way Izmir behaves in GLP's Embarcadero (one of those other blends I can't get enough of).Blackhorse":ewjf7wwp said:What a sad story.
I still include this blend as one of my top three and would gladly name it as my all time favorite.
Me too. Reminds me of how enjoyable Steven Books's tobaccos are right when you get them.Blackhorse":0ppwl85y said:I'm just really pleased that I find them so enjoyable fresh out of the mixing bowl without having to wait a year or two.

I know, right? I barely like Crossroads more than this, but its real close.idbowman":ez373dxa said:It was the one blend I chose to keep out for immediate smoking - holy smokes this is really, really amazing stuff.
