Tobacoo: Brebbia Sinfonia

When: Right now.

Never did make it to Davidson's (house hunting), but I did find Main Street Cigar in Bel Air - which is good because that is where I'm planning to move should all go well.
Well, it appears I've found a house in Bel Air, MD, also managed to find my way to Davidson's in Ellicot City. A bit of a drive, but do-able. They didn't have my favorite (McClellands 2015), but I did pick up a tin of "Frog Morton on the Bayou"

Trying it out right now in my Bent Stanwell Majestic. First impression is spicy, kinda like peppery incense. Complex taste....very interesting almost fir tree smell.

Might need a couple bowls to render a full opinion.
It's always the quiet ones.....isn't it?

You're cheating. That's an aromatic (even though a very mild aromatic)! You're supposed to be a hardcore, dyed-in-the-wool english-smoking whippersnapper. BTW, that's my favorite. shh...don't tell anybody.

:wink: I got this air cleaner deally for smoking at my desk. Christine's desk is accross the room. The first time I smoked inside I tried Old Ironsides (aka wet stinky fart blend) after about 5 minutes it got voted down. The next time I tried smoking inside I went with Boswell's Berry Cobler. That was a big hit. Last night... since I know Boswell's Best has been a hit for you, gave that a try... didn't get any complaints. :D

Ben Wade, with Frog Morton, Across the Pond.

1st part: couldn't keep it lit
2nd: some Latakia, mostly sweet
3rd: still couldn't keep it lit, wet, steamy tongue bitey
last: ashy, with still some sweet, a quite a bit of nicotine hit, what's up with that? I thought this stuff was supposed to be tamer...burned to some dottle, kind of disappointing!

Ok, but tasted too much like cavandish. Don't think I'll keep it. FMOTT is, IMO, a little better, dryer, more English'er.

I'll review it later, but, that's today's smoke!

Sounds like you need to dry it out a bit. Was this the first bowl out of a newly cracked tin?

To stay on topic: I'm smoking nothing. :D

How is that blend? I've had a tin shelved for about a year now, but haven't cracked it yet. How would you describe it? We seem to have pretty similar tastes in tobacco, so I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Umm, I'm not smoking anything right now.

But I did smoke some Red Ribbon in a Medici Dublin today.

Well... point taken. My choice of words was poor "voted down." She didn't like it so I switched to something she'd enjoy more. Sacrificial love baby. I just give give give. :yes:

Hi Tyler,

Yes, it's a newly opened tin. But, in the past, I've smoked newly opened FMOTT and FM and had no trouble like this. I'm as surprised as you!

Anyhoo, I'll try your suggestion. Thanks!

And, why aren't you smoking anything! <redacted_emoji>

Okay, when did Scott start buying Heeschens? Hey John, maybe feed him a few more Sam Adams in Chicago and we'll split his collection...

What: Freshly opened tin of FMOTT ('03)
In: SMS Full bent
When: about two minutes from now
With: '04 Cab-Shiraz, to follow up with a Clocktower Port (cheers, GScott!)
Where: in my living room, all by my lonesome since the fam is out on spring break visiting extended fam. "Goblet of Fire" on the big screen, scrunched back in the big leather sofa, with one Sheltie at my feet and the other curled up beside me, and the window slightly open for the breeze and the cool rain falling in the yard.

God is Good... :wink:

Follow-up: and God has a sense of humour - finished most of the bowl and then had a sip of the vino - the combination is reminiscent of 102 octane leaded regular, with slight overtones of brake fluid. (Usually the Cab-Shiraz is nothing worse than a Sunoco 87, so it's definitely the combo - add another lesson to the book of life...) It could have been affected by the subtle bouquet of wet dogs, as the furry duo started out in the rainy back yard. Maybe I should've stuck with tea and Sunset Breeze - while reading books about walking - Fellowship of the Ring, perhaps? And so much for the port - my palate is as confused as a Baptist at a New Age convention - not even going to waste the cheap port now...
