Thats what happen when you store your tobacco in the pantry, you end up smoking Spagetti-Os

I think you, too, meant to post in the "Would you smoke marijuana if it were legal?" thread, but let me know how those Spagetti-O's smoke. If it's a good smoke, I'll start drying them out, probably will take awhile. :lol:

But, to answer an earlier question, yes, if it were possible I would eat Embarcadero.

Had a second bowl this morning from a new sample tin at JFH. I'm not as impressed. It may improve with cellaring, but I think it's a bit too tilted toward the orientals for my tastes.

Cellar it for a bit, helps smooth out the flavors.

After such a review I feel the dire need to pick up a tin of this on my next order. Such a review makes me believe this is a life or death situation. Hopefully it will bring me life.

I'd like to try this.... it's on my wish list, as of RIGHT NOW.

My only experience with Izmir Turkish was a sample of C&D Sunday Picnic Flake (a VA/per blend). My notes indicate that I have never had a smoke open with such a flash of flavors!.... I've been wanting to explore more orientals ever since.

Been smokin' my way through a tin of Embarcadero. At first, I did not like it. Seemed like it had a sour taste. But then after some air played it's magic with it, in a 4 ounce jar, it has become magnificent. Love it!

Ok, now the bad news. You have to archive it because it's likely to go away. It was introduced after Feb 2007. Fillmore & Laurel Heights (the other two in the Fog City Red Trio) are ok still.

I think all three are great.
