A 2 year aged tin of Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co. Bob's Chocolate Flake. Nice stuff. Feels very meaty rubbing out.

Don't Laugh! Saturday I bought and opened a tin of Cherrybomb. Vanilla, cherry and black cavendish. In all my years of pipe smoking, I am not sure I have had a cherry blend. This was on clearance for $6.

Supposedly quite good. But pretty darned sure it's just a tinned Lane bulk.

If its confession time, I admit to liking their dark red.

You'd make a great dumb Dora.

Yes, Goose, I sure have. I've never rubbed meat until the individual striations of lean muscle separated from each other, though. You saying they're pretty similar?

Edit: not saying you're dumb, buddy. Just that youd make a good straight man. Also, I opened some Maltese falcon.

The Sam Gawith Mayors Chocolate Flake I've been smoking lately is much better than GH's Bob's

A 3.5 ounce tin of 2016 McClelland St. James Woods. It's sitting on a plate, roughly rubbed out, breathing new air.

I think my new JoeGoat Scoop II will have enough cake built up in the break-in, just as this tobacco is ready to smoke.

Surprized so few post to this thread.

I have two tins cracked: 2016 McClelland Aurora and 2016 Arango Cigar Co (McClelland) Hunter Beagle VA/Per. I have both tins in the process of decanting & will begin smoking from them before the weekend is over. Tobacco in the tin is "dumb" and flavorless & needs new oxygen to stop the fermentation process. Tobacco that is still in the process of fermenting is not very enjoyable.

Another 3.5 ounce tin of 2016 McClelland St. James Woods. Smoked my 1st bowl of this this evening. Shangrila. I have maybe 3 100g tins of this left in the cellar.

The only tin I've opened this month was Peterson Irish Flake. I've got 10 blends in jars that I'm working out of right now, and I'm at a point where I don't open anything until after I finish off one of the jars in the rotation.
