Any blends you find stinky but love to smoke?

Post by BloodWood » Thu Mar 19, 2015 2:54 pm

McClelland's Black Parrot: THE worst smelling tobacco in my cellar. Like a can of putrid fruit with undertones of gym sock. Image

But, this stuff is P.U.-rrific.
The Perique bathes the tongue with its tangy metallic notes.
Like sucking on that lucky penny I found on the floor at McDonalds.
It's been my go to broken flake for several months now.
The wife says she really enjoys the fragrance of BP, but can't stand the room note my shoes leave. Go figure.

Lamb Kake smells like garlic and hummus, but shoo-wee does it taste like a real feast!

The word "stinky" inspires in me paroxysms of sheer, abject rage. What the hell is wrong with you? Of all of the words you could have chosen.

Stinky?

Are you a fortysomething mom in high wasted jeans? Are you a Yo Gabba Gabba! cast member? For god's sake, man. Stinky?

Why not "reeking" or "offensive smelling" or "noxious" or "putrid"? Why not "stinking"? Why? You could still have used the indicative tense of the word stink and not have sounded like a damn goober. Stinking occurs twelve times in Shakespeare. Twelve times. Is that not endorsement enough for you?

Stinky?

Really?

I think they're teasing you so I'll pass on some suggestions. Black Parrot isn't that smelly for pipe smokers. It is good but it's just the beginning. You have to buy into the "ladder of stink" and keep in mind that delicious flavour is proportional to stink. You can up-stink it progressively by:
1) Adding Orientals - Any of the McCl Grand Orientals or Butera RV Blended Flake, Ashton Pebblecut, or McCl Tudor Castle - Really smelly good stuff. I love these.
2) Adding Latakia - McCl Arcade, McCl Anniversary, there are many otthers of this ilk
3) Reduce Virginia and really dump in Latakia and Orientals - Most heavy English mixes but esp GL Pease Westminster - You're the Duke of stink!
4) Add cigar leaf to the heavy English... there are fewer of these but try GLP Robusto and it's flake twin, plus McCl Dominican Glory Maduro and add DIY Perique to that. These are all really good and yes, they stink.

Orientals generally are very smelly to bystanders, so is Latakia. There are likely many more ...

Yes, stinky. You're thinking about this all wrong. Stink is good. It's happy for pipe smokers. And AFAIK Shakespeare never smoked. He certainly could have but I haven't seen any credible claims that he did. His idea of stink is not ours. Mellow out.

C&D Mississippi Mud matches that description for me. The tin note is pungent and a bit sour, but what a great smoke.

When I was a child, my mom used the word "stinky" to refer to defecation, e.g.,"make a stinky in the commode."

That is all.

You have to begin distinguishing inside vs. outside the stink. It is quite apparent that for us they don't stink. As pipe smokers we're inside the stink. The stink is actually a standing wave, positive and quite interesting inside but not so good on the outside. When we say a blend stinks, we mean that bystanders think it stinks then it's very good on the inside. Welcome to the inside of the stink. 8)

Semois is mighty pungent, but it is a delight to smoke, just not for those sitting nearby.

Ahh but Rusty, some tobaccos stink both inside and outside, Mixture No. 79, as an example. It not only stinks on the inside and outside,
it will also royally ghost a pipe--- an aveternal stink! 8O
