Pirate Kake Adventure

Post by Stanley76 » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:16 pm

I ordered 12 ounces of C&D Pirate Kake last night. I hear that it is mostly Perique. What can I expect? Looking for your opinions before I form my own.

It is mostly Latakia. Far as I know there is no Perique to be seen.

You can expect a deep rich Latakia smoking experience.

I think it'll take you 8 years 5 months and 4 days to make your way through that mail call.

Ha ha. I must have misremembered what I heard. Looking forward to it. I used to be a nicotine junkie but now my old body can only take it in moderation now, so you may be underestimating how long it will take me to smoke it up.

Early in my pipe smoking, I thought I really wanted to try Pirate Kake. Now I really don't care. I also ordered 16 ounces of PS English Oriental Supreme after that was the first blend I smoked, and I enjoyed smoking the 1oz that I bought at the local shop. I got that 16oz order in from P&C in mid April, and I have only smoked a third of it. I did the not so uncommon thing of diving into english blends, only to find over a bit of time, that as I got used to the pipe, I really started developing a taste for Virginias and Burleys, and I only smoke a bowl or two of english per week. :lol:

But do let us know how your Pirate Kake adventure goes. Who knows - you might find that you really enjoy smoking a blend that is 75% latakia. 8O

Exclusive is pretty much that way too, 50% perique.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

I've got two jars of Exclusive that I bought in 2015. I only smoke it every once in a while. I smoked a bowl yesterday as a matter of fact. It smells sour to me in the jar but when I smoke it, it's kind of buttery tasting at first. I like it occasionally but not often.

12 ounces of C&D Pirate Kake seems like a lot. But I hope you may enjoy it.

My Haunted Bookshop and Pirate Kake was delivered today. 16 ounces instead of 12. Anyway, I smoked a bowl of Pirate Kake in a Savinelli Roma that I also just got and I must be weird because I loved that Pirate Kake. I thought it would be too strong in nicotine for me to really enjoy but to me it's not as strong as Old Joe Krantz or even Plum Pudding. I really enjoyed it. I will be smoking it often I think. I'm not expert enough to distinguish different notes and flavors of pipe tobacco. I just seem to like or dislike it overall and I do like this stuff. It got better the further down the bowl it burned. Good stuff. I put it in a couple of quart canning jars and also jarred up the Haunted Bookshop but I took the advice to get some half pint jars too so I don't have to open it as often. I have some Old Joe Krantz jarred up form 2017 and some Luxury Navy Flake and C&D Exclusive. I have tin of Mac Barren HH Burley Flake and a tin of Mac Barren HH Old Fired Burley Flake arriving tomorrow too. I may just let them sit and age for a while...or maybe not.

Weird to love Pirate Kake? Oh no, sir.

Unless it's just you and me. Well, then it might be weird.

Latakia blends are fantastic, lots of flavor, lower nicotine, typically. Never tried Pirate Kake, but it’s on my list. Try Lancers Slices sometime if you want some VA with your Lat.
