...in a Bones lovat. This is the first time I've smoked Dunbar. I'm going to smoke the hell out of this tin and pine for the next tin/bag, not knowing when I will be able to find it again (as I refuse to pay ebay prices for Esoterica). This is an excellent VaPer! The perique content is only condimental, and the seven virginias are the main players here.

And this is why I know I don't get VaPers as I had a tin (about four bowls left after sharing some samples) and I just don't get it. This may be a Esoterica thing too, though, I have only tried this and Pembroke and neither of them were worth the regular cost of the tin to me. I will let you know if I see Dunbar at regular prices in the future.

I just finished up a bowl of C&D Exclusive. I bought it four years ago, a pound of it, and didn't like it so I stuck it in a jar and there it sat for four years. Recently I tried it and I really like it but not all the time. Maybe it just needed aging or something.

Rinse and repeat. Actually, this is my third bowl of Dunbar today - all in this Bones lovat.

I remember liking it when I first opened it, the virginia had some different taste to it almost as if it was aged even though it was not. Yet by this autumn I was not geting that . . . . again it maybe just me and Vapers. I need to get some more marlin flake and see if I still really like that.

You and Goose both enjoy saying "rinse and repeat". In spite of the negative connotations, I'm sure you actually intend it in a pleasant way, yes? If you mean it literally, then what exactly do you rinse with?

Certainly not Dawn.

The internet agrees with your understanding of the phrase. I guess I need a different colloquialism, as I never really thought of the phrase as having a distinctly negative connotation.
