Mmmm Navigator, so good!

I had a couple of bowls and have jarred it up. The tin was only 3 months old when I popped it and I think it might be better with at least 3 more months in a jar (but probably 6 more). I have realized I like PS LNF a lot more after 6 months in a jar over fresh, so, I am hoping the same here.
Indeed I’ve got some with a few years on it.

It is my first G.L. Pease and it was not bad. Next on the list I think is Barbary Coast but it will have to wait a month or two for me to get it. Though Sextant and Triple Play are up there too. So many blends, so little money. LOL

I actually got a 3rd 500g box so now I have three waiting to be packed in 1/2 jars. Places were getting sold out and I got a little scared. I've just gots to have me some Brown Flake every morning with my coffee. Nothing else will do.

That is one that is in my wish list, how do you like it? What would be something in a similar vein?

I don't smoke many blends with Latakia but loved this one. Had a cedar and slightly sweet note to it. It was great. Not sure what to compare it to.

The tin lists virginias, burley, dark fired Kenyan leaf, and Perique. This is spun into small coins. It does not taste like a typical VaPer to me. Also it seems to have a stronger nic hit than I am used to. I will take this out to the garage later.

I am still confused about the description: a delightfully vivacious and flavorful smoke. Dictionary.com says vivacious means: lively, spirited, bubbly, ebullient, buoyant, sparkling, lighthearted, jaunty, merry, happy, jolly, full of fun, cheery, cheerful, perky, sunny, breezy, enthusiastic, irrepressible, vibrant, vital, zestful, energetic, effervescent, dynamic. Sorry, I can't taste many of these features.

I try to avoid latakia. I hope you can detect perky, bubbly, and irrepressible in Giubileo d'Oro.

I ordered a pound of Newminster Blackberry Brandy from PipesAndCigars and split it with my uncle. Just when I thought I was done with aromatics for good, I find one that I truly enjoy.
