WHAT AM I SMOKING?

Post by Jester » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:33 am

From the most recent box pass I grabbed numerous samples from the open bags. This morning before heading out to work I grabbed a sample I had labeled "FR". I am not sure if I wrote down initials of the sample or if that is indeed what it was labeled. It is a dark cake with strong latakia. This was one of my favorite smokes to date and even sitting here now I am consumed with it and even getting after notes of bourbon.

If any of you 6 or 7 who were before me know what "FR" is it would be very helpful.

Ok. That wasn’t where I thought this was going. Carry on. As you were.

I did a quick look through the Thread and didn't see an FR...Based on your description, I wondered if it was something like C&D Black Frigate...

I was first on the last pass, and that sample wasn't in the box when I had it. So I have been no help at all...BUT I did up my post count by 1 :chili:

From reviews and pictures I just looked at I think this is it.
