Tins can sit around with me for a long time. If aging helps, they should come out singing once opened. Haddo's Delight is a quiet delight indeed, extra mild and though the Perique is there (I'm a true believer) it certainly is a quiet participant. This after GLP Westminster seemed to lose most of its Latakia after a few weeks. Luckily I'm in a phase of accepting and to some degree savoring extra mild blends. And after drying out overnight, I admit, this has more detectable flavor. But after a long wait, and some expectations, this blend requires some getting to know. I'm smoking it in a broad bowled Sav pot 122, so I doubt I'd go to a smaller pipe with a narrower chamber. If there are any ardent fans of Haddo's, I'd be glad to hear it extolled. It might alert my taste buds where to seek the splendors of this blend. I like it somewhat, but can't recommend it ... yet. If there's an enlightenment on my part, I'll post again. Maybe my expectations were too high.
