Haven't ventured into the world of GLP yet, but that sounds like a blend I'd be up to trying. I am getting an itching to get more into Virginias and straight tobacco blends after having a bit of Gawith's Full Virginia Flake. Still, weary of lady Latakia though. As long as there's no Latakia in it I'm willing to give it a try.
Well you should definitely try some Pease out! Either wait for this one or find something else of his that looks good. The two he mentioned: Jack Knife (Virginia and Kentucky) and Union Square (All Virginia), both are very good. I prefer Jack Knife, but that could simply be because I've had 1 tin and a few bowls of Union Square, but I've had 1 bowl and a FEW TINS of Jack Knife :P
That's interesting... I've only just this week sent out samples of the prototype to a couple of people. Are you sure it wasn't something else? Sextant, perhaps?
I've now smoked through a bit over a tin of it, and have given the go ahead to begin production. I expect it to begin shipping towards the end of the month, or early December. There's some dark-fired leaf in the blend, working the magic that only dark-fired can work. I'm pretty stoked about this one.
