"Today all I'm smoking is Union Square."
That is a good one to be sure. Have you tried Opening Night? The reason I ask as I think it is as good or better. Both are Virginia flakes blended by C&D.

This is like picking a favorite child. Do I pick daily smokes that are easy to get ahold of and I enjoy them more frequently? Or do I choose the ones I get to sit down to and relax with?
Every day smokes

Orlik Golden Sliced

Baby's Bottom Match

Sutlif R-Blend
The sit and enjoyers

Frog across the Pond

Gaslight

Escudo

St James Flake

Anndddddd drum roll please!

FVF
Now let me get into some stuff I haven't gotten opened yet and change the list in a month. Penzance would be on the list if it weren't so damn hard to get. But I don't chase unicorns. Except Balkan Sobraine
