Well, CB was one of my first tobaccos and I remember thinking, as I smoked it, "Is this it? Is this the whole of it?". I'm glad the answer to that self-imposed question was "No, not even close", but at the time, if I hadn't already spent about $20 on a pipe and a bunch of tobacco I'd probably have called it a day and gone back to Red Man (still love chaw, always will, but don't use it because it's just so nasty).
As for the 1Q...I've smoked CB Royal, but don't remember it. Tried 1Q once, it disgusted me (after I'd already bought 3 pounds of it) and I gave it all away to my idiot brother who smokes anything that will burn and smell pretty. Which brings me to the point of my post here:
I ran onto a(nother) single 1/2 pint jar of 1Q that is probably from 07, maybe early 08. Last one I found (much bigger jar), I dumped just to reclaim the jar, not considering that someone might actually want some aged 1Q.
So, my point, if one of you guys wants it, you're welcome to it.
Simenon, you seem to know quite a bit about it so I'm guessing you enjoy the blend. Interested?
