    I really enjoy C & D Black Frigate and Pirate Kake, so Bow-Legged Bear sounds right up my alley. It has a pretty good showing on TobaccoReviews.com, but do any members with similar tastes have an opinion on this blend, good, bad, or ugly?

    It has an extremely unique flavor and I don't know how to describe it. Not similar to PK or anything really imho, but the bear on the tin is bow-legged for a reason though, so keep that in mind. I came from the cigar side, so it's not a problem for me, but others may revisit their most recent meal if not careful. Worth a try if you like the strong stuff.
    It's not something you'll forget.

    Yo mis

    If you like PK and BF, you will like BLB, provided nic doesn't give you the spins. It is well named.

    I liked a tin well enough to buy 8 oz. It has some 5 tobaccos, and I wonder if Craig Tarler had an idea in mind that was difficult to achieve, or if when he went from two to three tobaccos the blend got out of control, so he added another, and another. . .Mac Baren has a number of blends with that many tobaccos, but most other blenders seem to work with two or three. Greg Pease writes that to blend, smoking each tobacco in combination is the only gauge by which to take the blend home.

    I enjoy this similar blend:
