    Eternal thanks be to Arno!

    Many of you know Arno from posting here,
    as well as his awesome blog:
    https://dutchpipesmoker.wordpress.com/

    I recently received a box in the mail that he so kindly sent along,
    and it is of staggering proportions!

    I hadn't expected full sealed tins, and upon opening, I must say that my mind was duly blown.

    Such the goodstuff all around and I can't wait to sample the varieties.

    I had been avoiding Das Strang because I didn't wanna get hooked onna baccy that's so difficult to obtain, and I was worried it wouldn't live up to the hype -- but now, I have no choice.

    And,
    on top of that, a trove of other amazing stuff!

    Thank you Arno for your wonderful generosity!

    What cool rarities! Great blog, too. How is the "Langue de Chien"?

    Certainly not like the tongue of a dog Although I don't know, don't want to know how that tastes like..
    It is difficult to describe Langue de Chien. I can only say that compared to La Brumeuse from Manil it is more smooth, creamy I would almost say.

    I plan on smoking some this weekend.

    The google search images for "Langue de Chien" are pretty awesome!
    The dog in the gif above reminds me of Bonzo...

    Also looking forward to trying the PRF Roaring Lion,
    the tin description sounds wonderful.

    And of course,
    finally tasting The Strang...
