    Though I don't believe it has hit retailers yet, C&D just announced what may well be the first ever tinned Halloween blend on their FaceBook page, something called "Mixture Monster":

    Might not be my particular cup of tea, but glad to see a holiday blend without Snowmen, mistletoe, and a damned antler in sight.

    Cheers,

    I started to say I wanted a witch flavored one, but then the image of my mother-in-law popped into my head... (shudder)

    Sounds like a fun change up. Great for my deluxe orange cob!

    Halloween is a big production in our house. I'm not a huge fan of aromatics, but I'm game to play from time to time.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    So one blend but four labels? I like that, more label art for the buck. It would be nice to get a straight VA with some pumkin topping but this is indeed a start.

    well daimyo, in regards to Halloween blends, you've got a few pipes to go with it.

    I can't say I'm crazy about the 4 different labels for the same blend, but that's marketing for you.

    I know it's not a straight VA, but Sutliff Private Stock has "Taste of Autumn" that I think is akin to the allspice, clove, or "pumpkin-y" scent associated with all things fall.

    I have yet to try any C&D blends. This might be my foot in the door to so

    That I do, that I do. The topping on "Taste of Autumn" sounds good but the classic Cavendish and Burley base is one of my least favorite blend types. Granted, I understand it's use and do enjoy some Aros of this type but darn it, VA seems like a natural to go with Pumpkin being naturally sweet and all. Still, I might give it a shot. I'm sure this Monster Mixture will be somewhat similar in it's base makeup.

    Witch's Brew would be an ideal name for a blend and could be addended for each flavor type. Supposedly, Hallowed Eve was the night souls flew around. Jack O' Lanterns were used to scare them away. However, I have it on good authority that the name for the night derived from small kids selling hot dogs to people hurrying home to late to cook dinner. Thus, "Hallo, weenies" became Halloween.

    That blend sounds amazing to me... And so does "Taste of Autumn." It would suit my sweet tooth well.

    Bloody Hell Anthony... A year and a 1/2 into pipes and no C&D blends yet? Wow. IMO they make some great stuff. I'm a fan of burley and they do burley right.

    I'm now going to have to pick up some Sutliff Pumpkin Spice. Put a bit of it in a small container with some OGS see if I can alter it.

    I think there was a thread either last year or the year before about Halloween blends and there seemed to be some interest. Glad there is something on the market now. I was surprised when I found there were none. I like my Holiday Spirit but something about fall spices just gets my mouth watering.

    I like Devils Holiday but for me it screams summer time berry picking. It just doesn't have that fall feeling for me, likely the lack of mulling spices.

    This blend is not my cup of tea either, but I think it's very cool that they did this. Plus, the multiple tin art... nicely done C&D.

    Daimyo. I just got my first tin yesterday. I am going to crack it tonight. I just know that in the last two years it sells out QUICK!

    I just order 2oz. of Demon, Devils Holiday, Blue Note and Gentleman caller. I'm an aro guy and very curious on the blend, if I like I'll get the other three.
