    Nothing on this planet stirs my loins as much as the prospect of trying a new blend.

    And when I went to grab the mail today, and saw that there was a parcel for me from the great state of Pennsylvania, I instantly noticed a distinct tingling sensation in my lower extremity.

    "My Secret Santa gift must have arrived," I thought to myself. "Maybe there will be a new blend for me to experience."

    I immediately took the box inside my smoking cave and tore it asunder.

    And what before my wondering eyes should appear but a large tin of a previously untried tobacco, with the most amazing and majestic tin art that I have ever laid eyes upon:

    Just lit up the first bowl. Had to tamp it long and hard. Don't think I will ever be able to remove the ghost though.

    I thought that was marketed by STD (Standard Tobacco Department or something similar).

    I'm pretty sure there isn't another pipe smoker as clever as Dan J.

    I was waiting for something like that (something similar to Peck's Mixture 79 case). I just wonder why does it have to happen to Peck all the time. Brilliant idea by the way!

    I'm just glad that Dan wasn't able to dig up a tin of "Reach Around Ready Rubbed"... I don't think the cover art would get past my office porn filters.

    If memory serves, our friend (if I can still call him that) Peck does smoke Latakia blends and with increasing frequency in colder months. The absence of that pantywaister Harris has really helped Peck reengage his "man card".

    And hats off to Pat, whose international Machiavellian machinations are truly world class!

    No.

    I mentioned to Lestrout recently that I seem to be smoking less and less Lat, and indeed, the only lat blend I have open at the moment is an 8 oz tin of Blackhouse, and I opened that tin in 2014. So its true that I seem to me moving away from Lat blends.

    That said, this tin of Mixture 69 will give me a chance to confront my fears with an unusually damp and pungent experience, so I am appreciative.
