    He's P&C's blender, does the Hearth & Home series of pipe tobacco and also has his own "monthly blend" which he selects for the month as an advertisement type of deal for the Hearth & Home series.

    I think he was commenting on the mis-spelling of "roll". It truly is a curse to be a great speller and an grammar warrior. I'm neither, but I have friends who are and I pity them. It's like how I can't ever enjoy movies the way most do. I find "problems" most of the audience doesn't see.

    Well at least the guy at P&C who wrote this label is consistent -- he misspelled "cinnamon" as well

    Russ spelled both correctly, someone mis-keyed it into the inventory system because the printed invoice that is system generated has it "wrong".

    Tasty stuff except it burnt the heck out of my mouth.
    Maybe it needs a heck of a lot of drying time.

    I think both were pretty obvious, and my spelling is not all that great!

    I noticed it right away because I am a spelling/grammar nut. When I saw it, I went into the inventory system and made the change. but apparently not early enough to catch that order. I'll try to keep the names simpler to avoid the problem in the future [grin}.

    mine was misspelled as well. Free cob with purchase of 4oz or more. Cheapie from China, and I had to file out the bowl and shank because it had a few shavings hanging around.

    Blend is pretty good. Could be an all day smoke. Cinnamon and vanilla are very subtle.

    I really enjoyed this blend. Wish I could have grabbed some more. Cant wait for Octobers blend. And you're right Murf. The cob is a cheapo from China. I doubt I will ever use it.

    I noticed Cinnamon being misspelled but wasn't sure about roll/role. Thought maybe Russ was playing with the name

    It should also be Russ' or Russ's; but hey, I make mistakes to.

    Sounds good, would try this blend in a cob after it dries a bit and smoke it slowly.
