    Dave offered some great prices on some sealed tins of various tobaccos here recently. I took advantage of a few of them and decided to open a tin of Savinelli's 140 Anniversary blend. God knows, I don't need another open blend to jar up, but this just sounded so interesting. I've never had a blend with cigar leaf florets before. I got to say, I feel they play a rather minor role here but are still noticed, with the virginias really shining through. The topping is very light but a nice touch and really doesn't overpower the tobaccos. I'm still figuring it out, and I'll have to see what I think after a few more bowls, but for now it's a nice relaxing smoke that is fairly complex.

    Here I am vegging out on the couch smoking it in, what else but my Savinelli GDO 319.5.

    Well played

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    I have found the blend to have a little bite. I am sure I need to slow down a bit given the thin cut. I certainly enjoy the flavour.

    Dave is a popular guy tonight. I'll be trying Escudo for the first time, thanks to him. Great prices and fast getting it to me. You rock, Man!
