    Morning

    Started the morning off with Bald headed teacher from 4noggins. Was smoked in a Charatan bent blasted beauty. VERY interesting blend, not too much latakia (any is almost too much for me), and a hint of topping (vanilla). I dont really smoke anything with flavor added, but this blend keeps drawing me back.
