Hawke's -Indian Moon-
I've recently come up with a blend which satisfies me immensely. I call it "Hawke's Indian Moon". While I will not reveal its contents other than to say it's a non-aromatic tobacco blend, and contains no illegal substances. I want to share it with others seeking their opinions.
I just opened up another crumble cake and find it simply wonderful and it inspired me to go ahead and create a thread for reviews of my blend.
My goal was to make an easy to light, burns all the way thru, has some decent nicotine kick, and tastes good of course. I check the moisture levels, and press it to marry the flavors for three days. I wanted to come close to the tastes of aged tobacco as possible and create a blend that would if put aside, age to compete with those blends known to make great changes for the better. I think I have accomplished this.
My secondary goal is to have something that would be a trade item for those who have cellars that contain some extra amounts of aged tobaccos and willing to trade and help me understand aged tobaccos even more. I have sent out batches to only three people so far.
A quote from Tyler:
Hawke sent me a message about trying some of his tobacco, waited patiently around for it to come. Finally today it was here! Gave it a go tonight and was extremely pleased! One was a crumble cake well named as Hawke's Indian Moon. Fell in love with this stuff as soon as it was lit. From beginning to end it was complex, smooth, and tasty. To me it had a nutty/creamy taste, transforming into a sweet smokey taste, merged together and began to be a little harder for me to explain. It was how you expect tobacco to be. It took one light to get to the bottom of the bowl, everything was right here. I smoked it out of my Falcon then realized the irony of smoking Hawke from a Falcon, decided to describe it as "When you smoke this from a Falcon it's sure to take flight."
