Anyone know a neighbour of burleyboy we can send to check in on him?
Woo Hoo! Sounds pretty good! Did you get it from Pipe Republic? Hey Per Jensen... Send it across the ocean please! Pandemic or not... We demand Rustica!Alright. So I’m pushing the dead man’s button. Actually, this is definitely a strong blend, as I’m coming towards the end of the bowl. I also had suspected, that it might be less strong than bold Kentucky, but this turns out to be wrong imho.
Tastewise, this is a very interesting blend. It has the Burley and Virginia notes, that are comparable to HH Burley Flake, but the whole experience is accompanied by some intense peppery, spicy notes, which tend become a little bitter from time to time... The retro hale is fairly nutty with a punch of pepper, that is actually so strong that it had made me sneeze.
It behaves well, rubbed out in my pot shape pipe with a little drying time.

Wow that's hardcore lol.I'm really looking forward to this flake. I've smoked a bunch of homegrown rustica (makhorka) in Russia when out in the country visiting. That's all my wife's Grandpa smoked, usually in a cone of newspaper. They mix in chopped up stem material to moderate the nic content. They still sell the industrial makhorka. It's pretty rough stuff, kind of like smoking wood chips. I can't wait to taste what MacB does with rustica.
