Anyone else ever get interested in a blend, only to find that JimInks hasn't reviewed it yet? Guess I'm never buying THAT blend. No way I'm going in blind like that - I'm just not as adventurous as I used to be!

Fools rush in. I've bought blends when I hadn't seen a jiminks review and didn't know if there was one. I've been given some gifts out of the mainstream -- Peretti's Thanksgiving Day, Spilman Mixture, and a Scottish blend from Austria. Sometimes you have to think outside the box. On the other hand, jiminks has led me to some good blends, and reminded me of others that I'd tried and liked but hadn't re-ordered (so I did) like Iwan-Ries Three Star Blue. If jiminks is brave enough to take the leap so often, I have to do it now and then.

You don't get to be a legend by being afraid to try new things. I guess I'm just a follower! :nana:

I cannot tell a lie: Though I don't always go with them, I DO always check first to see if Jim has done a review on a potential blend. Some of the reasons he takes a star still matches my smoking profile and the flavors match up well.

I look for ones he hasn't reviewed. Don't think he's done one on Black Frigate either.

I can't try them all fellas. I've been trying, and some friends have helped me out with it, luckily for me. I could never have done it all without my fellow pipers.
Chasingembers: nope. Haven't tried Black Frigate yet.

Most of your reviews mirror my thoughts, and while some of my purchases have been based on them, I like to be adventurous! :P

This is funny. I am backward. I usually order tobacco and then look for reviews. That seems dumb, nothing else I order is done that way. I normally research things to death. Hmmm...
