Starting to Get Obsessed
- Sep 13, 2019
I just completed my second Forever Stem. That's a new Country Gentleman sporting a new Dark Orange Ripple long-ass stem, set off by a real silver band 'cause we fancy now.
This is fresh off the heels of me doing a side-by-side comparison of 1-Q and CBR. I know this has been debated to death, but I wanted to see for myself if I thought they were the exact same tobacco or not. I concluded that if they aren't the exact same blend, they have the same base. They didn't taste exactly the same to me, but my CBR was much fresher than my 1-Q, and CBR tasted more oily. This made sense to me because I think that CBR has more PG than 1-Q.
...ANYWAY, I was smoking 1-Q in my lunting beater cob and CBR in my first Forever Stem cob. The draw and the feel of the Forever Stem made me enjoy the experience of the CBR much more than the 1-Q, even though they were pretty much the same tobacco. I went in thinking I would compare 1-Q and CBR, and I ended up testing the original plastic stem vs. Forever Stem.
Forever Stem FTW!
