I just jarred up new tins of SG FVF and St James Flake, and decided to combine the shake from both and smoke that in my Big Ben Ranger. Well, once I get it to stay lit…
Thanks for the reply.Age will not benefit EGR or any aromatic in a tin long term, which is why I'm smoking through all my tins before I get back to the tubs. So far, no problems with the 2014 tins. I've seen a little change in the tubs over a few years time (you should sampled the 20 year old tub I had!!), but not much in the tins outside of the burley being a tad more prominent. Eventually, the toppings will weaken in the tins, which is not uncommon, so I decided not to take any chances. As EGR toppings are mild, I was concerned about losing any.
But what's in the glass(es)?
The Councilman was an interesting follow to the Peretti Cambridge Flake earlier today. Both are "Latakia, Oriental/Turkish, Virginia" blends, with the Lat way in the background. Similar concept? The Flake was spicier, and a richer smoke. More cocoa in the councilman? Similar, but definitely different!Georgetown Councilman in a nice little WDC Milano Hesson Guard Zulu

You're welcome.Thanks for the reply.
I’m going to open up a fresh tin to smoke and jar half of it. If it’s one I really enjoy, I’ll replace them as I go, to always have a stock “on deck” In the cellar.
That is an extraordinary looking grain.Cut out of work early tonight. Smoking Murray's Three Year Matured Virginia before bed.
One of the last pipes Bruce Weaver made. Even has a chunk of lapis lazuli for the mortise. He went all out on it.That is an extraordinary looking grain.
Great minds and all that, my goodnight smoke was Red Rapparee in an unfinished Savinelli 645.Red Rapparee in a Sav. Expert blending with them.
