Ohhh Dread Planet smoker... :)

Have you had Verge Engine Overdrive, if so, how does it compare?

Thanks

Very different. With Dread Planet I get a major G&H Virginia vibe, somewhat floral, lots of depth. Not much sweetness. With VEO I get a lot more perique, more of a stewed fruit flavor. The virginias in VEO seem much more geared to what I think of as American reds, lots of bready sweetness.

Most of us do it. Most of us have a name for it. I know at least one place that sells it... anyhow, it's the jarred up leftovers & remnants. I call mine Frankenblend. (Either B, E or V.)

Anyhow, that's what I'm smoking at the moment. Out of a MM Freehand. Kind of appropriate for the day.

Happy Halloween, also known as Samhain... the other day of the year that everybody is Irish. ?

Not far from finishing this bowl from a first production tin (2013) of Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem in the military mount style. Ice water and bergs is my drink.

Enjoyed a tasty lunch, and am passing the half way mark on this bowl of Ken Byron Ventures Orphan Mixture in a 2002 smooth natural straight silver banded Ardor Venere Extra Fatta A Mano Maigret billiard, signed by Dorelio Rovera and a black acrylic tapered stem.
