Good morning everyone. Been extremely busy after moving my mom to her new home and getting her settled in. Had Haunted Bookshop and Virginia Slices yesterday. This morning was Bald Headed Teacher with coffee on the side.

Greetings. McB Vanilla flake, which I opened for the first time in December? Just wasn’t working for me. Tried it in different pipes. And added other tobaccos to it. No luck. So around the end of January. I put the jar away. This morning I took one flake out. And put some KBV dark fire cherry with it in a MM 5th ave. This wasn’t too bad. I may slowly smoke the stuff off mixing it with the cherry over the next couple months. Maybe a little time in the mason jar has helped that vanilla Flake.
Carolina Red Flake in a Peterson Cara. I must admit that I keep trying to like this stuff. And I have had some aging in a Ball jar for over two years hoping it will get better. But it is still fairly bland. Glad I only invested in 5 tins. Maybe another year or two of age will help....
2015 GH&Co Grasmere Flake in a Stanwell Brushed Brown 139. The Rose/Geranium topping has receded from what it was when fresh, and is more of a pleasant background player. The Virginia’s are sweet and bready. There is a little Burley nuttiness also.
I liked it when the Rose/Geranium flavor was a bit more pronounced; At this age I absolutely love it!
