"Steve WHO?", you ask. Oh yeah...the guy from Rich's in Portland (of all places). I'll challenge you. Try ANY of his blends and tell me that you're not satisfied...in that they don't represent the best of the genre they represent. I don't think you can do it...fairly. I mean if you hate all English-American hybrids or hate any hint of aromatic or whatever...and then try one and say you don't like it...not fair. Stay within your preferences. The guy is a master on a par with anyone in the world. This blend is proof of the pudding. It is at once unique and universal. Singluar in vision yet approachable by darn near anyone. Amazing stuff.
Oh, and by the way...the state is pronounced "ORY-GUN". And if any, there's a slight emphasis on the "OR". Just sayin'. The U of O (in Eugene...the one that went to the Rose Bowl this past year) used to have back window stickers for your car that said ORY-GUN. I used to have one across the back of a '63 VW Bug. As the school is my alma mater, I'll take it as OK to school y'all in the proper way. That, and the fact that every other person I grew up around, as a 60-plus year native of the place, said and says it the same way. Nuff said.
