|I am a big fan of Russ and I think many people will enjoy this offering, but not me. I post this because no one else has offered a review. If others find me completely wrong, I will delete this opinion.
To me, this is Lane's 1-Q. It looks, smells, tastes, burns, and BITES ME like Lane's 1-Q. I couldn't finish the second bowl. Like Lane's 1-Q.
Now there are LOTS of people who LOVE Lane's 1-Q, and for whom 1-Q offers no bite. Not me.
And, as I've posted before, I tire of bitey aromatics. I'm getting to the point where it goes beyond disappointment past frustration to downright anger.
To me, Butternut Burley and Trout Stream are real standouts and prove that goop and bite are purely optional. No goop with Patroon, but plenty of BITE.
