|I guess you could say this review would be called, "Skilling on Skilling."
This was the blend of all blends for me for a solid 2 years. I smoked this stuff by the pound! I encountered it at a local Tinderbox and if there was ever a aromatic blend just for me, This was/is it! ***Take note that this stuff was approx 5 years old. The keepers stated that it was not a popular blend. I guess not "candy enough" for the candy smokers.
To start: it has a sassafras sort of beginning. Not rootbeer, not anise, but sassafras. A very unique pleasant touch. Upon smoking one can begin to sense French Roasted Peanuts and/or Boston Baked Bean kind of taste. Both inwhich I still occasionly consume when my sweet tooth calls.
I could write a book about this blend. I'm trying to keep this short.
I totally wiped out the local Tinderboxes in a 50 mile radius; and had to start ordering. ***The new stuff is inconsistant! Sometimes similar to my old Skilling, sometimes totally different. Buyer beware! ....What has caused this? .... Two things maybe.
First: The stuff I'm receiving is not 5 years old.
Second: I've been told that either AC Petersen or Peter Stokkebye makes this blend. I've been trying for quite some time to find out who really is the blender. ***If anyone knows, please shed some light.
If I can find my old Skilling, I'll undoubtedly call it my all time favorite.
