I'll try a Krumble Kake blend just about anytime. I love the way the leaf just melts in your hand as you load up. I'm not sure if King Cake is going to stick around due to the FDA thing, but I wish I had gotten more than just one tin. I really like this weed. Black Cavendish played a much larger role than I expected, offering some backbone and complimenting the Orientals and Perique nicely. The Virginia, which usually benefits from the good old Bayou Blessing (Perique), was more of a background supporter for the Black Cav. The Orientals had trouble peeking through the other stuff, but I did catch wisps of flavor from them on occasion. I think I would have liked this one better had it not been cased. It left sort of an aftertaste of fermented fruit and rum cake. I tried hard to like this one and think the moderate Aromatic crowd will enjoy it more.
