Aug 09, 2015 Mild None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant
appearance: reddish brown ribbon cut with some stems.

tin note: honey and bright straw with a hint of dried plums (I refuse to use the other word for dried plums). A note of dry oak leafs hung over the top.

smoke: lots of honey came through, along with a slight butteryness. The backbone of this smoke was the Virginia, which provided robust grassyness. Toasted almonds and salty toffee come to mind as I smoked it. This morphed into a hardwood campfire aroma, surprising, but not unpleasant. Maintained its bright sweetness vinegar or sourness at all. It got spicy towards the end of the bowl. No "dill pickle" taste, which I sometimes detect in predominantly Virginia blends. There was a nicotine "push" there, but it was mild to me (mild to me may == room spins to others). It smoked hot and I had to slow my cadence down to keep the temp down. Despite the heat, very little bite.

finish: dry with little dottle (always the case with my cob pipe, briar results may differ).

room note: smoky, pleasant, and slightly cigarish.
Pipe Used: MM Diplomat
PurchasedFrom: The Owl Shop at the counter.
Age When Smoked: Fresh baggy just bought.
