Grand Croupier Bone Yard

It may be a luck of the draw, but the odds, at least, are in your favor: Grand Croupier's Boneyard may be composed of a random assortment of English/Latakia blends, but they are high quality English/Latakia blends, themselves composed of quality leaf to start with. Considering the results of our past blind review on Grand Croupier's all-sorts-of-all-kinds blend, expect a good smoke, at a very good price.

I purchased a couple ounces of each of these three offerings of floor sweepings. This was my least favorite of the three. I actually enjoyed the double down and was pleasantly surprised by the aromatic as it exceeded my expectations. This one however, is a different story.

This was like a noxious tire fire to my senses. I realize that, by its nature, these blends will vary and some batches may present more to my liking than the one I tried. I prefer my balkan/latakia blends to be mostly virginia with touches of latakia and orientals. My gut feeling is that no batches of boneyard could possibly be enjoyable to me as I think the bulk of what gets thrown into the pile is latakia and oriental scraps.

Another thing to note with these blends is that the cut is all over the place with large chunks of leaf requiring rub out placed here and there throughout. I found this more pleasant with the other two than I did with this one as most chunks were straight latakia, at least it seemed that way to me.
Pipe Used: Mostly Meerschaum
