Hell, I read most of Mr. Pease's articles and all of his posts that I find.  I enjoy his writing and I respect his vast knowledge of everything pipes and tobacco.  I didn't quote him -- I just wanted to point out that IMHO, what works best for one puffer may not work nearly as well for someone else.  It saddens me that Greg quoted my post and took it personally.  FWIW, Grandpa, I totally agree with your take on preferences.

You didn't quote Mr. Pease, but your comment labeling all "experts" as shills for their own products immediately followed a contribution from just such an expert and I think it's fairly easy to see why he was offended.

I used to shop at JR regularly when I started smoking, and those attractive Mac Baren tins called my name on any one occasion, Plumcake one of them. Like Symphony, I gave it a good try and threw it over after a half-dozen bowls. I think I could more sense of it now but with so many excellent other tobaccos calling, I don't bite.

But the name, "Plumcake"; plums are tasty, and we all know about cake. Sounds delectable!

Well, I'm pretty, 100% sure this was my last pouch of MB Bitecake.

Btw, I'm busy working on a nice little order from you for the new year. This year was pipe buying year. For next year I plan to build a nice stock of tobacco. First of all I want some pure virginias and blending perique to create my own vapers. I'm craving vapers like mad and it's not available in SA.

I'm not really into aromatic tobaccos anymore, used to smoke a lot of it while I was a "kid". But I do like a bit of sweetness, other than what I get from my VA's, from time to time.

To still this hunger, I go to Mac Baren's Seven Seas Regular Blend. It's the only MB that does not bite me. A 40g pouch (why not 50g like all the other manufacturers?) lasts me about 2 months.

I have 2 tins of 7 Seas but haven't cracked them yet. I bought a ton of tobaccos in early 2013 that I havent even tried yet. I am hoping its good stuff though. Right now, I am thoroughly enjoying my Sutliff tobaccos.  santa
