Had O The Wynd. My first go at this, I was underwhelmed and dissapointed. I found it bland and didn't get the hype. We'll, looking at my cellar this morning, I saw that Hal jar and thought maybe it's time to revisit this one.
Perhaps it's my evolution as a pipe smoker, maybe the time in the jar did it, either way the smoke I had with it this morning was fantastic! The Red Virginia sweetness was there throughout with some light tangy sour notes and deep in the background the earthy Kentucky lent a nice depth of flavor, with some sweetness of its own. At least that's how it came across to me. I have to wonder what I was thinking the first time I brushed this one off... it is phenomenal! Pipe smoking as it should be... excellent!
