I've been smoking a fair bit of aro blends recently as I've been smoking in company. On the whole, they've been ok but I was beginning to lose track of my 'baccy journey, until today that is.
It's the Easter holidays here in Blighty at the moment so my wife and I have taken the week off to spend time with our children. As the weather looked the most promising for the week, today I took them all rock climbing on our nearest crag. All good fun and a great medium for exploring the bounds of what is perceived possible and applying this to life in general. Some great lessons in life for the youngsters.
Once home I decided it was pipe o'clock and chose a bowl of GH's Curly Cut and picked my Growley Rhodie for the job. It is still quite cool in the 'shire, with the winter clinging on in the knowledge it is beaten, the sun's thin rays of the evening lending a hand to the scene. I kicked back, sparked up the Zippo and fired up the bowl, admiring my work of the previous few days' potting flowers.
And the smoke. Curly cut is a Va based and as far as I can tell, a straight unadulterated 'baccy. By comparison to the aros I've been puffing away on recently it was tremendous. A proper ‘baccy taste and aroma with the sweetness of the Vas shining through. Yup, it’s good to be back. Roll on the summer.
