Looked for a thread on this, to no avail.

Got some Kendal and Grasmere Flakes from Fatman today. The box smelled like chewing tobacco, but the contents may have married their scents a bit.

I'm smoking two bowls of each, two of Kendal first, as the Grasmere airs out a bit.

The Kendal is rather sweet, and I'm getting a rosy smell and taste. The first bowl so far seems a bit stronger than what I'm used to, but nice. SWMBO says I should have my pinky up whilst smoking it, but didn't say the smell was offensive.

Anyone else have anything to add?

I found the Kendal Flake is a lot more scented with lots more going on (a bit too much at times), the Grasmere is Rose/Geranium; I believe the N is slightly stronger in the Grasmere. Of course, Grasmere is one of my three or so favorites, and the one Lakeland in that trio, so I obviously prefer that.

Kendal Flake is good but I prefer Grasmere. In fact Grasmere and Brown Flake Scented are my two favorite Lakeland Blends followed closely by Bosun Cut Plug. Smile

I actually liked the Grasmere a bit better yesterday. Today I had spaghetti and red wine, and now I find the Kendal more to my liking. They are both fine and pretty stout for me to sit through a whole bowl, and I found for me that applying the DGT the flowers fade and I get more of the tobacco flavours. Each blend got it's own pipe, but the empty bowls smell the same. The smell does not go away, does it?

It can take years of heavy smoking to rid a bowl of the Lakeland ghost. You may have luck getting rid of said ghost by treating the bowls with ozone. I believe walker briar works does that or I'm sure a handy guy like you could rig up an ozone chamber.

Nope, thank goodness! Very Happy (of course, 1/3 of my pipes are for Lakelands, Condor, etc)
