Just and update, I received a notice yesterday that they tried to deliver the box but I missed them so I can pick it up Monday morning at the post office. So it's made it here safe, I just don't have it in my eager hands yet. Laughing

Jason, don't forget the safety rope when diving into the box. It sounds like with what Artic Smoke added you will need it. Have fun.

I picked up the box. It's a big one! Can't wait until I'm home so I can dive in.

Sadly, I'd suspect that your entire 'work zone' including your POV is off limits to smoking ... affraid

Even though I couldn't play this time around, I'm sure following this box pass, it should be VERY entertaining. I'm just hoping it gets close enough to North Georgia to catch a wiff of the aroma Smile

No we have designated smoking areas and what not but BAB (Big Ass Box) is not to be rushed. Laughing

Being a facility manager I hang out in the mechanical rooms and chiller/boiler plant to smoke when ever I want. I even sneak a smoke in my office and the shop from time to time since the building is designed for smoking. Of course smoking has actually been banned inside the facility.

OK so I spent the first night with BABs. Sat in my recliner and literally sprawled the contents of the box all around me. First up on my want to try list was Anniversary Kake so I load a bowl in a Peterson dedicated to my favorite VaPers. I laid back and enjoyed the pipe while the smell of all the other tobaccos surrounded me. Was quite enjoyable. Laughing

I plan on only taking a couple more days being I can just snag a couple of samples for later.

One surprise so far. I ususally can't stand anything with Latakia in it but I found myself smelling some of the English blends and I actually wanted to give them a try. So I'm going to give them a try. Before even the smell of Latakia kind of made me ill feeling. Would love it if that aversion was finally gone.

Jason, it sounds like we are in common with the aversion to latakia. I agree with you on the thought that some of those actually smelled good. I tried the am pipe, a little to much lat. for me, but the Art's endeavor was actually pretty good.

Sounds like our tastes are quite a like Bill, that's the one that intrigued me most.

Mike I've often thought if I forced myself to smoke more Lat blends I'd get used to it but being I enjoy Va's so much I've never been able to stick with it.

Jason,

Please be careful lighting up with the contents of the BAB exposed and vulnerable, one stray spark and the parties over!!!!

Sounds like a great pass so far.

Whats weird for me is I smoke Latakia is waves. Sometimes I will put it in my rotation for a couple weeks then I won't smoke it for a while.

Bill
If anyone is interested in what exactly makes up Art's Endeavor I'm sure he will not mind if I post the ingredients. You can also get it at Mars Cigars already mixed.

Art's Endeavor is basically mixed with 10 ounces of 5100, and a ounce each of Perique, Latakia, and Oriental. He uses McClellands #14 or #8 for the Oriental. From what I have heard and read he has been mixing this blend for years.

I've been working my way through the box and enjoying every minute. I have been a little busy as of late so I didn't get it all packed up today. I need some more heavy duty plastic bags to add some stuff. It will go in the mail on Monday and I will post and update on all that's transpired then.

kilted1, Unfortunatly, due to an enforced hiatus in my pipe smoking, I can't play either, but am following the pass. Hey, maybe the last guy who is playing will bag up the aroma of BABS and send it to us.


lol! lol! lol!

Sorry for not updating sooner, here's the score:

Takes:
A&C Petersen Escudo
C&D After Hours Flake

Puts:
C&D Old Joe Krantz
SG 1792 Flake
Ashton Winding Road (Noticed there weren't any aromatics)
For Sampling:
Orlik Golden Sliced
Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed

Sampled:
C&D After Hours Flake
GLP Montgomery
McClelland A.M. Pipe
Heart & Home Frenchy's Sunza Bitches
Heart & Home Anniversary Kake
GL Pease Telegraph Hill

Overall a very nice pass. I had a few bowls of some of the samples just to make sure I liked them as much as initially thought. After Hours Flake and Anniversary Kake are keepers in my mind. AM Pipe wasn't too bad for a Latakia blend, actually enjoyed it.

So it's now off to Trout Bum via Priority Mail.

03080070000162021187

Great time and thanks again!

Paul I too missed out due to my present finances, but I'm hoping to enjoy watching this and deriving vicarious pleasures as the box passes from hand to hand.
