I sampled the Prince Albert today in my Radice Canadian. Hey, not too shabby! Great room note and nice flavor too. It was a little bit two dimensional compared to WBS or Solani ABF, but not totally outclassed as I thought that it might be. Another nice surprise for me.

Well, tomorrow will be day five for me and I plan on shipping it out in the morning so Jason can have it for the weekend. I'll try to wrap it all up tonight and be done with it.

Babs, she's a flighty gal. Left this morning without saying a word. She did leave some samples of tobacco and a strange note with some numbers on it. Must be some sort of code.

0307 1790 0001 9793 5706


J Rock, she did mention something yesterday about paying you a visit. Enjoy! What a Face

Well, she's on her way Jason. She left priority mail this morning. 0307 3330 0001 3450 9270 Have fun!

The original box didn't look like it would make another round of shipping, so I replaced it with a newer, sturdier box. I also replaced the peanuts and paper with plastic air bubbles. I used a second, smaller box to subdivide some of the contents inside the big box. The new BaBs is quite full and some of the contents are close to the top. Use caution when you slice through the tape. If you decide to put more than you take, you will need a bigger box. I hope all of this is OK with everyone.

I had fun and I look forward to the next round. Here's how I did :

Sampled :
Maduro Cut Cake
Maltese Falcon
Broken Scotch Cake
Epiphany
Heinrichs 312
Balkan 2030
Prince Albert
Sail Natural (set some aside for later today)

Takes :
Frog Morton on the Town, 50g, 2004
Star of the East Flake, 50g, 2007

Puts :
Frog Morton on the Bayou, 100g, 2003
Esoterica Margate, 50g, 2006
Wessex Burley Slice, 50g, 2007 (I relabeled the open tin of WBS "sample" and left it in the box.)

Great job Jeepernick and Tin Man. It sure looks like a lot of trading and sampling has been going on cheers cheers cheers . Thanks to everyone for swapping out the boxes where needed.

It looks like JHuggett and J_Rock are next. Enjoy gentleman.

P.S.: JHuggett please hold the box until at least the "new" mailing labels I am sending arrive. We have had a change of address Arrow . Wouldn't want either of the Bab's twins to get lost. affraid

The mailman just dropped off the box! I've already opened it and took a look around but have to get a few things done before I can really dive in.

Working on my first sample... Wessex Burley Slice. Now I grabbed a tin of this in the last box pass that had some age on it but I haven't had the heart to open it yet. I really like it and I'm eying the other tin in the box that is up for trades. I do wish the flavor was a little richer, it tastes great but seems a little watered down. Although it's nice to have something you can puff away on without much thought.

Well I am finally feeling alittle better and I was going to smoke this stuff ready or not. luckily I am at about 80% health. That cold stuff going around will take a man down for a few days. I dug to the belly of babs and pulled out the Bullseye Flake. I rubbed it out fairly well and packed on the loose side. It lit very eazy and satayed lit. I am not a huge perque fan but with the black cavendish (and I suspect a little casing too) it makes a wounderful light and sweet tasting vaper kind of blend. I seemed to enjoy it more in the second half of the bowl which is where I noticed the only change at all in the taste. It was like the volume knob got turned up one notch. Nothing drastic just a little kick. I might actually pick some of this stuff up. I did not think I would like it but I did! I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5.

OK, I got the labels I was waiting for in the mail last night so I will box everything up and get it in the mail. If I can't get to the PO tomorrow I will get it out the first thing on Saturday morning.

I smoked some Bullseye Flake Tuesday night and it was quite enjoyable. I'll post the rest of my tries later.

It's coming soon Lew!

Good to see both Jeff and Jason trying the Bullseye. It's one of my staples. I usually take a couple of coins and fold and stuff them in the pipe. It works for me. I like it as an "on the go" blend. If I'm heading out and not much time, I can load a couple of pipes in seconds.

Very Happy Paul
