Egg,

I take a very sharp knife and cut off a small piece. It is packed tighter than you imagine.a little produces a lot of tobacco. I then take the coin into quarters, finally I rub it out and let it sit on a paper plate for 4-5 hrs. This allows it to breath and dry a bit. I have stuffed coins and quarters in a pipe and I have rubbed it out and smoked it, none of the above works well without letting it breathe for a bit.

Its not as bad as everyone carries on, don't be afraid. IMO its not much stronger,nicotene wise, than Cumberland. I think people mistake the incradible strength of flavor for Nicotene strength. It goes well with an extra dark roasted coffee.

The G&H versions do hit me more than the Sam Gawith versions. But then, these flavors are only done by G&H.

I take a new pair of scissors and cut around the edge of the rope. I end up with small football shaped slices that rub out easily. After cutting around, I can usually cut the end square again as it's smaller.

I have a small maple cutting board just for tobaccos. I used to slice coins. That works also. I just prefer the scissors method.

I chewed a peice of Gawith rum rope once...... It almost killed me.... a unique smoking experience and agreed that you should smoke it in bed unless you want to sleep where you fall.

Are the SG ropes less strong in taste than the G&H ropes?

Hey Eggman,

You come up for air yet. Hoping the box takes a couple more days to get here. Starting to go back together with the bathroom. Don't need too much of a distraction until it is finished. Although, a little distraction would be nice Cool .

Takes: Wessex Red Virginia, SG Chocolate Flake

I also put a pouch of rum & maple from Altadis(sp). I figured since there were several otc tobaccos in the box I would add this one. I realy like this blend.


Will ship out tomorrow and post confirmation # when I get it.

Thanks Mike for putting this pass on. This has to be the best box pass I have been a part of. THe samples are great.

Great pass egg!

I think TJ is scared to try any new blends, if he likes them then he has to stock up on them. Only so many coolers you can fit in a house. Laughing

The box hit over a three day weekend and we had out of towners. Most everything in it I have tried and pretty much have on hand.

My apologies to all for my apparent lack of inthusiasm. I will make it up by smoking all of the east coast box.

Jason, you are right. The reason I have 70 blends in the cellar is because of Mike.

My three puts are nicely aged and are marked for sampling so as to not be additions to Jim Bobs or Tin Bobs cellars. They are in cahoots.

OK!! It's here! Very Happy

One note: The wessex burley slices tin was open and the flakes somewhat dry (perfect for smoking right now, actually). Each tin in the box was wrapped individually in paper to keep em from banging around in the box and it must have popped open as it fell right off when I unwrapped the paper. If nobody within the next couple of passes wants to claim it it might be good to turn it into a sampler tin.

I am bagging about 1 bowl each for the upcoming week's smoking of these samples:

Black Bayou Mist
Heinrich's
Maduro cut cake
Maltese falcon
Sail
G&H Scotch cake
C&D Epiphany


My takes:

C&D Purple Cow
Astley's 109


My puts are sealed tins of:

Escudo (2006)
Patriot flake (2006)
Frog Morton across the pond (50G from 2004)
Christmas Cheer 2005 (100G)

I'm also adding sample bags of Deacons Downfall from 2002 and Ashton Artisan blend.

Will pass the box off by hand to the rusty one (Tin Man) friday morning.
