    All positive reactions, with no funny looks surprisingly, it was kind of a "hippy wedding" though .

    Dark flake scented in the Cob. I think I am preferring Ennerdale to DFS.

    I love this pipe tamper, it is very nice. Is it briar? Where can I get one?

    It really is all James' fault.

    Trying 1792 flake for the first time in a MM Diplomat.

    Whew, this is interesting. The nicotine is huge, and immediately makes itself known even during the false light. There was an uncomfortable feeling the back of my throat at first, but absolutely no hint of tongue bite throughout the bowl. The flavor is... unique? The smell of the flakes themselves is similar to that of a pet shop like many others have stated, but the flavor that I get seems to change throughout the bowl quite a bit. Large amounts of spiciness at first, then some sweetness popping it's head. Sweet VA taste for a few slow puffs, then vanillaish spices, then burning rubber for a moment, and I don't know if I love it or just like it. Prep seems to be very important with this one, and if not allowed to dry out quite a bit it is a huge pain to keep lit. After the bowl I feel incredibly relaxed, my head is swimming, and the aftertaste is surprisingly pleasant and that of straight tobacco. I don't notice any florals at all, is this supposed to have that? I see a couple tins in my future.

    That scent of 1792 that many often mistake for Vanilla actually comes from Tonka beans.

    Trying samples, Dan's Hamborger Veermaster in a sandblasted Peterson 317, somewhat disappointing after all the hype and search.
    Now Fribourg & Treyer Blackjack a bit better than HV but in the same realm of cigarette ashiness, smoking it in a bent Falcon International with a meer-lined bowl.
