    Enjoyed, but there's a "however"

    Posted by Hal on 22nd Aug 2019

    This Navy cavendish crumble cake with its hand stoved red and golden Virginias and a pleasant soaking of rum made it through the blockade with two cakes to the tin. Upon opening, the tin-note was mildly sweet and grassy as expected from the Virginias and the rum was definitely there, but not too strong. The moisture content was "Goldilocks" and crumbled out, loaded and burned nicely. It was a pleasant smoke with sweet hints coming from the Virginias and the rum. Mild and no bite. I tend to like tobaccos with the rum treatment. I liked Blockade Runner at first blush, but I'll finish the tin before decide whether we "Run" together or not. The only negative at this time came from my wife and others in my "pipe appreciating " household who did not like the aroma. In fact, one used the "S" word.... that is "stink" not that other "S" word. I suppose blockade running was and will remain an outdoor sport. Happy piping!
