This was good but very strong. I only go for more mild aromatics, although a friend wanted to try something more like a cigarette. Still too strong for a pipe.
A super smoke with just the right amount of Perique !
Haunted Bookshop is a blend that grows on you. When my son bought it for me I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like it. I occasionally smoked it for a couple weeks giving it a chance. I had to learn to smoke it slowly to keep it from getting a ashey taste. Now I have it matched to the proper pipe and I find I smoke it every day. A pipe with a wide shallow bowl seems to work best, or a cob. It’s an acquired taste for sure but well worth the time and patience. I will keep a jar full from now on.
Dry pillowy smoke, slightly sweet and bitter, very nutty and a tiny bit of spice
HB is a 'cult' favorite with the members of at least two of the FB pipe-smoking groups, but I'm not with 'em. I found it too strong and lacking in character and flavor. I've never smoked a cigarette in my life but this blend had me thinking it was comparable to that. I tried three bowls, but it failed to please so I shipped the remaining (which was a lot!) to a fella on one of the groups who was curious about it.
