Pairing tobacco

I don't drink alcoholic beverages, but anything goes good with coffee. My other favorite beverage for afternoon and evening is A&W Root Beer.

Savinelli 320

I've found that any 320 shape handles English blends quite well.

Haunted Bookshop Smokers...

I've smoked both the bulk and the tin and find the tin less harsh. I'm trying to decide if I should buy OJK in bulk or tin. I've had the bulk but never the tin. This past weekend I bought a tin of OJK and find the tin to be less harsh then the bulk. Mystery solved. Ray the last bulk OJK Ibought was...
