I was just talking about EGR in a related thread in the Pipe Tobacco forum and I noted that EGR, for me, isn't a real dottle-milker.

In my book, a really good tobacco is a dottle-milker.

What do you call a really good tobacco?
I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

A blend that can be smoked all day and doesn't leave you worn out. A blend like C&D's Pegasus is such a blend for me.
