I just placed a very fruity order of tobacco tins this evening:

-Panama Jack Piña Colada ('cause I like making love at midnight and getting caught in the rain)

-PJ Key Lime (because I've always liked key lime pie since I was a wee WK)

-PJ Mango (because I was on a roll buying fruity PJ blends---what's one more?)

---NOT PJ Daquiri (because the tin has a picture of strawberries on it and 1.) I don't particularly like daquiris, and, 2.) I am allergic to strawberry flavored pipe tobacco)

-Stanwell Melange (because if I'm going fruity, I may as well go upmarket and not just keep myself in the Panama Jack pool)

-SWRA (because I like making love at midnight-----ladies love SWRA)

Has anyone tried any of these? I don't have high hopes, but, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm sure I've smoked worse. We'll see.

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.

I have had the SWRA, but you knew that. I have nothing on the rest. We will be looking for some reviews!

I bet they are all very smokable and will attract Jimmy Buffet groupies from every corner of New Orleans. Just beware of the dudes.

I like fruity drinks while I smoke my pipe but I'm not sure about fruit IN my pipe. It's kinda' like beer and BBQ, I once tried a beer that had a smokey flavoring to it and while they're practically made to go together I quickly realized that I'd prefer to keep my BBQ separate from my beer. ;) I'll be interested to know what you think of your new blends. :D
As for the video... The Pina Colada Song was and still is one of the most over played songs in radio history. Much like Debbie Boone's You Light Up My Life of 1977, the first 50 times I heard it it was OK but once it reached the 1000th time I began to have violent involuntary reactions to it! :lol:

I always forget about those villiger blends. They really are good. Not a tobacco I find satisfying to smoke but really tasty for sure

Stanwell Melange is a high quality, very tasty, aromatic. Apricot & vanilla is what I get from it. I keep about 4 tins of it around.

The mailman came with a box today:

I'm smoking my first bowl of Panama Jack Key Lime as I write this. Man, this is some lime-y tobacco. My scurvy has been cured!

It's also pretty good, flavor-wise. Much better than I expected. Though the tin note will knock you down with it's lime and meringue scent, and its' palette note is lime-y over a mixture of Virginia, Burley, and Black tobacco, there hasn't been a gurgle in the bowl (and I'm almost finished). I get a gurgle from SWRA, but not with this jokey Panama Jack blend. Thumbs up.

I'm enjoying it. I usually smoke one tin at a time and I'll prolly be doing that with Panama Jack. I like the Key Lime. The lime is the key to this tin's success. Without any topping, I doubt this blend would knock it outta the park, but the lime is a nice top note that really makes it a pleasure to smoke. YMMV, of course.

Tongue bite? No. This is like the end of dinner at grandma's house. I like it. I am not a fan of Panama Jack in any other sense (sunglasses, shirts, whatever), but I think this is a tobacco worth trying if you want something refreshingly different. I'm giving it one thumbs up and reserving my other thumb until I've proven to myself that this isn't a one-note smoke. It could get tiresome. Stay tuned.....

I am imagining a pinch of that Key Lime tobacco with some Brown Flake Scented. Coke with Lime.. or maybe Cuba Libre :)
