SWRA is a treasure hiding in plain sight. What stops people from trying it? I dunno. As someone who has smoked pounds of SWRA and never grown bored with it, all I can think is that people don't mind missing what they haven't experienced.
No, not really. Though ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it, ignorance, itself, is not a crime. In some ways, we live in a golden age of pipe smoking, which I'm not going to get into here. In other ways, we're in a pewter age: a mixture of copper, antimony, bismuth and lead. There is so much going on in the upper reaches of the pipe smoking world that the simple pleasures of a reliable daily liqueur-flavored smoke are neglected, forgotten, going the way of the dodo.
I'm biased, if you couldn't tell from earlier posts in this thread, but I don't get all broken up when other OTC blends go extinct or change. To me, they all taste pretty much the same (post all hate mail here, please). SWRA, on the other hand, is truly unique in the best way possible. It is unlike any other OTC and it is unlike any other aro. The only other OTC in this category of distinctive uniqueness, in my opinion, is M79, which is a discussion for another day. That said, SWRA exceeds M79 in every way measurable. 1.) it never rubs anyone's palate the wrong way, and 2.) it's aphrodisiac properties are not limited to Hugh Hefner's pipe. Every man is a playboy when he smokes SWRA. A man with a pipeful of SWRA is a friend to all without any threat of being hashtagged #MeToo.
Get the word out. Join the SWRA movement. Happiness will rule the land. If more people smoke SWRA in the upcoming months, I predict the North Korea/US summit will be a resounding success. Gentlemen, pack those pipes for world peace! The moon will be in the 7th house and Jupiter will be aligned with Mars. It'll be the Age of Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic. Let the sun shine in!
