Figured I could use 500g of Grasmere and the Mocha Strips seem like a good gamble so threw a pound on the order as well.
What did you think of the Mocha Strips?
They're good, thinking some age might make them better. Very light, both in nicotine and flavor, no real bass note or mocha flavor. The topping is familiar, I've had some tinned Sutliff blend with it but can't recollect. Wish it had more depth and nicotine, some Kentucky in the mix would have been great for it. I clipped the flakes to fit so most of a pound is waiting patiently for the fullness of time in a jar while I get familiar with the trimmings. Mixed roughly 1:1 with Perique is nice, still feeling this one out but for the price it's a great deal on a aromatic flake. I don't like Cavendish so this works for me as the only other aro I keep around is SWRA.

That feeling you get when you receive an email special from iwan ries that an Esoterica blend is available just for you
when you just spent your budget somewhere else

My big sis in London came through. It's not a pretty picture, but it completes the set.

While perusing the watch city site today I decided that my slices and crumb cut were lonely so I ordered
8oz flake 558
2 4oz packs of the 4th nun returns
4oz nor'easter
4oz ahab's comfort

This is a beautiful sight and a better view of the Mac Baren Flake - can't remember if this was the Burley or Navy.
