Have this Sav Blue Alligator loaded with true Old Standby...a 1:1 blend of Low Country VaBur & BLWB. For me it scratches the itch for a bit of burley strength with just a touch of sweetness. I've tried it with other sweet OTCs like LRR in place of the BLWB, but none of them hit it just right. But now that I've got the original mix going on (thank you, @Fr_Tom ), I'm kicking back to some real tobacco enjoyment. Ahhhhhhhh! :thumbs:
And another of the same.
Aaaaaaand again!

Gentlemen,

Right now Im about to smoke my second bowl of the Brazilian version of St Brunno. It is actually called Finamore Fruit e Floral.

Now, this is a great blend. Has a medium to high nicotine content and the flavor is great. However...
At the end of the bowl there is a note... a funny one...

At the end of the bowl, it tastes and smells like... well... weed.

Yes. Pot.

Funny isnt it? Unless I have a neighbor playing pranks on me it should be just a faint note.
You have a weed ghost? Is this a pipe that has had another "life"?
It doenst! I dont smoke weed and I certainly dont detect that note on other blends on the same pipe...
This is getting interesting! hahahahaha

You're so right, Padre. Ya know, sometimes we talk about "desert island blends", and I think this one would do it for me.

Image without substance. Ok... I'm done. I refuse to rant! Lol!
I would really like to blame generation Z (late millennials)for hipsterism, but it seems to have occurred before they were old enough to really participate. I do think they have grasped to it a lot more than Y, since there are far more of Y that still identify with the values of the previous X. What I can say is that Gen Y and Z seem to be victims of not having a lot of the same things to worry about that previous generations did(real war and the aftermath). I have concluded that since they can't derive national identity from a sort of shared experience(tragedy tends to form community and social closeness).. they feel the need to seek some identity for themselves in the far fringes of individuality. Literally like grandma used to say, "Idle hands are the devil's tools", really rings true. But I digress.. this bowl of PA is really hitting the spot, and I am sitting here watching a thunderstorm roll in and enjoying the hell out of it.
You must be really fun at parties. Lol
You assume that I have real life friends that would invite me to a party. :lol: Seriously though.. Couple shots of Tequila and I am dancing on the table in a tube top.
