Gather around we'll tell you a story; a story of a man named Joe, who dreamt a dream of a Virgina blend like no other. Waking up, he wasted not a moment in scribbling down his notes, before that half-awoken haze could pass, and full consciousness could see what he had seen in his dream drifting back to some un-recall-able corner, lost amongst the waking contents of his own cranium. That dream was of Mississippi River, a concoction pressed and rich, of Virginias, Latakia and Louisiana Perique, and perhaps, at some point in its course, the mighty river itself may have whispered, "Blend it and they will come.
Well, all my overboard attempts at myth-making aside, two things are for certain: Joe Lankford did blend it, and they have come. "They" being the reviews, and their testament has been that this mixture is every bit as solid as anything the waking world has ever offered.
