Tabac Manil - La Brumeuse 3.5oz
Here it is.
I very much enjoy strong tobacco and this is a pretty strong tobacco. I am also quite lazy and not interested in exploring some sort of multi-stage pipe loading technique that involves algebra and a spring tensioner. Press this stuff firmly into the bowl with your thumb and hit it with whatever you have handy that is on fire. All set. Stays lit and lets you know you are tapping into something big. Great stuff but no doubt polarizing due to its strength. Worth a shot if only due to it being an incredibly unique smoke.
Cornell & Diehl - Crooner
I ordered a variety of burley blends and included a couple ounces of this. Turned out to be my favorite of the bunch. I burned through it in a couple of days and followed up with an order for a pound of it. I smoke an ass ton (Imperial Ass Tons to be precise.) and I usually smoke Tabac Manil Semois. I kind of get the feeling that it is going to go away so I figured I might want to find a backup. I kind of wish it wasnt named after Bing Crosby, who from what I understand was actually kind of a d-bag, but what can you do? Anyway, I quite enjoy this tobacco and find it to be a nice counterpoint to Semois.
