Cornell & Diehl - Burley Flake #4 2oz
Less than a third of the way through my second bowl, I started chuckling. Later I happily told my wife that this blend kicked my a$$. As with a stout or a virile porter, this is a mouthful that you taste all the way in the back of your throat. One-pint limit. This is a blend to smoke across the table from Strider in a dark corner of the Inn of the Prancing Pony at Bree--as an elder local whom Strider has judged not to be a girly-hobbit--or a blend you smoke with Robert Mitchum at a rural still in Kentucky after making a run on Thunder Road. It may bring its own version of too much Izmir. I realized I had to slow down, like you should if you are going to enjoya full plate of bauernfruhstuck. I smoke it in a vintage GBD prince which I have dubbed "The Burley Bowl." Pipe as crucible. Good in the evening about every two week when I am in the mood for an arresting attitude adjustment. Taste is excellent and distinctive.
