    • All great blends. Have not had the Shandygaff yet, but it is on the wishlist. I have all of the other blends mentioned and agree that they are fantastic smokes. One that does not get mentioned is Plantation Evening. This blend receives mixed reviews on, but I think that is because it requires a bit more patience and adjustment to a much slower rate of puff to really draw out complex flavor profile. Here is my review on your site: "This blend definitely benefits from a more focused and contemplative smoke. It requires attention and careful as well as measured puffing to enjoy the complexity of the various components, but the time spent is worth the effort. I do understand the l... abeling and the descriptors used so far - mild, middle-of-the-road, etc - but these labels and descriptors belie its interesting complexity. As an earlier reviewer commented, the various components are so well blended that no particular elements stands out. The hint of Orientals are in the foreground early in the puff, but they move a bit to the background halfway through the bowl as the Virginias and Perique become more prominent. Burned nicely with Lino relight and leaves a finish of clean, white ash. And I am left eager to return the next day over my afternoon cup of coffee or Earl Grey." Thanks again for another great blog discussion!

    • Is there a text (or subtitled) version of this somewhere? Thanks!

    • @Tom Haynes We're able to say that all of our videos are captioned. After you hit play, at the bottom of the screen you'll see the YouTube logo and a cog/gear to the left of it. To the left of that is a box with the letters "CC" in it. Click on the box and the captions are displayed.
