Welcome back to the Mystery Tobacco Review, the blind taste-testing game everyone thinks they're good at until they're on camera. For this month's episode, we outsourced the selection of our Blend of Intrigue to Mike Flanigan, our Systems Administrator here at Smokingpipes. None of us are quite sure what he does (something with the internet, we think), but the man's got a deep, deep cellar full of delicious tobaccos; so at the very least, we knew we were likely in for a treat.
Join Truett, Shane, and me as we smoke through a bowl of Mike's chosen blend, make observations on tobacco components, flavor, and room note, stall for time, and eventually make our guesses. Did we get it right? Or did Mike prove that it's more than his job that goes over our heads? Tune in to find out.
What is Mystery Review?
For those of you unfamiliar with this little game, each month one member of our team selects a tobacco for us to review in a blind taste-test. Then we gather around the camera, scratch our heads, and smoke, all while attempting to guess the mysterious mixture's components, origins, and name. There's only one rule: There are no rules.
