Default Color?

Last night I was smoking some Dunhill A30000 Black Cavendish and I was thinking about how to describe the taste of it. The only way that I could describe the taste of it was saying it tasted like a "soft blue" color. It was weird. Want to know if anybody else describes flavor like that.

You are way out of the box. Look what thinking out of the box got Enron. Maybe you should slide away from Dunhill blends. I think you may need a few days in "Time Out" but I'm sure there are still a few around who can taste in color and hear with smell.

Tricky area - different forum, too.

You must have synaesthesia.

Yes, I had to look it up.

From the description of the sensory scrambling, I'm pretty sure that's 1792 Flake repackaged for Dunhill...

Novel idea, smoking blue.

Good point, 1792 flake. Some folks smoke 1792 and say they feel green.

Great pull from Webster's, "synaesthesia", too.

This pipe forum is gonna be one of the greats.
