Arrow Blind Pipe Tobacco Review!!

I need 3 members to sign up to smoke 2 different VA based blends. I don't want you to guess what blends they are, just review them on tastes and which ones you prefer.

1.
2.
3.



edit: you have to do the reviews. it's for science, the betterment of your fellow pipe smoking man. don't do it for a few free bowls of tobacco. old/new smokers, don't matter to me, as long as it's done.

I saw which ones are involved, but I don't "know" either of them

I wouldn't be able to distinguish them or have any preconceived notions

it wouldn't actually be a blind review if i have both blends.

If no one else wants to do it then i will, it has been awhile since I have had HOTW anyway.

I have old Gowrie that is getting some age. If you want it to be a truly blind review you can send me a sample. I don't have HOTW though

sound good. you're the 3rd as well, nobody else replied. i'll need your address in PM, then i'll work on the samples to send out.

edit: got the PM'd addresses. will PM you all back when i ship. they should be labeled with only an A or B on the baggie. when it's over, i'll tell you which is which. don't want to know if you can figure out which one is which, this is simply a review, not a challenge.

Ahh, missed it by a day. Look forward to reading the reviews! Took part of one of these before, and it's fun trying to figure out what you taste and what you think is there, especially if you didn't know what type of tobac it was; especially if you don't know how strong it is; first few puffs of the tobac I reviewed threw me to my knees!

i remember that one, richard.

----

everyone, samples were shipped today 1st class mail, no DC #s though. should be enough for 2-4 bowls of each, depending on size of pipe you use.

i won't post any formula to follow for reviewing, i just want to hear your impressions, please post them IN THIS THREAD for blend A and blend B. i don't care which order you smoke them in or review them. it's all up to you.

I'm not use to all of this freedom. It's like moving from China to Norway.
