    Great pix and lots of food for thought, Crawford. I like both of the blends you bought but favor the Lakeland Dark, which I have well represented in the cellar drawer. Knowing you liked the black twists makes me think the LD will please you a little-- but I seem to remember you hanker for the mighty Condor from time to time, which gives the Bosun a shot, too. Looking forward to your take on both.

    Thanks for the post and the photos, Crawford. What a fantastic tobacconist's shop that appears to be. I'm more than a little jealous.

    Just for the hell of it I mixed a touch of the Bosun Cut with the Lakeland Dark and it turned out to be even more Condor like. Nothing wrong with the LD on its own Billy it's a fine tobacco but for me just lacked taste. Although surprisingly I was smoking a bowl of it half an hour ago and my wife commented on the 'nice smell' which threw me a bit.

    Cheers Anthony. It's a very nice shop to visit and browse although their prices are a bit on the high side for my liking.....no wonder the cat is fat.
