Some of my taste-related past & present hobbies include: home brewing, wine making, bartending & international culinaria.

NOTES:

* My palatte seems to prefer natural, mild and well balanced tobaccos that embody elegance and subtle complexity. I generally lean towards VaPr, Straight VA, Oriental, Kentucky, Burley and unflavored (or lightly flavored) Cavs, and away from Latika and Aromatic-heavy blends.

* My wishlist doubles as a shopping list and review reminder for things already tried.
