An English major with a love for the classics, The only way to compliment a good book is with a full bowl of Old Dark Fired and a glass of whisky.

I started as an aromatic smoker, getting off of Menthol Cigarettes, and then I tried St. Bruno flake and I did a 180. I love the taste of Navy Flakes, VaPers, and Burley blends. I am just starting to explore the world of English blends so I am tasting my way through as many as I can get my hands on.
