Lo those many years ago, when before the onset of old age and asthhma, I
smoked a pipe, and particularly liked two widely different tobacco blends.
One was an Irish blend called Erinmore Flake that wrought images of The
Emerald Ilse- a blend that had a softness like the image made with a
Summarit wide open, with lovely bokah. I also like a mixture called Balkan
Sobranie- a rather robust mixture with a stout body, and a smoky aroma from
the yenyje tobacco. Yenegye was supposedly a Turkish style leaf cured over
camel dung fires, and all joking aside was a mild relaxing smoke.
When I chanced upon single malts, I did sample Lagavullin, and have ordered
it regularly since as it has that smoky sweet aroma reminiscent of my
favorite 'other sins' of which I can no longer partake!! It is like silk on
the tongue, a rhapsody of esters and alcohols that somehow make the entire
nervous system tingle! Sorta like sex, as I remember!  :o)
