Thanks for the feedback. I have a lot of Latakia based blends, and wanted to see how the Syrian does with age. I prefer it over Cyprian. Sort of the idea; does it keep it's perceived edge over Cyprian as time goes by. Would love to find 5 year old tins of McClelland 3 Oaks Syrian and G.L.P. Westminster. As for what is in my pipe, I have a home blend I've been experimenting with. I bought several jars of Jewel of St. James Perique. Working on a VaPer that is pretty damned good. I added some Burley to it a week ago, and let it sit. Not bad at all. Cuts down on the bite, and the VaPer aspect is still very dominant.
