Good evening Ed, asp,
I received my TAD order today and immediately opened a tin of MacB Honey
and Chocolate and smoked a bowl. It was not what I was expecting and the
jury is still out on it. It was far less sweet than a good VA which was
a surprise as my past experiences with cavendish had me expecting goo.
In fact, it wasn't sweet at all. �Initial impression was that it tasted
alkaline and dry and bitter chocolate, not much in the way of honey
aroma in the smoke, though it was noticeable in the tin. I think
tomorrow I will try mixing it with some sweet va, possibly G&H Rich dark
�honeydew or 5100.
I had the same reaction to H&C. I love the tin aroma but the smoke...not
so much. At first it was growing on me but it seemed to hit a wall and
I'll try mixing it with some straight virginia and see what happens
though honestly I don't have much hope. Maybe if the H&C is used as a
MacB VF in a Stanwell.

I haven't tried it but I wonder what butternut burley might add to
sweeten it a bit. Mary
