I'm not big on straight VAs, and I had some blending Perique, so I
decided to mix it with 8oz of Esoterica Kingsbridge. Since the Perique
is from St. James, I dubbed it Saintsbridge.
Kingsbridge by itself is very dark, and cut rough. It smokes stout,
and is pretty satisfying.
The first bowl, in a Butz-Choquin 3/4 bent, is not keeping lit. Both
tobaccos were on the moist side. I think if I let my pipe rest, it
will sort itself out.
More word as the blend marries, and dries out a bit.
