I must admit the grain of the Olive is superb,

The proof of the pudding will be in the smoking. :lol:

Yes, I had a couple of bowls this weekend. :lol:

I started with the Olive Poker and with one of your samples (can't remember which but I did make a note). I finished that off on Saturday and then chose the Wesleys Full Gold which was less harsh tasting than the sample I originally chose.

I'll try the Briar Poker during the week with another couple of samples.

Sweeeet.... :D

It's been quite some time I had a puff on a pipe. I've still got a lot of choirs to finish at home but as soon as things settle down I will kick of my shoes and pour me a whiskey and relax with a bowl or two. :old

So I've been puffing away on the various samples that I got from Bles and purchased at Wesleys and I've started to build up some nice carbon deposits in the bowl of my pipes.

As of yet, I still haven't decided on any particular "flavour" that tickles my fancy but I am putting a tick next to those I like and a cross against those I don't.

What I can say is that certain blends are lot less harsh than others.
