Has anybody tried pipesandcigars Egg Nog? I got some in the mail and tried it and it smelled GREAT capitol G but tasted like licking a ash tray.Did I get a bad batch or is this normal? Anybody think I should order more or leave it alone?Would ageing this help?
Thanks
Bob

I'm not an aro smoker and tried a sample of it recently. I liked it along with their Trout Stream. I sensed no ash tray taste. I doubt if you got a "bad" batch and no, it is not normal. I really don't know what to tell you except try smoking it slow. A lot a times the aros are so mild that we tend to puff hard and smoke them fast and hot.

I was given some Egg Nog a few years ago. I must say that it was pretty good. Very sweet, and the aroma even sweeter. As I remember, I washed my hair to remove the smell. Whilst I enjoyed the smoking of it - I found the smell a but sickening hours after the smoke had finished .....

I would say that it is better than Buternut Burley, which is my usual Aro that I turn to when in need of a sweet smoke.

I can't say it really tastes like egg nog. I like the trout stream better. Better yet, try pipeworks and wilkie, Gramercy Park. My three go to suppliers of aros are Pipesandcigars (Hearth & Home), Pipeworks and Wilkie, and Boswells. I think the last two are better. Far above average and no PG. If you like aros you should try some samples from each of those places. All three worth a try. :)

Sounds like my sort of aro. I'll have to add it to the list.
