I’m not an expert like many of the posters on here but I’ve had some pretty disappointing experiences with the C & D blends I’ve tried. I find them to be a bit “young” tasting if that makes any sense. I’ve also had two mold issues with items coming out of their factory (Oak Alley and Temple Bar from their GL Pease production). Of all the blends I’ve tried I’d say Red Carpet, Sunday Picninc, and the non-moldy Oak Alley I’ve smoked have been my favorites. I really want to like them since they’re so prolific but I just haven’t found a blend that gives me that “Aha!” feeling.
