Nah their Rind line definitely crosses over into Bark territory (more and more it seems). Hell the o/c Rind I'm smoking right now could have been called a Bark - but that line was Officially discontinued.
This is exciting! I instituted a pipe acquisition freeze after ordering the POY, but in the last week my resolve crumbled and I bought 2 estate pipes. Hopefully the news and images of these POYs will be enough to keep me from continuing to indulge. Those stummels look gorgeous, I want to take a bite out of one.
Excellent news, indeed!
I suspect there will soon be a multitude of dancing bananas 'round here.
"Crunchy" is an excellent word for those stummels, too. And to think that I used to look down on rustication...
