Just a quick note to let y'all know my order arrived yesterday. This blue smoke is absolutely fabulous. I'm a sucker for blue and would have been happy with any ole shade of blue, even a pastel--but this stuff kicks out the most remarkably lush deep blue-purple smoke. My mouth drops open with every sample I light off. Said it before: y'all rock. Mike McCool, Eugene, OR
