Get Me an Invite, Stat!

September 25th, 2008 by Alex

At first, I was checking out these photos of Kendra Wilkinson, one of the “Girl’s Next Door,” with the usual ‘playmate in lingerie at some premier party’ attitude. Then, I noticed something familiar in the background. Something, very familiar.

The Blunt Wrap logo. Plus, something I hadn’t seen before, Kush Cognac.

This party just started combining a few of every guy’s favorite vices: girls, smoking and drinking. So what the hell is this party, and how do I get invited to the next one?

Turns out it was the Great American Run Kick Off Party by National Lampoon at the Playboy Mansion. It took place earlier this month and was a hefty $650 a person to get in, you know, with the GND and Ludacris around…

Generally, National Lampoon has been dropping some really shitty movies on us, but it looks like they know how to throw a get together. If I get wind of their next launch party, and assuming they don’t read the statement above, you can bet your ass I’m gate crashing.

More images after the jump…

Blunt Wrap Magnum: Coconut Vanilla

Blunt Wrap Magnum: Coconut Vanilla

When presented with vanilla-flavored smoke accessories, I tend to hold higher standards. If I believe the product falls even slightly below the bar, then I consider the attempt unsuccessful. Luckily there’s nothing to worry about on this one, Blunt Wrap Magnum: Coconut Vanilla.

Company Blunt Wrap
Made In Domincan Republic
Pros Pleasant aroma
Cons Low on flavor
Price $1.50
tFS Rating 8.0/10

Blunt Wrap fuses two common flavors (coconut & vanilla) to create a pleasant tobacco wrap. Because it’s a double roll, the sheet is extra wide, enough for two adequately-sized blunts. The smell is strong and nice, sweet overtones with subtle hints of coconut oil.

Like always, Blunt Wrap manages to pull off a perfect amount of moisture, an essential part to any presentation. Kingpin, are you taking notes? The smoke is smooth without all of the harsh qualities usually existent in multiple flavored blunts. Unfortunately, there’s no added taste, which (in my opinion) is becoming more regularly neglected by blunt manufacturers.

Bottom line: This wrap should suit the average smoker (and vanilla enthusiast) unless the lack of smoke essence is a real deal-breaker.

Blunt Wrap: Gin & Juice

Blunt Wraps: Gin and Juice

For some reason, alcohol-flavored blunts seem to be popular with manufacturers these days. Blunt Wrap has thrown their own version into the mix with their Platinum Gin & Juice flavored wrap.

Category Blunts
Company Blunt Wrap
Made In Domincan Republic
Pros Good packaging
Cons Low on flavor
Price $1.50
tFS Rating 6.0/10

Made in the cigar-rolling region of the Dominican Republic, Blunt Wrap materials are always quality. Unfortunately, that doesn’t necessarily flow over to the taste and/or smell. BW’s ‘hot-foil’ sealing technique made the blunt perfectly moist and and the serrated edges are easy to roll with. The original leaf smell is almost impossible to pinpoint. I can tell you it doesn’t smell like Gin, Juice or Gin & Juice.

The wrap smokes fine. No surprises really – it burned evenly and the smoke wasn’t harsh. The blunt didn’t give off any distinct taste or aromas while burning. Overall, this one falls short. Gin & Juice is a tough flavor to replicate and the technique definitely hasn’t been mastered yet.


Juicy Blunts: Coconilla 100% Natural Leaves

October 26th, 2006 by Alex

Coconilla Natural Leaves

Hard as it is to imagine, mankind was rolling joints and blunts long before LLC’s were dropping strawberry-flavored wraps. How did they do it? By taking a natural leaf, wrapping it around some crushed herbature and smoking the hell out of it. It was never rocket science, but today’s technology makes enjoying the green leaf easier than ever.

Enter 2006 and Juicy Blunt’s 100% natural leaves. Our staff was looking forward to something more interesting than the everyday blunt wrap. Not sure what to expect, the ziploc-esque bag was ripped open and a strong coconut smell released. The vanilla in these wraps is understated compared to the overpowering aroma of coconut.

Pluck away.

Unfortunately, after the smell, things turn South. The leaves are wrapped in a big, gooey clump. They are covered in a brown, sticky substance that stains your fingers. There is no glue, so these take some real craftmanship to keep together. It’s probably a good idea to let the leaves dry for a couple of hours before using them.

A main aspect to point out is the shape of these wraps. Obviously, leaves aren’t made with perfectly straight edges, neither are these Juicy Blunts creations. The shape of your blunt is going to heavily rely on the shape of the leaf. Straight out of the packaging, getting the greenage tight inside its wrap is close to impossible.

Fortunately, there is an upside, and that’s smoking mother nature’s products. Post-rolling, these wraps smoke like a dream. Light, smooth and full-flavored – you’re going to find a hard time getting a better burn. Overall, we found that the 100% natural wraps are both more work and more reward. I don’t recommend them for the beginner smoker but can definitely see the appeal of these wraps to those willing to put in the work.

Blunt Wrap: Blueberry Burst

September 14th, 2006 by Tim

Blunt Wrap: Blueberry Burst
Ok, enough politics for the day – on to the reviews. Blunt Wrap has released Blueberry Burst ($1.50), their take on the popular fruit filling.

As usual, Blunt Wrap delivers on leaf quality – serrated edges and perfect moistness. Right when opening the blunt you get an intense serving of blueberry. During the roll, you’ll notice it’s more of a confused blueberry scent. Blunt Wrap have mixed something in there that’s hard to identify. Unfortunately, the smoke added no smell or taste, but the leaf itself had a sugary coating on it.

Overall, I liked this wrap. Not too much on the flavor but a solid buy nonetheless.

Blunt Wrap: French Vanilla

August 28th, 2006 by Alex

Blunt Wrap: French Vanilla

We’ve been reviewing some crazy wraps lately, so it’s about time to hit up some of the smoother, more refined flavors. Blunt Wrap French Vanilla definitely falls into this category.

First, Blunt Wrap does a really good job packaging their wraps. The tube + saran wrap method is perfect, and stops the leaf from sticking to itself while being unrolled. The smell hits you full on – it’s less of a pure french vanilla aroma, more of a french vanilla + coffee. While smoking, I was expecting a serious dose of flavor, but no dice with this blunt. It’s the usual case of a perfect scent not being backed up by an equal flavor. Ah well.

On a side note, once out of the packaging, these wraps lose their moisture extremely quickly. So, make sure your homies are on time and roll the leaf as soon as it’s popped up.
