Sillem's Blue in a Dunhill Man Meer.
Just finished another bowl of UF. About ready to do a review, not really too keen on this flake.
Thanks to Snake, a bowl of G&H Brown Irish Twist in a Falcon. Would be a mug of English Breakfast tea with it, but I spilled it sitting it down. Dang, it's cold out here.
Sillem's Blue in a Dunhill Man Meer, again.
50/50 mix of CH and 5100 Red Cake, WoW me likey
Boswell X-mas cookie in Boswell free hand
Christmas Cheer in Donegal Rocky 06
PS Sweet Vanilla in the Sultan Meer.
I had some GH Bosun Cut Plug today at the pipe shop. Picked up another tin of SG Sam's Flake (hadn't opened the first one, this one is to smoke), a pipe lid, and a little Oliver Twist to try. Not a big fan so far, but it's okay I guess. For tonight I'm drying a slice of the Sam's Flake....it smells like cinnamon and apple to me. I'll have it in the Peterson System probably.
Back to back bowls of Esoterica Cardiff, thanks again to Snake...AND my childrens' inability to STFU!!! Freezing my stones off, but hey...i'm liking this one!
Anyone know of a good military school? (The Naval Academy doesn't count.)
If you're looking at the college level, I recommend the Citadel (The Military College of South Carolina) in Charleston.
I'm looking more along the lines of a pre-teen penal institution....
Why not just try and sell them for medical experiments?
Smoking Five Brothers in a E. Wilke pipe, actually I'm not sure what shape it is... -David
Because biology boned me. My wife has some objections thanks to 'maternal instinct'. What a load...
Oddly, smoking Five Bros. in one of your clays, D.
Too bad (the fictional) Bunker Hill Academy closed...
O.K... maybe not. (warning, low quality and jump to 1:15)
Beautiful meerschaum t-bear, I really like the shape and style of that pipe!
I just finished a big bowl of SG Golden Glow in a Wiley freehand.
Here in Indiana we have Howe Military School, which I understand is along the lines of what you're thinking, and Culver Military Academy, which is where really rich folks send their kids, so I assume it's not quite as miserable.
At jpberg's behest (and owing to his generosity, of which I'm not entirely worthy) I'm doing a side-by-side comparison, for which I invoke the Latakia Fists of Power: in one hand, Capt. Earle's Ten Russians in a Bari Squash. In the other, Capt. Earle's Stimulus Package in a Bjarne Freehand Lovat.
P.S. Don't ask how I'm typing this.

Well, how are they? I'm not sure I have the tastebuds for blends that powerful, so would like to live through you.
They are both very good, though I favor the Ten Russians. Of course, comparing something as full of intense flavor as these tobaccos takes some time and probably a few more bowls, but I'm sure this will be the topic of an upcoming thread (I've promised this before, but I'm committed this time). I was puzzled when Stimulus Package was released as to what if any differences there were. They share almost the exact same tin description, so I thought at first that it was more about marketing, though I don't think that's Hermit's game. SP, at this time, seems just a little thinner in the backbone than TR. I suspect a little more Virginia is in play with TR, and I detect just a hint of the weird Lakeland-esque flavor hiding in the SP, something that Hermit's Thumbs Up Blend delivers in spades (I really don't care for that one at this point). Not enough to detract from it, but I think it's in there.
