    Smoking a big bowl of McClelland 2035 Dark Navy Flake in the Johs bulldog. It's been a while since I've smoked this, I almost forgot how good it can be!

    Just earlier: Caledonian 421 in a Claridge.
    Found a small container of it in an old pipe
    case. Just one more bowl left, but it's kindling
    now. No sense in rehydrating one bowl's worth.

    I gotta say I'm a big fan of the Irish Oak. Good stuff.

    Finished the 2035, went straight to a bowl of Balkan Sasieni in the Savinelli Tevere prince to finish off the night. I was going to stop after the long smoke I just had, but I loaded this bowl yesterday, sealed it up, and then never smoked it. I don't want to wait till tomorrow, it would get too dried up, even when sealed. That would disgrace this fine blend....yeah....that's why I'm smoking it now....not gluttony! :oops:

    Seven Russians in a Dunhill County Prince. :(

    Now that the jar's empty, I guess I get to open up a new tin! Maybe time for a GLP blend?

    Night Train in a Peterson System XL305 before work. This is easily among my favorite VA based blends. Just enough perique for a little spicy intrigue, just enough burley to add some backbone and balance a little bit of the sweetness, but still enough VA to possess a decent sweetness. This stuff is pretty close to perfect if you ask me.
