Deep Hollow, Boswell poker
Bob's Chocolate Flake in a Brebbia, Baileys on the side.
C&D Burley Flake #3 in my Dr. Grabow Omega. Haven't smoked this pipe in ages. It's a decent smoker.
UF in a general
Just finished a bowl of Nightcap in a Dunghill. The puppies and my wife are sleeping -David
An "All-Canadian" smoke was the order of the day (even though the pipes are now made in Italy and the tobacco was blended in Germany):
Boswell's Peaches & Cream in my Peterson #303 African Meershaum...
Whoa, that is a cool pipe! You wouldn't happen to have a full-color picture of it would you? I've never seen one like that (and I own a smooth 303 briar, which I love very much, and I'm a bit of a 303 nut).
I just got done smoking some Hal O' The Wynd in my Savinelli Roma 626. Nice little pipe, fantastic tobacco. That's one of the top 5 Virginia's I've ever had; the taste is so nice, and the SMELL of that stuff when it's burning is what I would like my house to smell like all the time. Too bad tobacco smells turn kinda crappy once the smoke goes stagnant. But yeah, I love HOTW. I need to try some more Rattray's products, such as Old Gowrie and Red Rapparee.
Is that a Sasieni pipe? Also, are they Canadian pipes, or am I going nuts here, or what? I thought they were English.
The pipe is a Brigham Algonquin 2-dot Bulldog #216
Yeah, here you go, it is one of if not my favorite pipe, just the right size & shape, it hangs perfectly and smokes great...
That is one awesome lookin pipe BB... Thanks for sharing that pic! Smoking some SP Whiskey in one of my Legends.. Darn.. I need to get some more tobaccos..lmao
Just had some Balkan Sobranie in my Peterson St. Patrick's Day Canadian. That pipe has a hell of a tall bowl on it, and it's taking me a good long time to get much of a cake built up. I think I'm making a bit of progress, though. I think it's about to be time for a cigar here in a minute, if I can stand to sit outside for that long smoking. I think it's in the mid-high 20's right now, but mercifully there's no wind, so I should be fine to smoke a cigar.
Smoking some Nightcap in my Soren freehand, having been inspired by David's thread on that blend. And it's oh so good.
Bob's Chocolate Flake in a Baki.
P&W 400 in a Tinsky.
Just found a bit of CH that I thought was smoked. Loading the legend, just enough for one bowl. Pleasant surprise it is.
Lane 1-Q in a bent DG
Having some Hearth and Home Larry's Blend for my breakfast smoke in my beloved Neerup bent sort-of-Dublin-sort-of-Egg. Such a tasty blend. Having that along with a nice, large mug of coffee and a bacon and egg biscuit from the diner up the road. Small pleasures are the nicest kind of pleasures.
I just read an interesting little tidbit about Samuel Gawith, whilst reading an article about Kendal, the town in Cumbria, England where said firm is located. Apparently, Samuel Gawith and Co. employ the oldest piece of industrial equipment still in production use in the entire world, a piece of equipment manufactured in the 1750's. Shame that they don't mention WHAT kind of equipment it is, but I guess we can have fun guessing. And since we were just discussing tins, I put forth the suggestion, here and now, that perhaps it's the piece of equipment they use to tin their tobacco. Interesting stuff.
Good Morning All,
I'm gonna have Shortcut to Mushrooms in my Brebbia Brasil with my black coffee on the way to work this morning. It's been awhile since I had STM, maybe 2-3 weeks. I'm looking forward to it!
