GLP Robusto in a Peterson Celtic 69
Dondi, you do seem to love that Robusto!
I'm looking forward to cracking open a tin of something when I get home this evening. I polished off the last of my opened tin of Red Rapparee last night. But what to open?
Yep! I had two bowls of aromatics earlier today - K&K 2010 Limited, followed by Erinmore Mixture, but the day didn't seem complete without smoking a bowl of English...
I jarred half of my tin of Robusto, debating whether to take the jar out and finish it all, or to open another English to try - I've got a tin of Spilman Mixture begging to be opened!
Still holding true but we've switched the pipe to a Radice Bark Billiard and the weed to PS LTF
I think you'll enjoy Spilman Mixture if you've never had it before, Dondi. Mine benefitted greatly by sitting for a week open, but with the plastic lid on.
It's an interesting coincidence that while you're wanting to have some Spilman, I'm taking a little break from Spilman to re-evaluate Presbyterian. I didn't much care for Presbyterian straight out of the tin, but the tin has been opened and sat for a month with the lid back on. This made a huge improvement and I earnestly enjoyed the bowl I had last night because I couldn't sleep.
(now smoking Boswell's Pennsy Dutch Treat in the Kaywoodie canadian - rough day, need a gentle blend)
smoking 1792 in the new orlik double bore pot. two observations: first, a lot of people told me double bores are just a gimmick that does nothing for the smoke but this is one of the best smokes i've had in a previously unsmoked pipe, and despite the fact that the tobacco was a soaking wet flake its been considerably drier than a lot of my pipes that have been properly broken in. second, smoking 1792 in a wide bore pipe with a massive smoke hole is like the first time i smoked it all over again, the flavor and nicotine came across like the first time i lit a bowl of this fantastic weed.
i think more orliks may be in my collection in the future, so far i'm 2 for 2 great smokers, and the pipe bag and box look cool as all get out.
I'm winding down after a long day at the office, McC #22 in a Pride cob, lots of coffee on the side!
Century natural in a kings cross . Burned through the Century real quick will get more next tad .Had some SWR in a cob as well and Some Larsen Tradition in my dunhill innertube ... that was fantastic ! After dinner it's gonna be some Golden Extra in a huge wiley ball ..... oh yeah
C&D After Hours in a diplomat.
Finishing up my evening with the kitchen blend of PA/CH/Cherry in a Kaywoodie canadian.
Mac Baren HH Mature Virginia in a Stanwell blowfish, Pepsi-max on the side.
My mix of 40/40/20 CH/PA/McC 5105 in the Falcon, Mickey's big mouth to keep it real.
I am burning through my fourth bowl of Red Virginia in my Pride cob, back to back bowls.
Louisiana Red in a Stanwell HCA.
Tordenskjold Virginia Slices in the Tsuge, then back to work (lord I hate excel today)
Some of my Gitmo Sunrise in a grabow riviera.
Couldn't decide on a new tin to open, so i ended the day with Irish Oak in my LaRocca Gigante (since I had it out to take pictures anyway). That was a l-o-o-o-n-g smoke. Good thing I started earlier than last eve!
On to bullseye flake and bourbon.
black xx twist in a clay tavern.
