PA in a Kaywoodie.
Two bowls this morning, since the dog dog decided I needed to get up really early. Started with P&W 400 in a Squatch dublin, then moved to some Margate in a Tinsky.
Pelican (thanks, jmiket91) in, what else, my Dunhill chestnut.
...and I'm out of scotch again! :growl:
GLP Odyssey in a Dunhill Shell 660, Macallan 12 on the side.
Doesn't get much more classic than that. Welcome.
C&D filled to the gills on this:
Hot coffee to wake.
It's a Winslow Crown Viking. Nice smoker but MT has got this one "beat" for sure! :growl:
cogito ergo puff
Craig Stark's Blend from C&D in a Tinsky apple... there's a lot going on in the bowl, latakia-perique-burley-cavendish with a coconut topping!
I couldn't really smell the topping in the pouch, and the coconut flavor is only noticeable in the first third of the bowl... just barely.
What does jump out at me is the perique, while the latakia and burley are just constantly present in every puff.
Good leaf, easy to pack, strong nic, and it all burns down to a nice white ash. :growl:
C&D Epiphany is supposed to be a Revelation lookalike. check out this page http://www.cornellanddiehl.com/tobacco_spotlight.htm
C&D Billy Budd in a Dunhill inner tube 196, BenRiach maderensis fumosus on the side. Welcome smoke after de-matting and grooming Shadow, my persian cat. Haven't groomed him for a week
Maple street/PA mix in a briar cauldron.
My brand new peterson pipe with a new favorite blend...a wonderful afternoon indeed.
Burns Blend(local toby store blend, English) in my Freehand Cob,(cant seem to put this thing down lol) Sweet ice tea, and some Dreamtheater blasting!!!!
Solani - X sweet Mystery in a Kaywoodie
Peterson University Flake in a MM Diplomat.
Penzance from Puff in a pipe from Sas.
smoking more revelation in the same guildhall canadian.
this stuff is REALLY good. I'm wondering if anyone who's smoked it knows of a good match, i have epiphany (which i kinda like) and i know its supposed to be one, but i just dont see resemblance. I'd love to make this my every day smoke, but thats just not gonna happen...
I'm working on a time machine...I just need some seed money to get it off the ground.
Tried out GLP Quiet Nights in a Celtic 69.
This is the latest blend from the master blender Greg Pease, so there's little or no aging on the blend yet. Still, I think this is going to be a classic! I will definitely be putting in an order for my cellar, and will look forward to tasting it again in years to come.
The blend comes in broken flake that felt slightly moist, so I let it sit for fifteen minutes. It then filled easily in a group 4 pipe, and the smoke lasted for about 90 minutes. Was a bit hard to get the ember going, but once lit, it burned beautifully to the end and left nothing but white ash.
The flavor is a strong english, with the virginia and latakia well balanced. The perique is very noticeable in the snork. Good nicotine kick as well. In summary, this is a full-bodied English flake (stronger in flavor than Old Dublin) with a perique highlight thrown in.
Lane 1Q in my MM freehand cob, sweet ice tea.
Giving Escudo another try in an Italian second, its starting to grow on me maybe, I'm halfway through my first tin I got about a week ago.
