    Penzance in an MT poker. Seems like this pipe is going to be dedicated to this blend. Need to find more.

    At 10%(the beer)....who cares?

    I've never had Kendal, but compared to Five Bros....well, I'd say they are similar. Odd, concidering they are Va and burley, respectively.

    Now trying out PS LBF for the first time....not bad.

    Alright, Kendal Dark is a shag cut GH tobacco which has a whopping level of nicotine and a bit of that good old fashioned floral essence - but light enough not to seriously ghost your pipes usually.

    Now smoking: PS LNF cannonballed in the Bjarne. Best smoke I've had in this pipe in ages!:puffy:

    Good evening, everyone. HOTW in my DiMonte. I was long overdue for a nice Virginia.

    What are your thoughts on HotW, Herb? Have you tried Old Gowrie as well? I'm a huge OG fan but haven't gotten around to trying HotW yet.

    I haven't tried Old Gowrie, though I made my way through a fair number of Rattray blends in the past and would like to try a lot more. In my experience, the taste of HOTW can vary quite a bit. If I smoke it a little on the moist side, it tastes particularly sweet and reminds me of a McClelland (and will bite if provoked), but lately I've let it dry more, which gives it a more earthy flavor almost like a Va/Per, even to the extent that I sometimes get a spicy/peppery note. There seems to be an ongoing debate among reviewers as to whether or not there is Perique in it. I usually smoke it in either my DiMonte (which I reserve for Virginias) or my calabash. In any event, it gave me well over an hour of enjoyment (occasionally letting it rest for a few minutes), burned well, and smoked nice and cool.

    Ive just decided to load up my Peterson with some Careys Cavendish mix, should be good for my first full bowl in this pipe.

    I saw an older gentleman earlier on today with his pipe, I was marching in the local Armed Forces day parade with the Air Training Corps (in uniform so no pipe) when I saw the afore mentioned older gentleman inspecting his troops with the pipe hanging from his mouth, just before the parade it's self he took the pipe out and handed it to someone else to look after during the march. It was quite good to see another pipe smoker in person, I would liked to have had mine to hand and had a quick smoke with him. Maybe next time
