3Oaks Syrian in a Svendborg pickaxe, Bombay Saphire
Nightcap in my Diplomat
Rattray 7- Reserve in my Capet Copstone.
Golden Glow in a Falcon watching the
snails cross the footpath. Kind of lame,
I know, but it's a good way to de-stress.
I'm really starting to like GG!
Savinelli Roma Lucite rustic 602 and first flake from new tin Dunhill Flake now
Snail-watching is arguably just as relaxing as bird-watching, but requires less stealth
SWR in a cob.
Erinmore Flake in a Country Gent with a Forever CW stem. Definitely my favorite way to enjoy a good VA/Burley.
University Flake in a Manx Meer with .
Dunhill deluxe navy rolls in a Wessex standard. All's right with the world...
Carter Hall in a Doc Grabow. Quite possibly the greatest combination I have ever found.

Sitting outside in the cool air smoking GH Brown Bogie in the Mr Brog with strong
Mac Baren HH Highland Blend in one of my Savinelli Autographs.
Condor. I am in love.
McClelland #2000 in a Berkeley Club bent Rhodesian, a bottle of Guinness Draught and my dear wife for company.
PS Luxury Bullseye Flake in a Casseloni half-bent I bought 34 years ago when I was young and optimistic. It smoked great then, and it smokes great now. I'm gobbling this thick, rich smoke like it were ice cream.
Marlin Flake in a Pietenpauw Lovat.
#1 out of a five part sample of mystery latakia blends I received from a fellow PSF member. First time smoking this, no idea what it is or who makes it.
It's nice, well rounded, medium bodied on the palate with just a hint of sweetness and a nice portion of latakia thrown in. Light enough for the first smoke of the day, but still substantial...slightly "bright" tasting despite the healthy dose of lat. I would guess there's a nice portion of Va, too, perhaps. There's some sort of sweet-ish taste I can't pinpoint. I'll be interested in finding out what this stuff is, but so far I like it.
Oh yeah, and it's in my Ben Wade Canadian.
Edit: Must have packed this a lot lighter than I realized. At the bottom 1/3 of the bowl now, and it's really developed in flavor. Still sweet and smokey, but with a little more leather and a definitely spicier flavor than before and a faint hint of an incense-like flavor. VERY nice, imo.
