    Went back for seconds
    Rattray Brown Clunee in the little gem, my Castello old antiquary full bent billiard. Mmm I like it, with some Balvenie Signature on the side.
    Can't wait to get home to see if my big gem has arrived, the Sas bent billiard. I suspect this toby will be great in that pipe.

    Maiden voyage for my Tevere 315 ks! McClelland 2045 in it. Biting a touch, but it's a brand new, uncoated pipe. I was a little nervous about what the pipe would be like once I got it, never having held it in my hand and due to the wide, short bowl....but I FREAKING LOVE THIS DESIGN!! :puffy:

    As always, the grain looks WAY better in person than in the photo. There are a couple very small, hardly noticible fills. But hey, it cost less than 70 bucks. It looks damn good, and so far it smokes great, too! I think this is my most "elegant" looking pipe without a doubt

    Ohhhh, my! This Presbyterian mixture is something! I'm REALLY enjoying this tobacco. I think this may be an "Oriental mixture" pipe, for English-type blends with little to no latakia, because so far I enjoy those at least as much, if not often more than, full latakia blends.

    Smoking a B&M house blend called Black Rum in my Sav Bulldog. Very, very satisfying.

    PS Cube Cut in my Bjarne. Could have used a touch of drying time - the cut of this tobacco hides the moisture well. A cold can of Canada Dry raspberry sparkling water on the side.

    Lemon lime is good! I really like La Croix, though. Their berry flavor is great, as is the lemon, the lime, and just plain water. Still haven't tried the cranberry yet though!

    But yeah, I love unsweetened flavored sparkling water. Good and refreshing and with flavor, but no calories and no nasty artificial sweeteners

    Hey, sometimes you'll find basket pipes which smoke better than some expensive ones by well known makers. My Bjarne doesn't smoke very well as I got it and I've had it a few years. I've recently altered it with pipe mud to see if it will start smoking better. Sort of breaking it in all over again before the verdict is reached on that one. It cost me about 80 or 90 bucks, but I have a twenty dollar pipe which looks like hell but it's carved perfectly and is a real treat to smoke in most regards.
