    My thanks to you for the Briar Fox, BTW...it isn't a mellow sweet VA, but I can live with that! Tasty is all that matters.

    Have to get some more EMP..... at the moment I'm having Timm's No Name Gold, a Flake, in a Dunhill Shell Briar, shape 251, a Billiard..... I'm really digging the No Name baccies! Great value for money!

    Sounds good, Waino!

    Finally got the guts to light up a pipe. Didn't want to make a big commitment to a long smoke though, so I filled a prince with some Peter Stokkebye Proper English. I can taste a little latakia again! It's a nice smoke for this autumn afternoon.

    Once the smoke is over I may miss it. I chose the prince for the shallow bowl and PS Proper English because it's cut finely and burns a little quicker than some others. Still, I'm enjoying it.

    SG is good stuff, and I enjoy scoring and smoking some when it's available (of course I always keep a supply of Squadron Leader on hand; I've even got a tin from about 3-4 years ago that's my "in case of emergency break glass" stash), but it's great to have something like GAF so readily available for day-to-day smoking that's sooo good.

    GAF in my Dunhill Shell Briar. This pipe smokes Virginias, VaPers, and VaBurs best.

    Funny how different people taste tobacco..It was mellow easy smoking to me. I smoke alot of rope tobacco though. Could be the difference.

    Just had a bowl of Luxury Bullseye in a cob...

    A reunion with an old friend: Rattray's 3 Noggins in a Sav Linea '76. I was just filling some recently purchased jars with the contents of some recently opened tins, and I pulled a 10-year-old tin of 3 Nogs from the back of my cellar, having noticed it bulging. I was worried that, my luck, maybe it had molded somehow. I cracked the seal, which made a sound like a can of beer, and found that the bulging was caused by those wonderful Rattray Virginias having matured very nicely, as I was greeted by a nice sweet tangy aroma. Well, I proceeded to put it in a largish jar, but I had to sit down with a bowl.

    Man, is this good. I haven't really been that excited about this incarnation (K&K) before, but given 10 years to mellow the Latakia and sharpen the Virginia, this is a really good smoke!

    I only wish I had a tin of Hal O' The Wynd this old!

    Started the day off with some EMP in a
    CAO meer and Lapsang souchong on
    the side. Not a bad smoke to start off,
    but I like Durbar over the EMP, and
    RRR even more than that. We'll see
    what the day (night) brings.

    50-50 mixture of P&W Nut Brown Burley and Dunhill Flake for a "high class" VaBur in an old Barling's YOW blasted pot. This pipe is great for Sunday during football season cause it's so damn big that I can usually get at least to halftime on one bowl.

    Ennerdale Flake (bulk) using the "air pocket method" in my La Rocca. Next time I'll just use the "normal method" and just smoke my darn tobacco ;)

    Decaf tea on the side, milk and honey.

    I can taste it alright. It's a nice enough smoke tonight. Had a slightly eventful evening, it's good to be home.

    Just had some GAF in my MM Country Gentleman. I'm still a baby to this hobby (7 months now), but a finer smoke I have not had so far.

    Well Jeff, as a seasoned veteran of this hobby, I'd say your assessment is spot on. One of my favorite tobacco/pipe combinations right there.
