    So, I spent the weekend smoking NightCap in my new '06 St Pats...
    This morning, on the way to work I decided to break out the new Estate Medco Medalist. It's a smaller bowl, and since i hadn't used it yet, I thought, maybe i'd make it my to/from work pipe. I only have a 15-20 min commute, so this one works out pretty well. Since I was using a new pipe, i thought I'd relegate it to a new tobacco. I loaded it with some Cherry/Vanilla blend and fired up. Oh MY GOODNESS! I could taste the sweetness! After switching between the nightcap and the aromatic, I could actually tell a difference. Maybe I'm growing up??? It's very intesresting... after smoking the aromatic, if I put the pipe down for a bit, there is a very sweet and pleasant aftertaste. I don't think it's a good thing that I'm liking this more... lol

    I've got 2 more estate pipes that I have to try and clean up tonight... now i'll have to find baccy for them. :)

    It certainly takes some practice and some experience to sort out what flavors come from what ingredients, and what toppings work for your palate ... it's a fun trip. Luckily there's a million terrific tobaccos out there so you won't run out of things to play with!

    SWRA being Sir Walter Raleigh's Arse?

    I'm just loading a big Ser Jacopo with some of this new "American Mixture" from STG. Wife says it smells like cotton candy, but it makes me feel like a manly man!

    Haven't tried swra as of yet... they don't have it in town (that I've found) and I hate to mail order an OTC
    Lol
