Solani ABF in a Santambrogio.
ERR Match in this...
Morning coffee with a bowl of Classic Virginia in a cob.
BR original in a MM washington
RRR in a Brebbia Ninja. Smoking hot, a surprising contrast to the same leaf smoked over the weekend in some other briars...
4noggins Essence of Vermont in a Peterson bent bulldog.
Had some Kickin' Chicken in my MM Hardwood on the ride to work this morning.
Yes the tin is a new one, it's just there for effect, I don't have an original tin for the sample, you can really tell how the years have mellowed this tobacco but it doesn't taste "old" at all, it has aged very well.
How is that Essence of Vermont? I've just recently tried Weybridge and it's quite good, so I ordered some Double Fantasy with my last 4noggins shipment. Rich seems to know what he's doing, based on what I've read.
CH in a MM egg
Spicy ketchup in what I hope is still a Crown Viking,
I enjoy the Essence of Vermont. Makes a nice morning smoke with black coffee. Not too sweet or mapley to the point that it masks the tobacco, just a flavour and smell that comes through gently. The maple is there, you don't have to hunt for it, but not like taking a shower in maple syrup. Burns well and doesn't leave any goopy residue on the bowl rim.
If you like Weybridge but want something a little fuller try Prairie Wind or Painter Hills.
4Noggins has been good to deal with. I started dealing with them as I work my way through all the Peterson tobaccos. Now it looks like I'll end up trying out most of 4noggins' blends.
I will listen later because I don't turn off Chet Atkins for nobody!!! haha
On topic, H&H in a Patriot with some super strong Kimodo Coffee from Starbucks. Didn't buy it. It was a gift.
Next up is Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley in my Davorin Morta Billiard. Mmm, it's a little cocoa-ish!
First time smoking Orlik Bull's eye in full bent 'Mayfair', so far I like it, strong enough for me but at the same time mild enough to smoke all day.
Sutliff Charlemagne in the bent Peterson Aran....recently whiskey cleaned...
Half and Half in the MM Legend, with some black coffee
Dark Plug in a meer.
Lunch break with Boswell's Best in my Sav Luxor.
Lane BLWB in a bent DG
