    Prince Albert in my Grabow Savoy. I swear, Fillmore is one dedicated spectre to have taken up instantaneous residence in both my Savoy and MM Ozark. Still, I can probably banish it back to the ether with a few more bowls of His Majesty.

    After trying it in both my Ozark and my Savoy, I think the Prince is an unpretentious bloke who won't mind spending all his time in an unpretentious pipe, so I'm going to dedicate him to my Ozark.

    If you want an actual number: 8.
    I really like to dedicate pipes to
    blends, so I'm working on acquiring
    more, so I have enough for the 'rotation'
    of blends I favour the most.

    University Flake cradling Irish Oak cradling Irish Flake cradling Old Dublin in the XXL IMP meerschaum. I was going to say that this combination could get to be habit forming, but it already is. Small Laphroaig with a dinosaur ice cube rounding out the evening.

    Which Laphroaig are we talking about
    here, OC? Actually, any of the expressions
    are an excellent choice. :th1:

    The 16. I seem to reach for that the most often. Quarter cask every now and then.

    Old Malt Cask. I should actually look at the bottle before responding.

    What did it for you? More dry time? Different loading technique?

    What I suspect to be McClelland's Captain Cool, courtesy of NickWilliams. Aro's are not my specialty, but he gave me a clue.

    I just emailed it to you, as I've yet to grasp the whole picture thing. It's a take on an Emil Chonowitsch shape that really caught my eye. Very subdued, but therein lies the beauty - if any little bit was off, the pipe would look ridiculous. As it is, the simplicity of the lines are stunning, and the attention to detail is terribly impressive.
