    Hey there Jerry!
    The Wessex Gold Brick has all the earmarks of a good Va, done mild.
    The 100g plugs work out to around $4.34 an oz. and make for a perfect companion smoke to HV and Altadis 507c. Same flavor profile, just a little lighter yet not cigarettish at all

    Sounds like a nice easy smoke for when the pallets worn down.. I'll have to give it a try.

    Any time you smoke a bowl of Dark Flake unscented to the bottom with only six relights and no bitterness you feel like you've done something. I was also weedeating, so two somethings.

    Dark Flake unscented in a MM Egg.

    Irishman's 5 O'clock (Steven Books House of Calabash) in my Neerup. Steven Books is a seriously amazing tobacconist, really and truly. I ordered three of his blends, and all three are absolutely amazing. This could be a bad sign because his stuff is expensive... or it could be a good sign because with pipe tobacco like this, I will buy a hell of a lot fewer cigars. This may sound foolhardy, but I might just say screw other stuff and only buy from this guy if the rest of his stuff is this good. And I'm sure it is.

    Okay, I'm gonna have to do most of my packing over the next three days, so I'm gonna have to lay low on the pipe smoking a little more than normal. Hoping to get to bed early tonight and up early tomorrow. So I'm rocking some General White portion right now. I'll still make room for a couple bowls a day, but none of that 6 bowls a day business :whis:

    Finished the last of the Mick McQuaid (finally) in
    a Sav 316KS. Been a rather uneventful day, which
    is just fine by me.

    Back to my regular bowl of IF. This time, in my Webco bulldog. Just as good as I remembered it to be!

    Grappa and strong tobacco were made for each other. I lived in "Little Italy" when I first moved to Vancouver and became quite fond of grappa and some small Italian cigars that were popular among the older guys in the neighbourhood.

    Starting a very late day with PS English Oriental Supreme in the Pete.
