    Just realised that I´ve neglected to specify the stems/bites in my cob. If not otherwise stated they are all standard/ex factory/as delivered.

    I was going to ask you if you had a Pinochle game at the center today.

    Good afternoon gents,
    smoking some Dan's Gold of Mysore in an unbelievably badass black cob made of rock - thanks to rekamepip! :ohyh:
    After that I'm off to the postoffice, to complete a trade with a reptile. Have some good smokes everyone!

    I slept in late today. I dragged myself out of bed(seems to be a common occurrence here lately) and poured a big mug of hot, black coffee. I packed the Diplomat with SWR. I'm puffing on it while enjoying the company of a good buddy.

    I don't put much (ok, hardly any) stock in the reviews on TR. Granted there are a few that can be trusted, like those posted by members of this forum. But, I developed the impression that a lot of those "reviews" are just an effort to see one's name posted and might in reality be re-writes of what they have read/heard rather than based on actual experience. That's just my opinion and everyone is entitled to -- um -- several.

    If you like Borkum Riff, fine. Enjoy. After all you're smoking for your pleasure.

    I wonder if it's too late to get that package back from the post office. :beck:

    In most of the negative reviews there are complaints about the tobacco reviewed burning too hot and giving tounge bite. This is, I think, a dead give away.

    I've noticed this as well. In fact, with just about any review of a product, most negative reviews are from someone who just doesn't know what they're doing and won't seek the proper advice on how to improve their skill.

    True. Of course, we're veering off the rails of the "What Are You Smoking?" thread. I think there was a thread a while back where there were suggestions on how to best read TR with tips how to sort out those to trust based on similar tastes.

    About time for my mid-morning break and a bowl -- Marlin Flake in an Invicta Pipes Rhodesian. :bing:

    Now all you have to do is work on that Old Codger Scowl
    and may i suggest Granger tobacco with a Rock Cob workout
    ( to get those jaw muscles strong like Popeye )

    Up earlier than I wanted to be, but Suzy and Molly were happy about it because it meant they ate chicken and cheese that much earlier. I guess it wasn't enough for Molly, because she's chasing a flying bug for dessert. I'm smoking Dunbar in a medium bend 1983 Ascorti New Dear KS. Simply Orange is my drink though I considered hot tea. Took the path of least resistance.

    Serious change of pace for me, I'm smoking Peretti's Ebony (thanks Dbear!) in a cob. I don't normally even allow aros in my house but this stuff is great. The snork is like fresh baked cinnamon buns. Definitely a nice after lunch smoke. The room note is nuts, too. The boss lady won't be expecting this smell when she comes home and sees me on the porch. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

    Some OGS in a DGE nose warmer. First time trying this blend, don't quite know how I feel about it yet, it's definitely smooth though.
