    More of that Irish Oak, now in a Peterson Dracula 03. Tried a little of the fresher Irish Oak and that from the older jar is a sweeter and fuller smoke. Might just be smoking this all day. 19C(66F)H42%
    I don't really know how old the Irish Oak I'm enjoying is. Some where around 2 years since that is when I packed up the box that I found that jar in. I automatically empty most tins in to jars and rarely put a date on them. I find that I like what even a couple of months in a jar does to the way the tobacco tastes, and in the case of moist flakes affects the way they burn.

    Before-dinner the 3rd pipe of the day: My very first, bought in December 1970, a black sandblast Billiard, marked "Lincoln - London Briar", filled with DTM's Bulldog Medium Cut, sort of on the heavy side with lots of Kentucky (and aromatic flakes). Reminds me of Erinmore Flake, with less casing.

    That's not like him, either. Wonder if he's okay? I like Sid.

    Well I don't really own big bowled pipes, none that I smoke that is. I do find it smokes much better in Apple, Prince, heavy walled rusticated Billiard, the Sea Urchin and while I have not tried it yet I would imagine a Bulldog or Rhodesian might do well, of course the Morta pipes I have smoked it in have been fine.

    As far as packing, I simply use my normal 3 step pack then when the first hint of heat appears I do a heavy tamp and it's as right as rain from then on so pretty much you both are spot on here. :toast:

    [​IMG] OK, so my desk needs cleaning, I've gotten over it. Enjoying Five Bros., in a Bullitt Proof cob. My main functions today have centered around the transportation needs of two teenage girls. I've asked for a "soccer mom" t-shirt for Christmas. I will be glad when school starts again.

    WalkinStick talked me into it - smoking a bowl of Peretti Ebony (thanks, YAPPG!) in the Squatch Lean Volcano.

    Firing up some CH...... in my new Butz Choquin! bdp bdp bdp

    It's too damn dark and rainy to get good pics, but it's even better looking in person. I couldn't be happier with it for the price I paid. I'd have paid double what I did. :byg:

    I bought a BC bent Rhodie awhile back and I absolutely love smoking that pipe. With the reasonable price of those pipes, I look forward to another in my future.

    If my subsequent smokes are anything like this one is going, this won't be my last BC. So far, I'm extremely impressed with the craftsmanship and the mechanics.

    Edited to add: I'm actually already eyeballing another
