Anni Kake in a country gent.
Well the tub of Sugar Barrel and DGE cob are still sitting next to me, so I am smoking that combo again.
Dunhill Navy Rolls folded and stuffed in a BST Rhodesian shaped pipe...Side of Buillet Bourbon and water.
Microwaved FVF from 2008 in a Nording bent apple.
Had a few bowls of EMP this morning. Planned to get a few more bowls in but I had a busy day of beer shopping...
This: A Rewster-fied cob filled with Devil's Holiday
I guess i'm having a senior moment tonight, but I just can't place Beam Black. I've known white for years and every now and then when I'm not overcome with TAD, I have some Devil's Cut, which is fantastic! What the heck is Black?
Starting the day with ten Ruskies, in spite of my seeming immunity to nicotine I decided not to start with the JackKnife plug. Too much conscious effort so early in the day. I love playing with tobacco but not before the front half of the brain kicks in. It is times like this that the easy smokability of CH and SWR really shine through. I don't got no brains yet.
Cambridge Flake and Lat, 50/50, smoked in a 50 yr/old Medico Gold Crest Apple. Got another Coke at hand in the frozen mug with some homemade ice cubes floating around within the mug. It's amazine how they keep the coke so cold.
Beam Black is an 8yr aged bourbon. Same as White label, just aged 5 more years.
The last of this sample from Marker of Orlik Golden Slices in a 2013 MM straight Legend. I sure enjoyed it, and am aging a couple of tins now.
What a great day, and a beautiful evening it has turned out to be! Have I ever told you how much I love Saturdays? Oh, Well...never mind then. I'm smoking G. L. Pease Telegraph Hill in the DGE Briar Nosewarmer. Lemonade, chilled to the proper temperature for butter, is my drink. No "Pipe Club" tonight. MDaws79 had another engagement, of some importance, apparently. Jack Wagon's got to go to work in a couple hours ( I did see him today). So, it's me here, and you there. Puff on!
About to fire up some Kentucky Club Continental Blend in a Grabow Omega, with cold water on the side...while working on the Zebra Puzzle...
A while ago , the boys and I went to walk some streams on the property . I smoked CH in the Medico Cavalier ...
Joseph walkin a stream ..
Heres a couple of those cool magic orange mushrooms I keep talkin about ..
Pretty cool , huh . Theres others but I like those two best
Smoked some more Germains Royal Jersey Perique in the Wickermanclay ! Awesome
Ruffinogold. That first mushroom may not be something that you'd want to play with. Photo isn't clear enough to be sure.
XXL IMP meerschaum loaded to the top with University Flake cradling Irish Oak. This ought to last me through Tank Girl, unless I start puffing in rhythm with Lori Petty's singing during the Silver City scene. 15C(59F)H66%
A very pleasant dusk this evening. I love dusk in the summer time. I can hear that metal crack of an aluminum baseball bat coming from the park not too far away. Sitting on the patio with a very flavorful vanilla aromatic from the local shop (house blend), listening to the crickets. I'm smoking the first pipe I ever bought, a bent MM Legend. Lovely.
Pease Stratford in a Skovgaard bamboo shank elephant's foot, accompanied by some Knob Creek.
Listening to MLB talk on the XM, working, and smoking Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a tan etched medium bend 2001 Rinaldo Sahara 2 Acorn round at the shank, pointy at the opposite top. Ice water chilled to the proper temperature with obliging ice bergs is my drink.
That's a good idea, Simmo. I need to break the spell of ...
MB Dark Twist in a straight Pride
my one-note samba for the week. This combo is extremely tasty. And the algorithm is simple: fill, smoke, empty, repeat. It seems to get even tastier the second, third, and fourth time around.
The Mac Baren rep mentioned they use the 25%-sugar Virginias in this one. I believe it. The cake is starting to form and it's like granite. And that caramelized sugar smell from the slow burn is addictive. Snork heaven.
The night continues, Mclelland's Boston 1776 in a Castello Slightly Bent Prince with ice tea.
