    Smoked three bowls of Robert McConnell Original Oriental, this afternoon. First in the Apple briar then in a Falcon and last was the cherrywood cob. All pipes smoked very good with it but I liked the cob best. This is very much a slow sipping tobacco. If you smoke most orientals like this one, too fast, it will turn bitter. There was a lot of flavors going on within all three pipes and they were all good. They are subtle flavors but you can tell when they change from one to the next if you go slow. It is an enjoyable experience and well worth the ride. Mid level nic was nice, as well. Lemonade is my drink of choice to help clean out the mouth as I puff along thru the night.

    Just didn't get enough vitamin N this morning, time for Billy the Budd in a cob. Ice cold root beer just to confuse the taste buds.

    Not much of a day today including not much in the way of piping, did try some AAA Burley in the MM Diplomat with blue and white Forever Stem, meh... will try the other different bags of Burley and decide how I'll mix them. The other smoke was Pipes&Cigars Chocolate in the Charlie Brown Cob it has more of a cocoa taste than chocolate but it was nice.

    No, but it is a treasure in itself. I had forgotten this that you had smoked it.

    Well, the Mountain Camp was good, but I've thrown caution to the wind and have fired up a bowl of straight 100% Lat (thanks, dBear) in a small bent no-name meer. Kinda odd, I seem to be getting less Lat than from Pirate Kake--how is that possible? I was kinda expecting to be overwhelmed and it's actually fairly mild.

    While I'm waiting for dinner, I'm smoking Onyx in a 1949 medium bend Dunhill Shell. A bottle of Pepsi made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Braves lead the Nats 1-0 in the 2nd.
