    Good choice. I wish they would tell people in the notes things like "Please don't clap between movements" and "It is traditional to stand for the Hallelujah Chorus."

    Still working on the Haddo's Delight in the Piersel - heading to bed when it is done...

    Still working, still drinking ice water, and as I also listen to radio shows, I'm smoking Anniversary Kake in a smooth 1979 Chippendale (Charatan second) Rhodesian 49.

    Whew! Finally caught up. Only took a week and a half. Enjoyed some Royal Yacht in a Dr. G and loved the food court Hallelujah Chorus video rekamepip posted. Lets see how long I stay caught up.

    John Sinclair's Highland Sliced in the BST.

    I'm slightly confused by the brand name for this tobacco. I assume it was not the same John Sinclair who got locked up for breathing air?

    Fired up the GBD Prodigy with some Drew Estates Toasted Black Cavendish. Chasing it all with Starbuck's Sumatra.

    My first bowl of MCB through a straight Ozark wasn't nearly as soft, smooth, and tasty as it was in a cob. A big part of the Ozark I think is getting a good char developed and that inner shank burnt away. Successive bowls get much better.

    That does indeed seem to be the case. I've noticed it getting dramatically better after just 3 smokes.
    I can see myself really enjoying these Ozarks. Very cool little pipes :puffy:

    That's my wife's favorite ... smells like baked apple crisp with a little apricot thrown in. I like it because it's Virginia forward and dry smoking. The aroma comes through in the flavor which is nice. Used to buy it in bulk bags but haven't seen them lately.

    Finishing up the Dav Scot, and moving on to some ... Stanwell Melange in an IMP Meerschaum.

    It is 18 deg F and pretty still. Really a nice night. Decided to shovel while smoking some PS LTF in my altinok talon churchwarden. And that was great.

    Now I'm smoking some sutliffe great outdoors in the bent maple poker that rekamepip sent me.

    Got a big day filled with driving tomorrow so i will catch you guys some time later tomorrow. Good night all.

    Ahhh, the Old Fashioned is my favorite cocktail. What whiskey do you prefer?

    Also, I use the same Zippo lighter and czech tool tamper, and I even use them on my very own Holymolar gifted pipe.

    You, sir, are clearly a gentlemen of the utmost refinement and excellence! :thu:
