But how has it aged? Are they all sealed?
Wow nice finds!!
Just had time for a quick pipe of Dorchester in the Rossi. Now I'm packing up the car to drive the family to Erie. My dad holds a fancy holiday-time dinner every year and we're heading up for that. Then it'll be back to Pittsburgh tomorrow and back to Erie on Christmas morning only to drive back to Pittsburgh Christmas night. Whew!
Still sipping the Black Shag while reading various reviews on TR (and typing here of course).
Drive Safely and have a Blessed Christmas.
Let us know what you think of the TB Philosopher. That's my favorite TB blend. I have pound that I cellared in 05 and still haven't touched.
The important ones (Balkan Sobranie, MacB) are sealed!
Harry, that was one terrific find! Apparently, someone was cleaning out a grand dad's cellar and had no idea what they had found.
56F and rain. Calling for a high of 23F by Monday. What in the wide world of sports is going on with the weather? Stormy, your contracted help needs better instruction.
I am blessed with a ridiculous assortment of tobacco to choose from. Day like today fairly shouts for latakia, so Raven's Wing (112102) in the Pete...
I believe he contracted the same team as Obamacare for the weather....
So Berg is still passing off that dessicated and musty old Lane's Crow's Foot as RavensWing huh?
Charring Cross in a 2013 Dunhill County billiard.
Congrats on an impressive haul, may it all smoke long and tasty for you.
Basking in another treatment of the Strang courtesy of Dr Stranglove himself. Many thanks Simon.
The Schippers tobacco is a good blend. Shag cut, spicy with a hint of chocolate and cigar. You can only get it in Europe now, darn it. The BS 759 is worth quite a bit of money, as is the other BS. Lucky, lucky, man!
Po' po' pitiful me is suffering through this bowl of MacBaren Virginia #1 in a late '90s half smooth/half etched freehand sitter, medium bend Nielsen Viggo. Harry has put us all to shame. Start smoking, pal! You have lots of treats in store for you!
Look at what I got in! Straight from Boswell's (except for the jar and chalk label, of course).
I'm drying some out now so I can try my first bowl after lunch.
Keeping my fingers crossed that dBear doesn't have to work again until Thursday while I'm still trying to wake up, after partying hard last night.
Taking the advice from a World Champion that lat blends are great for fighting hangovers, I'm just about to light up a pipe full of HU English Breakfast - a lat sample I got with my latest HU order.
Second bucket of coffee is brewing, the contents of the first bucket got lost somewhere in my body without any significant effect. Happy saturday puffing all!
It's not how long it is, it's what you do with it.
(Just a quick reminder: Tonight is official Strang Night!)
Congrats! Indeed, looks like the haul of the year!
Alas..... I have no Strang....but will try to pull out my best Lat thang.
Taking a break from what is rapidly tturning into a very frustrating morning to enjoy a cup of Irish breakfast tea accompanied with MacB BLB in the cob.
