    But how has it aged? Are they all sealed?

    Great find!

    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). :puffy:

    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.

    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...

    So Berg is still passing off that dessicated and musty old Lane's Crow's Foot as RavensWing huh?

    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!

    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!:hbang:)

    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.
