    Good Morning,

    Just completed some troubleshooting on a remote controlled tarantula, all systems are now go on this piece of Chinese crap.

    Drinking seltzer, and illy from the moka pot, and enjoying a bowl of Dark Flake Aromatic/Rum Twist in the dirty Castello.

    This Dunhill 3YM
    has such a plum
    note to it! I haven't
    had Germain's Plum
    Cake, but I'm sure it'd
    smell like this.

    Anyone have a clue as
    to the vintage of the tin?
    No date stamp, but the
    sticker on the underside
    Is from Lane. I'm assuming
    this dropped off the map
    The same time as Elizabethan.

    Oh wow that looks awesome! I need to get myself some pipe books. I wasn't even aware there were any :)
    It would be lots of fun reading it while smoking a pipe :puffy:

    Still smoking Old Colonial in the MM Pride.

    Good morning all. 31-degrees here in Delaware. Accu-Weather says snow is coming through. But not to worry, just a dusting. Hate when they say that. That means BLIZZARD!

    Morning reading for St. Stephen's Day finished. Morning Russian tea drank. And EMP smoked. A good start to the day!

    Hi all,
    the feasting goes on. Today, on the second and last day of Christmas my grandma and my brother will come for a visit, for two hours already I've been preparing goose, red cabbage, red wine sauce and a mousse au chocolat. There's time for a short smoking break now, before I have to prepare the dumplings - Motzek Advent in a banded and forever stemmed MM 5th Avenue Diplomat.
    Feast on! and merry Christmas.

    I have two tins of this myself that I have not yet opened. I was anxiously awaiting your analysis. I will look on the back of mine later to compare what stamping mine has on it. Here is a picture of the front sides of the tins I have.

    Been out burning some brush piles. Think I will relax until bed time.

    Now about to fire up some PS Highland Whisky in an unknown German brand, 15" Dublin Churchwarden rusticated "imported briar" pipe :puffy:
    This blend and this pipe seem to be made for each other :)

    Back from ivIG and in my Benadryl Cloud as per usual. Decided to have some Haddo's Delight in the Peterson Pot with Silver appointments, a PRM of Costa Rican Tarazzu on the side.

    [​IMG]

    A package showed up and it was the Trevor Talbert Morta Don with elegant Silver Cap so I loaded it with some aged Stonehaven and had a delightful first smoke and with the sub group 1 bowl it will be my taste testing Morta and for strong tobacco where a whole bowl might give one the heebee jeebee's! :D

    Half way through the bowl, I dumped Motzek Advent. The blend is nice, but I need a more satisfying smoke right now - so I packed the Castello Collection with HU Flanagan - with great thanks to dBear and his hatred. :toast:
