    Minutes away from a cup of hot tea and a bowl of Edgeworth Slices (thanks Highstump) in a 1984 medium bend black grain etched Savinelli Non Pareil 9310 poker.

    Irish Flake cradling Old Dublin cradling University Flake cradling Hyde Park in a xxl IMP meerschaum. This pipe has lasted all the way through Kill Bill II and there's still Old Dublin coming through, so I've got a least enough left to watch DWaugh's latest before calling it a night. -5C(23F)H64%

    Thanks to FlatbushPaul, I'm smoking Steven Books Irishman's 5 O'Clock in a 1949 medium bend Dunhill Shell. The description at TR says this is much like the old Balkan Sobranie 759. At this moment, I have to agree with that assessment.

    Thanks again to FlatbushPaul for the sample of vintage 1978 MacBaren Symphony in a smooth three quarter bend 1979 made in Israel pipe. I've recently been smoking the current production of this and the taste of the new one is so tame in comparison. I'd almost swear it wasn't the same tobacco. This is deeper and spicier in taste and absolutely wonderful!

    It is thanks to Paul that I've gotten to try a whole bunch of great aged tobacco. 1999 FVF, 2000 McClelland Navy Cavendish, some McClelland #24 from the mid 70's, and a couple others. The #24 was a major eye opener for me. The depth of those flavors was like nothing I'd ever experienced.

    Speaking of aged tobacco, I'm smoking some HoC For Meerschaum's Only Reserve in a Savinelli. A masterpiece blend, absolutely. Need to buy some more soon, but the stuff is so pricey it's hard to fit it into the budget. I probably smoke it a couple times a month, and it never ceases to amaze me. The aged tobacco is so well blended, it all just melds together. Books is the tobacco equivalent of a master chef.
