Bishop's Move in a bent Washington
Currently smoking a mix of left overs in the poor man's pipe
Since the ABF/CH primer worked so well, did it again. Proof for the Wicker Man...crappy cell camera warning
Lunch...fried Smith's ring balogna with mustard on hot dog buns, black bean soup, herbal ice tea:
Check in on the kids:
Sinbad the barn cat..."NO PICTURES!"
NW Pennsylvania winter smoking lounge...
Great pipe, hasn't killed me yet...
and for the ride to work
ok, ok...I've been reading this again and again and you convinced me:
The Revor was getting a bit too rich for me. Fancied something a little more mellow so back to what is fast becoming the blend of the moment - Burley London Blend in a GW Sims straight Bulldog.
Smoking some Uhle's 00, watching the cat bathe the dog.
The first 10 bowls I smoked were consecutive bowls, I think. After that, it became a special occasion smoke. It does tend to get a little cloying, doesn't it?
Louisiana Flake in a Tinsky poker.
Nice hat. What's up with the snivel gear underneath it?
Mac B dark twist in a Savinelli.
Filson. Fleece neck warmer. I'm getting old and soft.
Cloying is the word. The pipe I was smoking it in is relatively large. I got just over halfway down and I had the same feeling I get when I'm eating a third bowl of Christmas pudding, even though I was more than full after the main course!
so far today has consisted of a couple of bowls of CH in a cob, some AJ's Vaper in my Pete 305 system pipe.
Now its time for some Classic Burley Kake in a CG churchwarden.
Finally got some sleep! Earlier, I smoked Burley Flake #3 (thanks FlatbushPaul) in a 1990 Peterson Irish Second Oom Paul natural. Now, it's Dark Birdseye in an old Barling straight Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. billiard with a silver band and military bit. And I'm trying to decide on my smoke line up for the evening since I have the day off.
Royal Yacht in a Dunhill group 4 Dublin.
My 1st impression is this is a solid-bodied English, and I "like" it, but will need more time with it.
Thanks dwaugh for the sample(s). And thanks for not sending me the stuff that's been beaten by the jack sledge.
PS: strong s**t too.
English? I thought English generally referred to blends with orientals or Latakia in them; Royal Yacht is like a cased Virginia. It is strong, but I love it when I'm in the mood for it.
Smoking 2006 Telegraph Hill in a Northern Briars. I am really starting to love this blend. Just bursting at the seams with flavor. I'm not really a huge fan of Pease a lot of the time, but he nailed this one. Tip of the hat to FlatbushPaul for turning me on to this one. Got lucky and found two aged tins of it at the B&M. Nice to have the aging already done for you.
Says the guy with 20 friggin' coats in his office.
A 50/50 mix of PA and 5100 (Red Albert?) in a "Barasso" (thats what the stamp says...really) quarter bent bulldog.
Stimulus package in a Sav bent billiard
Those terms "English" etc. can be general in nature & most English blends have Virginia in them last time I checked. It (RY) had an English taste for me as a 1st impression.
Hey, those were for the boys. I got another 35 last Wednesday, pure chaos, trying to give those things out by size ordered. As I think think about it, I'm sure I'm a victim........
