That's like in NJ we drive on the Parkway, and park our cars in our driveways.
Lancer Slices in the Rewcob.
Blackwoods Flake in a Wally Frank billiard. I try to like it, but I just keep getting that barbecue sauce aftertaste. Is that what everyone loves about this stuff?
C&D Mississippi Mud in a GBD Bulldog
McCl Wilderness in a Jeantet Lumberman
Erinmore flake in a Peterson. I just can't get into this blend.
Edward's Reserve in the Digby Bulldog. I really like this pipe!
Evening Rise in a Dr.G Grand Duke. Gonna see if it true what the say about this blend...
Wish me luck!!! See ya after the smoke..
Didn't do anything for me when fresh packed. So as usual with any tobacco that doesn't do much for me at first, I put it in a jar and then revisited it a couple of months later. Half the jar volume is air, and a bit of time seems to bring out something in a number of tobaccos I've done this with. It's actually quite pleasant as an evening smoke.
Irish Flake in a Peterson Silver Spigot 03. Crushed ice with a splash of B&B. 26C(78F)H79%.
Granger in my MM Missouri Pride.
My Briar's keep calling to me, but I always reach for my trusty cob's. Ah well. Such is the way of things.
Dunhill Early Morning Pipe in a Pete 317.
I'm starting the day with Edgeworth Ready Rubbed in a Cellini Slightly Bent Billiard with black coffee.
Piccadilly in a Squatch.
Good Morning, .. Irish Oak in the Peterson Shamrock..
Not my usual this morning since the dog days have hit north Florida pretty hard; SWR in a Jobey Stromboli straight bull dog, strong black coffee on the side.
I have a Pete 317 and it's a nice looking pipe and smokes just fine but it is so small. It feels like a toy in my hand.
I'm surprised at you saying that you're getting it as an aftertaste. Usually most will get that aroma before hand. Once burning you should really just be getting a good tobacco taste. I really love all Va's from McClelland and have come to actually like that ketchupy/BBQ Sauce smell straight from the tin. But I don't really detect it once smoking it. Try letting it air out and or dry out a little before filling your pipe. See if that helps. That is one very fine blend that will no doubt become one of your favorites if you're into Va's.
Lol, In this steamy weather they are like the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz. Two of them can lift you up by your sleeves and fly away with you!
I'm new to Blackwoods, so I thought maybe that's normal. I do get a lingering smoky vinegar taste even after two hours drying on a plate and one hour in the pipe. Maybe I'll try nuking it like some others do.
