Nightcap in a Falcon.
Good evening, gents.
Louisiana Flake in its very own Country Gent.
Earl Grey, Red Cake, DrG Grand Duke.
CH & cob
Now that's a nice looking cob!
It's over 85 degrees F at 10:42PM here in Westerville. It's balmy, I'd guess the rh is about the same as the temperature. Hot and sticky....
Good time for some latakia! Against my better judgment, I just couldn't keep my hands off the Nightcap. It's been a few years since I had it, and back then I couldn't smoke anything without wicked tongue bite. So it's Dunhill Nightcap in the Savinelli Trevi 114ks. Great stuff so far!
GLP Black Point in a Squatch
Now you sound like JP...
Thanks.. I only take this Buescher's sweet corn cob out in public along with a Montecristo now. My other cobs are for only when i'm fishing in the dark. Maybe someday that will change down the road..
If you like Virginia blends then there would be no doubt that you would like Dixie Pride. It has a good strong dark Virginia base and the rum used for casing is apparently top notch as far as flavor. RewRew likey!!!
Just finished a bowl of Dark Flake in the dedicated Sav dublin KS.
LBF in a MM Country Gent.....great smoke
Going up to watch the sun set with a nice mystery English given to me by the Old Codger. Don't know what it named but it is a very pleasant light English bulk blend.
Having some Irish Flake in my Northern Briars banker. Sitting on my friend's patio in the balmy humidity of a July night in Alabama, with my trusty golden retriever. This is a fitting smoke for the setting, really. Strong, natural tobacco. IF has been a favorite of mine for some time now.
Happy to say I'm currently smoking the last bowl of a miserable decision: buying four 1.75 oz. pouches of OTC Red Cap from the local RYO hut. Mind you, I blended that garbage with the crumbs from a few other tins and pouches of tobaccos I do like, and have made this horse hair rather tolerable.
Sad to say it's absolutely the only tobacco I have on hand at the moment, and after this bowl, I have nothing. Tomorrow I'm going to track down something worth smoking to tide me over until a new care package arrives .
Also, I should mention that as dismal as this bone dry, stem-filled Red Cap has been, the horror is lessened by being puffed from my battered, bruised MM Country Gent whilst watching these brilliant-yet-somewhat-awkward 1980s pipe tobacco ads on YouTube.
Nothing gets in the way of a Condor moment, after all.
I mixed some McB Golden Extra with some Dunhill EMP and loaded in a Squatch. I was very pleasantly surprised, not a bad smoke at all. I"m actually enjoying it very much. But I'm a little odd I guess.
Some McClelland Ashton Revival Oldchurch in a Stanwell DeLuxe... hopefully get a review of this tobacco up soon, almost finished the tin! Not a bad aro, if I do say so myself.
Thank you for asking this. It did and did not. I got those eight, two of them are in my fridge but they are zanders, not graylings. I got a wrong term from Internet dictionary. (More in Trout thread)
Breaking in my new MM Country Gent with Orlik Golden slice. This is my first flake, so far so good.
More Uhle's #00 in a Peterson System 303. I am becoming a bit of a burley fanatic, I think. I really need to place an order with Steven Books at House of Calabash. Can't afford much of it, but I can't wait to try that stuff.
I blame this burley/natural tobacco obsession, and my probably expensive HoC order, on FlatbushPaul. It's all his fault. The stuff is just so damn good, and so damn smokable. I just can't get enough of it lately.
