Smells so good it made my wife interrupt what she was doing to go get a cookie or three. I tried getting Stokkebye to release a bulk version, but no go. That touch of Oriental raises this one above the average aromatic IMHO. I don't pick out the distinctive oriental note, but it contributes to making the flavor somewhat richer than normal.
OMG I was outside relaxing with my 312 and some Amphora and a skunk walked right up to me. I had a stare down for 2 minutes with the skunk. I was sitting and it was in front of me. I decided to get up and lucky for me she didn't turn to spray me lol man my legs are still shaking hehe.
What a way to ruin a good smoke.
Well at least you'll enjoy the fruit leaf of your labor. I bet you can only imagine how much effort goes into the high yield growers work and after watching you deal with the leaf miners one could only imagine how they would devastate a crop and you pretty much had a much more controlled world for which yours grew in, congratulations on a job well done and documented!

Congrats to YAPPG on 2K,
Time to hand over the shift, great party might sneak down for a pipe before I hit the sheets but I'm pretty tired see you in 3 or so...........
Got home late from dinner, shopping, etc. so only time for a small bowl of Peterson's Irish Oak in my Imp meer.
I guess I'm on an aromatic kick. It's a nice change of pace! Cornell & Diehl - Mocha in the BST. I'm finding this pipe is great for aromatics, it tends to smoke slow and cool as it is, which of course is always ideal, but for aromatics it's really especially important for them to not bite and taste like crud
This blend isn't magic, but in the BST it's a far better blend than I remember it being!
Got started late today. Started at five PM on the roof with Billy Budd and the usual freshly ground double roast coffee. Billy Budd is good at keeping people at bay until I'm ready to talk to humans. I'm not a great lover of humanity before that first smoke and coffee. I blame it on them. People too dumb to speak in a calm slow manner before I'm ready to deal with them.
Almost done with Dunhill Elizabethan Match in a three quarter bend smooth 1985 Dunhill Chestnut 5202 with a cumberland stem. Braves beat the Cards, and Vin and the Dodgers are on the XM now. And I'm deciding what to smoke next.
Stuck at work until 11:30 - got some Ashton Smooth Sailing in one of my no-name bulldogs and a couple fingers of El Dorado Demarara rum, a squirt of lime and some ice cubes lined up for my return home! Happy weekend everyone!
Busy day at work. Got home ready to cut the grass and noticed one of the brackets on the mower deck on my JD broken. Had to cut the grass the old fashion way. I'm getting too old for this . Dog ass tired but not too tired to enjoy a bowl of 1980 Dark Twist in my favorite pipe, a London Made Squat Tomato. I recently bought 6 tins of Dark Twist to get some age on it. Mighty fine stuff. Y'all have a fine fine weekend! Congrats YAPPG on that 2k!
Finally, the weekend and the 2 year old is asleep.
FVF in a Svendborg bent Dublin.
Kicken Chicken in a cob, thanks T.Harris. Had to add some moisture to it cause it was rock hard, but smokes like normal, now. May have 2-3 bowls left and am gonna stretch them out to help wait till its released. Dang, I love this stuff.
