    I remember the old Troost slices. It was really a good smoke. Tried the recent in that free pouch deal and what I got was more rubbed out than anything and wasn't very good at all.

    Good Morning all. Sipping on some old Anni Kake in the cherrywood cob. Sipping on some Pg tips in a mug, too.

    Walkabout was iffy, I was a stumble bum the whole time, my balance is out of kilter, Levi somehow came up limping, not bad but noticeable so I may need to give him a baby aspirin later. After 2 days of horrible pipe smoking conditions yesterday broke and it was a good ending. Today, however, has been surreal, not one smoke has been a disappointment, the Tsuge Tankard fed itself well on walkabout with the much extolled Telegraph Hill thanks to the HATE mail from FlatbushPaul, now I'll have another tobacco to add to the bulging cellar. Having a double Cuban espresso whilst sipping on the freshly cleaned, reamed and scotch scrubbed original MM Diplomat with the Wellington Forever Stem with a charge of Naked Anni, mmm wonderful smoking. :th1:

    Ah, PG Tips. You, sir, are a man among men. Perhaps we could share some Ty-Phoo someday.

    If you go to your balcony late each evening and croon those tender lyrics in the style of Wunderlich, she will hear your cries and come running to calm your fevered heart. And 9 months later, the world will welcome its newest miracle, destined to become a pipe smoker of course. So do it for the cause, Simmo!

    Thanks for that clip!

    Fritz Wunderlich is a top favorite. One of my closest friends from the old days was a tenor in the Italian verismo style who introduced me to Wunderlich and gave me a copy of Durchs Land der Operette. The "Maske in Blau" on that album is the stunning masterpiece of music with voice IMHO. Next in line would have to be Giuseppe Di Stefano doing E lucevan le stelle.

    Those Troost Slices were fantastic. A whole different animal from the cavendish in pouches.

    The old Troost cavendish from the 70's was an amazing tobacco. It had this sort of caramelized sugar thing going on, but it wasn't really sweet or syrupy at all. Just delicious! Unfortunately that flavor was completely missing in the later versions. That why I've got great (but probably unrealistic) hopes for the Stokkebye Aromatic Dutch Slices. One warning though: these Slices aren't really slices at all ... it's just an ordinary cavendish cut.

    Still Melange in a Meerschaum ...

    Well my neighbors son, his wife and daughter are visiting from WA state and he brought me this freshly roasted coffee, Finca Las Florestales Maximino Guitierrez Colombian which I just ground and made a super cup to go with the Werner Mummert UFO pipe filled with Peter Stokkebye Curly Block aka the Salami with a light topping of Scotch Flake for some added spice, all I needed to make it pure heaven would be in the SL500 listening to Mario Lanza. :bow:

    That's what I was thinking it would be. Let us know what it turns out to be. I wouldn't mind a small taste of that myself.

    I chose the Troost Special Cavendish and after sitting 6 weeks from when it was opened it smoked nicely, fresh, not so much but it doesn't hold a candle to Troost Slices which I have 4 tins of and smoke very skimpily, it's simply wonderful stuff.

    Smoking some Peretti's London flake in the pete '52. Not bad, it's said to be McC's 2015, but not having tried 2015, I can't say. I didn't get the McC scent from it and very little taste of the perique. It has that fresh note that I like. Pleasent smoke so far. Just got a sample so need to smoke more bowls of it. More Pg tips added to the IV and snuck in a dip of Grizzly Wintergreen.
