P&W #10 in a shabby-chic kit-pipe by some unknown weirdo.
Toscano del Presidente
St Bruno in a falcon, can it get better??
Oh, gosh, what all did I have last night...
6 o'clock news in my little BC Churchwarden
Dark Navy Flake in my Pete 107
Sutliff Academy in my Dunhill 4102
Newminster Blackberry Brandy in my no-name Prince
Amphora Red in a clay.
I'm enjoying a nice afternoon smoke of McClelland #27 in a DrG Billiard.
This afternoon, thought I'd give a visual this time; PSLNF/69'Dunhill 142/Grolsch Lager.
Penzance in a bent Falcon International with meer-lined Snifter bowl...
Same as last night:
Continuing to sample from Paul's treasure chest - Some 1979 McClelland Oriental #1, in a beautiful cross grained and bird's eyed Ser Jacopo La Fuma. If he had not labeled it, I never would have guessed it. I don't normally smoke this blend, as it presents rather timidly when fresh. At the ripe old age of 33 however, it's an entirely different creature. With the new, you get, if you search hard enough, and if the planets are aligned, a nice little oriental/virginia/latakia interplay, light on the latakia. This stuff has been reduced and melded into a completely unique flavor that I have never tasted. It's as if the virginias and latakia had been reduced sub atomically, and put back together in some freaky hybrid, with just a whiff of cool basma layered across the top. Completely unique, and wonderful, and a rare treat. Thanks again, Flatbush, you da man.
Started the day with SWR in a Gent and coffee chaser. Mid-morning a Diplomat filled with the "Bastard" (thanks again Johnny. This stuff really grows on me. Liking it better each smoke). Afternoon has been more SWR in the Gent. Getting ready to fire up the grill and cook some pork steaks. Thinking about some Pipers Pleasure or Bear Blend in a Sav, oh, why not, more SWR in the Gent with a cold Presidente beer chaser. Florida State lost last night. University of Florida plays tonight. 9 p.m. game (EST) well, maybe I will get to that Bear Blend afterall.

Bulleseye Flake in my trusty Borkum Riff-branded Shalom billiard.

You know , You smoke alot of blends that I like , and thats cool . Then you show up w/ this picture of a total rockin Meer and Celtic Talisman , which I adore , and suddenly I like you a little less [ .. lol ]
Exhausted Rooster in an estate Brebbia Gala Argento bent spiggot. Great blend in a great little pipe.
Evidently we have similarly awesome taste!
Yes we do ..... but you got a killer Meer and are able to get blends that I drool over .. ya basstid [ lol ]
Mostly cigars today...Avanti with my espresso this morning, Parodi King this afternoon....then I had a bowl of Sweet Coconut Twist in the MM Legend, and that was awesome. Just finished a LFD Double Ligero Maduro robusto though...in for dish washing then back out for a De Nobili Long or another Parodi or a bowl of something. Hard to make up my mind.
Ebay has its uses sometimes, and at least there's one upside to living in cold, wet England
