    I'm smoking some LBF in the Old Grand Dad's Bonded 100-proof with some black rock cob to drink.

    Enjoying Navy flake right now on my back deck. Smoking it in a Stanwell squat tomato. Lovely night in the great Northwest!

    I saw a photo of some old EGR in cardboard boxes(Jiminks), so I was thinking that during WWII, and the metal shortages, I bet Prince Albert had a chance to catch his breath, since they probably did not use the cans during that time, although you have to put some work into breathing through cardboard:rolleyes:

    If you like these you might want to try the Campion series staring Peter Davidson. I do not recommend the Whimsey's staring Edward Petherbridge - he struck me as a bit dour in his portrayal.

    It's a terrific tobacco. I've smoked a number of tins of it over the years. I'm aging two tins now, both are 10 years old. It ages wonderfully, and worth buying.

    Just finished some Samuel Gawith SJF in a Dunhill bruyere billiard. All that talk regarding the new Three Nuns got me salivating for a nice VaPer!!

    Smoked some creamy Escudo in my new Pete Dracula pipe. I'm going to enjoy smoking this one. Bowl got alittle warm but no gurgle. Once it's broke in it's going to be a fine smoker.

    Still working, and am now smoking Full Virginia Flake in a slight bend 1968 group 4S Dunhill Shell 475 cherrywood. Ice water chilled to the proper temperature is my drink.

    I smoked a little of the Three Nuns current version and was reminded how disappointed I was with it. I put it down an lit up a bowl of Chief Catoonah's Bailey's Supreme in a Dunhill Group 6 Ring Grain Billiard with some ice water. Man, I love this blend! Absolutely Great!

    Smoking some more 5 Brothers in a MM cob :puffy:
    I really like this stuff and I think it would make the perfect blender for anything. But I must say, I'm really enjoying it on its own. :puffy:
    Pronounced nutty flavor, and I didn't find it at all harsh. The nic buzz was nice as well :) but not too intense.

    Carter Hall in a cob up next :puffy:

    I'm back from my involuntary hiatus. Had a stubborn ear infection and doc said smoking wouldn't help it go away.
    Welcomed myself back with some Dunhill MM965 in a Neerup apple.
    Cheers!
