    A fragrant bowl of Mixture Scottish Blend (shock, horror!) in a Cavicchi Bent Dublin ...

    [​IMG]

    For what it's worth, this very combination gave me the best smoke of my life. Years ago I had 2+ hours of tedious landscaping ahead of me, and I thought: well, at least I can smoke! But, being slightly irritated and impatient I just grabbed a clump of Mixture and screwed it into the top of my Cavicchi, taking all of 2 seconds to accomplish the task. And I also lit it with equal neglect.

    About 5 minutes later I noticed it was smoldering away on its own and emitting the most delicious side-stream smoke I had ever smelled. And the flavor, mixed with the fresh air of the Sonoran Desert, was mouth watering. I've tried re-creating the experience later to no avail. Sometimes things just work out that way.

    Those are incredible blasts. Congratulations.

    I purchased an inexpensive Barber years ago that was the equal of a Ferndown at less than 1/3 of the price. That's why it definitely pays to keep your eyes open in the pipe world. Tremendous values out there.

    Thanks!

    Nothing like a major test to interrupt celebration. After a serious nap, I'll be hitting the trails on the bike, then Irresponsible drinking and actions will occur around 3pm ...with a cigar.

    That pipe looks far nicer than the $45.00 price tag they have on it. Must check this out

    It's certainly riveting thus far! I've started the complete Sherlock Holmes collection on my Kindle, and I'm so glad I did. I needed a break from my journey through Stephen King's catalog. And a refreshing break it is.

    There are 3 places I've discovered in the city that allow smoking, but this one (McGlinchy's) is the perfect combination of cheaper craft beer, unpretentious clientele, and dark ambivalent charm. The staff is rude, the music is typically rock and heavy metal, and I've not once been bothered about sitting and smoking my pipe/reading.

    On topic, had a bowl of Orlik Golden Sliced in a cob on the ride to work. Lovely.

    Well the first smoke in it was excellent. It is lighter than it looks as well. No idea what the slight fault is because I can't find any. I would have been happy with this one paying 3x the price. Looks, how it feels in the hand - superb.

    A cold but bright morning at Wicker Villas, been waiting for the postman before first smoke of the day :(
    :banana:he landed sign here [​IMG] [​IMG] and it was worth the wait, from Greens of Leeds
    http://www.smoke-king.co.uk/acatalo...Mixture-Pipe-Tobacco-50g-Tin-732.html#SID=157
    As always landed next day and again with a free chocolate, guess who snaffeled that ?
    Opened the tin and Wow it smells like Tabacco, that's not ment to be funny it's all so subjective, or at least what I think Tobacco should smell like.

    wasted no time in filling the Altinok for March Meer. Madness Day 28 (where's the month gone :cfsd:)

    the Altinok barely got warm and the smoke was that good I've refilled it :bing:
    perhaps there's some better worded reviews here

    Last night's encounter with Red Cake was remarkable. I rubbed out some #2010 to be ready for this morning. So the commute was with Mc. C #2010, briar and coffee. 33F and no wind. May be a great pipe day!

    Morning all, I have a brand new pouch of SWRA and a falcon with two bowls I'm leaving to drive down to Dumfries in about half an hour so I'll put that combination to work on the drive.

    That last bowl of Blakeneys Best lasted me about two hours. Now I'm smoking some of Tinder Box's Chocolate Treat in the meer-lined Grabow billiard . Killing time before I head back to the warehouse.

    You know what hits the spot? Edgeworth Ready Rubbed (Original) in a Doug Erwin nose warmer. Thanks to my favorite biologist.
