Once you go filterless...
You're right! It was an interesting discovery... El Guero and I were sitting drinking coffee and smoking, and I was explaining to him how I smoke my Vauen with a filter and everything else without. As soon as I got home, I pulled the ol' pot apart to clean it and realized my ironic mistake - I had forgotten to put in the filter. The fact that it seemingly "smoked better" that day sealed the deal... I guess I am forced onto the filterless bandwagon! If they'll take me!

Kendal Dark in the Legend for the first of the day, Altadi's Edgeworth match in the BST after work, Kendal Dark in the Country Gentleman before my meeting, CAO Criollo after, and now I'm about to step out for another round of Kendal Dark before bed...Country Gentleman again!
I'm going to slip out on my deck while everyones snuggled in their beds and have a bowl of McClelland 2020 in a Courtley Supreme Lovat.

Beautiful, freaky shade of blue sky here this morning. Crisp, clear 44F air, and a beautiful sliver of moon. What a way to start a Friday.

This morning the Captain met the Diplomat for coffee.
Wilderness, in a large blasted billiard, for the TGIF smoke.
Hey Jon, I cracked open the tin of Ten Russians and found it was in plug form. I didn't know that. I didn't have time to play with it this morning so I will look to try it over the weekend. Does it crumble or do ya have to slice it and rub it out?

Essence of Vermont in a Peterson Canadian 264. Black coffee smells good. +2C(35F) and the snow is just melting as it hits the ground.

4noggins Essence of Vermont in a Legend. Coffee on the side.
What's it like in the Legend? Now that I have this tobacco in the condition that I like, I find that it does change quite a bit from pipe to pipe.
It's a pretty dry blend, and crumbles nicely, it doesn't fall apart like Smoker's Haven Krumble Kake, but it's easy enough. Once you get familiar with it rubbed out, rip a hunk off and just jam it in your pipe ( put a lttle dust on top to get it going) - completely different smoking experience.
I hope you like it as much as I do!
Paul, as of yesterday, Pipestud had a tin red label TR for a reasonable price, you should buy it.
Smoking my first bowl of SL in my Winslow Volcano.
Wow this is good stuff. Now I know what all the hype was about.
