    More Barbary Coast in my Tsuge. Hoping with much hope for the Mr. Brog to show up tomorrow--it's only gotta come across the east river from BK, after all.

    Wilke 622 in a Comoy. I want the record to reflect that I'm smoking it because jpburg said I should, and I do what he says.

    Just on my third bowl of Essence of Vermont in the Legend today. To say I enjoy this combo would be a fairly accurate statement. My only downside is that the sample is all gone!

    I love 622... amazing flavor... for me, like a dark toffee butterscotch. deep and smokey taste! excellent balance between the sweet/dark virginias, the smoky latakia, and the peppery perique. don't even have to snork this one to taste the goodness! quite moist and springy straight from the pouch, it takes a light well and smokes down to ash :D

    Esoterica Douchester in my bent Aristocob MM Diplomat. Thank you Aristocob for the great pipe recommendation and Spillproof for spoiling me with great tobacco. Watching the storm build on a great night. Lightning rolling in from right off the driveway.

    I swear, me and briars. This whole notion of smoking anything down to the bottom of the bowl with no dottle baffles me. Grr. On the other hand, I remain stubbornly determined.

    exactly, i rarely can smoke down to the bottom. I always have a bit of tobacco left with some moisture. But hey that's better than burning out your pipe

    Thanks. I'm working on breaking it in and hoping I can get my technique to a point where it doesn't gurgle :(

    you and me both, I despise the retched gurgle. My peterson kapet gurgles more than half the time and i have to smoke much slower than I am used to so that i could reduce the gurgle,and that takes away from me enjoying my flavors :mad:

    Yeah. I think I need to slow down and I've also read that there's a longer break-in on some pipes, which also can contribute to the gurgles. This tobacco tonight was certainly dry (brittle, even), so I suspect my technique is probably the culprit, combined with the relative newness of the pipe. I love the look, the feel in the hand and in the clench, but the gurgles are frustrating.

    i love the rusticated feel of my peterson kapet, just use a good measure of patience and over time you will be awarded with a cool, sweet tasting and nearly gurgle free briar pipe. I am starting to learn this because I am still in the middle of breaking in my peterson, and its starting to show its true colors
