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
Its an oom paul. My whole pinkie fits into the bowl.
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.
Ending off the day with SG Chocolate Flake in my Peterson Aran 80s
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
beautiful pipe jd
Agreed. I have a soft spot for bent bulldogs/Rhodesians...
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
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
