    This Savinelli unfinished Dublin is my first "big name" briar, and I gotta say it's such a lightweight, great smoker! I've almost finished the first half bowl of well aged Pirate Kake, and it's very smooth, mellow, and certainly full of Latakia flavor. So smokey, the tin note reminds me of an olfactory sense of heavily smoked aged cheeses and or meats.

    Just finished my second bowl of FMOTT in a half bent bulldog. Think I'm coming down with something so maybe I'll take a day or two off smoking, which is irritating as an order of tobacco from 4 Noggins just showed up in my mailbox....

    You're totally right if I was going to age it for a very long time. This is only one oz. Left, and its still too damp, so I'm opening occasionally to allow it to slowly dry out. Not really aging it.

    NO, you get a hodge podge of flavoring dependent on how the mix ratio that ends up in your pipe is in subsequent packing of the same pipe, change pipes and everything changes once again.

    The 30 year old realizes the ramifications of mixing with too young of a crowd, and hides itself in the shadows until it can escape in a cloud of smoke;)

    You are most welcome, this is why I did the Morta Anni Kake Challenge with 6 y/o Anni Kake coming from the same jar and stored in the same pouch, it would have been useless to do otherwise and if you read the palate and snork notes from each of the pipes they differed quite a bit.

    I was thinking more of a predator list for the 30 year old, not so many cougars in the smaller towns, at least none you would want to me in the dark, let alone with the lights on:rolleyes:
