    Forgot to mention that I'm half way through a bowl of Virginia Spice in a 2013 straight 5th Avenue DGE Nose warmer cob. I sure like this blend! Finishing up the last of this glass of ice tea. Ice water will be next.

    Just looked it up. Too expensive for me. Oh well, I'm having enough trouble sleeping without it. ;)

    Still smoking the Granger in a cob, but about to put it aside for something else.
    I'm going to have to add to my review thread later on. This tobacco is going to need a lot of drying. I can feel the steam starting a slight burn in my mouth...Very rarely does my iron mouth experience such things.

    Think I'm going to pack some Carter Hall and revisit the Granger pipe after a night's sleep.

    Since I was in my comfort zone, finishing up Black Lung in the blobby pipe, I let all YappyG's and Thuber's talk of latakia and sweet stuff convince me to cut loose and experiment. So I mixed up some Sweet Vanilla Honeydew (thanks, SurlySoul!) and it's great vanilla-candle vanilla with a bunch of blending latakia and stuff it in the BC Maitre Pipier calabash shape pipe. So far, the top of the bowl is smoking like it's a winner. Sometimes you get lucky.

    And the last Bic just died. Maybe I'll walk to the all night gas station downtown. Or maybe I'll just sit here and mug myself.

    I drove through a think fog an hour ago to get to 7-11 to pick up some lighters.
    Do you have any spare matches around?

    Ahhh, nothing like Carter Hall to sooth my tongue :puffy:
    Smoking it in my favorite MM cob: Missouri Pride natural finish. Coolest smoking of all my cobs. Plus I like the redneck look.

    Off to the 7-11 in the commons across from campus. Then for a walk. Campus is safe at night.

    Edit: BTW, that store requires you to show ID to buy a lighter. (You have to be 18 to purchase in the Hoosier State. But I've never been carded anywhere else.)

    Would that be Newminster Blackberry Brandy? Is it very aromatic or lightly aromatic?
    Definitely sounds tasty.

    Puffing up some clouds of Carter Hall. Up next shall be some SWRA.
