Personal Reserve: Dark Star
I absolutely LOVE Wodehouse. I used to have a pet frog named Pelham in his honor. (The frog wasn't as funny as P.G.)
Out for delivery? The office must have been closed at the building.
Ahh, Personal Reserve, thanks! The descriptions sound very tasty. Will place that on my list of prospects.
It is one of their blends under the Personal Reserve series along with Blackwoods Flake and St. James Woods, here's a link: http://pipeshowonline.net/McClelland_PR.php
Escudo in a king size Savinelli Duca Carlo billiard. Perfect smoke on a misty morning with a cup of Earl Grey.
Try all three!
Knocked out a bowl of Three Cherry in my dad's La Rocca. Good stuff.
Well Director's Cut ended just as Juice was finishing belting out This Old Flame went out! No dottle, nothing but ash and a long smoke at that, did I mention I HATE this tobacco and PipeSimmo?
Love chocolate flavored tobacco. Tried MB, now want to give Bob's a try. NC and CC are both good and part of y normal rotation (although NC has to be out during the summer at the wife's request) and I enjoy both. 1792? Not sure my blood pressure would approve!
I'm almost through smoking a bowl of Shortcut to Mushrooms (thanks FlatbushPaul) in a straight 1979 MM Legend. A nice smoke to wake up to.
All three look good. I wonder why 5100 isn't on their website? Its probably their best seller in bulk isn't it? I've only had the 5100 for a couple days and it was love at first pipe
Here's a link to McClelland bulk blends: http://pipesmokersforum.com/community/threads/mcclelland-bulk-blend-descriptions-informational.7942/
I got home from a meeting last night, and with all the good choices I have at hand, I went with CH, in a MM CG, I keep finding it really hard to beat this combo for a good honest smoke. I may give it another go tonight, who knows......
Awesome, many thanks Cobbsmoker!
Btw, I may be hitting you up for some advice on Virginias, particularly McClelland's, on another thread. Something about Red Cake has really re-kindled my liking of Virginias, and I have a feeling McClelland will become one of my go-to brands in general.
Yay I topped 100 posts
Still enjoying my pipeful of 5100. A nice long smoke.
SWR is next in the lineup, probably in a MM Legend. So my order for the day is CH- 5100- SWR, and then repeated several times
Will be glad to help... PM anytime with questions...
Took the morning off to waiting for the plummer gave me a rare opportunity to enjoy a rare weekday morning bowl. I fired up some SG FireDance in my London Made Squat Tomato. Second bowl of this stuff and I am liking it. I tasted sweet yellow mustard this time, something I didn't detect last night. It's a good thing. Got me hungry for a hotdog. Congrats YAPPG on that 1000 post!
Back from PA. Started the morning with the Dr Grabow Omega filled with Peterson Irish Oak. It clenched surprisingly well through a brisk walk.
Then warmed down on the patio with a bowl of Lane Q1 in the Hialeah. Beautiful weather today in Charlotte, NC.
