Uhle's old shoe in my Daneska. Courtesy of dwaugh!
Habana Daydream in the Sav 510 bulldog.
Trying McClelland's bulk 5100 in my new storeint meerschaum. Both are smoking quite nicely.
Some of the best snorking is with this blend!
Scottish Cake in a basket
MacBaren Club Blend in a Peterson Rosslare 80s. Was just out for a walk in the snow, same tobacco in a DGE cob with a windcap. The DGE is a really nice pipe for clenching when I want to keep my hands in my pockets. -10C(14F)H92%
Astley's no. 44 in my spillproof.
Whiskey Biscuit Gravy in the meer... Still.
Evening All. MacBaren's Navy Flake in the new BST bent apple - the love affair continues
A whacky blend I threw together. 1 part BCA, 1 part Robert McConnell Pure Caribe, 2 parts McClelland 5100 red cake. Super tasty - lotsa body. Oh yeah - in a stanwell bent acorn.
Half&Half in a Davehill.
Newminster Superior Navy Flake in MM Country Gent. Big thumbs up for this beautiful tobacco. Definitely going to be my go-to flake, at this price.
I'm about to head out and try this Mac Baren HH Vintage Syrian. Reviews are sort of a love-hate thing, so I guess I'll find out on my own. The tin says Nov 2011 on the bottom. The Mastro de Paja is the vessel.
C&D Odessa in my new meer ... this is my first brand new meer and I am wondering how long it will take to start to color. Umpteen smokes? Eleventy?
'bout that... but it will be fun doing it.
Had to run to town on an errand. Dark Flake scented in a Wally Frank billiard kept me company.
Just for Him's Blue Balls in a small unmarked metal rimmed Gourd Calabash, the flavor is good but it seems to have the same mouth burning properties that so many aros have...
Yes it is. That Turkish tobacco he uses is magic, I tell ya, magic.
I'm inspired by Paul, and I am going to have some Steven Books/HoC "For Meerschaums Only - Reserve" in a Savinelli. Another magic blend. The flavor just deepens and deepens as you smoke it. I can't afford to keep large quantities of Mr. Books's tobacco on hand due to his very high pricing, but it is an excellent occasional treat. Kind of like a good cigar in that way: too expensive to smoke regularly, but incredible when you get around to it.
