    Apfelwein here as well! :buds:
    Just realized that I've neglected the Clalabash for some time. This just isn't on! So, for my next smoke I decided on some Bayou Morning Flake in the bash - THANKS Mr. Fish! :toast:

    a pipe cleaner soaked in Grant's down each bore came out clean, so we were good to go and what a cool dry smoke from a pipe weighing exactly 1oz.

    Working and smoking Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed in a smooth briar calabash shape 1984 Fero Danese made in Italy. It's another beautiful fall day that I get to watch from my window. Suzy and Molly are doing that for me, too.

    Wife is upstairs sleeping and enjoying some quiet to do so. I am in my truck enjoying some margate imported from Texas via rondel65 in my cavernous altinok Canadian. I smoked a tin of this early on and really enjoyed it and can't figure out why I never got any more. Oh yeah, it's never available. Thanks Ron, this one is hitting the spot rich now.

    As to the weather right now, it is cold! 26 degrees with gusting wind and occasional horizontal snow flurries.

    A courier just dropped off my Eltang Sailor pipe! So of course I had to take a break from work to check it out. Had a bowl of McC's 511o in the Eltang. Very nice smoker. Tiny bowl, about a 10 or 15 minute smoke, Ideal for winter, maybe, when it's too cold for a 40 minute smoke. Stem isn't ideal for clenching but that's fine. Had it with coffee.

    Very winter like here on the Lake.

    The EGR is a fine fine smoke, though I haven't tried it recently. My last big tin (or tub, I can't remember) was purchased a LONG time ago, maybe in the 90's. And its contents went up in smoke in record time. For an aromatic it had a ton of flavor, and the aroma was particularly good.

    The rumor at the time was that grape juice was used as a flavoring or aroma enhancer. By my nose it had that classic pipey fragrance with a little something extra. The nic was also good but not too much for an all day smoke. A sociable smoke with nothing sacrificed in terms of flavor and enjoyment. I don't know if large sizes are available nowadays. But if so, I'll definitely try it again.

    Prosit Simon! :toast:

    I was wondering if that Castello gives a banana flavor to everything that's smoked in it. When I first saw you smoking it in that photo last Saturday, I thought you were eating a banana :whis:.

    Just kidding, of course. That pipe is a real stunner :th1:.

    Now joining Simmo with bowl of Escudo 2000 in a Maurizio Tombari Le Nuvole ... light as a cloud

    DBear is ok. Just very very busy - he's been stuck in a whole ton of work. Thuber is probably trying to catch up... :bag:
