    James Fox - Shean's Blend in the Winslow Crown

    Never had it before, and in fact I'd never heard of it. Got a sample from a generous member with a note saying it can only be had at the shop. Good stuff! Fruity, a little vanilla or honey or something in there, too. Just a bit of bite, but some good sweetness, and it's burning dry and clean

    No, but they're quite different. I just love the way the Turkish works with the VA and burley in First Pipe. It's masterful, to be sure.

    Special Latakia Flake in a Dunhill. Yet another magical blend. Beautiful weather today, a real stunner. High was 64F, and it's now 53F. Have a good week, folks.

    The daily Old Joe Krantz in the Stanwell.

    Dr. Pepper on the side.

    Still doing online work, that's what I get for forgetting to do it throughout the week.

    Dunhill Royal Yacht in my Brighsm 446. A less talked-about blend from them, but quite interesting.

    Probably the last smoke of the day
    Troost Special Cavendish in the Country Gent
    Good combo especially with more Dr. Pepper and South Park.

    This evening's roster: Anniversary Kake in my Karl Erik Ekstravagant A, followed by Onyx in a medium bent meer with a lined and etched egg shaped bowl. Then it was Dark Flake in a smooth Fero Danese Italy small calabash shape . My last smoke of the evening/morning is Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a half smooth, half rusticated Savinelli Autograph full bend.

    OldSoule65: These days, yes. I have open tins of several tobaccos and a few in baggies - nine overall at the moment. When I smoke up a blend, I open something else. I have about an ounce or so left of the ERR Match, which I have grown to like. When that's done, I'll open an aromatic of some kind, maybe Sail Green because I have one pouch left (won't buy it again, but I wanted to try it) or should I go for a Burley? Haven't decided yet. I finished all my Black House bulk, so now I'm smoking Onyx for my English, and that will take a while since I have 300 grams of it. I'm giving Amphora Red a rest for a while, so when I go back, I'll enjoy the fruity flavor. I really like the Anni Kake, and Louisiana Red as you have seen, but I want to age the rest of my tins of AK, so when this tin is done, I may give that blend a rest, too. The nice thing about switching around some blends - besides avoiding too much familiarity - is that I have a number of pipes not being smoked because they are dedicated to certain blends and are waiting for me to switch up and get to them.

    I'm going to be out of town for a little bit and won't get to post during that time or smoke near as much as I'm used to. That will be hard to take since I constantly smoke. I'll miss reading and posting, darn it! I enjoy reading what others smoke as much as I like telling what I smoke.

    Good Monday Morning Gents,
    I'm starting the week off with FVF in my Altinok Pear with black coffee for the ride in this morning.

    Happy Smoking,
    Paul
