    Nothing calms the nerves like bluegrass songs about cocaine and women. :) Nah but really, Old Crow is great. They put on a fun live show too.

    Stonehaven in a Peterson 303. Wow, totally lives up to the hype. Out of this world good. I might have a problem on my hands here since this one is so rare. I know this much: I could never age this stuff for nine years. Couldn't keep my hands off of it long enough. It'll be hard enough to jar some of this for a few years, honestly.

    Looks like rain, but it hasn't happened yet. I really hope it does, though. Either way, it sure feels nice out tonight. Enjoy your Saturday night, folks!

    I am so confused. That is the shiniest, least corny looking cob I've ever seen. :D

    I studied most of the afternoon, with a few short breaks to hop on here. Now Doctor Who is on. First a repeat of the last episode, then an hour from now, a NEW episode.

    So I just had dinner, now I'm sitting down to some television and this:

    That sounds good, but I've never tried Walnut Flake. Maybe someday.

    Oh, but you remind me, a sample of Three Nuns rubbed made it's way to me and I haven't tried that one yet! Later tonight :)

    Walnut Flake is really something special, at least for those of us west of the pond. I put it right up there with St Bruno Flake and Condor Long Cut.

    I'm smoking some '07 McC No. 2035 Dark Navy Flake in a Dunhill Shell Apple tonight... This tobacco was wet when it was jarred, so I cut up a few flakes and let them air all afternoon. I think you could leave this stuff out for days & it would still be ok to smoke. Sweet and sour on the initial light, but it has settled down nicely with a little spice.

    Three Nuns rubbed, topping a little bit of Kendal Dark in the BST. Wow! This is tasty on first light :)

    The top 2/3 or so of the bowl is Three Nuns, so that's all I'll taste for a while. More Dog n Suds on the side

    Irish Oak in a Peterson 80S. First bowl of this out of a jar that I emptied two tins in to last fall. Very, very nice considering I like it straight out of the tin. Just a bit fuller and woodsy but not a tannic sort of taste.

    Just finished a bowl of PA in the CG. Needed no relights.

    Still undecided if I like PA or not. I wasn't a huge fan of CH so I thought I'd try PA. Not sure what I think of the top dressing. I think Granger might be the better OTC option for me.
