    How do you find the Hyde Park? Have left a bowl out to dry for later, still making my mind up on this one

    Cut the bottom of a white plastic milk container if you have those and keep enough of the bottom and side to make a fit over filter you can either add with Velcro or masking tape, it makes a great flash filter for those built in flashes works much like a gel filter on the expensive add on flashes.

    Let me tell you: when I first saw Sid's photo, the old pulse quickened in memory of past shop accidents ... very violent episodes they can be. A great relief to hear that he came out of it OK. A few minutes later though I did notice what a fine shade of red that was.

    And this bowl of Mixture in a straight MM Diplomat is pretty fine too. I think Mac Baren has been tweaking their formulas lately. Mixture is spicier, with a stronger note of dark-fired Kentucky. Nice! There are more jet-black ribbons in there, making it look almost like an English blend. And Plumcake is also a bit feistier due to the amped up Syrian latakia.

    Maybe they do this in response to changing consumer preferences: today's pipe smoker probably does prefer a livelier, fuller flavor. Or maybe the leaf they're getting is just more potent. Whatever the case, I like it!

    After two pipefuls of 1820 and a tankerful of coffee and still not being awake, I'm now trying to see if a falconful of Sextant and some Pepsi Max does any better before I get ready for another rancid shift at work.

    I love it actually, needs some drying but I think it's my favorite so far. Leave it til the last bowl of the night, just before bed, that's when it shines.

    MM Diplomat or Country Gentleman ....
    BR smokes really good out of a MM Hardwood Pipe - so you might need to try one of those too !


    just wish they carried walnut pipes because BR Whiskey Blend tastes really good in walnut pipe...
    and just to mention - Borkum Riff Rules :hbang:

    That's a wild old pipe, OT! Where'd you find it? I've never seen one like it.

    No kidding. I saved the picture so I could get a better look at it.

    Bowl No. 2 is a repeat of No. 1, as I commence the walkabout. Puff on!

    OT had a thread about those a while back. Other than the odd "colonial" clay, I've never had one, but I love those bowls that Ted has.

    Loaded my Arlington with H&H this morning (welcome back Arlington) and enjoyed a nice smoke on the morning commute with black coffee on the side. It's going to be a nice day today!

    Doing my best Old Codger impression this morning. Smoking Essence of Vermont in a cob and drinking Illy coffee from the press. Thinking about my next smoke already.

    Maybe some 2004 GLP Bohemian Scandal. :toast: Psquared
