    Well the little Ropp Sitter gets no love as it needs a wee bit of work so I decided to give it a try out today with some Latakia Flake and we have a winner, the combination of the bit of Cherry Wood flavor off the bowl mixed with Latakia is very nice. The work on the shaft will commence shortly. Having a concentrated mix of Danish Khave with Brazilian Cerrado and a double French Roast espresso topping on the side. :D

    Home at last. Had a nice bowl of Murphy's Mistake in the Dip on the way home. Have now fired up the 2013 POY with a couple coins of Escudo.

    That has to be about the best ring grain I've ever seen. Really, really excellent!

    Smoking Peretti Oriental #40 in a Falcon.

    If you find you have a taste for Lat, I'd be glad to send you a sample of Pirate Kake--pretty much the ultimate Lat Bomb. :bing:

    Have you sent out that box, yet? If not there was some H&H Cerberus in it that I think has more lat in it than PK. It's also a cleaner tasting Lat. Got some going in a Falcon right now. Pretty tasty and stays the same taste to the bottom.

    I know you were talking to someone else, but I figured I'd give my 2c. Plumcake is an enjoyable smoke~ good flavor, I'd call it an after dinner dessert smoke~ It's also mild enough to be a good morning smoke. I would however like to mention another tin. SMELLS just like it, and TASTES like it as well, only it's nowhere near as topped & cased & that's C&D Black Frigate. Very similar, but the C&D won't give you any goop from topping / casings. Not that there's much in plumcake, but you do get the gurgles from time to time with the plumcake. Plumcake IS an excellent flavor & a good reliable tin......if you prefer not to deal with the gurgling, I'd go w. the black frigate~

    C&D Black Frigate is excellent!

    Man!
    The box has left the building and I didn't try it! What a dumbass I am, never realized. A day late and a dollar short as usual. In my defense, I DID toss a couple more bowls-worth of Murphy's Mistake in a baggie before the box went to the P.O. :oops:

    My god... it's beautiful. I'm slack-jawed (well, more slack-jawed than usual). :)

    Post-workout smoke is Beck's Ol' Limey Bastard in a Savinelli. Latakia after heavy exercise is kinda weird, but whatever. I like it.

    Went to the B&M today and bought some more Escudo, decided to try Maple Street, and bought a Comacho. When I came home I had an envelope waiting from a PSF member and so now, thanks to the generosity of dBear, I am smoking Peretti Park Square in a 2013 Peterson St Pat pipe.

    [​IMG] Stayed in bed most of the day recovering after Burger Night with the girl kid. The crystal ball says to rehydrate and smoke something simple. That sounded like a mix of 5Bros. and Skandinajik in some cobs. Good evening, good people.

    Another bowl of Erinmore Flake. Very much enjoying this tobacco , which is a surprise as there is quite a lot of fruit flavours in there.

    The Weybridge was fantastic. I see why it's popular. As a contrast, I'm smoking MacBaren Virginia #1 in a smooth 1977 Medley (GBD second) medium bend billiard with a flat underside. Simply Lemonade is my drink.

    G&H Brown Flake #7 in a no-name meer, I think the young lady at the b&m dispensed from the bottom of the jar! - it's more of a broken flake, but I didn't protest - just loading as it comes, and it's fine.
