    RRR in a Falcon. Lemonade in the same mug as always and more Certified AAA homemade icecubes cooling it down and maintaining the proper temp in the dbl walled mug.

    For whatever reason, I don't think I enjoy Sutliff Old Vienna as much as I used to. The last couple bowls have seemed a bit sour/chemically. I've had it in a ziplock. Maybe it became unsealed at some point, causing it to taste odd.

    Listing my next smoke a few minutes early so I can go back to the studio for a while. Louisiana Red in a 1999 medium bend black sandblast Savinelli Tris 677KS apple with a cumberland stem.

    Decided to go with a small bowl of Sutliff French Quarter to end the night instead. Getting ready to light it, I hope this stuff has laid down a bit after several months sitting in an open tin. Still smells ways too cased. Maybe I should let it really dry out with no lid for a few days, rehydrate, and repeat.

    EDIT: It has gotten quite a bit better after having been open for about 4-5 months. When I first got it, I left it open with the lid off overnight to dry most of the moisture out. This stuff may be quite a bit better when I come back to it in another 6+ months. Kind of tasting the tobaccos at this point. Very curious cut.

    So, at last, my last smoke. My last one om my balcony, that is. Cold, and daybreak still an hour away. Tonight I´ll have another balcony and another smoke. Borkum Riff Bourbon in a Stanwell billiard.

    Holy COW! I think this stuff really needs to sit open for quite some time. This is completely different than when it was wet and fresh. I mean, I can taste the different tobaccos now. The flavored casing has taken a nice nuance. All my French Quarter looks like it's covered in sugar now. This is actually pretty good stuff now. Next tin I get, I'm going to open it, and open the lid for days until it feels almost dry. Then jar it for a year+. good stuff suddenly. Room note will be great in the winter indoor smoking.

    Good evening folks,

    I'm smoking Shortcut to mushrooms in a vintage MM General with a double 40 Creek chaser. I'm honestly wondering why I don't smoke this more often. And I'm seriously thinking I should mosey over to JFH and order a bit to cellar.

    Cheers.:toast:

    AJ's VAper in the Barling. I loved FnB's AJ's with some age on it, it was very nice. I wish it would do me some good to age some as well. The new stuff is not bad. It has a very sour note to it, which is good. Not as sour as the Cambridge Flake from Peretti's but nice anyway. I like it. More lemonade as is my obvious drink of choice.

    I'd suggest Peretti's Oriental #40 or Tashkent or Midnight. Different levels of oriental & latakia in them and all three are good. The Frog Mortons might be worth exploring, as well.

    I sure hope C&D releases that Kicken Chicken next month. Wonder if anybody has heard anything about it or if they will even keep the name of it?

    Oh, I see. Well, naturally being the fine, honest citizen that I am, I just wouldn't know anything about drinking. No sir. Not me! :rolleyes: Now, if you ask about the Saint Bernard, well, that's another story. He keeps the keys to the whiskey cabinet.
