    Evening (well, for me).

    Just finished some Town Topic in my Caminetto. Since this is such a big bowl,
    I'll be doing only aromatics in it from now on. My dedicated aro pipe. Still
    haven't decided what pipe will be the VA pipe. Sipping on some Scotch before
    hitting the sheets.

    As I used to live in the Bay Area, Union Square is starting to hold a VERY
    favourable place in my heart. For anyone who has not tried it....SHAME!!!!!!! :sword:

    Venidje Supreme in a meerschaum bent billiard - another blend I am trying to decipher... but this one is showing some real promise. This is my third bowl and each has been better than the last. Mildy spicy... mellow, yet complex...

    Hey Dub - I think it is worth the sample. As the bowl progresses, the Va starts to add a nice sweetness to the smoke. I guess in simple terms I would call it a mildly spicy Va. It did very well in the meer where the nuances could be better detected. I also believe that, because of the Va, it would age wonderfully. I'm a fan of McC's Virginia blends anyway and this is a nice change of pace from a straight Virginia.

    I will probably have one more bowl this weekend and then put it aside for a bit to see how it ages.

    Oh yea... I did need to dry it for a bit to keep it burning well. It doesn't seem too moist in the tin and its a ribbon, but my first smoke was a battle of re-lights. This last one went very well after 30 minutes of being spread out on the counter.

    If you give it a try, let me know what you think.

    Smoking some very aged (8 years) Frog Morton in my Savinelli. It seems sweeter now and the Latakia is even more mellow than before. Smooth, creamy smoke. Yumm!

    gave SG's perfection another shot in my savi 305, had 3 weeks of aging in my mason jar and seemed to improve the flavor as I found it an enjoyable lighter bodied smoke ;)
