    Squadron Leader in the 314... real enjoyable slow, contemplative smoke despite getting so damn cold I can hardly feel my fingers now...

    OJ on the side just to keep the whistle weet...

    Loaded up a bowl of

    TB 1928 in a Tinsky 2010 CP and as that got going....Big Brown drove up and delivered some Dunhill Flake and Deluxe Navy Rollz.

    so nexr up was

    DH Flake in a Savinelli "kingz kross" (yeah, another one :) )

    Just fired up is

    DH DNR in a MM Legend

    Well, the Flake was Excellent right from the tin. Nice sweet, smooth, burnt to gray-white and a def winner IMO. If you like va'z..........

    Now, where was I?

    Oh yeah, TB 1928 in a Tinsky 2010 CP got placed in DGT category and now smokin'....yummy!

    This iz a very very nice McClelland made TB toby. If you're a fan of TB 'baccy...you owe it to yourself to try this one.

    Onto DH DNR a very nice smoothe va-per that has sweet, spicey, tart, and light peppery-ness going on to the end. Elegant!

    Initially, I prefer Flake over DNR but that waz only after a single bowl of each. Am planning on diving in further tomorrow. :)

    Just posted my review of my 'nightcap' smoke...Hermit Night Watch in the lattice billiard meer. This stuff is going on the list with the Penzance and Old Dog. :thumbsu: The Celestial Seasonings tea may have colored my flavor impressions at first, though.

    Chelsea Morning in a Pete, procrastinating with Netflix. Just finished Die Hard and I'm about to start Die Hard 2, perhaps to be followed by Die Hard with a Vengeance. Hey, I can multitask.

    Good moanin' piperz!

    DH Flake in a MM Legend, :coffee: w/egg-nog as the creamer.

    Again, I'm impressed with this toby. Very well behaved in the bowl, smokez with nearly no "fire tending" required. Taste is a very mild sweet & tart going with each waving in and out at different times and both together at other times. Visually.................a very enticing row of stack fallen flakes in the tin. Very similar to OGS/ABF in appearance.

    A very nice elegant smoke.......................and here I am smoking Dunhill in a COB!

    Look at it this way, Ed...you're righting the universe from the damage Hef did by smoking Mixture 79 in a Dunhill! And I'll be assisting you shortly...I cracked a tin of Flake last night...to be cremated in a Hackert MM Freehand, no less! If I could just push my wife out the door a bit sooner...

    Smoking some McConnell's Scottish Cake in my one and only Stanwell, Twining's Irish breakfast tea with a bit o' clover honey as my beverage of choice. It's a good combo for a cold morning.

    Wanker. :eek:hyeah:

    If I had a Dunhill pipe, I probably wouldn't of had the scratch for the toby!

    Wifey's gone....Dunhill Flake in a Hackert MM Freehand. Man, I got a solid burst of flavor on light up...a good thing, because I'm obviously getting a cold...can't tell doodley squat from a snork :crybaby:. Ed, your sweet/tart description seems accurate to me.

    Good ol' fashioned caffeinated coffee on the side...which may help explain the buzz I'm feeling.

    Yeah, Ok....more DF in the Hackert.

    Man alive, occluded shnozz or no, near the end of that solitary flake there was a distinct creamy, warm yeasty bread thing goin' on. If my nose isn't lying, that was a stellar finish! What a wonderful evolution of flavor...(...and this stuff is as green as can be!)

    Let's see if I can repeat it with two flakes... :wave:

    1/3 a bowl of Sillem's Black in a cob on the way home for lunch, I think. Sounds good in my head anyway.
