R. McConnell Special London Mixture
in my Sav. Nonpareil. Good lord!!
This pipe is an AMAZING smoker!
Hour and a half smoke with a couple
relights (toby was a little moist).
The thinness of the bit was just so
comfortable, and the weight (1.5 oz)
was not bad at all when clenching.
This pipe was an estate from the '80s
that I bought from SP, and I'm very
glad I did! Incredible! May have a
new favourite pipe, gents! Can't wait
to throw some GAF in this and induce
another nirvana session!
Just proves that a pipe doesn't have
to be 100+ bucks to be a fantastic
smoker. I'm thoroughly impressed!
Working on my third bowl of Five Bros. this morning. I already have my wife's promise that she'll grab whatever is left from that store later. It's been a while since I went on a single baccy tear like this...guess I'm glad it isn't ebay sourced Raven's Wing, because I can't swing selling my only kidney! Wait...no, no I can't.
Five Bros. isn't a heart attack in a pouch, but it is much punchier than CH, PA, etc. What is surprising me is I'm picking up subtle undertones of flavor I don't remember last time I had some. If it was a nic bomb only, I'd pass it by.
That said, I have to give it a rest. My other tins are getting jealous.
Dunhill Nightcap in a Ben Wade brandy. First time for Nightcap, really liked the strength of it. Wanted to lay down afterwards, hence the name, with the same power as a hearty cuban Cohiba, or good maduro Nicaraguan cigar.
