Carter Hall in a Peterson Dalkey #68. Only about a third of a bowl, it's brand new.
Lord, that's beautiful.
Puffing on a bowl of Davidoff's Danish Mixture
McClelland's A.M. Pipe in my gurgly Kaywoodie Saxon. Not bad stuff.

Just went to the Tinderbox, bought a few tins and smoked a bowl of Yellow & Brown
First ever bowl of Presbyterian Mixture. So far I like it! This is my kind of blend...medium bodied, oriental forward with a solid and enjoyable VA base, little (if any) latakia. I am smoking it in a pipe I use for "English" blends, so perhaps it is altering the flavor a bit. There is debate as to weather or not it contains latakia at all. The description on my tin does not make the claim that there is, but formerly tin descriptions apparently did. Because I'm smoking it in a pipe which I use with latakia blends, I can not determine if it's mostly ghosts or if I'm tasting any lat in this blend - but if it's there, only a hint of it exists.
This is something I'm sure I'll grow quite fond of! Only drawbacks are, with this particular session, it is burning a touch hot and fast. This may likely have to do with my packing this go round, so I can't fault the tobacco for it. But the flavor is great
Ah, seems like forever since I had seen that pipe. Like seeing an old friend.
Thanks Kiowapipe... I had it restored (frame off) a few years ago, but it gets driven quite a bit... I tend to put about 6 - 10K on it a year (more than most "show-car" owners)... Can't really puff away in it, though, since the wind gets so brutal, but it's a lot of fun on trips.
Sugar Barrel in a MM Legend
Petersons Irish Oak in my old Parker
Ennerdale in a cob. The only pipe I can smoke it in. Ennerdale is the unsolved tragic murder of pipe tobaccos: it's going to leave an angry ghost.
Great pics, TT. Looks like you and your son had a lot of fun.
A new brand for me, Rattrays Brown Clunee in a Castello sea rock slight bent billiard. I love the tin aroma, need to smoke some more. Perhaps I should sneak out for another bowl and some Balvenie.
I'm spending time in a hotel just down the road from a JR cigar shop. Nice selection of un typical toby.
