    I had one of those moments yesterday, in regard to pipe smoking, where everything came together in sheer perfection. I had loaded up an old vintage MM Washington with Shortcut to Mushrooms two day previously and left it to rest on my pipe stand, thinking I'd get to it within the hour.

    Well, I got really busy and the opportunity didn't present itself as I hoped. Two days later I'm walking by the fridge to take out the garbage, and notice my pipe on the stand on top of the fridge. I took it off and checked the tobacco with my thumb to see how dried out it was, but to my surprise wasn't as dry as I thought it would be.

    So I take out the garbage, stopping to stick my pipe in my mouth, and after dropping off the rubbish, decided to light up that pipe.

    Well, I don't know if it was a combination of the perfect moisture level, the pipe itt was packed in (cob) or everything considered, but it lit up easily and smoked cool and creamy all the way to the end.

    The STM in the cob was nothing short of one of the most pleasurable, perfect smokes I can recall.

    I loaded up another this afternoon to be smoked the exact same way.

    Don't know that this is worth a thread, but it's damn sure worth a try, if you please.

    Cheers!

    Those perfect moments are really something aren't they.

    How do you like STM? I was thinking about picking up a few oz to try it out. It seems to be up my ally in terms of tastes lately :bing:

    STM is great, another couple of good blends from JFH is Whiskey Biscuit Gravy and Ruins of Isengard.

    I'm going to get some of that WBG, I'm dying to try that stuff. And I need more STM to boot. Good excuse to place and order in the near future.
