Had a nice bowl of old lodge from pipesandcigars.com (part of a sampler pack kindly sent to me by professormike) in a semi bent estate pipe i picked up from ebay. My first real taste of a latakia blend and I'm definitly going to have to try some more.
This just isnt working out for me tonight. I started off with a bowl of 2020 Matured Cake in a meer and after about a quarter bowl it really started to bite and just not taste good. The baccy is a bit on the dry side. Rather then fight with it I figured I would dump it and start over, this time with some aged Grousemoor but damn if it will stay lit. Plus I packed it too tight.
I'm just generally not having a good pipin' evening here.. I haven't really had this happen before that I recall.
ill tell ya what i smoked some lbf in a 314 pete which is great BUT tonight i had it in a butz choquin full bent granada and it was like heaven, packed right, puffed right, 1 relight well yall know it was real damn good. it was one of them this is why i smoke a pipe moments mike
Went to a local cigar shop that just opened and they had this in bulk for cheap cheap. I bought an oz of this and an oz of BCA and rang up at $3.99 ---> so that's like, what? $2 an oz? Hot dog, i wish they carried more blends.
Just smoked some Red Cake. I must say, what a good smoke. I really liked it as the full Virginian flavor comes through. However, it was quite bitey. This blend would be completely awesome if it didn't bite... remedies?
