This is a discussion on Tonights Smoke II - FOR PIPES within the General Pipe Forum forums, part of the Pipe Smokers Forums category; puffed on some LNF, in my HIS bend dublin. the more I smoke it, the more I like it.
This evening I had a bowl of Exhausted Rooster in a MM Diplomat corncob followed by a bowl of Dunhill JackKnife Plug in a MM Diplomat corncob and finally a bowl of Marlin Flake in a MM Country Gentleman corncob. I have not had the Exhausted Rooster in many months and initially I did not like it, but it had a very good taste this evening; probably due to aging. The JackKnife Plug was excellent; I shaved small pieces from this plug and it was delightful. The Marlin Flake is definitely a winner; I love this tobacco. I topped off these smokes with an ice cold glass of "Blue Moon Belgium White Ale" brew and I had a relaxing evening.
PS English Orintal Supreme in my french made calabasa lovely smoke. great taste of english, ornintal leaf, and Virginia.
Still debating if this calabasa is a flake or a ribbon cut pipe go figure hehe
FVF in a Peterson Killarney 408 that after a little doctoring, (sanding the stain out of the bowl and opening the stem a bit), is smoking so nicely that it has finally earned a regular spot in my rotation.
My first, and definitely not my last, bowl of Red Rapparee. I was afraid to try this for a while; I kept imagining HOTW with orientals sprinkled in which sounded horrible. I shouldn't have worried. Looks like this might be another Kohlhase & Kopp to add to the cellar.
