    Last night I went to a friend's 50th birthday party (her b-day is today, but she had the party last night). I brought along my Sav Bing's Favorite and the rest of the sample of Trout Stream Dan sent me for the blind taste test. I ended up finishing the rest of the (very generous sized) sample having several bowls of it last night. The room note (well, smoked outside so it wasn't really a room note) got a lot of positive comments.

    Robert Lewis 123 Mixture in my "English" straight meerschaum Pot.

    I decided to forgo opening a tin of Tree Mixture when I finished the Germain's Royal Jersey Perique that I'd been working on for the last four or five days and popped the 123 Mixture instead. I can't remember when I last smoked this (if at all) and 20 years ago I might well have dismissed it as "one of those horrible traditional English tobaccos". And that's what it is, a traditional English mixture (with a slight twist), but horrible it certainly is not.

    A medium ribbon cut of approximately equal quantities of very dark-brown - nearly black, red-brown, and lighter tobaccos with a smattering of black and greenish leaf thrown in. The tin note speaks sweetly of Virginia and Cavendish with slight sour overtones of Orientals and a hint, just a hint, of the smokiness of Latakia. It packs easily directly from the tin with just the right level of moisture and lights easily. The Virginia and, in particular the Cavendish are first to hit your taste buds. Sweet but not cloying. The Cavendish stays with you throughout. Sour fruity notes from the Orientals soon become evident with the Latakia staying in the background providing a satisfying balance. Good enough as is, but there is more. A cigar-like richness and creaminess develops as the bowl progresses and indeed, investigation shows that there is "Havana leaf" in the blend. Obviously nothing like a cigar as such, but it does have some of the character. Keeps going well with little effort; it's a bowl you can puff slowly and casually yet still stoke up with little notice should the desire take you. Nicotine is light to at best, moderate. This is an all day smoker. I don't think that you would easily tire of it.

    A Latakia light, Cavendish driven, English mixture with some cigar-like qualities.

    A keeper. I'll have anoher bowl.

    Thanks, Jim. I've lost 32 pounds this year so far, pretty much spurred by the above sentiment.

    Oooh. I do like that, and intend to make my 9-year old daughter quite sick of it by this time next month.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    But of course - no good will come of it.

    Robert Lewis 123 Mixture, SG Black XX this morning/afternoon/early evening.

    Tonight proper started with Peterson Special Reserve 2012 (it's highly recommended, you know) in a "project" pipe. For "fun" I decided to see what I could do with a 1950s Ropp Bent Billiard (just a cooking model if I remember correctly) that was beaten about beyond any real redemption. Rim beated badly - round, not flat at all, shank similarly bashed, stem badly oxidised and heavily chewed. I took about 2.5mm off the rim, shortened the shank to balance that change, slimmed down all over to remove the dents in the briar and stem and then repolished. It's now a half-decent (but no more) no-name pipe. Just about worthy of a tobacconist's basket. One visible fill, still a few small flaws and pits in the briar ('50s... Still difficult to get decent pipe-wood in France) and a little nick on the inside diameter of the (quite small) bowl. I would have had to take of another 1.5mm to get rid of that. Smoked well for a first half bowl of a wet smoking tobacco. Gurgled, but slow and cool. Nice aromatic; great base tobaccos, topping similar to Luxury Mixture at steroid levels, but troublesome.

    Smoking some of Troy's 3 year old FVF in my bent Ehrlich. All the flavors I love in new FVF, but excellently mellowed. The complexity continues to grow and I may not get done the work I had planned on doing during this bowl!

    Don't worry, Troy, it is a dedicated VA flake pipe!!

    Enjoying my first bowl of LNF in my 4 Dot "Family Era". Very, very nice flavor -- and so far no bite. This is one pipe that already passed the PA test, so I knew I was free to move on to something more adventurous! A fine night it is!

    Are you referring to Sutliff Taste of Summer or LNF?
