    Taste of Summer. I think I have some LNF to try from Troy! But I also have to ask, what is the PA test??

    I enjoy aromatics, so I really like the taste of summer, especially on (sounds cliche) summer days. It has a good amount of peach aroma, but not a gross overly sweet taste, a little bit creamy, and the room smells like someone is baking a peach cobbler. My first can from Ccom had an entire layer of tobacco stuck/crusted to the bottom of the tin, so I don't know what happened there or if it affected the flavor. I just bought a new tin today and it seems fresher and more lively.

    What he said. It was shared with me by FreeStoke aka Jim. If I run across it again, I'll send it to you. Freestoke is wise beyond his years -- and I listen to him!

    Here you go:

    The PA wisdom was passed on to me by Freestoke aka Jim:

A pipe that fails to smoke PA perfectly is defective, by definition. You don't actually have to like PA to use it effectively, but it's a happy coincidence that I do like it. And once a pipe has passed the PA test, I reload with PA plus some Happy Bogie or something stout to exercise its full powers."

    Jim has certainly helped many of us, myself included. With our eternal thanks. Wise beyond his years, though? I dunno.

    He's pretty freaking old

    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Started with Boswell's Best Burley in a cob whilst sitting in the pool. Probably not the most refined location, but the best way I know how to get through these 108 F degree afternoons after work!

    This blend in my mind was inferior to Burley Kake. However, my kake is all gone. In its absence, Boswell has turned into a great backup!

    Cleared my study this evening, prepping to put down maple floors tomorrow. Quite the workout. I did so knowing that this bowl of Royal Yacht would be THIS GOOD afterwards. Out back in the brilliant 60F coolness, with a 10 Barrel Apocalypse IPA to go with.

    In a Country Gent, to boot. Happy 4th!

    Yeah, might be a bit sore. Still remember the last room I did... not the most pleasant few days after.

    Enjoying some Tambo in an old Custom-bilt after a Rocky Patel gar.

    Wow, I have that Custom-bilt's twin brother. The only difference is that mine has no rustication above the grooves near the top of the bowl. I have not smoked it in years.
