Been able to make the time for a few evening pipes lately, lord knows I needed it. Enjoyed some Peterson's plug the last few nights and just puffing on some mixed burley in a cob. Life is good gentlemen.
You scored some Penzance eh?
Well, how was the magic unicorn ride? My unicorn hasn't arrived yet and inquiring minds want to know!
A friend gave me a sample when I visited him the other week. It was tasty and I would buy it if I walked into a shop and a tin was sitting there, but I wasn't impressed enough to go on a treasure hunt. I smoke 3 bowls, and then last night was just the crumbs.
I'm Bulldog born, Bulldog bred, and when I die I'll be-by-God Bulldog dead.
Now that is a fine pipe. Is it the bent one or the billiard one? I have the bent one and love it. The bowl is huge! HOTW I have not tried, but it is on my list. Is it in your regular rotation?
-Been out of town, Michael. Yeah, mine is a bent brandy and a great piece of briar at that. I don't think DC makes any pipes with regular or normal sized bowls as I have 6 estates and they all swallow a huge amount of baccy, so I need to plan ahead and clear my calendar for at least 2 hours when I fire one up fully packed, ha ha. Nice to know another DC fan is out there as they fly under the radar.
You know, HOTW is great and has many fans but, but Esoterica Dunbar (if you can find it) in a big bowl (very, very key) is my favorite vaper.
Some of my new Dunhill Flake courtesy of Steven from the newbie sampler trade! I get the feel of citrus oil on my tongue, but the flavors, while much lighter than many flakes I've had, is reminiscent of sweet cream with a dash of coffee. A bit unexpected, but very enjoyable!
The fit of the new stem is PERFECT, snugger than I could have imagined, whereas before it was a bit on the wobbly side - the connector is outstanding. As a bonus, a fluffy pipe cleaner now runs clear through to the bowl with ease. I'm about to go out and give it some Royal Yacht - I've been waiting weeks to smoke some. The meer is looking a bit dry - see if this will bring a little color back to it.
1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
Back to back bowls tonight. The weather is too nice to go inside. First was McClelland Grey Havens in my Radice Silk Cut, followed by Dan Milonga in my Boswell - the milonga is certainly satisfying my sweet tooth!
A belated report from last night: A bowl of Erinmore, followed by a bowl of DBE, followed by another half bowl of Erinmore! Ah the joys of "herfing" (does that apply to pipes??) with likeminded individuals.
1792 in an old Stanwell Royal Guard #06 . It is a bent styled pipe that is flat on the bottom, so it rests on the table on its own. I haven't smoked anything but 1792 in this one for some time and it is really tasting good tonight. I am thinking I just may dedicate it to 1792 -- after all -- it is a tobacco worthy of a dedicated pipe -- or four.
