A chill but dry day earlier. Most suitable for sitting in the garden reading and smoking Tree mixture. So I had a few bowls.
It's started raining now, so I'll step up to some Black Bogie Aromatic to limit the exposure to the elements. If it keeps up I'll have to retire to my shed. I'll then be free to smoke a bowl or two of the highly regarded and recommended Peterson's Special 2012 Reserve. This one needs enclosure to allow the room note somewhere to linger. I do hope the weather remains inclement (Never hear this word apart from in the negative. "What's the weather like? Most clement indeed.")
I'm smoking the rapidly dwindling McClelland's Aurora tonight; I sure hope it doesn't take two years to try this one again!
enjoyed a bowl of FVF that's been sitting in a jar for 18 months. When I popped the jar, the flakes were covered in white crystals. wow fruits of my labor aka patients LOL. Smoked in my sav Mr' G straight billard. it was a wee bit wet, soo had trouble getting it going, but once I get the flake smoldering it was yummy :)
Bells Three Nuns in the country gentleman as I peruse Puff :)
A bit of CD Pirate Kake in my new Sav Tortuga.
Sweet Vanilla Honeydew in a Graco Ocean
Just popped a tin of C&D Mississippi Mud. Plenty of Latakia, but a decent amount of perique in there too, so it's a bit peppery. The tin note does seem to be "muddy", but of course that could just be the power of suggestion? The label states "a unique blend", or something like that - very true. It's perfectly dry and ready to smoke right out of the tin (like many of the C&D blends). I like it!
I do appreciate your comment and I have been a little busy of late to post, but I still continue to enjoy my pipes regardless of the hour.:thumb: I recently got a couple of large freehand pipes which are essentially a large piece of artistic briar, small hole for the tobacco on one end with a smaller hole for the stem. I have found that these pipes smoke very much cooler than my usual; probably because of the thick briar surrounding the tobacco.:nod: I am in the process experimenting with these pipes to determine which tobaccos are more flavorful in these pipes; I can definitely say with their large size that these pipes are not clenchers, but definite sitters.:ranger:
Getting ready for a bowl of Hamborger Veermaster.
enjoyed a bowl of bulleye in my no named straight bulldog. I had this bulleye in a jar for a bout a year. and wow it's sweeten, darker, and a lot sweetier. the perique has tone down. Soo yummy I didn't want the bowl to end. sadly it did :(
I had my first bowl of Dunhill Nightcap in my brand new Savinelli Trevi 320. It was absolutely awesome. My wife didn't enjoy the room note though....she said "it stinks" about six times.
