    *** What Are You Smoking? *** (October, 2019)

    Lancer slices in a Mm Charles Towne cobbler. Running the slices through several different pipes to see what it likes best. So far a wide shallow bowl has been the winner.

    Vincent Manil Reserve du Patron

    I get a heavy note of buttered popcorn out of it. It’s really great stuff. Doesn’t seem to leave much of an odor when I smoke it in the car either. It’s a great smoke for the car as it doesn’t require much attention or relighting and smokes dry enough that I only need a pipe cleaner for clean...

    *** What Are You Smoking? *** (October, 2019)

    My first bowl of F&K’s Lancer slices in a Big Ben Barbados. This stuff is really tasty. It’s kind of funny but I’ve been working my through my blends the last couple of weeks looking for just this flavor. Sweet n savory smokey with a little nicotine punch. Came in the mail today.

    50/50 Mix's

    Oh yes, another favorite and along the same experience. Quite a bit more Latakia though.

    50/50 Mix's

    C&D’s Big n Burley and chopped cigar leaf. Ought to be a regular C&D blend.

    *** What Are You Smoking? *** (October, 2019)

    Started with a small and disappointing bowl of Margate in a Chris Morgan bones Zulu dog. Hoping to not shock my taste buds, I switched over to GLP’s Quiet Nights in a lattice carved Pete meer. Didn’t work. I’ll keep smoking it but this bowl of nights tastes really off.

    Peterson System Deluxe cant pass pipecleaner

    P-lip stems are difficult to run a pipe cleaner down as well. This may be your problem. I keep a q-tip handy while smoking my system pipes. Mid smoke I’ll swab out the moisture well and run pipe cleaners through stem and pipe, reassemble, and relight.

    GH&Co’s Sweet Whiskey rope, cut into coins, broken up, run through a coffee grinder until it resembles a medium/coarse cut, spread out on a terra-cotta dish, dried in the sun for 5-6 minutes in a MM Charles Towne cobbler. Yes, it was worth the trouble.

    Black Frigate in a cob. Smoke, relight, repeat. Good stuff otherwise.
