    You have enough time to smoke one more bowl for the rest of your life. Which pipe and which tobacco?

    If my wife catches me buying one more pipe this month, it WILL be the last bowl I ever smoke.

    Falcon chrome straight, Istanbul bowl, Dunhill RY.

    Tough one. I can only narrow it down to five, in no particular order:

    LBF in pretty much anything. Let's go with a Peterson Shannon billiard. Simple pipe, but one that seems made for this tobacco.

    Anniversary Kake in my Brebbia brandy. Love this combo.

    Haddo's in my large Bjarne Nielsen ball. Made for each other.

    Escudo in a Stanwell 242. Exquisite combo.

    And, believe it or not, Angler's Dream in a cob. It's just so easy. And so good.

    There's my answer. But I feel bad because there are so many other pipe/tobacco combos I love!

    I've found that certain pipes and tobaccos certainly seem to find each other.

    At this point, I'd still have to flip a coin - either Victorian Standard in my Bjarne sitter, or Black House in my Great Dane.

    Kate's Special in my Peterson

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    A good calabash. Probably a Baki, and Esoterica Margate

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Charatan's English mixture in a pipe with a bowl the size of a wash bucket.

    Hey, it's my choice, right? If it's the last one, might as well make it a doozy.

    Dunhill Nightcap in... Well this is the hard part. Either my Peterson System 312 or my little Wellington Pete copy. Probably the Pete just for the more standard bowl size.

    1993 Dunhill Durbar in my Vauen Fashion 167. The pipe smokes everything English beautifully down to the bottom and leaves nothing but fine white ash. Hands-down the best smoker I own. But putting the 20 year old Durbar in there takes it to a whole new level. You know, it's the kind of smoke that should be reserved for the best moments in life... marriage, birth of first child, winning the lottery, and so on...

    1993 Dunhill Durbar

    I'd like to make it a tin of Margate from 1993. If it's my last bowl, might as well smoke some baccy thats as old as me.

    Easy choice for me; my favorite pipe and my favorite tobacco, so that would be my Savinelli 645 Bent Apple with some Mississippi River.

    Just one bowl then I die 15 min later? Probably CBW, it was my first smoke and I would like for it to be my last, more for memory than taste. If I had one blend to smoke the rest of my *50 years* life I would choose either Larry's blend from H&H or Black duck from C&D, both lat blends and I would have it no other way

    For old time's sake, Patterson's Mixture in my Dunhill Root Briar Lovat. The Owl Shop in New Haven shipped it to me in 1963, when I was overseas in the service and I had them keep me stocked up with Patterson's during my tour.

    This restless quest would never settle on one pipe or one tobacco, but for the next fifteen minutes,
    I'd be happy with my Joh's freestyle tomahawk nicely packed with Dunhill Mixture 965. Ask me in
    an hour, and it might be my Peterson Killarney B11 with Altadis Balkan II.

    Hmmm...
    Probably FVF in my Larsen Copenhagen Freehand from the '60s, but Edgeworth Sliced in my Stanwell Jubilee is awesome. Of course, I haven't even tried the tin of Edgeworth from Larus age yet...I might have to go with that in my Freehand.

    Kate's Special in my Peterson

    Just curious? What is "Kate's Special?" Some local bulk?

    IIRC, Jim Murray dubbed one of his self-blended pipe tobaccos after his daughter, Kate -- that's the only blend I remember with that name.
