    Someone here recommended MacBaren's Original Choice as a good
    tobacco for breaking in a new pipe. I bought a 1lb bag of it,
    am smoking it now in one of my Savinelli 321 Authors, and really
    enjoying it.

    Part way through this bowl of year 2015 HU Directors Cut in a smooth straight Lane era Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort saddle stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad. Have enough for one more bowl. Dunno what blend will replace it for this pipe. A bottle of Cheerwine made with pure cane sugar is my drink. Watching Mad Dog Russo.

    Just finished my second pipe of the day. I took my Dunhill bent shell out for a walk with a bowl of PennHooker Green.
    This is a VA blend that in print is advertised as 'mint' flavored. D&R does produce a few 'aromatic' tobaccos, but they're typically very light handed with any toppings and I doubt that they case anything.
    Anyway, this green was over the top mentholated when I first got it, although it still had appreciable tobacco flavor.
    After a few months in storage, the menthol has dissipated quite a bit, so that this blend offers less of a shock and more of a change of pace that is not at all displeasing.
