    I'm a few minutes early on the East Coast, but I'll start off the month of August with D&R A.B. Rimboche in a smooth straight pre-transition Barling 313 T.V.F. EXEXEL pot with a black ebonite stem. I'm part way through this bowl already. Have enough left for a bowl or so.

    A third of the way through this bowl of Rich Dark Flake in a 1984 black sandblasted straight Dunhill Shell 4103 Billiard with a black vulcanite stem. This will finish the sample.

    Just finished a nice big bowl of Black Frigate in my Brebbia Lido; An excellent nightcap.

    @JimInks
    I couldn't help but notice that your profile pic resembles the man on the label for Edward G. Robinson(presumably Edward G. Robinson himself). If so, is that a particular favourite blend of yours?

    Regards,

    Justin

    Phantomwolf: yes, it is. Robinson is one on my favorite actors, too. I enjoy the blend very much, and if you want a mild aromatic, you should try it. I have a long history with this blend, and if you're interested in hearing about it, listen to part two of my interview with Brian Levine:
    http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/radio-talk-show/the-pipes-magazine-radio-show-episode-95/#more-8134

    Here is part one of the interview:

    Here's a link to my review of the blend:

    Not far from finishing this bowl of D&R Two Timer Gold in a smooth full bend 1977 Crown Coachman 215 egg with a black vulcanite stem.

    Smoking a new working blend. I like this one quite a bit, but it's not quite there. In some kind of Savinelli.

    3rd bowl of Super Value English Mixture today. Trying to decipher this one. haha I swear it is an aromatic and they use liquid smoke as a topping. Anyway, it's really great for the price. This blend certainly wins 1st place in the 'Broke-Smoke' championships.
