    Stokkebye 702 Burley in a cob.

    I bought some for blending so I’m trying it out on its own. An unflavored burley that’s quite a tasty smoke By itself. I’m convinced there is a touch of dark-fired in this, but overall just under medium body, not much nicotine. Should be ideal for my blending, and I already know I’ll be smoking more of it straight. Good stuff. One more “cheap” blend from Stokkebye that provides value well beyond its price

    Around a third of a bowl left of Watch City VaPer Test Sample in the first pipe Trever Talbot made when he went to France many years ago. It's a smooth straight Algerian briar Billiard bowl with a long Canadian shank and a black vulcanite saddle stem, unbranded. Work's done for the day, and I'm reading baseball box scores.

    Sillem's Blue in a Savinelli Estella EX Billiard

    Jay, now that you have had a few bowls, are you still digging the Sillem's blue?

    I will be away camping out at Salmonfest for the weekend with no internet service. I am taking down my Savinelli Roma 315 EX to devirginize, my Genod Natural Poker, and an MM Morgan Natural. I have also brought down a smattering of options with some HH Pure Virginia, SG Squadron Leader, Rattray's Hal o the Wynd, PS 24 Nougat, and GH Sweet Rum Roll Twist, as well as a tin of Rattray's Stirling Flake and a tin of Bengal Slices, just in case

    And of course a variety of scotch, bourbon, rye, japanese, welsh, and irish whiskey, and beers galore including Pilsner Urquell, Wittekerke Wild, Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing, and some Surly Darkness Imperial Stout. Oh, and also my 3 month old daughter.

    Good parenting requires self medication from time to time. Hope everyone has a great weekend! I know I will....

    Alaskanpiper, that sounds like a rough weekend ahead of you - enjoy it!

    Right now charring a bowl of GLP Stratford in my Castello Old Antiquari KKKK. The smoke will be accompanied by a Bavarian Märzen beer and Jack Kerouacs "On The Road".
