    Wessex CBD flake in the Castello Trademark billiard.

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Drexel VIII in a Falcon.


    One flake, fold and stuffed is perfect for the standard Falcon pipe bowl. First impression is an uncased mild version of LNF. After about 10% into the bowl the Perique disappears. Nothing special. If the Perique hung around I'd prefer LNF over this. Since it disappears, I'd say Newminster 400 is more enjoyable.

    Just my 2¢. YMMV

    Half way thru my first bowl of Mac Baren Navy Flake. Trying the fold and stuff method in my MM legend bent stem. Its going strong and very flavourful, though I can't detect the nuances as well as most of you! I know I enjoy a blend when I just can't bring myself to go inside, even if I'm freezing

    Now smoking C&D Dreams of Kadath in a mid-70s straight smooth octagonal paneled Jeanet (made by Chacom) billiard with a black vulcanite saddle stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Watching The Lone Ranger marathon even though I own the series unedited on DVD.
