    More LBF. This time in a Peterson Shannon billiard.

    Not sure why, but this relatively inexpensive pipe and tobacco combination is heavenly.

    Lighting up my first bowl from a sample of vintage 1978 MacBaren Symphony in a smooth three quarter bend 1979 made in Israel pipe. I've recently been smoking the current production of this and the taste of the new one is so tame in comparison. I'd almost swear it wasn't the same tobacco. This is deeper and spicier in taste and absolutely wonderful!

    Couldn't sleep, so while awake, I decided to directly compare the 1978 MacBaren Symphony I had smoked before going to sleep with the current blend, which I'm now smoking in a straight 2012 Rekamepip made Sugar Barrel pipe. The recent vintage is very toned down as I noted earlier. The spice note is here, but toned down as is the sweetness. So ageing all these years has amped up those flavors into a real treat. I had the same experience with the vintage 1985 MacBaren Navy Flake, which I'm nearly out of. Same for the McCelland Navy Cavendish that I recently consumed. All three blends are spicer and sweeter with age.

    I just finished smoking a bowl of EMP in a new puchase, a 1980 (??) Astley's Rhodesian. The pipe was a bit dirty but my work yielded good results with no ghosting. It weighs just 45 grams and while the size of my 3X Ashtons actually weights less than my 2X Ashton Rhodesian. I'm quite pleased with this one.

    Earlier, I smoked Burley Flake #3 in a 1990 Peterson Irish Second Oom Paul natural. Now, it's Dark Birdseye in an old Barling straight Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. billiard with a silver band and military bit. And I'm trying to decide on my smoke line up for the evening since I have the day off.
