    Just loaded my Savinelli 111KS, normally my latakia pipe, with some Brown X Rope. The lat ghost goes nicely, although this big ass bowl of X might do me in...

    Now smoking McClelland Balkan Beauty in a 1990s smooth Peterson Captain Pete XL80 bulldog with a black vulcanite stem and p-lip. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Just got back from the doctor, who congratulated me on being a non-smoker after checking my lungs. Said he was surprised I ever smoked. Smart fella, there.

    Having another bowl of C&D Pirate Kake in the Country Gentleman. Not a blend I smoke too often but had a jar in the cellar, and am revisiting it after about a year and a half. Enjoying it quite a bit.

    Farmer's Gold 'smooth' with added Perique in a MM Pride using a Barling replacement 'military mount' stem I had to modify to make comfortable because my 'stem guy' didn't bother to do any finish work other than polish the new 'blank'.
    The button was huge and sharp edged. A little dremel, file and micro mesh work made it much more comfortable.

    D&R London Dock in a Roger's Standard smooth straight apple, a hidden gem in a 'group' estate buy intended for the racks in the deal.
    A rare aromatic smoke for me. I find it very similar to another aro, SWRA, but maybe more flavorful. I have no idea what the flavoring is, but to me, there seems to be a cherry note. Smooth and easy burning with no goop and a mild to medium nic content.
    The Roger's apple is small so I don't use up this tin too fast.

    Chamber is no more than a hair over .5" but I've got a tamper that works for it. Nice, light and jaunty smoker.

    Was seriously craving something with some strength, so I just finished my first bowl of Jacknife plug which was quite satisfying. Definitely one of the higher N content blends I've had in a while. Any recommendations of similarly strengthed blends?
