    Starting a new month, folks! I'm smoking half a bowl of Year 1975 Dunhill Ye Olde Signe in a 1938 straight black grain relief Dunhill OX Shell bulldog with a silver band repair and a black vulcanite stem. This will finish the sample.

    I made a blend of equal pinches of GLPs Fillmore and Dunhill 3 Year Matured... turned out to be quite nice. It was in a full-bent egg Design Berlin with a deeper bowl... smoke was delightful throughout.

    Good afternoon, leaf lovers! I hope that yours is going well. I’m having a quick smoke break with some Iwan Ries Dr. Bradley in an MM Ozark mini. I’m really enjoying the exploration of these old-style, American, bur/lat blends. The topping on this one is subtle and difficult to define. It was up front for the first light, but has since dropped back to become only an influencer that adds a just bit of sweetness to the blend. I could definitely see myself making regular appointments with this doc.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!
