    ***What Are You Smoking, November 2020?***

    Smoking some Pease's Odyssey in this brand new Castello 55.

    Aloha from Asia!

    Hello and welcome from a fellow Singaporean! I think that makes 3 of us on the forum now!

    New (to Me) Il Ceppo Pot from Pipestud

    Just got word that this thick-walled Il Ceppo will be delivered today! After 50 days in transit, I'm sure I'll shed a tear. Will post photos in due time.

    Hi from Singapore!

    Welcome! Fellow Singaporean checking in. I do believe the is someone else who either lives in the city or in Johor. I've since forgotten their tag, though.

    How to Exorcise an Entrenched Ghost

    Also tried, unfortunately, along with the coffee grounds! Whatever it is, it's very deep within the briar at this point.

    ***What Are You Smoking, May 2020?***

    After 50 days in transit, my 1992 Dunhill Root Briar 4102 arrived in Singapore from Walker Pipe Repair. I picked this guy up from an Ebay auction in the Netherlands on a whim last year and I think I paid around 50 GBP for it. The stem didn't fit and there was a big notch out of the side where...

    How to Exorcise an Entrenched Ghost

    Multiple attempts haven't yielded much progress. I just got the pipe back from Walker Pipe Repair's Ozone treatment and it's still ghosted, but better. Might have to bake it with some activated charcoal.

    New (to Me) Il Ceppo Pot from Pipestud

    I wish I were able to share some more photos of the pipe with you all, but unfortunately the package has taken a very long rest with USPS in Miami since late March! Here's hoping it'll arrive in Singapore sometime in the next month (and maybe a shade more tan!).

    How to Exorcise an Entrenched Ghost

    Completed and mailed a month ago but it's still at a USPS facility in Chicago!

    Show Off Your Castello Pipes Here!

    Absolutely stunning pieces. Are the two nearest to the viewer 2Ks?

    ***What Are You Smoking, April 2020?***

    Some 2015 McC No. 2015 on a beautiful Singapore day in my favourite pipe: a Castello KK NV Canadian. It's begun colouring very nicely since I got it from Tabaccheria Corti in January.

    ***What Are You Smoking, April 2020?***

    No, The Grass Crown by Colleen McCullough, but now you've given me something new to put on my list! Mithridates is one of the more fascinating characters of the 1st Century BC, only beaten by Sulla and Marius!

    ***What Are You Smoking, April 2020?***

    Though I'm awaiting the end of my 14-day mandatory isolation, I was allowed out of my quarantine quarters for a smoke on the balcony today while the family was out. 2015 McClelland No. 2015 in my Moretti chimney. I'd love this pipe if the airway was a bit bigger. It can get very gurgly.

    GLP Union Square at 10 Years

    Thanks for this review. I have 2 lbs in 8oz tubs from last year sitting in my cellar right now to prepare for the eventual FDA deeming date and I'm delighted that the harshness of that young C&D VA disappears with age. I have a 2009 tin as well and I may need to give that a try after hearing this!

    Carolina Red Flake w/2002 Perique

    Can you tell us what they said verbatim?

    Carolina Red Flake w/2002 Perique

    It almost surely isn't the 2015 batch. I remember Jeremy Reeves saying that the September/October release was the last from that crop and it appears that they've found a 2018 harvest that meets their standards. Interestingly, and I don't think anyone has picked up on this, the blend will consist...

    Carolina Red Flake w/2002 Perique

    Opening Night is great, but it can be awfully harsh when young! Doesn't keep me from cellaring about a pound of it in those big 8oz tubs. I've heard really, really good things about Simply Red and I'm aiming to buy a pound or two when it comes back in stock. That and Sutliff's 515RC-1.

    ***What Are You Smoking? March 2020***

    Haven't been able to smoke for a little bit over a week now as I'm in mandatory isolation after fleeing London for Singapore, but I've been fantasising about my next bowl to the point that I've got it ready to go five days in advance: 2017 McClelland Aurora in my Moretti chimney and lit with my...

    Carolina Red Flake w/2002 Perique

    That's a real issue with C&D Virginias: they're far too young when blended. The leaf processing that McClelland was renowned for died with that company, and I'm afraid we won't know VA like theirs again. However, I hear a couple of years on a tin of Union Square (manufactured by C&D) does...

    Carolina Red Flake w/2002 Perique

    To be honest, if I had a wall of Christmas Cheer I wouldn't buy Carolina Red Flake either!
