I'm a few minutes early on the East Coast, but I'll start off the month of August with D&R A.B. Rimboche in a smooth straight pre-transition Barling 313 T.V.F. EXEXEL pot with a black ebonite stem. I'm part way through this bowl already. Have enough left for a bowl or so.

A third of the way through this bowl of Rich Dark Flake in a 1984 black sandblasted straight Dunhill Shell 4103 Billiard with a black vulcanite stem. This will finish the sample.

Just finished a nice big bowl of Black Frigate in my Brebbia Lido; An excellent nightcap.
@JimInks

I couldn't help but notice that your profile pic resembles the man on the label for Edward G. Robinson(presumably Edward G. Robinson himself). If so, is that a particular favourite blend of yours?
Regards,
Justin

Phantomwolf: yes, it is. Robinson is one on my favorite actors, too. I enjoy the blend very much, and if you want a mild aromatic, you should try it. I have a long history with this blend, and if you're interested in hearing about it, listen to part two of my interview with Brian Levine:

Couldn't sleep, and I hate to waste time, so I'm smoking Old Colonial in a medium bend beater 1979 Aalborg natural freehand made by Nording with a black vulcanite stem. Watching Wanted: Dead or Alive.

Now smoking 1970s Heine's Blend in a 1977 straight black rusticated Sir Brent billiard with a silver band repair and a brown pearl grey acrylic stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Almost time for baseball.
