Just finished smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 2014 Basil Meadows smooth slight bend squashed tomato with an aluminum band and a black pearl acrylic stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink.

Now smoking D&R Three Sails in a 1980s straight smooth Big Ben pot with a nickel band and a black vulcanite stem. This will get me to dinner time.

Relaxing after a wonderful parmasean chicken dinner with a bowl of C&D Blue Ridge in a much cherished smooth straight grain three quarter bend 1979 Becker M 4 heart brandy with a black acrylic stem. Watching the Braves-Cards game.

I don't know what it is about Esoterica blends, but I've yet to try one that I didn't like. Admittedly, the Stonehaven needed a little more dryin out than I gave it the first try, but it is a great smoke.
I absolutely love Penzance but a very close second for me is Margate. I usually have a bowl of it at least once a week.
Tonight, while sittin here in the mancave I caught myself lookin up @ the Esoterica shelf and decided to try the Pembroke sittin up there callin my name. :)
This is a great smoke. Very rich and creamy. Noticeably spicier than Margate, which I understand is very similar minus the Cognac topping added to Pembroke.
I'm smokin it in my Sav 320KS Author (my Margate Briar).
Sippin on 1792 & water.

A quarter of the way through this bowl of C&D String Duster in a 2002 IMP smooth full bend egg shaped meer with a black acrylic stem. Watching Thunderball, though jealous Suzy keeps insisting that she's prettier than the Bond women.
