Part way through this bowl of D&R Three Sails in a smooth straight late 1970s Charatan Special 4148DC Reg. No. 203573 pot with a black double comfort vulcanite stem. The rain stopped and the sun is out, so it's time to do some walking.
Enjoyed a tasty lunch, and am now smoking Ken Byron Ventures Pork Chops & Apple Sauce 2020 in a 1980s White Pipe straight lattice apple meerschaum with an acrylic yellow cream colored saddle stem. Have enough left for a bowl or so.
Just finished smoking a bowl of D.R Three Sails and it was just as I remembered Three Castles from the U.K and thank you Jim for taking the time to post me a sample and satisfy my curiosity. In a passing tribute to the forums clay pipe maven Dan I tested it in a German clay 'cutty' with vulcanite stem and aluminum band. It sure does burn hot despite packing it to the max and I found the tobacco very dry but a very pleasant smoke. After all that excitement I think I'll just barrel into some 6 year old Black Twist gifted to me from a very dear friend Sheldon from California and if you are reading this get in touch! As an after thought my pipe is the usual late 19th century/20th century meerschaum 'cutty' with amber stem and Philt Pad.
@halfdan just in case you fancy an evolutionary step up in 'Clay Pipe World' you might want to search these guys out from Germany as they make an excellent clay pipe with a modern stem, aluminum band which acts as a heat exchanger and makes it really easy to clean. Just a thought my friend......
Got a second set of walks in, had a bite of French vanilla ice cream, and am not far from finishing this bowl of year 2010 STG Schippers in a 1977 straight black rusticated Sir Brent 253 billiard with a silver band repair and a brown pearl grey acrylic tapered stem. Ice water and bergs is my drink on this hot and humid day.
