Starting off the month with RO Perique Series Blend P-37 in a smooth straight early 1960s Lane era Charatan Executive Extra Large stretch apple with diagonal channel cuts on the lower right and left of the bowl along with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad.

Drexel VIII in a Falcon.





One flake, fold and stuffed is perfect for the standard Falcon pipe bowl. First impression is an uncased mild version of LNF. After about 10% into the bowl the Perique disappears. Nothing special. If the Perique hung around I'd prefer LNF over this. Since it disappears, I'd say Newminster 400 is more enjoyable.
Just my 2¢. YMMV
