I'm starting off the new year by opening a tin of year 2001 VaPer Three Nuns in a 1980s White Pipe straight lattice apple meerschaum with an acrylic yellow cream colored saddle stem. Happy New Year, everybody!
Almost half way through the last of my stash of Wilke No. 44 in a brown sandblasted medium bend 1970s Savinelli Autograph 5 freehand with a black vulcanite saddle stem. Didn't quite have enough to fill the bowl.
I began my New Year's Eve reveling with my Chicago pipe club friends, as I smoked "Dino's Mixture" in a 53 year old Cellini custom made prince from Chicago's Cellinin Pipe Shop/Victory Pipe Craftsmen. My beverage was Jack Daniel's Single Barrel/Barrel Proof (135 proof), neat. Happy New Year, my friends!
Last smoke of the day is year 2015 D&R A.P. Rimboche in a smooth dark brown, medium bend late 1950s Parker Super Bruyere 45 with a “4” in a circle billiard with a black vulcanite tapered stem. Doing a little kitchen cleaning to surprise m'lady when she wakes up in a few hours.
