I'd had G.L. Pease Haddo's Delight on deck for opening for a month or two, so on an impulse I did it, and packed it in a Savinelli smooth slightly bent 122 pot, pretty version of the shape. The bouquet from the tin was spectacular, but so far the flavor is somewhat mundane. Will try it dryer and see if it blossoms. Sure smelled good. I'm a burley guy first, but I do appreciate a well constructed Va/Per. Russ' Fire Storm, I went through that tin in record time.
Now smoking Edgeworth Slices in a straight sandblasted pre-transition Barling Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. black billiard with a silver band and a black ebonite military bit tapered stem. Watching It All Came True starring Bogart.
Just finishing this bowl of P&W Nut Brown Burley in a 2016 PSF POY quarter bend black sandblasted Vermont Freehand egg with an aluminum band and a tortoise shell colored acrylic saddle stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink.
Part way through this bowl of year 2014 Saint James Flake in a smooth straight 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.
