Courtesy of my good friend miket, who knows of my affinity for perique & flakes, I'm burning a blend I'd never heard of, Low Country Waccamaw. Nice bright base, some reds, & a touch of perique, all nicely pressed into a flake, in an old-school (as in, pre-Cadogan) !unsmoked! Comoy Golden Grain 3/4 bent. Nice mellow yet excellently flavorful smoke with a decent room note. Reeeealllly smooth! Won't replace BF, my various aros, or 3 Nuns, but a VERY nice smoke. Thanks jes' bookoodles, Mike! I really owe you on this one!
Relaxing after a wonderful chili and cheese dinner and am part way through this bowl of Esoterica Dunbar in a smooth straight late ‘50s, early 1960s Lane era Charatan Selected 43 Dublin with a black vulcanite double comfort stem. This pipe was formerly owned by actor William Conrad, too! My second Conrad pipe. A slice of Boston creme pie will interrupt this smoke. Enjoying a visit with an old friend.
Part way through this bowl of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a late '80s, early 90s small bend medium brown smooth, unbranded Bjarne pot with a couple small rusticated spots, an amber colored acrylic ferrule and tapered stem in the military mount style. Phone chatting about pipe tobacco.
