Now smoking from a freshly opened tin of year 2012 Dan Tobacco Hamborger Veermaster in a smooth straight brown 1950 Dunhill 48 bulldog group 4 root briar with a black vulcanite fish tail saddle stem. A good friend gifted me the tin today. Ice water and bergs is my drink.
Tonite I'm finishing up on some strawberry delight I picked up from a local cigar shop and on deck is some plum pudding, both pipes I bought a year ago, both with the name La Rocca out of Italy. I don't know much about the company but decent pipes, the rusticated pipe gurgles a bit as the tenon is somewhat short creating a chamber in the mortise. It's not a daily smoker so it gets a rest period between bowls.
Another chilly and windy day, so a few more puffs of Sutliff ERR Match in the cob, now and then. Despite the tobacco being fairly dry by this point, I still had trouble keeping it going, and all of the relights were tough on my mouth, so I didn't persist for too long at a time. I couldn't complain about the taste, though!
