I became a Grandfather today, for the first time!
The youngest of the three I have was the one to give birth, and so far the only grandchild, wow, reality hasn’t sunk in yet, but I still don’t feel old.
I was saving a tin and a pipe for another occasion I had in mind, but this is something to celebrate! So today I opened the tin, and gave the pipe it’s inaugural smoke, I bought the pipe October last year.
1974 Murray’s Erinmore Cube Cut, in a Bay Denmark Apple with a cumberland stem.
Erinmore flake was one of the first blends I smoked in the early 80s and this smells just like before, yes a Pineapple tin note and taste. When I opened the tin, it also has a slight perfume note to it, like Condor and Lakeland blends, and there is a faint taste of that with Pineapple, absolutely sublime.
I truly hope everyone is doing ok and well, as I am truly blessed today, not only from family, but all of you too, in this amazing place!
Be well everyone!
P.S. I was shocked, for a 48 year old tin, the moisture was perfect.
