On Thursday and Friday of last week I recieved a small package in each day's mail that I had not ordered. The first was from Kaiser and contained a 50g tin of Stanell's Melange, a MM Original cob and one of those really fancy SS w/ wood slab sides pipe tamper/tool !!! The next was from Rob_N_Misu whos sent a 50g tin of Dans Milonga,a MMOriginal Cob and a pckt. of Long's clnrs. This was so "from out there" that I really did not know what to say
These are two Aro's which I have wanted to try but were not in my current fixed income budget to buy! And I was not planning to but any more pipes, whether Cobs or Briars. And the pipe tool is just SOOOOO nice !! ( I've only used it twice as it is just TOOO nice to get ashes on
so I am still using my old Peterson pipe nail I've had all these years!) I've smoked BOTH "bacs in the Cobs sent me and find both to be nice, nice reall tobacco type of Aro's of which I find the Milonga being my prefered. They both WILL BITE as they are Va based blends if smoked to hard with the Milonga being the smoothest of the two!
These WONDERFUL giftd makes me realize just what a wonderful bunch of folks we have here and I just want to say a public THANK YOU to their generousity! We really ARE brothers
