Hellos to all.
I don't smoke tobacco to often these days but lately it as been calling to me...
The other week,
I picked up some american spirit red pouch to smoke hits off of in a small glass pipe.
I liked this smoke. It gives a strong buzz and burns with animation. Unfortunately, the cigarette rolling friends quickly mooched all my baccy.
So I decided my next pickup would be something more choice. I knew I wanted some thing high in vitamin N, so I ordered a tin of Brown #4 rope/twist. I wanted to pickup a log of mapacho/rustica as well but I could not find a vendor who stocked it.
....the tin arrived and I struggled to pry it open with my fingers but to no avail. Finally I managed to break the vacuum seal by prying it open with a spoon. Woo
The dense roll of leaves smelled strongly of well, tobacco. No nonsense here - just some stanky tobacco.
A sherlock style of pipe is not something I had on hand. What I did have was a small glass pipe. I packed the pipe 'n' baccy in a bag and grabbed my flute then ambulated up the hill to get some ale from the store.
Having aqcuired the beer, I secured a park bench sittin' spot, sat, popped open the tin of brown number four and cracked an ale.
I picked some loose leaf bits out of the tin and ruffled them through a steel grinder. I say ruffled because the brown number four was to moist to grind very finely.
Lots of puffing and relighting and ale sipping flute noodling, later - color me impressed by the taste! A nice buzz from the puffing of too. An unpleasant tongue bite occurred. The small glass pipe is not optimal for smoking this way.
