C&D Burley Flake #3 aged 3 years. This is a Burley in my opinion for the experienced pipe smoker. Has a tendency to get stronger mid way through and can bite if smoked to fast.

Pipe of choice: Aldo Velani full rusticated billiard pipe with a wide stem. Have not smoked this pipe in a few years, a bit heavy as I remember.

JIMINKS, your opinion on the tobacco???? Thanks, well appreciated.

KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

I like it. Here's my review:

It's only 4 stars if you like a very strong burley blend. It could knock you off your feet if you're a fast puffer, and you risk it burning a little harsh and ashy if you do. It won't hurt to have a little food in your stomach. Do all of that, and you'll be rewarded with a powerhouse burley with all the burley notes you've come to expect (a mild sharpness, lots of earth and nuttiness and some molasses), plus a light natural Virginia grass and citrusy sweetness to take the edge off. I think there's more than just a "dash of perique" in this blend, but it really helps make this a smoke worth having. The perique adds a decent spice and raisin hit. I don't recommend this to anyone who's inexperienced in pipe smoking. But if you've been around burleys for a while and need the big nic-hit, this could be your blend. Burns cool and clean at slightly less than a moderate pace, and needs a few relights, but the flavor remains consistent to the finish. Leaves little moisture in the bowl. Won't bite.

Thanks JimInks, you hit it dead on! I enjoyed it and have for a while, but it's a blend for an experienced pipe smoker or a novice that needs to sip this blend. It's worth it if you pace yourself.

Alex, nice pictures, thanks for sharing. Glad you get to relax after a hard day working!!  
Forgot to mention: I received 4 oz. of Ruins of Isengard as a gift last Father's Day, superb Latakia blend. Needs a bit of drying time. Worth the trip!!

Now smoking:

My Budd III in one of my MM Legend pipes.

KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Alex, I enjoy a good cob, one that can last a while without burning thru the side walls...lol. I think next year I might make a few, haven't in a while but not that difficult. I do put a piece of hardwood on the bottom inside the chamber, makes all the difference. Enjoy your blend. The shame of it, maybe no more of Just For Him blends after May of 2018, lets see if the Donald steps in?????

PS
I own 2 MM Country Gentleman pipes, made very well. The legends and Pride not so much...lol

1st try, War Horse Green in a Lorenzo Prince -- oddly, while I get a hint of the 'Condor'-like flavor, I actually find the overall flavors far less predominate than the cocoa in the Bar scratch I'll see how it goes as the tin progresses
