Sitting here this AM with my cup of Joe, black of course, and wondering what I should smoke, I normally like to Smoke Germains Plumcake Mixture, but I am out at the moment, so I was wondering other than the obvious EMP,
what yoiunz all like to smoke in the AM? They don't necessarily have to be marketed towards an early morning smoke
and go......

My early morning go-to's are OGS, BBF, HV. I like to start off with something light and they fit the bill just fine.


Cheers,

RR

Funny you should ask, since I'm just waking up here. Finishing off last night's bowl of Old Gowrie in a Charatan.

First of all Good Morning. I've been smoking Dunhill Elizabethan mixture in the morning lately but I've been known to enjoy a mild English blend as well.

If I smoke a pipe I want something stout, preferably with Latakia. I've also been known to indulge in Black Irish X first thing in the morning.

If I smoke a cigar I want something mild with a small ring gauge. Something like a Candela, Connecticut, or Cameroon.

I was going to go with a little GL Pease Union Square this morning. Figured a nice mellow, sweet Sunday morning smoke is just what the doctor ordered.

I usually smoke a VA or Va/Per in the morning. I also like the coins such as LBF and SRS first thing. I love the light flavors that go well with my coffee. I find that I can enjoy the more subtle flavors with a fresh palate first thing.

I tend to prefer something somewhat unflavored (as opposed to something sweet or a Lakeland or Latakia-rich) in the mornings: Brown Flake (or Stonehaven when I can get it) or something dark fired/Kentucky oriented, or a mild oriental or VAper.

I like something with some Vitamin N to help me get going. Kendal Kentucky or Dark Bird's Eye usually fit the bill.

I guess it depends on the morning. Today I was up at 4 AM reading the Office, reviewing the sermon, getting my ducks in a row, etc. I was smoking ODF. After a largish bowl of ODF, I switched to PS Cube Cut, and I was still smoking that as I drove to church..

I really like my Orlik GS in the morning and lately a nice peppery va/per like Beacon Extra. Enjoy this quite a bit with a strong cup of joe!

My first-of-the-day is always Embarcadero in a dedicated MM Fifth Avenue cob, with a nine-ounce glass of thick black coffee. I'll commonly follow that with Union Square, MVF, or HV, or occasionally with Laurel Heights, Cairo, or some DGT'ed BBF or FVF, in one of my several Brebbia MPB Sailing black sandblasted straight billiards, to ramp up my respectability before I face the world.

For some reason BL Pease Meridian does it for my morning smoke. To be up at 7:00 am, looking out over the desert with the sun coming up and enjoying a bowl of meridian is just a great feeling.

If I smoke in the morning, which I usually only do on weekends, I too prefer something light. Red Rapparee is a great morning Latakia. I also enjoy H&H Virginia Spice as an early smoke. Harry, have you tried H&H Darbyshire? If you like Plumcake you might enjoy it.
