Finishing up a bowl of Cobblestone Black Coffee I received from Brunello a few months ago and had never opened. Really mild sweet tobacco. Smoked about half the bowl last night but had to give up and vacate the patio as I was losing the battle with the gnats, lol.
It’s very humid here right now. I’m dying! Sitting poolside, watching my fiancé swim, while I have some 2011 GLP Triple Play in a cool old Hilson Stronghold I bought on eBay over a decade ago. View attachment 1667
Starting my day with a Butz-Choquin pipe filled with Sutliff Creme brulee. I have been craving a good cigar lately. Sadly, Most of the B&M shops here in NY are catering to the weed heads so the selection is very limited and the prices are outrageous.
I just finished sanitizing/cleaning my E-bay Peterson Kilarney 80S pipe,This one was a real challenge,The bowl itself took a lot of reaming,the amount of cake in there was insane and smelled pretty bad.God knows what this guy smoked.
Luckily the salt treatment worked great.The mouthpiece was totally clogged,even after a day in the oxyclean,I could barely get a bristled pipe cleaner in it ! I finally gave in and soaked it in alcohol for three hours and finally got it cleared and clean. I lost the coloring on the Peterson logo in the alcohol process,but now it`s a smokable pipe. I don`t understand why a person would buy a pretty nice pipe and let it get in this condition? Luckily I paid damn near nothing for it,so I am not complaining. Now enjoying this Pete with some Creme Brulee!
Ran low on my stash of Urban Cowboy so half a bowl topped off with Hobbits Weed. Since I like both of these might try a 50/50 mix. Could call it Cowboy Weed but not sure I like the connotation, lol. Maybe Urban Hobbit?
Our temps have really subsided from that forecasted; we've even had more rain!! This beautiful, cool (75F) morning started with 10-yr-old GLP Union Square in a Kaywoodie Shellcraft brandy followed by 3-yr-old DH Dark Flake (dang, I love this stuff!!) in a Pete diamond-shanked Shamrock Natural brandy. Dark, dark, strong coffee (beans roasted yesterday!) to accompany! FTRPLT
Had some Cobblestone Chess Queen in my wdc Wellington last night while fishing. I don't think I have ever seen tobacco that wet right out of the tin. A half hour of drying (admittedly in humid weather) and it was still very wet
