Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding Special Reserve in a Charatan calabash shape Meerschaum.

Loaded the pipe 24 hours earlier, larger pieces on bottom, kindling on top - probably the best enjoyment I've had from this blend so far. Almost makes the 25 bucks seem worthwhile (but the regular Plum Pudding is the better value IMO).

Sister pipes (Ropp Vintage Belge) in a side by side comparison with Penny Farthing out on the patio. Loving this tobacco, especially in these pipes. One pipe has a dark horn stem, the other two toned. After this little experiment, I'm naming them after twin girls I knew in Jr. High. The dark stemmed one is named Tammy, sultry like the girl I knew. This pipe brought out darker, rich flavors. The other pipe is named Jamie, who was more out going and vivacious. Taste profiles in this pipe were more grassy with balsam undertones. Needless to say, both pipes will dance now with Penny Farthing. Easy to remember what pipe is dedicated to which tobacco!

Cowboy Coffee and a sipping shot of honey whiskey on the side.

Now, off to spend News Eve with my wife via Zoom as she is in India.

Happy New Years folks!

A misty fog outside the window... just enjoyed a concoction I call Inglorious Bastard in a Pioneer Gourd Calabash. The room note is like roasted chestnuts. Now, to decide what's for later in the evening . . .

Following left overs from the culinary extravaganza I served today, sat down with a bowl of C&D Derringer in a Ropp Vintage Cutty. Cowboy Coffee on the side. Sweet, sublime Virginia goodness.

Received my order from country squire today. Had a hard time deciding which to try first. But with all the accolades on here went with the Rivendell in the Pete Rosslare. I see what you guys mean about keeping the "tobacco" taste in an aromatic. Will try figgy pudding tomorrow.

Couldn't wait. Wife says dinner won't be ready for another 45 min. So, half bowl of figgy pudding in a vintage Hilson flame grain volcano. Deep red cabernet on the side. In my garage nook as it's already 40 outside.

After dinner smoke. Decided to try the cowboy coffee in a MM country gentlemen. I LIKE this stuff. Earl gray on the side. Can't wait to try this with dark roast coffee in the morning. Will be my first bowl tomorrow.
