A gift I received in yesterday's mail, about 5 oz. of Strang from a friend in Europe :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
In my opinion, the BEST pipe tobacco I've ever had.
Strang ( I prepare some rubbed out and small coin cuts. I do layers when filling my pipe for best results ) have not had this wonderful tobacco in some time!
Pipe of choice: Ardor Mercurio Bent Egg, perfect pipe for this tobacco
So, what can you smoke after really enjoying a bowl full of Strang in comparison? NOTHING.... :bounce: :bounce:
So therefore it must be a dessert tobacco
5 year aged Molto Dolce in my Weber carved/rusticated chubby Rhodesian. I restored this beauty last year. Looks like a Tom Howard or Tracy Mincer, why you might ask??? Most likely because they all came from the same factory out of New Jersey. Nice chunk of briar :cheers: :cheers:
Temple Bar in my fully restored Kaywoodie hand carved/rusticated Chubby Pot. Perfect pipe for this blend. After rubbing enough for a pipe full out I let it air dry in a small tray for 20 minutes. This blend will definitely improve with some age.
About a third of the way through this bowl of Paul’s Amphora Match in a 2002 IMP smooth full bend egg shaped meer with a black acrylic stem. Ice water and bergs is my evening drink. Watching the Cubs-Dodgers game.
