    Well hey there! Long time no post! :) I saw the suggestion in the 2016 thread and thought what a better way to get back on the horse but to kick off the 2017 thread. Some '96 McCranie's Red Ribbon for me tonight in a old GBD bulldog.

    Well it's about time we start contributing to this! Smoking some Peterson Sherlock Holmes from 2015 in an Ashton squat bulldog. This is a comfort smoke for me, the first pipe tobacco I ever smoked. Gets me all nostalgic and stuff. IMG_4894.JPG

    Either your pic is upside down or you live in Australia.

    I seriously need to break out my pipes again. Shame on me.

    I blame it on the iPhone ;) . That was the last pipe I smoked! Been reaching for cigars more and more.

    Some HU Director's Cut in the BST strawberry wood shape "124", taken from an old Dunhill catalog from the 1920s.

    I've taken a brief soirée into pipe smoking again. I purchased a bag of pipe tobacco from our good friend Johnny O as that seems to be my go-to recently in cigars, and I also purchased a tin of the dunhill morning blend that I've seen others smoke. I have two pipes as not to mix the wrong type of tobacco in the wrong pipe.

    I'm finally starting to figure out how to get the pipe lit correctly after a youtube video or two and a lot of trial and error. The fact that some of my pipe tobacco is clipped cigar ends actually has worked well. I can push the whole circular end into the pipe and end up with a really well packed pipe with a good draw and little to no tongue bite. The bowl also has been remaining warm but not hot to the touch.

    Still like my cigars better but I need to give pipe tobacco another shot. The Dunhill blend will be my weekend project -- trying to smoke that correctly. And I did get a house flake from my local pipe shop which I disliked the first time around but hopefully will try this weekend as well.

    Who knows. :)

    How's the Johnny-O blend? I might have to grab some next time I place an order.

    Just found some vintage Flying Dutchman at an estate sale, sealed and ready to smoke. The test pinch was quite enjoyable.

    Agree with that sentiment. Threw a little Embarcadero in my Drew Estate Tradesman on this cool evening. Almost feels like early fall!

    Stonehenge Flake in a 1948 Dunhill Shell 53 F/T. Folded and stuffed, then left the pipe out for 24 hours (got pulled away from it last night). Firing it up now, and it's smoking wonderfully. Stonehenge ships a little wet.

    Smoking one of my favorite mixtures; Lane Limited BCA, Peter Stokkebye Nougat and a dash of perique.

    Been burning through a lot of Haunted Bookshop lately, breaking in a few pipes. Tonight, HB in a 1950 Dunhill Root Briar, a straight apple shape 254. Long stem, thick shank, ample walled pipe with straight grain all around. Working on the breath smoking technique and my tongue is better for it!
