4248 - Dunhill Ready Rubbed in a small sandblasted billiard this AM

4249 - CAO Cherry in a small clay while compiling Jake's bomb list - thanks, buddy! This is a nice change of pace, I don't smoke a ton of aromatics. This is really a quality flavored tobacco. The more of a dark, tart cherry than the usual super sweet stuff you usually get from a cherry blend.

I gotta agree. I almost asked if you smoked any or not. Figured I’d just send you some. I like it just sometimes

I maybe sent you some eileens dream. It’s a good aromatic.

4250 davidoff flake medalion. Dig it. I’ll probably get another can of this at some point

^ smoke that **** till it won't hold tobacco anymore!

Five Brothers in a smooth, stout pot shaped Dublin.

It's a very fine cut shag tobacco with "birdseye" stem pieces mixed in. Never seen that before. Nutty and mild flavor with a good nic hit. Waking me up this morning! Cheers, Jake!

^ I like the strength of that stuff. It’s smooth too. Kinda dig it on occasion. I mix it with some of the other stuff at times. If you have a blend that doesn’t want to burn well. It usually gets things going also. It’s stupid cheap on cbid

^^^ nice, glad you like it, Jake. I try to have a straight black Cavendish tobacco on hand at all times. First blend I smoked was Lane BCA (Black Cavendish Aromatic). I don't smoke it often, but there's nothing like it when you want something smooth and easy going.

You have schooled me a bit on some pipe tobacco sir!^^^
I tried to buy some frog Morton a year back or so. Pretty stoked you sent that. I almost don’t wanna open it. Might rest that whole can for a little while. Super cool gift man
👍 I didn’t even care which blend it was. Just wanted some. Now a have a can. Preciate!

Number correction

4274 - My # 2 Black mix in a small briar


I've found Lane BCA to be very smooth, but not tasty so I mix it with Smokers Pride and I get a tastier smooth smoke- that's my # 2.

I know I f##ck'd it all up.

4255 (maybe) Davidoff Flake Medallion in a small billiard with bamboo shank. I've had a couple similar tobaccos - PS Bullseye Flake and Comoy #4 - I think this is better than either! Gonna have to pick some of this up. Thanks for the sample, Jake!

4256 - Dark Burley with PS Cube Cut. Had a sample of straight dark Burley, tasted like smoking unsweetened dark chocolate. Mixed in some cube cut to add some sweetness. Been sitting in a jar for 5 or 6 months. Not bad.

4259 - had a bowl of Carter Hall to test my earlier comparison. The two blends have a very similar flavor profile. Cater Hall is much milder however, Robo Burlesque is kind of an amped up version.

4260 - SPC Mississippi River SR. Jake sent me one of the corners of a block of this pressed tobacco. I sliced it up into a cube cut for ease of loading without completely rubbing it out. This is good stuff! Really enjoying this first bowl. I'm always afraid English blends are going to be too Latakia heavy. Not the case with this one. the Latakia is there providing some sweet smokiness, but it plays a supporting role. It the complex blend of Virginia, Perique, Orientals that really take a front seat.

Thanks for sharing this with me, Jake!

Pulls moisture out of the smoke. I find that it helps a lot with certain aromatics. It depends on the blend - some are too light and you lose the flavor. Others need it and are less muddled, more nuanced when smoked in a filter pipe. I came to this realization after a conversation with an American pipemaker who lived in France for a while. Filter pipes are much more common in Europe and so are the type of heavy aromatics that benefit from them. He said after he realized that he went back and tried a bunch of blends that he'd completely written off and found that he actually enjoyed them in a filtered pipe. Eileen's Dream is made by Scandinavian Tobacco Group - it's a Danish style aromatic. Americans tend to try and let this type of blend dry out some. In Europe, they just use a filter pipe.

I've also found that I frequently get some tongue bite from blends that have a high proportion of Bright VA, like PS Luxury Twist Flake - filter takes that away.
