Just finished some Rimboche AB in a cob. My first go with this stuff. Quite good, I think, but I would have totally flunked a blind review. I was really hard pressed to pick out any of the components.
I haven't smoked a ton of D&R stuff, but I've liked everything I've tried, and I think they deserve a little more attention than they get. None of it is knock your socks off type stuff, but it's impressive in its own way. Dead simple, no nonsense tobacco. I look forward to finishing this tub, and I wouldn't be surprised if more finds its way into the cellar.

Just finished the after dinner bowl of HH Acadian Perique in a re-stemmed Grabow Lark. I tried this mixture in a bigger pipe and it just tasted muddled. This is the first tobacco I've tried that tastes noticeably different in different-sized bowls.
All this talk of Mr. Eastwood's "spaghetti" Westerns makes me want to recommend the original "The Magnificent Seven". Had the pleasure of watching it and "Singin' in the Rain" over the weekend.
Been catching up on my C.S. Lewis over the weekend, double-diving into The Abolition of Man and Imagination and Reason. I didn't know until recently that he was a WWI veteran & contemporary of J.R.R. Tolkien. My mind has been so numbed by contemporary fiction that I find myself having to take in Lewis's essays a sip at a time, but it is invigorating.
Coffee and ice water alongside.

Enjoyed a tasty Jazz apple and am part way through this bowl of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed Match in a very much appreciated 1979 brown, slight bend grain etched flat front Stanwell Rego 969-48 (09) with a black vulcanite stem. I'll likely finish my smoking day with this bowl. Reading Giddins' book on Bing and am down the home stretch, headed for home on this tome. I'll likely place first tomorrow, though.

Woke up to find my cell would not turn on. Thought I had some malware, but found a couple of suggestions online and got it back on. It was a little discouraging to have the screen lit up with the battery icon saying 100%, but it wouldn't boot. Did manage to start a cob mod by Norm filled with Storm Front and pour a cup of coffee while I was fiddling around with it. Whew.
