I don't know what will be the last one for this year, but the first one of 2019 will be three year old Stonehaven. I always open something special for the New Year. Last two years, it was the old VaPer Three Nuns.
Last bowl was Sutliff Virginia Slices this afternoon to end 2018. I won't be smoking tonight and probably wont smoke tomorrow either. First smoke of 2019...who knows, that won't be till Wednesday morning. Probably PS Luxury Navy Flake or a nice Burley blend with coffee.
HU Balkan Passion is looking like it will be my final bowl for 2018, smoking it now. First bowl for 2019 will be a McClelland VA flake- McC’s VA’s were probably 50% of what I smoked prior to their close and very little since the close. I’ve got plenty socked away but only now it seems like I can get back to enjoying them, even knowing they’ll never be replaced.
My last smoke was Sir Walter Raleigh in my Dr Grabow Grand Duke bent Dublin/Billiard thingie and I think my first smoke in the morning will be a simple, strait forward bowl of Carter Hall in my MM Natural Morgan. Happy new year PSD.
Last smoke of 2018 was Haunted Bookshop. Haven't decided what I'll smoke tomorrow. Part of me says Irish Flake, mostly because I usually have IF on my Tuesdays and Fridays after work, but then I think I may break out some of the last of my London Mixture... I'll see what I'm in the mood for when the time arrives. Most likely will be something completely different.
I figured my last bowl was going to be EMP, but I ended up sneaking in a couple bowls yesterday of my own blend (that turned out to be fabulous).
Not positive on the first bowl. It will probably be McM 40th anniversary or Dunhill Flake, however I have an unopened tin of FM On The Town which I have never smoked. First bowl might be a good time for that . . .
Mine was a nice bowl of Crooner, I don't often reach for a deer tongue blend, but it is one that keeps the house more pleased than my favorites and I had been listening to Der Bingle anyway so it fit...one day I want a Bing pipe to dedicate to Crooner
