First English burning right now. Boswell's Northwoods blend. Really nice, enjoying it quite a bit.

I did the same last Thursday, got a chance to pull out the Barling pack it with Kirsten's whiskey blend and see what I need to do next on my garage dry walling...a fine way to spend time thinking through a project.

Thank you very much, my friend. I've been slacking. Your beers are sitting, wrapped in bubble, on my kitchen table waiting for me to not forget them. I'll hit the PO on my way in tomorrow morning.

Those are usually the smokes I like best. Full bodied black and Burley's, they're always satisfying.

No worries Dan. I'm glad you like the tobacco. There was a reason it stuck out in my mind after 10 years!

Cheers!

Bad news... Shank on my churchwarden is cracked and growing. Going to have to give that pipe a rest until I can take it into the city for repair. Feels weird to pay at least 20 bucks if not more to repair a 60 dollar pipe though. It's the one I was planning on dedicating to English blends too so now have to take a hiatus.

Any of you guys dedicate pipes to blends? I want to but I also don't have enough pipes to do so and don't feel like dropping the cash to load up on more.

I've considered dedicating pipes to blends but, I've never gotten the "ghosting" that some talk about. Not even with the heavily cased blends.

Ordered:

The Persian Slipper - Sherlock Holmes sampler.
Froggy Went a Courtin - Frog Morton sampler
GL Pease - JackKnife Ready
GL Pease - Chelsea Morning
GL Pease - Westminster
Captain Black Sample pack.

I can tell when I switch over...I generally smoke the Kirsten's mariner blend, but when I grab something else it takes a few bowls of the mariner to get the flavor back in full.
