Bowl of Boswell and a glass of Bourbon County Stout on tap! Making of a good night.

I load up before smoking too, not days, but hours. I also like to let the bowl rest and die after the first light. And I've been taking to paper drying the moister tobaccos I've been trying, if I don't, they make noise and don't burn well.

Agreed. PA is good stuff. It was the first pouch I bought when I decided to give pipe smoking a try again. Followed by Captain Black Royal, which I also liked a lot. To me, pipe tobacco has been like cigars in the sense that I like many different kinds. I love the Virginia tobacco so far, it's a nice mellow smoke and great for anytime, but I also love things like Burly and latakia heavy blends. I'm a total n00b when it comes to pipes though.

Ha! Nice, foggy night in the Windy, I'd assume? Can't beat that. We had a (rare) day like that here today. Couldn't see the tops of the buildings and it rained. Reminded me of home.

I'm enjoying a beverage with my English tobacco tonight. A very enjoyable combination.

Wish you guys could stop by the house, pull a beer from the kegerator (oops that will have to wait until late November) and we all hang out smoking and drinking a few homebrews.

Sometimes I wish my dad wasn't so straight laced. Doesn't drink, or smoke. I'm glad he's so healthy, but at times I'd love to show him some of my brews and enjoy a pipe.

That would be fun Dan.

I've been uber lazy about brewing over the last year. All this pipe smoking is getting me in the mood to brew again. Nothing like the smell of a good pipe and boiling malt filling the room.

Even though I don't smoke anymore, I just had a vision of having a homebrew and a pipe at Dan's house, and suddenly some of the stress of my New York job dissipated.

Out of respect I'd hide the pipe behind my back when jan was in the room.

The man can be taught.

Just won a tobacco PIF over at B&B. I wonder what kind of goodies I'm going to get.

I'm also intrigued by this Virginia No. 1. I'll have to stop into Iwan Ries and pick some up tomorrow.

Full Virginia Flake from Samuel Gawith has the highest rating and is the most reviewed.
