Last of my Haunted Bookshop in the Stublin.

 

Haunted Bookshop is a bit too strong for us from the pipe so we tend to roll it into cigs.  We remember we bought ourselves some pre-rolled cigarette-tubes and a cheap cigarette injector awhile back.  Still to this day, we end up making 3-4 RYO cigarettes each day from quality pipe tobaccos and bring them to work with us so we can smoke them on our breaks.  Brebbia Balkan and G.L. Pease's Charing Cross smoke well enough as cigs.  Certain pipe tobaccos, as you can image don't pack well (straight Virginia's and cakes) due to the moisture level of the tobacco itself.  As long as the tobacco is a ribbon cut, or finely cut, and is moderately dry, it'll generally pack well.  Packing cigarettes is pretty fun (and quite calming), too, and has become a small little hobby of ours.  We tell people we're primarily a pipe smoker, but they always see us smoke cigarettes (usually 3 or 4 in one sitting).  They must think we have one hell of a nicotine tolerance, even though we have next to none. :dead:  We guess that's the difference between actual tobacco and whatever the hell else it is that drugstores and gas-stations tend to sell.

Rolling some of C&D's Haunted Bookshop and Atlus Balkan into cigs.  Had a few bowls of each from the pipe beforehand.  Nowhere near as strong as we remember in the nicotine category.  Still nice and spicy (if a little one-dimensional).  Same thing happened to us with their Billy Budd (ah, more literary references :clap:).  We remember Billy Budd overpowering us with vitamin N quite easily; now, not as much.  Could be a difference in their bulk versus tinned versions.  Maybe the tinned versions have aged longer, and, thus, mellowed out more?  That, or our nicotine tolerance has grown past the stage of a neophyte.  Not a bad buy either way.

GW Rum Flake in a Capt. Warren by Carlo Volpe. A rather strong tobacco, to be smoked slowly and leisurely.

We're still waiting on a few more tins in the mail: McClelland's Blackwoods Flake and their Tudor Castle.  Also, snagged some Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake since it was finally back in stock.  Nothing better than sipping on straight Virginia tobaccos come Fall season.

 

Drinking a Great Lakes Oktoberfest and watching some Dark Souls.

Coffee and Tudor Castle. :heart:   Forgot how good this stuff was.  Nice citrus notes and sweetness from the Virginias.  Perique adds just enough black pepper spice; and the Turkish tobacco gives it a pleasant cinnamon presence, too.  Excellent smoke.  Will be buying some more soon.

McClelland's Blackwoods Flake. :heart:   A tasty straight Virginia with a nice amount of sweetness to it.  Slight tang with a hint of black pepper in the background to boot.  Like most Virginias, there are nice, subtle complexities to savor.  A keeper for any piper's collection.

McClelland's Scottish Woods.  :heart:  Very nice mild blend.  Tart (but refreshing) citrus flavors from the Virginias, but with a backing sweetness.  Latakia lingers in the aftertaste, too, sprinkled with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg-flavored spice from the Turkish tobacco.  Easily an all-day smoke for sure.

Enjoying a glass of whisky on the rocks and a bowl of Full Virginia Flake while watching some pipe-smokers on YouTube talk.  The tobacco is quite nice, but more subtle than we remember.  Sweet bready notes with a hint of spice.  Make to sure to rub this out right and let it dry some time before consuming; otherwise, you'll find yourself in tongue-bite city.

Ordered a couple new briars (will have 7 in total soon, one for each day of the week).  Also ordered some Balkan Sasieni; My Mixture 965; G.L. Pease Odyssey; Mac Baren HH Latakia Flake; and Bell's Three Nuns.  Smoking more of McClelland's Tudor Castle with a pint of Oktoberfest beer. :thumbup:
