Ordered today some GQ (British blender based in Nottingham) some Clementines Nip and Rum and Honey. Should arrive tomorrow and these blends are a bid to extend my palate and tastebuds a little more. Also on order is a new lighter (inexpensive) and a new Falcon bowl.

The main tourist street in my mountain town is Cherry Street. While I've never been a fan of cherry tobacco, the guy opening the B&M I mentioned in the other thread, wants to make some kind of tobacco blend named after the street. I'm currently smoking the variation we are trying. I'm thinking less cherry tobacco in the blend, which seems silly considering, but this Very Cherry blend is strong stuff.

Smoking it again. It is a smooth blend, but I'm still not a fan of cherry baccy.

First Sam Gawith's Navy Flake in a Dunhill Black Briar (Love this stuff, pity the tin is dwindling)

Now Old Virginia Flake in a Mauro Armellini (I swear it has vanilla in it, but it says unflavored...)

I tend to smoke aromatics in the fall and winter. I purchase tobacco by the tin, convert it to a really small Mason jar to keep it fresh, label the jar. This goes on for awhile (months) or at least it did. Finally I mixed all of those small Mason jars' contents into one quart size Mason jar, shook it up, and there you have it. It's pretty darn good, if you like aromatics.

Smoking the Heinz 57 (more like 6 or 7) in a large Ardor. And best of all I'm on the hunt for more "new" tins now. :lol:

Last night Carter Hall in a Savinelli Bent Brandy with Chamomile Tea and a Hemmingway short story to wind down. Just about right.

I'm tending toward a proper review of Sillems 1695 Councilor, but a few preliminary remarks.

Smoking it now in a group 3 pre-trans Barling billiard. Full perique but not a perique blend. Refined Virginias with the perique opened, which in my mind means something only similar to a large/larger amount than some other blends but which distinction I am currently not at liberty to make (I don't know what I mean. Escudo has a good quantity of Perique as well but I wouldn't call it "open":)). Fruity. Sour. Very complex. Lovely.

For those of you unacquainted with Sillems Commodore Flake, buy it today, if you can find it. Last I heard the distributor was out. A quantity of Latakia that is neither herbaceous nor smoky but very dark. Dark-Fired for oomph. Black Cavendish for smoothness. So tasty you think it's candy or topped. Has the same steamed-press profile as several of the recent HH MB blends.

DGT of PSLBF with a few years on it in "The Unmarked Billiard," and next is one of my own "hybrid" blends:

1:1:1 combo of C&D Kajun Kake, SG Kendal Plug, and early 80s MB Royal Twist, with a pinch of GH Kendal #7. Just threw it together, and it's been in the jar unopened for nearly three years! Should be interesting...

Well, Midnight Edit:

I got into talking about twists, and am going to make my next bowl some nicely-aged GH Sweet Coconut Twist, gifted to me by Jocose. I had tried it before he sent it to me, and my original purchase from 2010 might still be in the jar with his gift (gift is German for poison!), but I'll have to see. Forget how old he told me the stuff he sent me in 2012 was.

I'm actually a little scared about smoking my hybrid blend. I really did just throw it together because I was finishing a tin of KK and Royal Twist from the 80s at the same time, and added Kendal plug for quality, and a pinch of Kendal #7 for a kick. Will smoke the GHSCT first, then see what three years in the jar has done to my little experiment!

Another Edit: I took another look at the jar Jocose gave me of Coconut Twist, and he jarred it in Jan-2009, so it is well over 7 years old, and very nice! Probably a year older than the bit I already had. The sort of thing you can take a couple puffs on at a time over hours...
