Peterson 999 is one of their standard shapes, one of the oldest if memory serves me correctly. Rocky Donegal is one of their rusticated finishes... some would call it a black stain with red in the deep crevices of the rustication. The last few years of the Rocky line are way too uniform and patterned, the older ones are where my fascination lies. Random, deep, choppy chunks of pitting, very befitting of the "Rocky" name.

I found a neat explanation / photo site that shows a lot of different shapes. Very handsome looking and tempting. As I sat trying to evaluate my motive in wanting one, I realized it was primarily because they are such a handsome looking pipe. Visually very appealing. And. . . did I say tempting? :lol:

While I tend to lean towards the billiard shape in what I most often smoke, the 999 has a hold on me. So much so I just bought one from a fellow CPSer in their Shannon finish, and I own a Pre-Republic 999 with beautiful grain and a perfectly aged silver band. I think I have another in a box somewhere, but that I can't be certain of.

It's not bad at alll. In "The Unmarked Billiard."

EDIT: Getting halfway through the bowl, and actually, it's excellent for something just thrown together. Really melded with three years in the jar, though I can still taste that aged MB Roll Cake...

I guess next will be either CC 2004, GH Kendal Flake, more GHSCT, or an American Spirit Perique (black pack) cigarette. Still trying to kick the dang things, and roll my own when I want one. Getting back on CPS has helped, but still, it's my favorite cigarette, and hard to resist. :oops:

Currently Trout Stream in a Paykoc Meerschaum bent billiard. Thought it was a dull blend, but really took off in the meerschaum.

SG FVF in an IMP meer

folded up a flake and stuffed it in, crushed down the top below the rim and added a few loose pieces on top. Needed some re-lights but smoked nice and cool

This stuff, but half-and-half with C&D Pirate Kake because of that thread, which gives this dump blend about a 30% Latakia content, in the ugly Whitehall. Actually pretty good...

...no, excellent. I'll mix up some more! :D

GH SCT in an old Lexington billiard. Next up: SG Kendal Flake with a touch of blending Perique in The Unknown Handcarved.

Getting ready to order Molto Dulce. Thinking Orlik's Mellow mixture will be added to the order. Haven't tried either so I will see.

Will be smoking Seattle Plum Pudding, after breakfast. Which pipe, is yet to be determined.

I have been alternating between Captain Black White and Captain Black Dark after a recent bulk purchase... Enjoying both, and it appears the bulk versions are much "drier" than the pouches... I'm very pleased.

I could come up with a joke based on that, but probably would get me banned from CPS. :P

McClelland CC 2004 right now in my Lexington, and a bit later, GH Rich Dark Honeydew. It's been undisturbed in a jelly jar for almost four years, and I have neglected to smoke it much. Kind of strange, since I love GH! Will be interesting to see how it strikes me after all this time. Here was my review from January 2012:


Just had a bowl of this (I've had a few) in a Yello-Bole I just found out is probably from the early to mid 30s. This to me is a sign from above that it's time to review. True, I have not had all that many smokes of this recently aquired weed, but it's pretty straightforward. Nice thin ribbon, almost a shag. They really did mean that about a "small amount of broken flake;" I just noticed it while breaking out this last bowl, and until I got in here and read that description, thought the literally one piece I found had just made it in by accident!

Not a Lakeland floral topping. Almost a MacBaren-type topping, but it smokes differently than a MacBaren. I can tell it's GH. A little sweeter, perhaps. Honeydew, not just honey! Burns consistently throughout the bowl, tastes about the same all the way, no matter what the smoking rate, though best sipped, like most things. I do get the urge to puff a bit with tobaccos like this, though. No harm results to my tongue with Rich Dark Honeydew. The name isn't quite right: it's mainly light brown, with some darker flecks. Rich, but not strong or all that complex. No problem; nice smoke I will enjoy going to quite often.
