I have a Master Bulldog to DGT, with GH Bright CR flake jarred almost exactly four years ago to which I added a pinch of Perique and a pinch of GH Kendal #7. It's a good off-the-cuff blend.

I am trying to get back into my pipe smoking like I was three years ago. I have kept it up, but not like then. I certainly have plenty to smoke, though I have not purchased any pipe tobacco for a while. My house is like a mini tobacconist's establishment, and I need to find a way to thin out. Maybe this year I'll send out some CPS Christmas care packages...

On my desk now I have that Bright CR, which has some nice crystals on it by now, the Kendal #7 and Blending Perique, half a jelly jar of Christmas Cheer 2004 (nice stuff), and some Rattray Marlin Flake that is about three years old. What I really need to work on are those 46 (yes I counted) jelly jars I have from opening too many tins, some of which are pretty old by now. Jelly jars don't keep as well as the big jars, though the ones I have smoked recently seem fine.
Still working on these for right now...

You really must come around more. I've always enjoyed your presence.

Back on topic, I believe Sail Yellow is my answer to all three clauses of the question.

On the way home tonight I will be smoking some Boswell's 1980 flake. I'm really starting to like this tobacco.

Currently smoking Boswells' Majestic 586 in a Pre-Republic Peterson 999.
It's not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body. --Colton

Another Saturday working at Riegel's Pipe & Tobacco. First bowl, their Norway's Neighbor in my Peterson clay system #12 pipe, made in their London factory, now closed. I think in 1959 so the clays were probably produced during the briar shortage in WWII.

Last night I had a bowl of Blue Diamond in the CPS Dad's Pipe, and then followed that with some EMP in a Canadian/lumberjack style Peterson, not sure the name or model.

My work blend is a 2/3 Sugar Barrel, 1/3 Walnut pouch blend (i.e., no scales or specificity, measured in handfuls). So that's what I smoke at work. Tonight being Thursday, I shall attempt to break some skeet. As that is a predominately male activity and many others smoke cigars, I shall bring along the Key Largo--the only blend that ever caused my father to ask whether I happened to be smoking rubber bands.
