I plan on smoking some Dunhill 965 tonight, probably in an Irwin or a small Savinelli, around a bonfire.

And then starting tomorrow morning off with No Bite in my, "Butts Choking".

Leave it to the French. When buying a pipe (or anything, really) and especially when ordering food at a restaurant, I do not purchase/order anything with a name I would be embarrassed to say out loud.

Dunhill Early Morning Pipe in a Dunhill Bruyere Panel with a friend after a Labor Day Breakfast Cook-Out. A nice time.

Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed a bit of GLPs Maltese Falcon in a Nording Freehand with a glass of 1999 vintage courtesy of Horton Vineyards followed by a Bali Hai clove and a couple of Nat Am Spirit perique ryo's.

Currently I'm enjoying Dunhill 965 in a Wessex Sandblasted Bulldog accompanied by a Sam Adams Boston Lager.

Had a cob of PA while doing yardwork yesterday, then got about halfway through a brandy glass-shaped "Columbia" pipe (couldn't find anything about the brand. It's heavy, has a few fills, but doesn't smoke terribly and cost me about $5) of Irish Creme (from the Altadis sampler I got...a while...ago), and had to give it up. It's fickleness was taking my focus from my homework.

I came to the conclusion that I could probably stand to smoke nothing but PA, as it's the only tobacco I've had that I consistently enjoy and which seems to produce consistent smokes. I came to that realization at the same time as I realized that I have a couple bowlfuls left in my "Luxury Pouch."

Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture in a straight Nording Brandy now (finishing my bowl from last night)

Then I'll be grabbing a bowl of PA in my Cristiano

Then.. I haven't decided. But I'll be back and let everyone know.

Depending on how much reading I have to do for tomorrow's classes, there may be a bowl of PA (or perhaps some aromatic, or maybe both) in my near future.

I should have checked, maybe "Will Possibly Be Smoking, but May Not Be, Also" posts are not allowed?

Sounds like a new thread.. Although, this is just starting to get ridiculous.

I've seen several people mention 'PA'. Forgive my ignorance, but what is that?

(I assume it doesn't stand for Pennsylvania. ;))
And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good? Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?

Bigwill, PA stands for Prince Albert*. It's one of the "codger burley" blends (I think...someone will be along shortly to set me straight if I'm wrong), meaning it's a pretty straight burley that's been around a long time. Like many of the older blends, it's useful for pipes and RYO cigarettes because of the way it's cut (they call it a Crimp Cut).

I really like it, as do a lot of people, but there are some people who think it is horrible. One person went as far as to say he refused to throw his leftovers into a trash fire, as he feared it would legitimize PA as a tobacco, which he refused to do. Opinions range widely on the subject.

It's cheap, it's consistent in recipe, it's widely available, and I have gotten consistently great smokes using it with little special attention.


*some Prince Albert ads mentioned "P.A." This was their double-acronym, for Prince Albert and "Pipe Appeal."

Much obliged. I've seen some post some of their old ads (at least I assume that they're from the 50's and 60's, but it could just be an attempt at manufactured nostalgia).

I've never tried smoking Prince Albert. Every time I think about it, it makes me cross my legs . . . ;) Maybe I'm too young.
