Let me describe a wonderful smoking experience. For the context, it has been way too cold to smoke outside. Two nights ago, I had to scrape ice off my car, while the freezing rain was falling. That is not as fun as it sounds. Today, it was UP to the low 40's! I tried to turn a tamper, but it was too cold to turn the details I like on a tamper.
The first pipe is a no-name pipe, that I got from a guy on Pipes Magazine in 2011. He was really good at rustifying pipes. This one looks like lava is flowing over the sides of the pipe. The blend was Russ's Chocolate Covered Espresso. It just arrived a week or so ago.
The second pipe is the 2016 POY from CPS. Christian Pipe Smokers forum. It is a Graybow. The blend was C&D's Mocha Cavendish from a number of years ago. I don't think it is still offered. What I smoked had variety of tobacco, but the present Mocha offering has only black tobacco. The blend I smoked today, I picked up my first Chicago Pipe Show, many years ago.
I alternated pipes as throughout the smoke. Both tasted very good, but the coffee flavor was stronger in the newer blend. This is to be expected. If you enjoy coffee with your smoke, perhaps you should try a mocha blend.
Also, the first person, at the next CPCC meeting in Arlington Heights on 2/23, who asks for the tamper I turned, can have it.
