Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

A second run at EGR Blend: a half-bowl in a small bent apple from Mr. Jansen's late French Quarter Shop. I think the under-flavor I'm getting is . . . cinnamon? Pat, Vanna, what do I win?

I think I'm gonna have to be in the right mood for this stuff's flavor.
 
In hindsight maybe instead of having 10 pounds of LBF and LNF I should have bought 4 pounds of premium tinned. Time will tell if I die with tobacco left over in the cellar.
If you don't go through it all, someone (hopefully a family member) will be praising your memory as they have a wonderful time with it.

Better to have too much than not enough. And I've never seen the price of tobacco trend downward.
 
After my workout, shower, grocery run, and breakfast, I loaded Half & Half into my Colossal billiard with the lightly-bent stem. It proved a solid 20-minute half-bowl smoke, partly inside by the screen door, partly out in the cool morning air on the walkway.
 
Parked myself on my front step with a book and smoked a half-bowl of EG Robinson in my pot pipe. It burned well until about 15 minutes in, at which point I had to relight for another 5 minutes' worth of smoke. Perhaps the blend was not quite dry enough, despite my leaving it out on a saucer for half an hour before I packed and lit the pipe. Anyway, the blend is growing on me.

One relight isn’t bad at all. It is growing on me. Still contemplating a tub but giving it more time
