Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

I'm a huge fan as well. You will probably want to explore McClelland 2035 bulk sometime too.
I was looking at that and was wondering how close they were. The Dark Star sample I had was about 10 years old, so I think it will be one I want to get a fair amount of.
 
Dunhill Bruyere 3101 loaded with Milan Black Gold. Part of a sample pack, I didn't care for this tobacco. Pleasant room note, but too mild for my tastes.

Going through sample jars, I found two flakes of Stonehaven in a ziplock. I guess because they were in a ziplock in a jar (with other samples) it never developed the beautiful crystals, though they have to be 3 years old.
 
3 Nuns in the H.Cor RC

I can tell that this pipe is going to have an gorgeous marbling colorization.


After about 5 bowls or so, you can see the signs of a nice marble color coming through. It's even more noticeable in person.

I'm still breaking it in though, as the meerschaum dust taste hasn't completely gone away yet. That may be the downside of the RC design using meerschaum, as it's harder to "break in" the air chamber portion.

That pipe is awesome :thumbup1: . Almost looks like you could put a stem in the bowl and smoke the air chamber side :lol:
 
Milan Triple Crown in my Peterson Killarney 221. A mild English blend. Side note, the garage was quite cold today.

I've decided to stop wasting good tobacco during the break in period for my H.Cor meer. Until I've exorcised the meer dust and funkiness, I'm switching to Carter Hall. On the bright side, I've had this stupid box of Carter Hall sitting in my cellar for 2-3 years, and I've never felt the urge to reach for it before now. Is it weird that I've been smoking for 4-5 years and this is the first time I'm having CH?

So... Carter Hall in my H.Cor RC (and for the foreseeable future)

Not weird. I've never smoked Carter Hall, and with as much tobacco as I've laid in already, I doubt I ever will.

I started with a pipe in 2004 and I've never had Carter Hall, Captain Black, or any of the other OTC blends. I don't think it's weird at all. In my case there was a Tinderbox near by, and an internet full of vendors. Not much need to try OTC.
