    I lived near 610/San Felipe in Houston in the late nineties. I miss green grass in February sometimes.

    Yeah, I'll probably be complaining in July and August but winter weather isn't too bad in Houston.

    Received my new Falcon and three Hunter bowls today. I started the break-in with a half bowl of Smoker's Pride Mellow in each bowl. I'll continue with a tin of OGS probably tomorrow. The first half bowl in each was a bit rough, but things should improve from here on.

    An old peterson with some peretti 432 today.

    I've always thought poorly of aros (like flavored cigars!) but I like this one

    Carter Hall - have many people here tried it, and if so, did you like it? For me, it starts out really good, mildly sweet from the Virginia, slight nuttiness from the burley, and a nice casing, chocolate/molasses lightly applied. But the bottom half of the bowl, not so much. It turns bland, then gets a little bitter. I've tried it in a cob, taller bowl, and a larger wider bowl.

    I've given some thought to buying a tub of P&C's version, but not sure anymore. Probably too many good burleys out there, if I want to dabble further in them, to spend any more money on this or it's clone, although I think the P&C version might be better.

    I've never tried Carter Hall, I haven't found it at the local grocery stores or drugstores. Of course the only drugstores nearby are Walgreens and CVS, and CVS doesn't carry any tobacco products. I does sound like it's one of those iconic brands I'll have to try sometime though.

    I find CH best in my MM cobs. It's my go to setup when puttering in garage or working in the yard. I'll mix it with 5 brothers for when I feel I need a good nic hit.

    I've been breaking in the new Falcon bowls, but this evening I had PS #17 English Luxury in a MM Country Gentleman followed by Peterson Irish Oak in a MM Mark Twain. The Irish Oak was pretty good tonite, maybe because I was relaxed and smoked slowly while sitting next to the firepit, or maybe because I was sipping bourbon also. I nice relaxing evening.

    Nice pic, Peterson, Stanwell and Dunhill all together. Nice tamper also, I can't make out the manufacturer but I bet it's not one of the other three.

    I need to get a tray like that.:signs021:

    A couple of bowls of OGS in my new Falcon bowls this morning with coffee while reading the newspaper. I've had a bout 4 smokes in the new bowls, and they are getting pretty good, the first couple of smokes in each was a bit rough.

    I prefer the natural aluminum stem finish to the anodized brown. The brown is a bit prettier, but it's easier to see the humidome is clean with the natural aluminum finish. I've read you can use the dry rings for four smokes, but they get so nasty after one that I don't believe it.

    Davidoff Royalty in a Lorenzo Lovat for an evening smoke. The Royalty is a very soft tasting english blend with light latakia. I don't know if I will order any more, there are some Stokkebye blends I like better at lower prices, but I recommend it to anyone who wants to try an english blend for the first time.

    I have a question for you guys, trying to figure if I got beat real bad. I picked up 8 shell briar dunhills, 1 bruyere dunhills, 4 stanwell , a neerup singe, Brigham, posella and a his pipe. I paid $500 at the store for all and a nice pipe stand. Did I get beat?

    That works out to about $30 a pipe, which seems pretty good to me if you want that many pipes. It makes me feel better though, I've been planning to get a meerschaum bowl for my Falcon and pulled the trigger on this.
    upload_2016-2-17_18-32-47.png

    About $87 with shipping (doesn't include lighter) which is just a bit more than a new meerschaum bowl if you can find them in stock. I was having a bit of buyer's remorse, but I feel better now.

    Hey Gents,

    i had a very tasty pipe today. I opened my Stanwell Vanilla for the first time. Man, what a nice scent. I smoked it in my Vauen Duke 4342N. Love this pipe because of the shape, the colour and the bit.

    [​IMG]

    Want to buy Dunhill Early Morning Pipe and Dunhill Nightcap these days to see how these are. My Problem is, i want to try some other brands, which are only available here in the US. Hearth & Home Viprati and the Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding.

    I donĀ“t think there is a way to get these two on the regular way,or? Do you think, that there is a chance to get these in general without doing something wrong? :signs002:

    Greetings
    Thorsten
