    Just finished GH Black twist sliced in a Savinelli Capri. Trying to decide if I like this or not. Even when smoking I can tell the room note is reminiscent of a dumpster fire.

    C&D Billy Budd Blonde in a BriarWorks Icarus Dark Corduroy Volcano. I've been excited to try this for months despite the mixed reviews!

    Good evening to you all.
    A mid-evening smoke; 'Flying Squadron' in a tiny Dunhill no. 130 from 1972, given to me by a good friend, who never quite came to terms with it.
    Luckily, I did.

    Last night it was Dark Bird's Eye in an over-reamed battered old birth year Dunhill. Great smoker. Even though it's strong I like DBE in a wide bowl sometimes, so I filled this big boy halfway and had a perfect pipe.



    And today has been MVP in a Barling Quaint,



    and later the same in a BriarWorks.

    Good luck with your project, Russ. You'll need it.

    I'm not going to smack you. I bought a 3 year-old tin at the pipe show in March; it tasted fantastic and I thought I'd found another favourite; bought a new tin and the tobacco just tasted bland in comparison. Samuel Gawith's 'Lakeland Dark' is very much the same tobacco, but with a fuller taste.

    That's the difference right there. Buy it with the intention of not touching it for at least a year and you'll always be happy.

    I'll join in the 'slagging off' of a perfectly decent & very well done flake. I enjoy it, but for me it's 'missing' something in the taste department.

    Evening all. Haven't smoked this flake for ages, enjoying it now in a F&T.
    Similar I suppose, to HH bold Kentucky, but doesn't taste as nice. Although bold Kentucky isn't as strong as Irish flake, so 'two' good reasons to smoke & enjoy both.

    Lovely looking little pipe, Jesper. Is that it's original stem?
