A PERFECTLY INDULGENT DAY
Yes. I am somewhat wired. Life smells like oranges.
PETERSON'S IRISH OAK
A rich blend of Brazilian and African Virginia leaf with Cavendish and rare Louisiana Perique.
Pretty darn decent stuff. Admittedly, this is a tin from 2005, so it's got over eight years age on it. It smells heavenly, due to tin-fermentation.
An enjoyable smoke, similar to many other mixtures of flue-cured and condimental tobaccos made for the VaPer market.
Still have several tins of like vintage.
COMOY'S CASK No. 5
Bullet Rye Select.
Virginias, Burley, and something black (Cavendish?) topped with a "whiskey" note.
Extremely enjoyable Danish tobacco. The pipes now manufactured under the name 'Comoy' are from Cadogan, who has done their level best to ruin a once stellar reputation. I've seen total garbage with that estimable name, manufactured in Italy. Or maybe it was Vladivostok. Never mind. Suffice to say that I will not buy a Comoy pipe made in this day. Bleh. Just bleh.
The pipe tobacco, on the other hand, is a rather splendid product indeed, resembling any number of other English brands now manufactured in Denmark, in both cut and appearance.
Smokes like it too.
Worth enjoying several bowls of, this.
In a real Comoy; a Blue Riband.
Not one of 'those' things.
The tea? Nah, shan't go into detail. Merely functional hydration, not a super-fine Oolong or Shuisien, not even a Pi Lo Chun.
Just something rather brisk.
