I got my goodies in and am very excited about all of it. I'm really excited to try the Pete. I've never had one before. She's a nice looking pipe too. Thanks for all the work. It was a great time.

So many new baccy's to try too  bounce drunken

Thank you everyone, esp. the Captain, for letting me play along. He was also generous enough to send more than a bit of booty my way -- I came out ahead (which wasn't planned), and I hope everyone else can say the same.

Got mine, too--thanks so much, all and sundry! Such booty...

Inaugurated my new Tinderbox pipe with some of Steve Books' First Smoke, because I kind of had to--it's right there in the name!

Also, I took one sniff of that Tambolaka and got weak in the knees--that stuff smells positively evil. Not bad, mind you, just...dangerous! Like king cobra venom mixed up with TNT. I'm right to be frightened, aren't I? If I don't survive, give me a burial at sea...

As I remember this, yes, fairly strong N, but to me it just tasted rough and unfinished. I ended up giving most of it to someone who grows his own tobacco -- he found it rather mild and soothing (which it why I won't smoke his 'experiments')

Thanks again to Blackhorse for setting this up, Mr Smee for his part and everyone for playing along! Here is a pic of my booty, and me trying for a pirate scowl!

Woohoo! My pirate treasure arrived today, albeit, the box looks like it fell off the side of the boat and then got trampled by a herd of elephants. However, the goods inside arrived intact. I celebrated with a bowl of night train in my clay pipe. Smoked beautifully, she did. And yes, i coated the lip in parrafin before risking the skin to the clay.

Thanks again, blackhorse for setting this up for us. It was a bit of fun for sure!

Goes to show...packing is an extremely important aspect of any deal!


The Night Train is about 7 years old, and a very pleasant smoke. Glad you're liking it.

One thing I got in the loot pile (and, no...it wasn't LOOT-a -FISK!)


A tin of 2008 Dunhill Light Flake. Wow! Five years does a fine job on allowing this worthy blend to mature. There almost seems to be that cigarette-ish flavor of Turkish in it...man...right in my wheelhouse! What a treat!

Yeah, I almost burned my fingers once. I actually coated the stem where I held it with parrafin so I didnt burn my fingers. Only issue was that it melted the wax on my shirt. :/

Got my box today, it was great lookin through the box, felt like christmas, even pulled out a tun of tobacco I thought was added by mistake, here I just forgot all about the first round of tobacco from Mr.smee!

It was a blast Thank you Black Horse for dealing with all the headaches! and thanks to the brothers for all the fun and cool stuff!
