Here's Santa's payload from this afternoon:



A LOT of this is very well-aged stuff...ALL of it is either a much-loved blend of mine, or one that I've had at the top of the list of things to try for a while now.

100g McClelland Virgina Woods (1999!)
100g Chicago 2009 Limited/Numbered Sam Gawith Scotch Cut Mixture
100g Rattray's Hal O' The Wynd
3.5 oz MacBaren Virginia No. 1 (2004)
2oz GLP Odyssey (2005)
2oz GLP Blackpoint (hard to make out, but either '05 or '06)
50g McClelland Dark Star (2006)
50g CoJ No. 4 Pure Virginia Flake
50g Wessex Burley Slice (2005)
2oz C&D Luigi Radice (part of the new Scuderia series)
1 Tin of Old Mill Evangeline snuff


Unbelievable.

For now, I've got a hankerin' for burley, and I don't have any open...so I think I'm gonna go ahead and tuck into the Wessex while I get the rest logged into the cellar and find a place for it all.

Santa stopped by while I was at work, and I came home to a wonderful surprise


The Jolly Old Elf must be a mind reader! Just last night I was thinking that I hadn't smoked anything from Rattray's in a while and that I would have to add a tin to my next order.

Rattray's 100 g Tins:
Old Gowrie
Marlin Flake
Hal O' the Wynd
Red Rapparee
And a 50 g tin of 2008 McCranies Red Ribbon

Fantastic job Santa! Thank you! And many thanks to Carlos for keeping the Secret Santa going!
Mike.

Looks like we are waiting to hear from five of you on receiving.  Some are in Santa's sleigh.  Tslot's is in the bushes next to the porch I think.  Or was that the front desk?  Someplace nearby.  I have not heard from two of you on having shipped yet.  Hopefully all are on the way or delivered.


Santa is full of surprises!  Ho Ho ho!  santa rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer

Ok.  We are down to just a handful.  One due to be delivered Thursday.  One already delivered.  And a few PM's sent.  I had to delete more messages in my PM boxes.  Amazing how Sent boxes and Inboxes fill up so fast.

Yup, the delivery elf was chatting up our cute receptionist yesterday when he dropped off the package.  
I had the day off so I didn't receive until today.   Thanks Santa!

Dang! Santa musta hit the coffee early this morning to be delivering already. Nice selection of tabacs! And more Snuff. Apparently the use of snuff is increasing. I will admit that my first try since high school was pretty remarkable. Maybe I am just now old enough to appreciate it.

keep up the good work Santa! If I am right, one more to go. Ho Ho Ho! santa rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer geek rendeer rendeer rendeer

Figured I'd post this here.. Instead of the whatcha smoking feed... I couldn't wait to light up my new meerschaum... I've wanted a lattice shape for a while... I spent the morning looking at it and when taking the stem out about a quarter of the shank broke out in a half moon sort of shape... So I spent the day repairing it.... The shank is somewhat shorter and the stem is now a saddle shape... The operation went well... Sometimes it's good to be a pipemaker ...And she's smoking as expected ... Breaking it in with some McC Boston 1776

Thanks Santa ;-)

Glad that worked out ok!  Those things are so brittle.  

Speaking of dropping pipes etc.  I dropped a Heeschen last night really hard on concrete.  Because I tried to catch it on the way down.  Not a mark on it.  I could not believe it.  I have several pipes away trying to get new stems.  I cannot afford to break any more of my great smokers.

The last Secret Santa package is flying in circles, trying to get delivered today.  Hope it lands soon.

Ho ho ho!  santa rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer geek rendeer rendeer rendeer rendeer
