I'm trying to get one more round out of all of the Meers today, so Bacchus is now loaded with some English baccy! :D

Nice sunny afternoon today, a bit of Sir Walter Raleigh aromatic in a Yello Bole.

I've been smoking SWRA recently and it's usually my forced holiday family party smoke, it tastes a lot better without the pressure.

This is my first time ever smoking it, and the pipe is new as well so I’m not ready to form an opinion on it. It didn’t smell nearly as aromatic in the pouch as I thought it would but I can definitely taste the topping. I’d say it’s better than the regular SWR, definitely has the ‘My grandpas pipe in the 1960’s” smell goin on, which I really dig. The whole reason I am gathering a few of these older style (including some NOS) pipes is solely because my grandpa was my pipe smoking memory from my childhood and a huge reason I took it up later in life. He had just a few Medicos, Yello Boles and Kaywoodies in a single rack, and though my mother couldn’t for the life of her remember what he smoked (he passed in 1970), it was always “wonderful smelling and bought in pouches that were always in his shirt pocket”. When my grandmother died my brother got the little pipe rack and the pipes, they were all straight, smallish (group 3 or 4 size) and though not expensive, meticulously clean and cared for. Practical everyman pipesmoker from the middle 20th century.

I think we lost a lot when we lost our simpler times and more frugal values.

Totally agree . . . I am trying to simplify my life.

Going to purge a few pipes in the future that do not get the attention they deserve.
