Deep, rich & satisfying & also something a little bit different. A welcome addition. Also had a bit of a ‘wobble’ & bought another pipe. A Peterson’s Irish Army 608.

Don't blame you for wobbling, it's a lovely pipe.

Stopped by local cig store hoping to score a pouch of PS Amsterdam Shag but price went up to 12 bucks for a little pouch

Came out with these instead

Good smoke blends there but always seems to taste better when a gift
:awesome:
Especially when it's a gift that has a bit of age under it's belt

I'm glad to hear that somebody likes that blend as I just do no understand it. I still have most of a tin and I can't find a reason to try it again. :(
