Last night I enjoyed three bowls of tobacco with a dear friend. Today I was reminded of the pleasant and meaningful conversation we shared by tasting in turn the richness of the first bowl of Dunhill 965, the frank beautiful simplicity of a bowl of Velvet and the full sweetness of Black Gold Plus. With the memory of those sweet tobaccos coming in turn the memory of the gentle and genuine conversation drifts to and fro like gentle puffs of smoke on the evening breeze. What a blessed thing to enjoy a pipe and the company of another dear like-minded brother in Christ. What a great blessing this!

So much excitement for this smoking season. I have three tins that I have stored up and am waiting to try, two of which are new! I have a tin of Nightcap that is waiting to be opened and I cannot wait to return to that sweet latakian goodness again. Additionally I have some Dunhill Standard Mixture which is a great excitement to me as I have loved 965 and London Mixture. So much joy ahead! Finally, I was given a tin of Rattray's Bagpiper's Dream, which I have decided to love, because I love bagpipes and am an amateur bagpiper. And so it goes. Let the smoking begin, and hopefully, the pipe blogging!
