Esoterica Margate bag. P&C has some Esoterica blends in and should have called you if you are on the list.

No Penzance though.

Yesterday was a good day coming home to the post.

1st off, I got my new Castello 55 back from Walker Pipe Repair to refinish the rim, which looked pretty terrible when I received it. Mike Meyers at Walker Pipe Repair does excellent work for amazing prices. It cost me less than $25 for shipping both ways and the rim refinish. He also is very over the top with wrapping your pipe up in a ton of bubble wrap to make sure it’s journey home is successful. I need to thank @Piper for the reference to Walker Pipe Repair and Mike Meyers.

I spent hundreds on the pipe and it was very poorly packed when I received. Then this guy, for $10 repair job wraps it up like a fine piece of art...

2nd, I received a tobacco I’ve been seeking for over a year. @JimInks and I had a PM conversation about this tobacco over a year ago and he said it would be near impossible to find, and he was right. Luckily, some came up on another forum and snatched it up. Since it’s no longer made, it also has a few years on it, so that’s nice

1.75oz of Motzek Strang sliced and jarred in coins.

I think I may actually smoke this in the new 55 that just came back. The smell on this is an amazing mix of tangy dark fruit and sweet fig. Maybe even some bright apple lingering. The coins should drop perfectly in the 55 which has ~1" diameter bowl.

Congrats Erik. Can't wait to see the new 55 in action.

Waiting impatiently for the postman, my order from WWC is finally "out for delivery" im not having much luck with USPS lately, my last 2 orders have both taken a few days holiday where i cant even track them, I was worried about this one because it has some hard to find tobacco in it, pics later

Estate pipes 15% off this weekend at SP. of course the few pipes I had wanted to send in are not up, so no credit to buy.

But maybe next time.

Some Samuel Gawith to try, i have had the 1792 before i think from @blackrabbit but the rest are all new to me, i understand the Cabbies Mixture is hard to get hold of so i was lucky, im told the WCC Delux Crumb Cut is wonderful so we shall see.

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

Indeed. Not a bad deal for $27. Couldnít really find a thing wrong with them.
