It's Cob Tuesday once again! I found this tin behind the seat of my truck today. It had been opened, but I don't remember ever smoking it. I wish I had! The can description says: "A non-aromatic mixture of Kentucky plug cut burley". A very mild smoke that is said to be reminiscent of the old-timey OTCs. I taste some cedar or pine, white pepper, leather and a mild creaminess that reminds me of good milk chocolate. It's listed as out of production, but I may need to find a couple more tins. This would make a great, easy smoke for working in the shop or tying flies.

Happy IPSD 2016 to all my pipe loving friends!! I usually only smoke one pipe and one tobacco each day, but, in honor of International Pipe Smoking Day, I'm going to go through a bit of the rotation and keep posting them as I go! Pipe number one is my Grandfather's bent Italian briar with a bowlful of Philosopher from The Tinder Box. I really enjoy this blend and need to get some more as I'm running low!
