Hello Briar Lovers,
I just got in a small selection of Dunhills and a Barling from the
1950's-60's. I took one 1950's Dunhill for myself and it is an
unbelievable smoke. I ask myself is it the Algerian briar they used
then or was it just they could afford to age the briar longer or is it
that the briar has been aged as pipe for 50 years. This is the 2nd 50
year old pipe I have acquired for myself and both are unbelievable
smokes. Whithout getting into the brand or briar quagmire I am
beginning to think that the older the briar the better the smoke.
We all know that better quality makers age their briar for 3-7 years
and this makes them better smokers. So logic leads me to conclude that
older is better. Yet, I also added to my personal collection a Ser
Jacopo oil cured Jucunda and it smokes almost as well as my two really
old briars, and so do my Ashtons. So while I am ever more certain that
older is better and I am equally sure that oil curing has an effect
similar to aging.
I welcome any body else's thought on this.
This week I have in a small selection of
