Tonight is the long overdue 2nd installment of Pipe Night here on Half Ashed. We ended up doing a pretty free-form, rambling, 2-hour show as we’re prone to do. We covered a number of basic topics related to pipe smoking, some of which are listed in the description. Join us!
Unbanded 034 (J2) from JLedou. Tonight’s Unbanded is a robusto, coming in at 5”x50 with an evenly colored, dark brown wrapper. The wrapper is actually very oily, although this is disguised by the tooth. The cold draw is sweet, with an aroma much like seasoned hay. All seems delightful pre-light for me (Kip)….let’s see how it fires up.
The Southern Draw Quickdraw PA with a Pennsylvania wrapper (also available with EC Dark Habano or EC CT). The binder is Nicaraguan, and filler composed of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. We are smoking the Short Panatela, coming in at 5.5” x 40 – but the blend is also available as a 4.5” x 44 petit corona.

Tonight’s cigar, Unbanded 033, is draped in a dark”ish” wrapper (mid-tone brown with some much darker mottling) and a sweet but cedary aroma from the foot. It is 5” x 50 by my measure, with moderate veining and a wrapper that looks dry but *feels* oily and supple. Let’s see how badly we can be fooled, shall we?

The EP Carrillo 2011 Dark Rituals Edicion Limitada is a cigar with a special place in my heart. It’s not the best cigar in the world, it’s not my favorite size but it is the only cigar I’ve ever received for building someone a house
Tonight, we’re smoking the La Tradicion Cubana Reserva Familiar, from our old friend Luis Sanchez down in Little Havana. We haven’t had any of Luis’ cigars on the show in a very long time. Let’s see how they’re smoking these days…
Join us in smoking an old favorite of ours – the EP Carrillo Edicion Inaugural from 2009. Tune in to see if this flavorful but gentle cigar has remained so in the days since our last sampling…
