Consider me intrigued about anything that calls itself "trout stream"...

The tobacco was tamped below the rim of the bowl before the charring light. Once I put flame to it the tobacco expanded like crazy!

Speaking anecdotally and with no science whatsoever, my perception has always been one of appreciation when it expands so much, because it seems corrolated with proper humidity. Too little expansion seems to happen for me with wet tobacco, and tobacco that smokes best seems to expand a lot when lighting.

That's always good info. It's akin to the cigar cut where a "dimple" falls out of the head after you remove the cutter

Hmm that’s interesting. I guess I haven’t payed attention to that. The bowl did smoke very well!

For those of you posting can you all please tell me a little something about the blends you're lighting up? Virginia, English, vintage, fresh, dried, right out of the tin, etc.
Thanks! I'm always interested to gleam pipe knowledge as an appreciator but not anywhere near an expert.
