These are the tobaccos that I have at home right now.
I try not to have too much open cans at the same time. I only soke one or two pipes at day so I have to keep them carefully closed. And the best way I know is not to open them 🙂
-Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake (2 cans)
-Capstan Gold (1 can; I gave it to my neighbour yesterday with a pipe I did for him)
-Reiner blend n.71 Long Golden Flake (1 can)
-Escudo (1 can), Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bull’s eye Flake (50 gr)
-Cornell & Diehl Bayou Morning (1 can)
-C&D Kajun Kake (1 can)
-Peretti Park Square (1 pipe remaining)
-Esoterica Tobacciana Penzance (1,5 cans)
-C&D Pirate Kake (1 can)
-C&D Mississippi Mud (1 can)
-Balkan Sasieni (1 can)
-Dunhill Standard Mixture (2 cans, one of them too old)
-Dunhill Early Morning (2 cans)
-Peterson Old Dublin (1 can).
Some samples from friends (they are trying to convince me that some aromatics are amazing, but it’s not working:
-Nat Sherman 314.
-C&D Autumn Evening
-Peretti Black Virginia (the only one I enjoyed from them).
As you can see, I’m very classic on tobaccos, enjoying mostly english blends with latakia.
I bought a new Stanwell Vintage dublin. It’s a cheap sandblasted pipe, but I like his old school look a lot. I bought it basically to add to my downstairs pipe group. Those are the pipes that I use while having a walk with the dog or walking in the country.
My friend Alex from Pipa Sibarita also gave me a very nice gift. This nice Prunoñosa pipe. These pipes where handmade by Bruto Sordini, artisan of Don Carlos, comissioned by Jordi Pruñonosa, with the brand of his tobacco shop in Barcelona.

1ªC and great fog. Perfect night for smoking a flake of Luxury Bull’s Eye by Stokkebye before going to sleep. I was not in the mood for latakia today.
No humidity in the pipe… but i can not say the same about my nose.
Joan is smoking this night: Chacom Sport + Petter Stokkebye’s Luxury Bull’s Eye.
A christmas gift to myself from myself. My first meerschaum pipe in my collection. A real lattice.
This canadian from Lubinski is bigger than I thought when I ordered it. It means that I can put more latakia inside. I’ll smoke it soon.
Bought from Pipa Sibarita.
Joan is smoking today: Markuz + C&D Mississippi Mud.
Another awesome gift I had for my birthday is a handmade Lumberman made by my friend Robert Markuz. I would like to link his website, but he’s a lazy man and he has not website yet so you can not admire his nice pipes.
I smoked it today for first time. It makes a lot of smoke as you can see in the picture:
Better pictures of this beautiful pipe:

Dirk Claessen is one of my favourite pipe makers.
That’s why it has been totally crazy and amazing when my two loves gave me this surprise for my birthday. It’s a beautiful hand made pipe specially made for me. I have the best wife and son ever seen.
I’m very happy!
Joan is smoking today: Dirk Claessen + Penzance.
My son is not impressed at all by my pipe workshop and the new lathe.
Joan is not smoking at all right now.
Today I have been in Barcelona in a lunch with some friends from the smoking pipes forum El rincón de la Pipa.
I had really great time with some old and new friends and tried some new tobaccos like Frog Morton.
Here in the photo, my friends Álex from Pipa Sibarita and Robert from Markuz Pipes.
Alex is smoking the ball shaped pipe I did few time ago.
Joan has been smoking today: Cantó Nosewarmer + McClelland Frog Morton on the Bayou.
I just received today a new pipe I bought. Beautiful sandblasted Tsuge Kaga. I thought it would be macanized, but it has the script “Handmade in Japan” in the shank.
It costed only 63$. I love it.
Joan is smoking right now: Tsuge Kaga + C&D Kajún Kake.
My friend Álex came to visit us at home and there was a lot of pipes in the trunk of his car. I bought this beautiful Don Carlos pipe. I’m gonna smoke it right now.
Álex has a great website called Pipa Sibarita. They sell new and used smoking pipes.
Joan is smoking right now Don Carlos + C&D Bayou Morning.
