HU Tobaccos Sunset Flake, in a Savinelli Trevi 320. Superb tobacco, strong flavour of grassy and hay-like Virginias with a tartness at the edge.

Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding - Special Reserve in a Mario Grandi freehand Dublin Lovat.

OK, but too mild for my nicotine tolerance levels, so it just isn't satisfying even as a first smoke of the day :|

I am smoking Peter Rasmussen Black Label in a corn cob with 6mm home-made balsa filter while reading the story of Spyros Skouras:

In May 1935, Spyros Skouras is the founder of the merge Fox with Twentieth Century Pictures. He served as president of the merged company 20th Century Fox from 1942 to 1962. Skouras was also a major stockholder of 20th Century Fox.
In the 1950s he, together with his brothers, controlled 20th Century Fox, National Theaters, Fox West Coast Theaters, United Artists Theaters, Skouras Theaters, Magna Corp, and Todd AO. Skouras' assets in 1952 amounted to $108,000,000, greater than any other theater or movie mogul, including the Schencks, Warners, Shuberts, or his countryman Alexander Pantages.

He signed a young model named Norma Jean Baker to 20th Century Fox who, after changing her name to Marilyn Monroe, rose to fame as the most famous Hollywood sex symbol of the 20th century. Skouras had a special relationship with Monroe, who often called him "Papa Skouras".

During Skouras' tenure, the longest in the company's history, he worked to rescue the faltering movie industry from the lure of television. 20th Century Fox's advertising slogan, Movies are Better than Ever, gained credibility in 1953 when Spyros introduced CinemaScope in the studio's groundbreaking feature film The Robe.
The wide screen CinemaScope increased the appeal of movies, helping them maintain audiences against television. This new technology soon became the standard of the whole industry.
