July must be "Jess Chonowitsch" month. Normally we only seldom have available one of Jess's highly-demanded briars, yet over the past few updates Adam has repeatedly been producing one from our estates inventory. This one is the most curious yet, combining Jess's signature mastery of flow and posture with a compact, stout little Horn shape, the proportions of which rather remind me of S. Bang. "Nosewarmer Horn" is some unusual territory to venture into, though Jess doesn't appear to have had any trouble keeping everything well-balanced and graceful, even as he packed both a medium-sized bowl and tons of smooth, lively gesture into something about as long as a Dunhill Group 1. And of course, Jess being Jess, he also threw in loads and loads of amazing grain for good measure.
