G.L. PEASE + OPTION
PIPE USED OLD PETERSON CAVALIER.NO FOOD OR DRINK ADDED DURING SMOKE. TOOK MY TIME WITH THIS ONE & IT WAS WELL WORTH THE TIME,PUT HALF THE TOBAC IN A AIR TIGHT JAR WITH CUBE THAT I SAT OVERNIGHT IN PURE JIM BEAM-PUT BEAM/WOOD BACK INTO HALF CAN, LET SET FOR 3 WEEKS IN AIR TIGHT JAR,PLACED THE OTHER HALF IN THE PEASE CAN. THEN TRIED THE HALF I PUT BACK IN THE PEASE CAN FIRST, THEN TRIED THE JIM BEAM RESOUKED WOOD BLOCK HALF IN AIR TIGHT, FOUND THEM BOTH VERY PLEASANT-HOWEVER THE JIM BEAM RESOAKED WOOD CUBE IN AIR TIGHT MASON JAR DID THE TRICK 4ME I'm ORDERING 2 100's STRICTLY FOR AGING IN AIR TIGHT,s (MASON JARS) WITH RESOAKED JIM BEAM WOOD BLOCKS.
