Castello Pipes Carlo Scotti, created the Castello pipe in , in a little artisan workshop. His aim was to produce a pipe which was technically and aesthetically at the absolute summit of the quality “parametro”. This quality means many things which are hard to explain. It means working only and exclusively the best briar, that is: Knowing how to work at the right moment, not before or after. Knowing how to work with respect for precise parameters of functionalism, aesthetics and good taste. Choosing only shops of the highest professional reputation, once the briar has been transformed into a pipe. And many other things. So today the “imagine Castello” has been created as a perfect reflection of what Carlo Scotti set out to do 50 years ago, and that is what Castello pipes are really all about.
Pleasant This tobacco was good so good, that it reminded me of a time long ago The Year is June was the rainy season for ‘Nam.

Medium to Full Pleasant Ok so if you have tried this you may be aware of the McClelland tin smell, I won’t debate it here, other than I personally love it. You may also be aware that it is hard to keep lit, is a pain in the ass to rub out, is to wet to smoke out of the tin and can bite you hard if your not careful. I thought you gave it four stars?
So first off let my start by letting you in on my ritual with this fine ‘baccy. I pop open a g tin and then rub the whole thing out as fine as I can make it, takes about a half hour. After transforming the black and dark brown rubbery, leathery, jerky like flakes into something resembling crumbled up rubber I then let it sit out on a piece of wax paper for forty eight hours. I then pour back into the tin and let it sit a week to “rest”. Now that this stuff is at a smokable consistency, I gravity load a bowl and pack as one would normally, making a few slight adjustments for humidity, time of day, wind speed, ect This is one of the sweetest, tastiest flakes ever produced.
It coats the palate with a slight tingle and a delicious sweetness right off the first few puffs. Don’t over do it or it will burn you. You have been warned! Then a myriad of delicate and subtle flavors come knocking at the door. Stewed stone fruits, plums, zesty citrus notes, some exotic spices, smoked wood, and a dense syrupy note.
Ancient fountains[ edit ] Hellenistic fountain head from the Pergamon museum Ancient civilizations built stone basins to capture and hold precious drinking water.

USk Symposium Meet the Correspondent: I don’t feel comfortable when I leave home without a sketchbook and some pens in my bag. I think that my way to put things in my memory is to draw them. And taking pictures isn’t the same thing. I live in a very dynamic surrounding — Israel is a warm country with warm weather and warm people. Of course, we have seashores, which calm us a little bit. I love to sit in a corner of some Tel-Aviv coffee shop and explore relationships: All this unique local mix of cultures, languages and styles is always a great source for inspiration.
You need to be fast, because, as I said, everything is very dynamic.
