Mixed grain on the right side
The very day I got it (August 11.2000) I filled it half with G,H&Co's Brown Flake.
It gave me dry puffs and despite of the precarbonization the taste was not at
all bad for a brand new pipe.
There was a rumour that Parkers are Dunhill seconds, but I do not believe it.
In any case this "Bruyere" is supposed to be one of their Premier pipes, and
it really gives the impression of carefully made pipe.
