Peter Stokkebye No. 313 Oriental consists of small sun-cured leaves from the Macedonian region. The flavor is somewhat floral and spicy with a bit of sweetness. When used with Latakia, it tends to brighten the flavor. It should be treated as a condiment as too much can overwhelm a blend. For English or Balkan blend fans who like to tweak their blends, you can't do much better than 313 Oriental.
Crown Stromboli Filter pipes are normal-sized Italian briars that will accept a 6mm (Medico or Dr. Grabow) filter. Unlike comparable pipes, these all have chambers around 3/4" for a pretty long smoke. These attractive pipes sport a red and black contrast staining that really allows the grain to "pop". Then they're topped off with a nice gloss finish which works beautifully with the black stems. Best of all, you can get a larger pipe for around the same price as the smaller 6mm pipes. If you like filtered pipes and a longer smoke, you should add a Crown Stromboli Filter pipe to your collection.
