Pipe Tobacco Reviews

Kyle Weiss

2019 has arrived, and I couldn’t be happier for a new start.  Last year was a bumpy ride for a lot of folks and for me any representation of a new beginning is not only pleasing but welcomed.  Not one to engage in silly resolutions, I simply apply myself to positive change and reinforce decent habits.  Trying new things being among them—it keeps young minds youthful and occasionally dusts the cantankerous cobwebs off of the routine and stodgy.  Enter Seattle Pipe Club’s “Hood Canal.”

Merely described as an “abundant balkan mixture of latakia, turkish orientals, luxury burleys and perique,” there’s a lot of things at play in this mixture, and I was enthusiastically tasked to see how well they all got along.  Joe Lankford is credited to this blend and this tobacco was my first time personally getting acquainted with his work.  About a year ago, Kevin had Joe on the Pipes Magazine Radio Show (Episode 247), which is well worth the listen if you haven’t indulged.

If you haven’t heard of Bisgaard Pipes you’re not alone. I actually hadn’t heard about them either until Kevin mentioned to me that they were under new ownership. “New Ownership? I didn’t know the old owners, how long have they been in business?” I asked.

“Why don’t you write an article about it and you’ll find out,” he said.

“I see how it is Kevin.”

The Pipe Pundit

Fred Brown

Ah, a new year ahead. Don’t you just love all that “newness!” There is a ripeness about new starts, or re-starts. There is renewed hope, renewed excitement about the future and the mysterious “the road ahead.”

There is something special about a pristine, pencil-thin horizon that is exciting, like the start of a fresh adventure into the unknown.

And that can only mean one thing for the pipes and tobacco lovers among us: Original pipes and new blends. Am I right?

    Where Will Pipes Be in 100 Years?

    Rick Newcombe

    Last May I attended the Chicago Pipe Show, and the first person I saw was an Englishman named Reggie Stevens. Reg lives in Birmingham, England and speaks with the accent of someone who has lived in the north of England his whole life. He sounds a little like Ringo Starr.

    "Reg!" I said, "It's so good to see you!" as I gave him a big bear hug.

    "Well, I'll tell you, mate," he said, "I'm feeling a little better now. My wife of 54 years died in January, and this is the first time I can feel the cloud lifting a little – because of all the love and friendship there is at this pipe show."
