    Dunhill Tobacco USA?

    Sad to hear that such an old standard will be gone. When I start up smoking pipes again as an older adult a tobacconist recommended EMP, and it got me started on the finer tobaccos. Did try Skiff Mixture. It is great. But there is something unique with the EMP aroma: a unique lightness.

    Do You Use A Leather Pouch?

    I found pouches to be clumsy and messy. I prefer to use a tin - recycling one for bulk blends. I have tried roll up pouches but they are good for a day or two days supply before it beings to dry out and crumple. I do most of my out of the home smoking in the car coming home from work. Tins work...

    Smoking a Pipe While Walking

    I enjoy smoking while walking, especially the city streets. You occasionally find pockets clam (no wind) to enjoy the smell of the pipe.

    Packing Pipes with Small Bowls

    What About Adding Fresh Tobacco On Top Of Dottle?

    If want fresh and clean flavor start with fresh tobacco. The Dottie has already done its job as a “filter”. It would only have a harsh and confused flavor. But if you are just smoking go ahead go for the economical approach.

    Aging Tobacco

    I particularly like aged Dunhill Flake. It is a very mellow and flavorful smoke. I prefer to leave it in the tin till time to smoke and then transfer it to bell jar. HH Old Dark Fire also, it becomes a very smooth smoke with some subtle highlights.

    Stop Tunneling Burn in the Bowl

    Agree with all of the above. Would add: try letting on the intensity of draw. The pipe might develop a more natural burn: less of a tunnel.
