    Mold or Plume?

    I'm normally pretty good being able to tell the difference between plume and mold. I recently opened a tin of Five O'cock Shadow dated 3/16 and I'm having a hard time. If it is plume, it's the most I have personally seen on pipe tobacco. At first sight I was sure it was mold, I was going to toss...

    Charring Light and Wait?

    A lot of people say to pack your pipe normal, give it a charring light, and come back a hour later. The hour wait is said to significantly improve the smoking experience. Not sure what it accomplishes, but it's intriguing. Any opinions?

    Haunted Bookshop Flake?

    A lot of people would consider Haunted Bookshop a Hand Blended tobacco. Same goes for blends like Old Joe Krantz and Bayou Morning, two of my other favorites. The difference is that I find remnants of full flakes in Haunted Bookshop, and not in the other two. Why would C&D not offer Haunted...

After a few smokes I noticed a flaw inside the bowl that was not visible previously. There is a small area of briar that has protruded from the smooth surface of...

    AGING KENTUCKY / VA BLENDS

    Kentucky/VA blends have become some of my favorites lately. Triple Play, Three Nuns, JackKnife, BF #3, etc. I've been picking up a tin here and there when I can to cellar. Everyone knows VA's age great and burley not so much. But what about the combo of KY and VA? Are they worth cellaring for 5+...

    Please Help Date McClelland Tin

    I have a tin of Butera Royal Vintage Matured Ribbon and the date code on the bottom is smudged. I took off the label and the code under reads 042880106102325. I'm thinking the date stamp on the bottom might read 80 10 but its hard to tell. I also see the 8010 number pattern in the long code. Can...
