    Made a very satisfying trip to my local B&M, Big Apple Cigar and Pipe in Forest Lake, MN. (aka King Smoking Pipes and Cigars). Used my gift card and grabbed a Dunhill Cumberland apple and some hard to find tobacco. They've recently remodeled and the place looks great. Eric the owner is a great guy. If any of you up north here need a place to go, you should check them out.

    Score! Always good when B&Ms have a good selection for pipe smokers, and not just cigar guys. That Dunhill is sharp.

    A great story all around! Smoke in good health and great enjoyment.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Nice acquisition. Would like to try some of that Hal O' The Wynd just because of the name.

    Thanks much, gents. Nothing like a new pipe to brighten the day.

    Ash, sorry to get your hopes up. I thought about adding one more photo, butt...

    @timt I was there in August of 2018 and the pipe tobacco choices were a little thin but I agree they have a great place and the owner is super friendly. I did score a tin of Penzance and made sure I supported them with a good purchase.

    Yes, it's a very small shop and they cater to cigar smokers like most places but compared to every other shop I've been to in the Twin Cities, it's the best I've been seen regarding pipes and pipe tobacco. They've rearranged the store and have a ton more pipes out on display where they use to have most of their pipe inventory in the back out of sight. The old sitting area is now the front counter and pipe display area and the old storage room space is the new, much larger sitting area.

    It's a little out of the way for me but not far from home. I'm glad they're there and it could be a good idea to keep a close relationship with them, especially if I'm looking for something in particular.
