    I’ve heard so many smokers talking about Squadron Leader that I've been wanting to try some. Last night after watching someone pay a truly unholy amount of cash for a single tin of it, I broke down and ordered some.

    Last Night:

    Squadron Leader……4 oz (bulk)

    Frog Morton on the Town…..200g (tins)

    This morning I went to the shelf for some tobacco and noticed two 100g tins of Frog Morton on the Town that I had put on the wrong shelf and therefore forgot about! CHA-CHING!!

    Yee Haw!! Ain't that Penzance great????

    Thank-you William, I'm sure from the write ups on Squadron Leader that I've read, I'm sure I'm gonna like it. Let me know what you think of that JackKnife Plug....I may have to order some.

    I'm glad I finally got to try some since it's a little hard to get right now. It is a good smoke.

    Well, I hit up my B&M today and, surprise surprise I had a TAD attack!

    I got:
    3 oz. of Dunhill's Nightcap (it was on special: buy 2 get, 1 free)
    1 oz. Chocolate ("house" blend smells like cocoa, thought I'd give it a whirl)
    1 oz. Lane Ltd.'s Crown Achievement (the guy behind the counter didn't like the smell, English blends aren't his thing apparently)

    Then I got home to find a package in the mail from a member here. He had seen that I had never tried Penzance so he sent me some! Plus, he included some Anniversary Kake with it! Talk about a great guy!

    Needless to say, I've got some smoking to do to try out these new blends!

    Bought some Esoterica - Dunbar yesterday.

    I just celebrated a birthday and I had an attack of TAD last night!!!!!

    G.L. Pease: Meridian, Quiet Nights (2tins), Maltese Falcon, and Westminster

    C&D: Sunday Picnic, Mississippi Mud, and Montford Point Marine

    Captain Earl's Ten Russians

    Low Country Waccamaw / I also got a tin of Frog Morton to add to the cellar

    I can't wait to get this package in the mail. My local B&M does not sell C&D or G.L. Pease blends, so I am looking forward to trying all of these blends.

    Well,...a sad update to my last posts,...... Nixo-billy on the Squadron Leader.

    It seems if you Google a tobacco and it brings up an etailers page with the tobacco you just Googled and shows it for sale, what you're looking at could be a "historical page",....it will even let you proccess an order.
    Even if the tobacco has been sold out for a long time.

    So the revised order:

    MacBaren's Burley London Blend 8oz
    McClelland's Frog Morton on the Town 300g
    Dunhill's Standard Mixture 50g

    Came home last night with two new blends to try.

    Dan Tobacco's Bill Bailey's Balkan Blend 8oz
    MacBaren's Navy Flake tin.

    So far, smoked the Navy Flake. Smoked great in my pipe, but I think I smoked it too fast, lol. Next time I'll try to slow down and enjoy it.

    Southerners don't talk slow because they're dumb, we do it because there's really no rush.

    bootleg,

    You've discovered the trick to not only smoking MB Navy Flake but most Mac Baren's tobaccos. I hope you find the right rhythm for the NF because that's one of my favorites.

    Here's what should be on my door step when I get home today:

    Balkan Sasieni x 2
    C & D Opening Night
    Mac Baren: Burley London
    “ HH Vintage Syrian
    “ Navy Flake
    “ Norwood
    “ Stockton

    I've enjoyed MacBaren's tobaccos thus far. So far, I've smoked the HH Vintage Syrian and HH Mature Virginia, Syrian being my favorite of the two. I have to agree with the MacBaren baccys, the slower, the better.

    I was waiting in line at my kids' school reading a book while smoking the NF and was in a pivotal point in the book. Maybe next time I'll listen to some music or something, lol.

    Was at paylesspipes.com the other day getting a box of pipe cleaners and picked up a tin each of SG Skiff Mixture and SG Perfection. I was surprised they had any in stock since SG is so sought after.

    lukestar,
    I found the McClelland 221b Honeydew to be not to my liking. igloo, another member on this forum, suggests that you let it age for 6+ months which makes for a better smoke. I'm only 2 months into aging mine, so I'll let you know what I think in a few months. Just a heads up...

    Just made my first bulk purchase though not a huge one. Picked up from local B&M, a blend of their own they call "Sailor's Delight". Golden Cavendish with a hint of fire-cured vanilla Cavendish blended in. Really nice flavor and very enjoyable smoke.

    Working through my Middle Earth sampler and already know I will be picking up some more of those blends in bulk

    Dan Tobacco - Sweet Vanilla Honeydew - 50g tin
    Mac Baran 7 seas Royal - 2oz
    Lane 1Q - 1oz

    This will be my first proper tobacco after foolishly trying Clan as my first smoke. So can't wait to sit down with my MM Corn Cob tonight and try one of these. Just not sure which one to try first

    Wow, you guys sure order some tobacco! I should probably wise up and stop spending ALL my spendin money on pipes and start stocking/trying different blends instead. I've mainly stayed with about four, yes I said four different blends of tobacco. I've been content with these so been spending money on pipes instead. I cant do both, at least not on that scale. You all have a positive influence! but, controling the urge to buy pipes is very very hard..

    Bubba, open the W.O. Larsen Signature IMMEDIATELY and smoke some! It's sooo good! It has a slightly sweet, fruity note that is quite addictive. It's some seriously good leaf and a high quality blend. I highly suggest it!

    Nothing near as impressive as some of the orders on here but just picked up 1 tin of Dunhill Early Morning Pipe as my first foray into the world of the English Blend.

    I've been pure aromatic smoker until now.

    *free sample from smokingpipes.com of B27 smooth black and gold cav. -really good..would buy on next purchase.thank you smokingpipes.I love free samples. Takes the sting out of shipping and makes me feel appreciated.
    *MacBaren vanilla flake-really nice and smooth. The first bowl I thought ay' whatever. But by the 2nd I really liked it a lot..would buy again.
    *Samuel Gawith-Navy flake-jury still out..for some reason I have had a hard time keeping it lite..I don't have that problem with anything else..so we will see as time goes on and it dries out a little bit.I left a couple flakes out over night and they were super dry..almost to dry...
    *English luxury- like to have on hand..I enjoy it.
    *1Q- also nice to have on hand.
    And that's all folks. My new tobaccos : )

    Well in the past couple weeks I got myself 4 oz of C&D's Billy Budd, 4 oz of Pirate Kake, and 2 oz of Sir Walter Raleigh. I'm liking the Billy Budd and I think I'll need to get a drum of Raleigh sometime soon. Still waiting on the Pirate Kake but I do know that I love the latakia so I'm looking forward to getting that package.

    I recently ordered and anxiously await arrival of some Boswell blends:
    2 oz Apple Strudel
    2 oz Sweet Dreams
    2 oz Spice n Nice
    2 oz Maple Leaf

    I stopped last night intending to fortify my C&D Autumn Evening stash and managed to get sidetracked by the description if their After Hours...Pulled the trigger and I must say I am very happy I did.

    atwageman, some very nice tobacco choices you made there. I just ordered a few tins of H&H's Sweet and Savory myself.
    That pipe is absolutely gorgeous! You had to be one of the first people to see it because I don't think anybody would walk away
    from a pipe like that! Nice pick-up!

    I just recieved an order from Park-Lane, one pound of Fireside and one pound of PS -Luxury Bullseye Flake. I'm already enjoying the Fireside, but hope to stash away the LBF for at least a year.

    As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

    @cortezattic Thanks for the compliment about the pipe. When it arrived at my B&M (McCranie's) the owner held it back for me. He knew I would want it as I seek out Tonino Jacono's work. He grades his pipes according to chess pieces......Knight, Jack, Rook, Bishop, Queen, King, and Master. The one in the pic is a "master". The master is a new grade and right now is only available thru McCranie's in that finish. I also have a billiard in that finish too. They are great smoking pipes. They are built with the same quality as a Castello, but without the Castello price tag.

    Because I suffer from TAD and also that it was only $2 an ounce, I got 8 oz of PS English Luxury. The cellar building continues!

    Lil Brown Smoke Shack has free shipping this month for any that didn't know.

    Here is what I ordered:

    1 tin Dunhill My Mixture 965
    1 tin Balkan Sasieni
    3oz peter stokkebye Proper English

    I like that I can order just a few things this month and buy a whole other tin for the same price that shipping would be.

    MIXTURE NO. 79 - 14oz Can MN79 1

    We use Mixture 79 as a hazing ritual for new members in our pipe club haha. I have only tried it that one time but it wasn't half bad IMHO. What are your thoughts?

    Anyways, I took a chance and bought a unopened tin of Dan Tobacco Treasures of Ireland Shannon off Ebay with supposedly 5 years age to it. I hope to also acquire a Peterson Shannon pipe (hopefully through a trade) so I will be able to smoke both on my late mother's birthday in May, whose name was Shannon. She passed away of cancer when I was 12 at the age of 45.


    (Picture from 4noggins as I use Firefox and cannot download the picture of the tin)

    Sounds like a great plan. I don't think I have a Shannon in my collection. Now I gotta check!
