    Based on Lawrence's apparent love for it, I got a tin of Samuel Gawith Grousemoor to try. I popped the lid and it smell great! Kinda like SG Kendal Cream Flake.

    A good friend of mine was thinning out his cellar so I bought the following from him...

    McClelland 5100 - 1 pound
    C&D Haunted Bookshop - 1.5 pound
    The Malthouse, Founders Reserve - 6 tins

    His cellar got thinner while mine gained a few pounds...

    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.

    I have many unopened tins, probably about 50, and about 10 pounds of bulk tobacco in jars... My most recent tin I opened is 1888 mid day. It's a nice aromatic, I like to smoke it on my way home from work... But sometimes it bites me???

    Let it dry a wee bit and see if that cures the bite.

    Saturday I bought some Germain Royal Jersey: Original Latakia at the local B&M. Yet to try it.

    Now, I've noticed a tendency for this forum to get rather silly.

    Always wanted to try Esoterica (Stonehaven, and Penzance). But I always miss out. By the time I find out they are in stock, I am usually too late. I checked FB and saw that Mars had a cancelled order 30 seconds from Mars posting. So I rush to do the order at Mars and WHAM, I got them both (8 oz each). I am so looking forward to trying these tobaccos.

    I feel sick seeing all that Esoterica, and it not being mine.

    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?

    Jason, I have not had 3 Oaks Syrian before. I was tempted by the review here so I thought I'd try it. I'll let you know how I like it once it gets here.

    I swear this thread always starts something with me. I went out for lunch to the PO mails some stuff and decided to hit up one of the B&M's close by. Got a Tin of Peterson's Irish Oak and 2 oz. of "Harvey's Blend" No idea what it is, but I like the tin note and it's a decent smoke also.

    i went a little crazy Saturday at Carousel and The Wharf.
    at Carousel I grabbed 8 ounces of Meditation, a tin of Sasieni Original Formula Balkan, and a bunch of pipe cleaners.
    Then we went up to The Wharf and I picked up 8oz. of Billy Budd, 4oz. of Latakia, 8oz. of their English/Oriental, A tin of Blakeney's Best Latakia Flake, a tin of Butera's Royal Vintage Latakia No. 1, a tin of Sutliff Private Stock Great Outdoors, and a tin of Wellauer's Latakia.
    I think that was everything.

    I felt the same way, John. Distinguished Gentleman was decent but not something to write home about. I'm letting it age a bit before I pass judgment. The SG blends you listed are all ones I've tried.
    SL was a nice Latakia blend, but there are better which are easier to find and cheaper to buy.
    Grousemoor wasn't as much of an aromatic as I had been expecting and needs more bowls to figure out if I like it.
    The 1792 is tasty but it knocked me on my @$$ with the Vitamin-N content. Smoke on a full stomach for sure!

    I've been successful in staying my TAD attack, but this may put me over the edge. That and the fact that my wife gave me the green light to make an order big enough to get free shipping for our anniversary.

    Also got myself a Vinyl 7 pipe deluxe case. I was getting tired of keeping my pipes in socks when I travelled or went out. Went with vinyl because I'm a college kid, and there is no way I'm spending 90 dollars when I could spent 25 and put the 75 towards a pipe.

    I just bought 4 oz of Black Heath from my local tobacconist. It was about $15, even at bulk. LOL, it's just black cavendish - but I have no idea what brand or where they get it from. I'm afraid if I try an online retailer, I'll end up disliking the black cavendish I buy.

    Well I ordered some GH Bright CR Flake this morning and that order has shipped. A little bit ago I go on the smokingpipes website and noticed they finally got Lancer Slices back in stock. Its not the same has Penzance, but it keeps me from dipping into my Penzance stash. Plus I wanted to beef up the cellar with more Lancer Slices. Tasty stuff and its easily available.

    I just ordered 3 lbs of PS Luxury Bullseye Flakes and 3 lbs of PS Luxury Navy Flake. Should last a couple weeks. I am more than a little concerned about the possibility of that crazy yax bill being signed in October and putting the cost and availability of my favorite blends in the crapper.
