  • Very good show. I enjoyed the pipe reviews very much. I think you are to be commended for recommending a red Virginia blend without an any comparison to McClelland.
    I’ve enjoyed your conversations with Sykes quite a bit. His explanation of where the Laudisi name came from made a lot of sense. A random characters name from a book he was reading. That’s rich!

  • Incredible interview. Looking forward to the rest. Always happy for the tobacco reviews. The rant was disappointing to hear. So it goes. Happy birthday again whenever you actually get to the mailbag. It will be a nice reminder. I hope you enjoyed the little break.
