    How Dry? A Good Place To Start

    Dry as dry. My preference has evolved, but it was not without a lot of trial and error. Spent several long years until I was satisfied or at least adjusted to my method and means of attaining enjoyment. As an example, I may pack a pipe with tobacco that I feel is dry "enough" and I'll leave...

    Candy Like Sweet Aromatics Recommendations Please

    Heading to Germany on Saturday

    Lived in Germany for ten plus years and spent time in Berlin on several occasions, my first when it was divided. Very pipe friendly and many different blends available at the large and small tobacconists. Miss it, but I'll get back there eventually.
