    Brands and Shapes-Why Do You Like Them?

    I like Savinellis (most of my collection), and Stanwells, some BenWade freehands for a large bowl and long reflective smoke, Grabows for the quality of the early sandblasts and consistently great smoke, and particularly in bent bulldog shapes in most of my pipes. Bent Bulldogs because of the...

    What Blend Have You Discovered This Year?

    Three for me--Stonehaven, Old Dark Fired, and Bold Kentucky. I'm a new fan of these three, especially the Old Dark Fired. Guess I discovered Kentucky blends this year. Also , most recently, discovered McClellan 40th Anniv. Looks like it's been a good 2017!

    Next Single Malt To Buy?

    Aberlour A'bunadh--aged in sherry casks Double wood Hedonism--from Compass Box, a blended scotch, but uniquely as good as, and better than many single malts.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Turkey's in the cooker, family on the way over, morning in the kitchen with my wife, clean pipes in the rack ready for after dinner smoking. We've all got lots to be thankful for, don't we? Happy Thanksgiving to all!
