    Tabac Manil’s Le Petit Robin-New

    Apparently it is 30% Semois, and 70% 'blonde' lead. Vincent Manil has apparently been working on the blend for a decade or so. It is named after his son...

    What Did Your Fathers and Grandfathers Smoke?

    My great-grandfather smoked Half and Half. Both of my grandfathers smoked a pipe at some point: one smoked a vanilla cherry blend, and the other smoked either Granger, Half and Half, or Middleton's Cherry, depending...

    Ah Crap, I Like Mixture 79

    I believe that M79 no longer comes in the luxury pouch. It is now packaged in a roll-up pouch a la SWR.

    The 'New' Three Nuns

    This is true, but at least your high price is due to taxes. Ours are simply the manufacturers price. A pouch of St. Bruno Ready Rubbed costs roughly the same here as it does in the UK...and that's with the low US tax. Mac Baren just sets the price high...
