    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2020?***

    Found a few packets of Germain's Rich Dark Flake I'd hidden away and promptly forgotten about. Enjoying some in a Ban Wade 'Chippendale' this morning.

    HU Tuarekh in a sandblasted Inderwick's. Outstanding Balkan mixture.

    Not Sure This Sounds Too Good...

    Not substandard. I smoke it. And it's economical. If I was likening it to a substandard tobacco why would I be interested in trying it? I even said "good quality" above. :coffee:

    Not Sure This Sounds Too Good...

    It looks good to me. They have several "scrap" tobacco offerings that I've been interested in trying. Seems like honest, no frills tobacco and probably good quality at that. I have a feeling it's like the German equivalent of D&R here in the USA.

    US Court of Appeals Unanimously Strikes Down Warning Labels

    I meant more the fact that they left "pipe" out of the equation and don't seem to mention it much (or anywhere that I saw, really) on the website. So my reaction is sort of "what gives?"

    US Court of Appeals Unanimously Strikes Down Warning Labels

    Pipe tobacco is mentioned once. Cigars is mentioned six times. I don't quite understand the rationale behind renaming the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers (IPCPR ) to the Premium Cigar Association (PCA). The "Premium Cigar PAC" and "Cigar Action" [1] ... Perhaps I'm not looking...

    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2020?***

    If I want a morning smoke it has to be at 5am, before my 3 year old son wakes up, otherwise I get pulled around all morning to help search for lost toys. Relaxing bowl of HU Makhuwa in a post-Charatan Ben Wade.

    [FS] Germain / Sobranie, McClelland, Mac Baren HH & Gallaher Tins [4 July 2020]

    McClelland's Red Cake "Re-release" SOLD. Thanks again! I think I probably have more Century than any other blend stored away. I think people read the description and are a bit turned off by it, especially if they've tried Mixture No. 7 (not actually a Germain blend). The first batch sold was...

    Warning Points System

    The discretionary aspect of assignation of points is interesting. In theory a system like this would end the need for "locking" a thread, if applied to that end. Personally I have "ignored" a few members whose responses to other users I consider to have sunk below the threshold of...

    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2020?***

    Enjoying some Royal Yacht (Peterson's) in a "Crosby - Royal St. George" Bing-style pipe. I have been unable to find any information on this pipe unfortunately. I find the Royal Yacht is a great blend for enjoying indoors and sipping slowly, as I'm doing now, but its subtle characteristics...

    Enjoying Our Pipes a Bit Much

    Interesting tip. I wonder if it's a good rinse to "reset" the tongue between cigars. I'll have to give it a try.

    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2020?***

    Smoking some Esoterica Dorchester in a custom billiard by Dave Soucy. Brindle stem, diamond shank, paneled billiard with the paneled angled slightly inward. I sketched it and Dave made it for me with some briar he picked up from Ccheda when we went to the Chicago Show in 2019. Great pipe for...

    Is This Mould?

    Most tobacco IS floor sweepings. :LOL:

    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2020?***

    Giving this Ogden's St. Bruno another try. After several months in the jar it has improved considerably. Some tobaccos, this one in particular, need a little time to open up and come into their own.
