    Recent TAD Pick-Ups

    I have not, but I am adding it to the list, thanks for the recommendation! The 2oz bulk blends are ones I have not tried yet, but saw many recommend them.

    What Blend do You Hate?

    I am still relatively new to pipes and pipe tobacco so I have yet to come across a blend that I "hated" or was repulsed by. Very interesting to see the HB love/hate relationship. Add me to the "love it" list. I have preferred HB over Pegasus, but I really enjoy both.

    Awesome! I think it will make my bulk list. I purchased quite a few tins during the last C&D tin sale. I believe I bought 3, perhaps 4, tins of Habana Daydream.

    FOMO - Frog, Esoterica &?

    I'm still new to pipes and pipe tobacco, so I have been experimenting and learning. A friend from another forum (the one who told me about this forum) was very generous in introducing me to the hobby and sent a "welcome package," if you will. He included some McClelland 5100 Red Cake and it blew...

    One Tobacco To Rule Them All

    I am still learning and experimenting, being relatively new to pipe smoking. At the moment, I have really been enjoying Peterson Nightcap and Plum Cake Bourbon Barrel Aged. Having to choose between those two, I would pick the Plum Cake Bourbon.

    Looking For A Really Good Pipe Lighter

    Vector Pipe lighter has been pretty good to me for about 10 years. I did break the tamper trying to pry open a tin just recently so that was a bummer.
