    Reissued Dunhill Blends vs Old Dunhill Blends

    I had the fortune of trying some blends side by side (Nightcap and Early Morning Pipe). Folks are correct in stating they are the same blend. However, just like anything else, the new tins do not have the “aged flavor” you get from a tin that is three years old. I enjoyed both the old and the...

    Unique Ways To Carry Around Pipe Tobacco

    They also sell these reusable tins which come in a variety of sizes. You can choose the tin size that is more appropriate for the amount of tobacco you want to carry. I just went through a can of snuff and the small tin looks like it can hold a bowl of tobacco if pressed in there hard enough...

    Do You Have a Ritual?

    I definitely need to step it up!

    Do You Have a Ritual?

    Ok. So now I want to be part of this ritual club. Saint Peter, tell me what I need to do to step up my sorry routine into a worthy ritual!

    Peretti component tobaccos?

    I understand your point and agree that some tobacco blenders put out a crappy product in fancy packaging and expect us to fall in love with nasty tobacco (again, a subjective statement). However, there are some companies that are putting the care into their blends and it shows. I just wanted to...

    Peretti component tobaccos?

    Good call on not jumping on the Esoterica bandwagon, I am not a fan either. Also, good on you for being a smoker as opposed to a mere hobbyist. I guess in the end we all find a way to be better than the next guy even during a friendly conversation.

    FYI For My Fellow Scotch Lovers

    Well I'll be &@*#$! It seems this is a dispute over airplane sales... What in the ever living $&%@ does selling a plane have to do with scotch or anything else?!?!?!? I attached the one and only article I looked up. Like most Americans I do a quick search, skim over the article and base all of...

    Peretti component tobaccos?

    I have to disagree here Embers. I find there are a few places, although they may use the same leaf as everyone else, that are trying to provide you with a better smoking experience than the rest. Maybe I am a victim of marketing but the blends I have tried from The Country Squire are different...

    Do You Have a Ritual?

    I pack my pipe and fill a glass of water and a smaller cup of a special beverage (Scotch, wine, tequila, tea, soda, etc.) and sit back to enjoy whatever I am smoking. I try to time the drinks to end just as my bowl is ending and be in the house before bedtime. Is that considered a ritual?

    Peretti component tobaccos?

    I have to agree with Greeneyes. It is sad when a cheap pouch blend has more depth and flavor (to me) than the #1 selling aromatic for a company. I have gone through over 10 tins of tobacco from C&D and muscled my way through countless bowls trying to find the good in their product. I found that...

    Frog Morton Opera

    I was hopeful that this would be a nice match or a bucket of good tobacco. However, I too did some research and outside of this post I have not seen, heard, or read about anything like this coming out. I just wanted to throw this out there in case anyone here had heard something about this.

    Frog Morton Opera

    I received this mysterious and enthralling picture and description about Frog Morton Opera. Does anyone have any idea what this is all about? Could this be the start of someone out in the universe re-creating McClelland blends? Have our prayers to the tobacco Gods been answered? Or is it just...

    Hunter Blend

    I don't even know where carter hall is in the store!!! I have focused more on the English blends. However, I will throw a few bucks at a little box of sweet tobacco since so many have recommended it!
