    What Are You Drinking - September 2020

    I start off the day with some fruit juice, then coffee, then ice water, then ice water, then ice water, then some more coffee, (2 cups at a time each time) then more ice water.

    Perique Sourcing

    I've had blending perique from C&D and McLelland's, and I still have some of the latter. I often use Picayune in lieu of perique for a nice spicy jolt to some VA or other mixes.

    Greetings from Ontario, Canada

    I fought with tobacco/nicotine most of my life, until I found pipe smoking after i'd retired. Now, I feel a sense of gratitude for the ability to enjoy my addiction, which, I feel, has moderated along with the method of delivery. win/win! welcome, and congrats!

    Cheap Briars

    I have several Grabow's and enjoy them all. I have them from the time they were made in Chicago to when they moved to Sparta. Have yet to smoke a new one. I think $20 is the most I've paid, and I've got a few that were really just add ins with a couple of the racks I'd won.

    ***What Are You Smoking, Sept. 2020?

    Just in from my second bowl of the morning, with walks, and smoked one of my best pipes. It's a Linkman's Dr. Grabow Supreme, Rhodesian (straight) with the paddle stinger, in a very smooth finish. Burned some D&R mix consisting of 3 Sails, Two Timer and seasoned with Ramback Balkan.

    High Quality Bulk Tobacco

    Well, if nobody else is gonna do it I will. I pay about $1.25 an oz for what I consider to be tobacco of highest quality from D&R. I buy some of their blends and some of their primarily single varietal blends and make my own 'compositions'. The blends of Russ Oulette are outstanding and some...

    Becoming A Codger

    High-End Pipes - Do They Improve the Smoking Experience?

    the only high end pipe I have was a gift by the maker. he's been making pipes now for about 5 yrs and has steadily improved all aspects of his craft. in the beginning, he focused on the guts and rightly so. The pipe he made for me was made last yr or so and shows out to be a bowl that won't go...
