    My First Castellos

    I have only one Castello, a Natural Vergin kkkk that I bought from Castellana's shop while in Florence back in 2016. It's by far my favorite pipe. I will likely buy others at some point.

    Social or Anti-Social Pipe Smoker?

    Being an only child and a retired engineer I'm not known for my social skills. I don't mind having company while I smoke but I don't actively seek it out. I'm not a "socialist."

    Favourite Drink Pairing?

    Coffee in the morning. Depending on my mood it's either Pepsi or any one of a number of flammable liquids in the evening (Scotch, Bourbon, rye, etc.).

    Pipe Smokers Who have Settled on a Few Standbys

    95% of my smokes are 1792 Flake, Irish Flake, and University Flake. I'll occasionally light up some Luxury Navy Flake and Haddo's Delight. I haven't felt the need to try new blends in years.

    What I have learned in my 1st month here

    +1. There's already enough complexity in my life, I don't need to drag it into my leisure activities. The only things I obsess about while smoking are keeping ashes out of my scotch and not setting myself on fire. Everything else is burdensome. Regarding strong opinions and arguments, sorry...

    Anniversary Kake Question

    Your description does not fit Anniversary Kake. AK is crumbly, and is easily broken up with the fingers.

    Your favorite tonquin tobacco?

    I'll cast another vote for 1792. It's the only tonquin flavored tobacco I've ever had, and the only one I know of. What are some others?

    MATCHES!

    Generally I will use matches when my butane or Zippo runs out of fuel in the middle of a smoke and I'm too lazy at that moment to get out of the chair and refill. I prefer paper matches to sticks because they burn a bit slower than the wooden ones.

    Momoyama

    One of my sons visited Japan a few years ago and brought me back a pouch of Momoyama. I don't recall which variety it was, but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't made my Mac Baren. I found it to be quite an enjoyable aromatic that I would buy here if it was available, but like mso I don't think it...

    Legislation Filed 02-10-2017 - Increase Tax On Pipe Tobacco to $24

    Let's see now...eliminate tobacco and legalize marijuana. It makes a lot of sense from the nanny state's point of view. A stoned population will be much easier to control.

    Who'd Want To Be A Celebrity?

    I am the kind of person who couldn't attract attention even if I were to set fire to myself in a crowded room, and I like it that way. Invisibility is a blessing.
