    What Has The Most Age In Your Cellar?

    A perfectly intact 67 +/- year old tin of Cope's Escudo, followed by a few 56-year-olds, half a dozen 35-year olds, a pile of 21-year-olds...and then some newer stuff. Oldest non-Escudos are McCranies '83s, and a bar of 5 Brothers from the '20s that's just for display.

    2015 New York Pipe Show Report from Romeowood

    Errata to report: I misspelled Hank Saatchi's name, and had the wrong information regarding Amorelli pipes. Hank and Simone are now the U.S. representatives of Amorelli pipes. I will now turn in my roving reporter's card :oops:

    2015 New York Pipe Show Report from Romeowood

    Yes, Les, there was some pixel enhancement--Kevin trying to salvage my amateur snapshots :oops: I really need to take a photography class.... Also, you are no longer allowed to enter any pipe shows, dinners, events, or festivals until I have been there at least thirty minutes or my money runs...
