    ***What Are You Smoking, July 2021?***

    Haven't posted since my buddy, BROBS got the boot.. 😥 But I'm currently smoking '19 CRF in a Pioneer Block meer Calabash that he gifted me out of the kindness of his great big animal lovin' heart! Here's to BROBS💚 Back to lurking for me. Sayonara, folks.

    VaPers as Fruity as Dorchester?

    I have a tin that I haven't opened yet, but I've been told it has a citrus/apricot topping by a few friends and trusted forum members.

    Sutliff Crumble Kake Red VA...Thoughts?

    The vinegar smell will mostly dissipate. I enjoy the Sutliff Crumble Kakes, especially with a year or more age. They don't really reach the heights of McC Red Cake, but they're still pretty tasty, and probably the closest thing out there. Not gonna have the deeply fermented McCatsup thing...

    MacBaren HH Pure Virginia... I Think I Got Screwed

    My experience with HH Pure is they were the most perfect, narrow, stick o' gum lookin' flakes I've ever seen. But I've never seen it in bulk, so I can't speak to that. Doesn't seem right, though.

    Do You Sell Your Estates Or Use Them Up?

    I've never burned out a briar, and I can't make myself throw something away if it still works well, so I clean them up and give them to new pipe smokers or friends with too few pipes! Also, a Lakeland lover like myself can always just dedicate a pipe to a single blend and not worry about...

    ***What Are You Smoking, June 2021?***

    Built Lego forts with my youngest 'til my whole ass went numb. The teen is lurking about angstily with his headphones on, listening to old metal or some weird stuff that I'm too old to even know about. GF is half-drunk, asleep with her head on the dog and the cat on her leg. For the moment, all...

    Show Us Your Most Quintessential Billiard Pipe

    It's a surprisingly loose designation. Many of my Billiards borderline Brandy or Apple shapes, but aren't quite exaggerated enough to be considered that. The second one is the traditional cylindrical "Dutch" Billiard shape, but Oom Pauls and Hungarians are technically in the Billiard family...

    What's Your Favorite Pipe for Backpacking or Camping?

    My hiking/outdoor pipes are either cobs or Crowns (relatively inexpensive Italian made briar basket pipes with non-vulcanite stems). Cobs are great because of their light weight and ease of replacement if something were to happen. They also float, so that's a plus. These days, I try my best to...

    Hay & Molasses...

    He said *or a 10 year aged VA. GH Kentucky Nougat is a nougat flavored aromatic that tastes like that straight out of the bag. For molasses, SWR comes to mind. MacBaren Navy Flake. Maybe Stonehaven. And, as much as I hate to recommend a blend that I already have trouble getting my hands on...

    Fuel Flavored Tobacco

    Wait, is this not the diesel/coal/biofuel aromatics thread? I'm lost. Again.

    Fuel Flavored Tobacco

    Current Sobranie White. 10Russians, GH Balkan Mix, and sometimes, if the stars align just right, fresh Penzance. Maybe SG Black XX, depending on how it hits you.

    Where Can I Order Condor?

    Y'all makin' me wanna slice into my last lil chunk of Irish plug from Simon's stash... I mean, is the old Gallaher's stuff better? Sure. It has a certain.. something. Is that certain something the glandular secretions of goats? Who knows. All I know is I'd gladly smoke either with some...
