    Esoterica

    HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed

    I love the stuff. Especially on a cold or rainy day. I find a delicious bit of sweetness in with the smokey and sour. Absolutely not bland to my taste whatsoever. One of the few tobaccos I buy by the pound. Remember .... Brobs likes fake bacon made from carrots .... cray

    Mac Baren buying McClelland

    This topic has come up more times that I can count on this forum and I think we all know that 1) The McNeils do not plan on selling their brand or recipes, and 2) Even if they did, the new creations would not be the same as the originals. But seriously, how hard would it be for someone with the...

    How to Best use my Pipe Budget?

    I didn't mean it as broad recommendation to all newbies. I simply said that it's what I would buy if I were starting out all over again. The reason is because Savinelli pipes are reliable, affordable, and I just like the 673 shape. It feels great in hand, has a bowl size that works well for...

    How to Best use my Pipe Budget?

    This is the correct answer. If I was starting from scratch I'd buy a Savinelli Roma 673 and a Missouri Meerschaum Legend 5th Avenue Bent.

    Survivorship Bias in Pipe Accumulating
