    GQ Tobaccos - Breakfast Blend - new uk blender

    Well new blender is not entirely accurate. The chap has been blending Guantleys blends for a few years. I'm sorry I'm not a great review writer. I'll try my best. Breakfast end is described by the blender as an oriental and it's, knowingly, my first oriental. To look at, it's a ready rubbed...

    Altadis 965 match

    I've just received some of this in bulk and calling it a "match" is a bit strong. That's not to say its not a very nice tobacco. I would say similar to 965 is a fair description. In a nutshell this will be my all day and all night smoke now. It's deep and tasty. Pleanty of Latakia a d a...

    Cigar Tobacco in a Pipe?

    I've purchased a few cigars and I've just lit one which s so tight it's unsmokeable! I once read, on here I think, of someone's grandmother clipping off a half inch of her husbands cigar and smoking it in a briar. What do you guys think? Would you give it a go? Prepare the cigar and pop it in a...

    Pipe Shape Help??

    Afternoon gentlemen and gentleladies. What shape would you say this pipe is? I would say a bent brandy or bulldog? I like what's been done on the bottom. It's not a "sitter" but it's nice and flat. Have a looksee

    Corncobs are Under Rated

    I love my corn cob pipes, I have 6 that i use daily.

The other 5 i own i use for when a new order of tobacco...

    English Without Spice?

    Afternoon chaps. I'm not a lover at all of aromatics. I just don't get on with them. It seems though, all the blends I buy are spicy. Now I don't mind this but I don't particularly want that pepper tang every smoke. Bearing in mind I'm ltd to uk purchases, which non aro blends could you...

This corner of the earth (uk) young men travel to places like Ibiza, Magaloof or Amsterdam for mad clubbing and fornication!

    Picked Up 3 Meers

    Today I went to pick up a pipe pouch I'd ordered from a collectibles shop and the owner asked if I'd like to buy 3 carved unsmoked meerschaum pipes he bought for display in his home in the 70s. Would I like to look at pipes? Lol! What a question! I'll keep the lady, she's kinda hot but the...

    First Pipe Making Attempt

    Here is my first attempt at sculpting a pipe from a kit from Greece. It's nowhere near perfect but this is not only my first attempt at pipe making, it's my first woodworking attempt ever! It was a learning curve and hopefully my next will be neater. I'm not going to stain or polish it. I want...

    Does Age Give a Pipe $ Value?

    Ive purchased an estate pipe, a Bewlay which is stamped 1921 in the silver marks. Ive found out a little. Bewlay were popular and bought out by Imperial tobacco so they must have been significant. Does the fact this pipe is nearly 100 years old make it valuable? Collection value is high for me...

    Cheap n Nasty to a Good Little Smoker!

    I bought this pipe from amazon and although it was ok to smoke, it looked horrendously chap! Almost like it had some sort of plastic coating on it. So, being as I'm the new owner of a dremmel and I'm going to be using it on estate and hobby pipes, I thought I'd try t out on a pipe I don't mind...
