    Bohemian Scandal Alternatives

    Never had scandal, loved renaissance. Ultimately, I just miss the taller tins...silly, but I liked them.

    For the Coffee Heads

    press coffee, all day, pretty bold, black. I picked up the habit from working in a couple record shops and the record library of my college radio station. Is Cafe Bustelo a tin can variety or is it a premium coffee? I'm always trying new coffee.

    tobaccoreviews.com updated website

    I liked the format. Id like to be able to search by style or get similar mixture recommendations to review. Thats such a nebulous topic though. If P&T stands for pipesandtobacco.com I worry. They have one of the least attractive websites I've ever seen. I already don't like the new banner on...

    stanwell

    I bought my first stanwell a few weeks ago. It's as mechanically well crafted as any Castello or, Dunhill I've ever owned. I'll be buying a 2nd of the same pipe for certain. (i made the mistake early on of buying pipes that I though others would see as cool or wonderful. I ended up with...

    July 2011 - What are you Smoking?

    PS English Oriental Supreme/MC 5110 I had mixed up probably a couple ounces of this and it been great, though I feel guilty mixing blends...as if I'm offending the creators.

    Lucite vs. Vulcanite

    Prefer the Lucite stems for looks, vulcanite for feel. The Castello lucite mix is the perfect middle ground.

    Jeff Gracik Pipe Making Demo at the Kansas City Pipe Show 2011

    Are there any photos of the finished pipe?

    Picture of a pleasant evening.

    Anyone else think (even with a well used stem) that this is one hell of a basket pipe? Oval Shank, saddle bit, nice bend, rounded top rather than flat machined rim...looks like a nice "old" Stanwell at the eye test.

    What is your perfect smoking setting?

    anywhere I can relax and its not too windy. for me smoking outside is a marital requirement. I really enjoy sitting on my deck, or my father-in-laws deck. my all time favorite though is in a lawn chair perched on the dam of the pond at my childhood home. last summer I went out there to...

    June 2011 - What are you Smoking? II

    5110 in a Sara Eltang. I like this stuff, just wish it was cut a little more 'ribbon-y' (admittedly I'm deep in a stretch of trying all unclearthurs posts of MC and PS mixtures)

    Ready at last to move out of aromatics. But where to start?

    I second 5110, its incredible how much flavor it has, while not being overwhelming either in nicotine or body.

    cellaring tobacco

    I've been packing bulks into 4oz 'jelly' canning jars. Hold about 2oz, interested to see how they age compared to big jars or tins.

    New FDA Labels

    I wonder if there will be any litigation as a result of this. Very rarely if ever have label requirements included "pictures". If not just plain text warnings have included pretty benign cartoon imagery. In this case federal agencies are forcing private businesses to included graphic photos...

    G.L. Pease Haddo's Delight

    Great write up. Va. and VA/Per reviews always get me excited try them, but then I almost as quickly realize I may never find a true Va blend that I can enjoy. If I give them another shot, this will be a great place to start.
