    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...

    Current, Interesting Pipe Shops in London, UK

    Hi bob. We are in a very sad state of affairs as far as shops go unfortunately. But, shops to visit in London would be - JJ Fox I would say is a must visit I would say. Lots of history there. I believe they still have the chair in the room Winston Churchill used to sit in and smoke. Also st...

    Does Price Make a Pipe???

    I don't have anything real expensive but I did think that money would buy me a better smoke. I spent £250 on a Dunhill and sold it 2 months later. Thank goodness they hold value reasonably! I gave it a good go, I'm a heavy smoker. For me, I still went back to 3 pipes I have which were basket...

    Altadis 965 match

    Very well put Mr novelist! I see what they're doing by aligning themselves with Dunhill but its actually a very nice smoke on its own merits. It's a good advertising ploy. After all I would probably have never tried it before had it not been likened to a blend I enjoy. Sitting here just at the...

    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...

    Help Me Chose a Vintage Please

    My options have changed somewhat anyway. I don't know if there is a translation problem being a German site but on further reading it said not for consumption. In which case, why would anyone pay $90 for a 40 year old unsmokeable tin of nightcap? I've gone with pipes and cigars and bought some...

    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??

    Well pitchfork ( love the name!) when I purchased it, it was in a Comoys cabinet in a newsagents selling a few blends. I asked the guy "are these comoys" and got a "yes yes sir, comoys very good" Now they were not marked comoys so I pursued it with the guy who assured me that the pipes I bought...

    Today's deliveries of smokey treats!

    I should never have boasted of my haggling skills so soon! It would appear after an extensive net search that the two pipes are not comoys! Rather god ole basket pipes so I've probably over paid by£5-10. Or have I? I like the look and feel of both and certainly the bulldog(?) smokes well so at...
