    Pipe Smoking Musicians

    I've been trying to research what his favorite tobacco was. We all know he liked the straight apple shape.

    Info on Sugar Barrel Tobacco, Please.

    You are correct. I just smoked a big bowl of 2014 Middleton Sugar Barrel in my Vintage Dr. Grabow Royal Duke saddle bit billiard. I tried to find a good match with no avail. The Sutliffs Sugar Barrel match and the sweet Cask is nothing like Middleton's. I suspect that they are both the same...

    That Old School Aroma

    I believe you with that. I know that some of the older blends that aren't around anymore used it as a vanilla flavoring. Half and Half had it as a condiment as well. So did Heine's Blend back in the 40s and 50s. Another flavor that is in these old estate pipes is Musk. Mixture-79 had musk.

    Lane Limited RLP-6 and a Smile

    Captain Black doesn't have their bulk line anymore. When they moved from Tucker GA. to Denmark they axed a few products. I've never had 7 seas gold. I've only had their cherry and it was terrible. MacBaren doesn't agree with my tongue. Anything from MacBaren bites the crap out of me except for...

    Lane Limited RLP-6 and a Smile

    Sorry for the late response, been working a lot. For your question, the MV and CBG is not sweeter then RLP-6 in the sense of room note and mouth feel, but it's sweeter in the "tang" and bready notes. RLP-6 is Burley and Cavendished green river Burley with some virginia. The MV and CBG is...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    Hey, I actually smoke Winchester right out of the jar. I don't have an issue with needing to dry it out. Could be too that I've gotten an older batch maybe. I usually dry out flakes and Lakelands. Winchester and Pegasus are my main smokes right now and they are pretty much ready to go from the...

    Lane Limited RLP-6 and a Smile

    HGL is fantastic. I get 8 ounces at a time then add two ounces of my RLP-6 stash to it. Makes the room note better for the family. I've had RLP-6 and Captain Black Original bulk blend side by side. I miss the CB bulk. It is different, not by much but they definitely looked like a different cut...

    Which Tobacco after Which Meal?

    Pegasus, Winchester and Big N' Burley will give you more than enough nicotine!

    Lane Limited RLP-6 and a Smile

    MV-1000 is basically Captain Black Gold, but it's not lol. If you were to smoke MV and CB gold side by side you would not tell a difference. The CB gold bites a little to where MV doesn't. But to me they taste and smell the same.

    Peterson University Flake review

    I've liked University Flake for years. For me it has a blueberry aroma and taste. Not heavy but any means, but it's definitely there. I have to smoke it in a Savinelli or Rossi because of the need of the charcoal filter. I get tongue bite very easily. Has nothing to do with cadence, or packing...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    I have a pound aging. I need to order another pound to smoke. I'm a burley smoker through and through, Prince Albert was my everyday for years and Sir Walter Raleigh regular before that. Red Virginia used to give me the spins, but I started smoking Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake so I think I...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    Neither did I Grangerous. Virginia tends to destroy my tongue and the roof of my mouth if I don't smoke it with either a 9mm or 6mm charcoal filter. Winchester on the other hand is smooth as butter on raisin and cinnamon toast. My youngest really likes the smell of it when I smoke it. When he's...

    Red Virginias

    Man, I bet that stuff is delicious ten fold now with some age on that red Virginia!

    Unflavored Blends with Pleasing Room Note

    I have a feeling you really like SWRA lol. It was my second all day smoke. I'm pretty sure Carter Hall was my first everyday smoke. But I know I smoked SIr Walter Raleigh aromatic for a few years and nothing else. I still have a few unopened tubs in my cellar. After smoking Pegasus and...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    I'm thinking the same thing. I am REALLY digging Winchester. But I believe the red Virginia has a molasses casing and the unsweetened black Cavendish has a liquor flavoring or something it's steamed with. This blend is too smooth like you said to be pure.

    Seeking Natural Flavor

    I'd say try Cornell and Diehl's Winchester. Red Virginia and unsweetened black cavendish. All tobacco has a casing. If it didn't, it would be bitter. Most of the natural tasting tobacco is cased with liquorice. Not for flavor, but as a neutralizer, it makes the tobacco taste natural. Anyway...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    That is so weird that you mentioned how it has almost cigar notes to it. I thought the very same thing. I can't stop sniffing the jar! It is such a great blend. I've been cellaring Winchester and Pegasus, deep cellaring it. I don't ever want to be without it. I can't say this enough, you were...

    C&D Winchester & Others

    I got my love of Pegasus straight now. I smoke it as is and love it. I buy it by the pound, no more adding vanilla Cavendish to it. I bought four ounces of Winchester because of a friend who switched from Velvet to Winchester raved about it. I loved it from bowl one. Now my main smokes are...

    Sam Gawith Burnt Ends

    Funny you said that about St. Bruno. I'm with you on that. I spent 18 bucks for tins of Flake and for some reason I dig the RR better. Seems like it has more flavor. Plus, there are times when I catch a half a flake in the pouch.

    Question about Prince Albert

    I've still have a pouch and a 10oz tub of Middleton's Cherry. I smoked though 8 pouches in the last couple years that a friend sent me. Another friend sent me a generous sample of 1970s Cherry Blend and when I tell you it was fantastic, I'm not lying! The blend definitely changed throughout the...
