    Impressions Of C&D Sunday Picnic?

    I tend to smoke the same small number of blends, but once in while I take a flier on something new to try. I remember I used to like orientals in some blends, and none that I have now currently contain orientals. On a whim, I've ordered an 8 oz can of Sunday Picnic, which appears to be...

    Wilke Wall Street in a cob before going off to practice for our Memorial Day ceremonies (in my case, firing squad).

    ***What Are You Smoking, May 2024?***

    Old Joe Krantz in a cob. Thinking back, I would wager that of all the blends I've smoked, OJK is probably the one I've smoked the most. It's a great blend IMO, and just hits all the buttons for me. I'd be interested to hear if there's something along the same lines that I just don't know...

    Well now I have to get Wallace Flake too! Thanks

    Stirling Flake == Irish Flake?

    Interesting. So do you know if Stirling Flake was already being produced contemporary to Irish Flake? Stirling Flake is now a Rattray's branded offering so we have a bit of a rabbit hole of course. Such is the current state of tobacco offerings as everything is consolidating into a few...

    Stirling Flake == Irish Flake?

    Irish Flake used to be one of my staple tobaccos back around '05 to '15 or so. I stopped smoking pipes for a long time and have in the past year happily gotten back into it. I tried the Irish Flake of today, and it seemed "off". I don't have the most sophisticated palate for pipe tobaccos...

    ***What Are You Smoking, May 2024?***

    I still have some of that along with an unopened tub! I do miss it. I'm a little disappointed with it in the aged form though. Understandably, aging took away a lot of the spicy bite it had when fresh, which was my favorite aspect of it. It's still a pretty nice smoke though.

    Welcome! I just returned from a trip to your fine country a couple weeks ago (Stockholm). As to an aromatic tobacco, the only one I found I enjoy (a lot) is Homeward Bound (Two Friends Tobacco), but I'm not sure that's considered an aromatic, maybe more like a crossover. That one I would...

    I've recently rekindled my love affair with Semois finishing up a brick of Reserve du Patron (Tabac Manil). I just received my brick of Le Petit Robin, and I'm enjoying it in a cob with a lager on the side currently.
