    Drucquer & Sons, Loch Ness, April 8th Release Date

    Time to stock up on Red Rapparee. Don't worry, for that I order from some German suppliers since the shipping is less from there than from USA, so I won't be competing with you for Rattray's lol.

    Drucquer & Sons, Loch Ness, April 8th Release Date

    I've tried everything else from that line except for 1st Amendment, I have to imagine it will be fantastic. I echo the other sentiments on here, though, I did a great job restraining my purchasing habits until I saw this . . . This, gentleman, is the main reason I keep separate bank accounts...

    Anyone Know This Maker?

    Thanks! I managed to find it! Will be buying soon.

    What are You Reading as You Smoke?

    Poker strategy books and sometimes philosophy usually. Although I'm watching Seinfeld reruns now while smoking Kohlhase's da Vinci...an academic, I am not.....lol!

    Anyone Know This Maker?

    I saw this on Le Pipe's webpage and there's no link. I would really like this pipe lol!

    Trafalgar Different Taste?

    I hope that isn't the case I really love that blend. Maybe if I smoke it in a briar it will taste different. Have to brace myself for the worst lol.

    Trafalgar Different Taste?

    Hi All, Has anyone noticed a change in Drucquer and Sons "Trafalgar?" I bought some over a year ago and remember it having more of a "tangy" or "acidic" note creating a bit more of a bite. I know this isn't correct, but to me it smelled a little more like vinegar and had more of a "bite." At...

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    I actually think after hearing so many talk about airing it out and trying it out over time I may rethink my strategy. Obviously start with some of the ones highly recommended but maybe try them all eventually over time. I may also get the 8 ounce tins instead of the 2. I think to really get to...

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    yes it gets quite humid in the summer months and most of the time to be honest. It can get rainy and cold on occasion though.

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    that's super helpful, thanks! Levant is one of my all-time favorites, but it would be great to try something similar with a little more nuance. I enjoy mixing up my blends throughout the day, so this would be quite a good recommendation and one I wasn't considering until now.

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    I love those end of the evening smokes. I just had Nightcap and I feel quite relaxed. One thing I found pipes do that cigarettes don't is put me to sleep. It's quite interesting that the same plant treated differently does different thing. About to put the order in now thanks!

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    Well, I'm a smoker, so not everything I do makes sense. I guess if I was living perfectly I would have gone out for a 5 mile run instead of sitting around smoking pipes and cigarettes all day. No one's perfect...

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    They all look so good! If I ordered this many though in the 8oz they would be confiscated at customs for sure. So envious of being able to order stateside and have no restrictions lol. I meant to stock up before I left but A. I was low on funds and B. was pretty sure if I came into the airport...

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    Cairo is one I was really interested in. Just the name itself makes me want to buy it. I'm hoping it's similar in some ways to some of the other oriental blends I enjoy. I go back and forth during the day between what I want to smoke, and I think some variety in orientals might help me enjoy...

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    This really helps, thanks a bunch everyone! It confirmed a few I was thinking of and I left out some I was on the fence about. Thanks again guys! Always have the best answers here!

    Nicotine Test for Benefits at Work

    I can attest to that, while I didn't work in that field, I have worked overnight where I needed to be awake, alert, and manage others. Smoking was obligatory in that situation.

    G.L. Pease, Where to Start?

    I'm a little overwhelmed by all the delicious-sounding choices from G.L. Pease. I have never found reviews to be too helpful, as the actual experience for each person is different, although there are some benchmarks that everyone can agree on. What seems to help me is comparing them to similar...

    Nicotine Test for Benefits at Work

    I interviewed for a job that specifically asked if you smoked or not and if you did, they wouldn't employ you. They saw a picture of me online with one of my pipes. I didn't get the job. It's none of their business. People have all sorts of unhealthy habits. But you know what? It's my life. I...

    Is a Zippo Pipe Insert Really Better?

    This is a great way to light an everyday blend in my opinion. I used to smoke lockwoods back when I could get it. You could find me all over the place lighting up with my pipe lighter. It's true you're going to taste some fuel, and that's why I say it's good for an everyday blend. If you are...
