    The Right Pipe for Smoking Licorice Tobacco

    I love Gawith Dark Flake Scented and Brown Flake Scented. Just smoked some last night. I usually use my small Dunhill group 2. Mainly, because they are so bold and strong.

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    Hu Balkan Passion. My first time having any Hu blend. This is a good, sweet latakia blend. I'm really enjoying it. Thank you onepyrotec. Now I'm on the hunt for Zulu.

    Request for an Oriental

    Samuel Gawith Skiff. It has maybe 30% Latakia and Virginias, the rest is all spicy/floral Orientals. Let it dry for like 2 days. It's great. Also, McConnell's Oriental and EMP are pretty good too. A little under the radar, Mac Baren's Balkan has a strong, buttery oriental presence-a favorite of...

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    Before anyone says anything, sorry for the crappy phone pics. No, that is not mold. At first, I thought about keeping it to 9 or 10 years, but nah. The reds are already shining. For anyone wondering, the newest Quiet Nights has a more blueish hew to it. Perhaps more latakia and more of the red...

    Yeah, honestly I don't see what the big deal is about it. I'd much rather smoke a lakeland cross-over or just go for a regular English over it.

    Anyone have Dunhill innertubes?

    Problem has been resolved thanks to my friend bayareabriar. It has the wider drilling for that certain kind of tube. Was unsmokeable before and now it's a great smoker!

    How Much is Too Much?

    I too find it a bit excessive, personally. Just remember to slow down and you will enjoy more, no matter how many you smoke. I find that if I smoke more than 3 or 4, I don't enjoy it as much as my pallete gets overwhelmed and the nicotine isnt as enjoyable. It isn't as much to look forward to...

    Favorite Home Blend Recipes?

    I like mixing in small amounts of Gawith and Hoggarth Dark Flake Scented (10-20%) with Gl Pease Englishes. At first, I did it to see how it adds strength and to see how the licorice topping would be with latakia. As it turns out it's extremely good.

    Instant Reaction To Peterson’s Early Morning Pipe

    Yeah, I don't have any problems with it either other than the Orientals in it can be spicy. Pretty good stuff. Never have thought it to have a high Virginia content and to be pretty smooth.

    I enjoy it as an aromatic. It isn't super complex. I wish it had some Oriental content. Probably my favorite aromatic, but I don't smoke those often.

    Pipe Tobacco Additives.

    There is no doubt that raw tobacco is harsh and almost unpalatable when fresh.
