    Pre Packing Your Pipe

    Greetings all longtime no see. Been lurking for a few weeks after a substantial hiatus and was prompted by this thread. Surprised no one mentioned DGT? I only occasionally DGT but can’t honestly say I could tell a difference when I do? Is this not a thing anymore? OP experiment a little and see...

    Was going through my pipe bag and it's a good thing I did- found 2 more blends I meant to try while out and about. Good thing the box hasn't been sealed yet. Smoking some Peterson Irish Oak in guess what... A Pete. My first impression of this is that it is very similar to Haddo's Delight. I went...

    Alright folks, it's been a short 2 weeks, but the time has come to pass the box. Was not able to sample as much as I'd like to have, but I bagged up some blends for later. I also tossed in some more mylars. There were some big named lat blends I've wanted to try and am always reminded that...

    2015 Box Pass Thread

    Just fired up a bowl of Pirate's Alley. The description says it's a va/per but I'm getting a more creamy, sweet, nutty flavor. Found online descriptions of it being a va/per/bur. Ok That makes more sense. It's been about 10 years since I've had CH, but this reminds me of what I think CH tastes...

    WP- daimyo nailed it. Tin note was all raisins that translated to a deep but soft, sweet smoke. Sliced it thin and rubbed it out and was surprised at how light some of the layers were in that dark brown plug.

    Coconut twist- really wanted to like this, but am really happy i got to sample this before buying. I've heard that that the sweet flavorful coconut was only present during the beginning of the bowl. Was able to detect it throughout the bowl and was waiting for it to disappear. I guess I was...

    Tailgating at a Brad Paisley show. The OGS is just shy of mummy dust. Still an ok smoke but I think it told me just enough to let me know I don't ever need to buy. Catching a pretty good buzz, can't remember if I loaded some Davidoff Flake Medallions or Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rollls. Either way...

    2015 Box Pass Thread

    So the boxes (yes 2!) have arrived! Holy smokes! So the first thing I did was pull a nice piece of Cotton Boll to chew on while I went through the contents. I don't usually use smokeless, but when I do I prefer a finer cut dip to plugs or chew. I am interested to see how this stuff smokes...

    D'oh! Woke up in excitement only to find that the boxes were sent certified and no one was available to sign. Guess I'll have to wait one more day to pick them up at the PO
