    Road Trip 6,000 miles...and found Boswells

    We left Ellensburg, Washington for North Carolina to see my wife's grandparents...they both turned 100 years old the same week. On our trip, visited as many tobacconists and pipe stores as allowable. After snow and lighting (at the same time) and plenty of tornado and hail warnings, we arrived...

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

    Had me Ten Russians this afternoon, and Nightcap this evening. Both delicious.

    Nicotine or Relaxation?

    Choosing the pipe, opening the jar and sniffing, packing the bowl and lighting the tobacco while watching the flakes curl and brighten. The first sip followed by another relight, and relaxing knowing everything is okay for as long as the bowl burns, and afterwards. I admit, I like the high...

    What Cigar Are You Smoking? 2024

    Can anyone suggest some cigars I might like given my piping tastes? I love me some dark, strong blends like Ten Russians, Nightcap, War Horse Green, 1792, but also Maltese Falcon, among others. Haven't smoked a cigar in probably twenty years, so it's all foreign to me. Any recommendations...

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

    Man on a mission right there!

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

    Just had me a bowl of War Horse Green in my Missouri Meerschaum, my absolute favorite blend these days. Found a tin of 1792 this week and had me a bowl yesterday. Very good! Heavy and full, with a satisfying room note.

    Advice on Nasal Snuff

    Take a pinch slightly smaller than the size of a pea, and bring this slightly inside toward FRONT of nose. Take light and gentle sniff as if you're smelling a flower. Do this once, twice, thrice for each nostril as tolerance builds. Word of warning, snuffing all day and having a nicotine heavy...

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    Update for anyone curious. Doctor said everything is good, nasal snuff is virtually harmless, and piping ain't an issue as long as I continue moderately (according to my unique situation). All this said, I’ve determined my specific tongue bite is, in fact, caused by an (allergic?) reaction...

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    Yes, nasal snuff. Maybe you're right - - snorting too hard, too much. Or, too much menthol.

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    Forgive me, I'm just asking out of ignorance. I understand that tobacco carries risks, and I'm perfectly okay with it. What I'm asking is whether tongue bite itself, over time, contributes to anything serious.

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    I'll snuff and occasionally find it on my tongue.

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    It's quite possible I'm overdoing it. I have a variety of snuffs, but I wonder if it's the menthol ones. I've been taking a lot of menthol snuffs lately, throughout the day.

    Tongue Bite from Snuff? And, Can It be Dangerous?

    Title edited for caps. and moved from Pipe Questions to General. Good evening, gentlemen - - Since October, I've gotten into the wonderful hobby of snuff. My experiences have been very, very positive. So many 'journeys' to explore with the various recipes. However, I seem to suffer tongue...

    Supreme Snuff

    Far and above my favorite remains Hedges. It really wakes me up, hits the spot, transports me onto a windy, icy mountain after ascending trees. Ozona Type-C has a medicated cherry lip balm scent that reminds me of my father. Thor's Hammer gives the impression of walking a musty stable with fresh...

    Status of 1792

    I'm still waiting for some to come in stock. Been waiting half a year, it seems, for 1792 and his brothers to return.

    Birthday Presents to Yourself

    Gentlemen, what tobacco related treats do you want for your next birthday? Me, I turn 44 years old Friday, Oct. 27th. I'll be grabbing my first Peterson, a rusticated Pub pipe and have myself a bowl of Ten Russians. In the meantime, I also received my first (ever) batch of nasal snuff. What a...

    Anyone use Nasal Snuff?

    Just received my first order of snuff...and gave it a few pinches...and my goodness, it is exactly what I've been searching after, what with the amazing aromas and opening of sinuses and zing. Really, really remarkable and incredible. My goodness. Thanks to all of you who provided enough...

    The Most Disappointing Tobacco

    Golden Slices is disgusting. Tastes like unsweetened ice tea. Great if you like that, but I'll pass. Not a fan of White Knight, either.

    What Music Are You Listening To? October, 2023

    I wouldn't call it music, but it sounds like my wife is calling me for dinner.

    Iconic Movies that Disappoint.

    Oh, I really enjoy watching the African Queen. Maybe because Bogart reminds me of my grandfather. Always a sad face, and always a cigarette hanging from his mouth.
