  1. Singularis

    Traditional English Blends?

    A stellar under-the-radar blend from C&D: Rajah’s Court. Oriental-forward, bready and figgy Virginias, just the right amount of Latakia.

    Pipe Smoking and Cancer

    Amen. 🙏🏼

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

    C&D Rajah’s Court (Jan 2023) in a Comoy Nougat 102. Loving this oriental-forward mild English.

    Boeing Being Boeing

    Don’t forget that Boeing was involved in the design of the Titan submersible which ended in tragic failure just a year ago. Of course, they disavow, but who believes that? It just makes too much sense that they are connected.

    Coffee Roasting At Home: Advice Please!

    Doing the actual math, if you like high quality, roast-to-order fresh, single-origin coffee, you’re looking at about $28 a pound and that isn’t factoring in shipping. For green coffee, I’m paying about $6.50 a pound after shipping, but once roasted, the cost is closer to $7.75 a pound. That’s...

    Coffee Roasting At Home: Advice Please!

    I have been using secondhand West Bend Poppery II machines for coffee roasting for over 15 years. It has suited me well despite going through as much as 2 lbs of green coffee (= about 1.75 roasted) a week. I spend about two hours a week max roasting coffee. Compared to the same quality coffee...

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

    GLP Stonehenge Flake 2014 in a Wessex 909 (Liverpool? Lovat? I can’t remember)

    Is This Normal?

    The fact that you are a relatively new smoker who enjoys stronger flavored blends like Plum Pudding and taking 1-2 hours to smoke a bowl (with so few relights) means that you are doing some things right, in my opinion. Sitting and slow smoking gets the most flavor and satisfaction out of your...

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    I What year is your tin from? Looks a heckuva lot fresher than mine. Fortunately, despite the corrosion and broken seal, this flake smells heavenly and tastes as good as it smells. One of the smoothest, richest tobaccos I’ve smoked. Hope you are enjoying yours!

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    This tin decided for me to be the next one opened. I was just looking through my drawer of tins and noticed that it was popped. Looking at the inside of the lid, I was worried that the contents would be dried out, but I think it’s still good (probably the perfect hydration, but I’ll be smoking...

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

    About to go out on a walk with my lovely bride in this perfect evening spring weather in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Will be smoking 4noggins Weybridge in my new Chacom 102 Nougat (which came from the same purchase in March).

    Peterson 221 vs 230?

    The 221 should be the heavier pipe, as found in my comparison of Christmas 2023 pipes (and mentioned in my previous post), but I don’t know which pipes in particular the OP was looking at.

    Peterson 221 vs 230?

    Comparing photos of Christmas 2023 pipes in each, the shape is remarkably similar, if not intentionally identical. The difference lies in the bowl size, with the 221 being slightly bigger. The 221 also weighs about .3 ounces more. The lengths appear to be the same.

    Washington Smoking Laws: Advice for Enjoying a Smoke?

    I used to live in Bham but it’s been 8 years since I moved away. Wasn’t aware of a law like that. So you are saying you literally can’t walk down the street and enjoy a smoke? Does the same law apply to smoking actual marijuana?

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    I smoked through a tin from 2008 (November) last year. It was absolute heaven. Will my 8 oz tin from 2021 taste as good? Perhaps, but who knows when I’ll find that out. Could be years. Enjoy!

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

    Finishing a half bowl of 2024 Sansepolcro in my Viking author. Could this be better than the first half last night? Maybe … either way, such a good tobacco blend (if a little on the strong side for me).

    Opening A Tin? Show Us!

    I opened one of my 2024 Sansepolcro tins after the Easter Vigil, but just remembered to show it off here (with a couple flakes missing).

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

    Sansepolcro 2024 in the Randy Wiley tonight. This stuff is pretty strong and natural tasting with a very prominent cigar taste, but I like it lots. A very well constructed blend.

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

    Second smoke in my Chacom Nougat 102 Bent Dublin: some 2016 GLP Stonehenge Flake, which was gifted by @alan73. Good stuff.
