    Latakia Paradox?

    Smoking tobacco with Latakia is like smoking tobacco that has already been smoked. Why would I do that? Seems to defeat all the work in growing, drying, and blending tobacco. I'd rather appreciate all that work. Smoking smoke that's already been smoked is a needless redundancy.

    Kentucky Bourbons

    Yup, Evan Williams. Independent distillery. Don't let the very reasonable price of this whisky chase you away. Hits WAY above its weight. Smooth. Only the very most expensive, top-shelf labels are better and, then, not by much.

    Post-Modern Pipe on Ebay

    1. The fact that pipe exists is a warning of the end of all things. 2. The fact that someone listed it on eBay means the end is near. 3. If it sells, it signals the time to permanently move into the safe room.

    How Deep is Your Cellar?

    Well, there are a couple of complications that attend this type of discussion. One, as I've learned about various tobaccos of different types, my tastes have definitely changed. Two, some tobaccos improve dramatically as they age, making them more desirable in the end than could be known in...

    Anyone Use Steel Wool As A Filter?

    Steel wool is preserved with petroleum oil. Therefore, it would not be suitable for placing in a pipe.

    Do You Really Ever Mention Your Favorites?

    KBV darkened the inside of my pipe. Stay away from it. Everyone know that everyone's favorite tobacco is Carter Hall.

    What Causes a Cigar to Burn Up the Center/Core?

    Definitely humidity. Specifically, the cigar was recently put into a humidifier and the outer layers were wetter than the center, which had not yet stabilized. But, one suspects too much humidity where they were placed.

    Keeping the tobacco tamped down so that doesn't happen is almost impossible to do 100%. Loading less tobacco seems to help more than anything. Also, putting 'chapstick' on the rim before lighting up helps. But, if burning leaf springs up to that height, charring will happen. The good news...
