    Massachusetts Flavored Tobacco Ban

    I just called Peretti's this afternoon, and here's the scoop regarding the tobacco ban. They said they can't say for certain how this ban will affect them, but as they read it now, they think they would have to stop selling about 50% of their blends. I imagine it would be similar for Watch City...

    Cornell & Diehl Unique Smell?

    Okay, I'm not the most experienced pipe guy here, but I'm noticing something that I haven't seen mentioned. I've tried three tins from C & D: Haunted Bookshop, John Marr, and now Redburn. With each of these, I'm noticing this fairly unique smell that I haven't noticed in any other brand of...

    How Many Tobaccos in Your Rotation?

    Okay, so I've been smoking a pipe, albeit somewhat infrequently, for a little over two years. I've made it a point to try a whole range of tobaccos, all kinds of aromatics, English and Virginias. I think I've tried about 15 different ones so far. A couple of them have stuck out for me as...

    Another Newbie

    Hi all, So, I'm 51, and have been smoking a pipe for just a couple years. I've been lurking here a while, and decided to join. Prior to my pipe, I had virtually no experience with tobacco--never smoked a cigarette, never chewed, and tried a cigar once and hated it. So, why did I take up a...
