    How Dry? A Good Place To Start

    Dry as dry. My preference has evolved, but it was not without a lot of trial and error. Spent several long years until I was satisfied or at least adjusted to my method and means of attaining enjoyment. As an example, I may pack a pipe with tobacco that I feel is dry "enough" and I'll leave...

    Your Preferred Method of Smoking Flakes

    Allow the flakes to dry if overly moist, then break it down into small bits. Scoop them into the pipe and layer and tamp until full. Alternatively, allow the flakes to dry, but still pliable; then fold and stuff,

    Question For Everyone New And Old.

    Depends on the mood. Sometime it's consistently one type or blend, and then other times, it's whatever catches my attention. A fair representation leads to variety.

    Candy Like Sweet Aromatics Recommendations Please

    Sutliff Coco-Creme - #333. Oh so sweet, maybe too much. I tend to cut it down with a burley blend to amp up the coco flavor and tone down the sweetness. Mix is about 1 part Coco Creme to 3 parts burley blend.

    Heading to Germany on Saturday

    Lived in Germany for ten plus years and spent time in Berlin on several occasions, my first when it was divided. Very pipe friendly and many different blends available at the large and small tobacconists. Miss it, but I'll get back there eventually.

    Nightcap or 965?

    Smoke both, but more Nightcap now. In fact had some earlier today. Opened first tin of Nightcap about 18 years ago and it smelled like a cross between burning tires and railroad ties. Smoked it, didn't taste much better, more like diesel fuel and soured leather. Didn't pick up another...
