    Sad News: Foggymountain Has Passed Away

    Dear All, This is Mavie. Bruce's wife. Thank you for these beautiful words about Bruce. This smoking community was very special to him and some of you have become his friends. He left a huge collection of beautiful Dunhill pipes and a whole bunch of pipe tobacco. I am a nurse at a major NYC...

    What Are You Watching On The Box?

    My favorite series is "Peaky Blinders" on Netflix. Almost worth watching for the vintage cars alone. Several 1920s Bentleys were featured. They mentioned that the lead character had 4 Bugattis, but didn't show any.

    Tip About Mercedes

    Thanks for the responses. I wanted a 300SL since 1954, finally decided to get one as a second car. That is why I got the 550. But Mercedes junked it up and ruined it with a computer. The car had other faults as well. You could feel the casting seam on the driver's door handle. That is absolutely...

    Tip About Mercedes

    A few years ago I sold many thousands of dollars in pipes, tobacco and cameras. used the money to buy a new Mercedes 550SL. It was a mistake. The car was great fun to drive, especially with the top down. But the computer which controlled almost everything was very unreliable. One month the top...

    How long should I cellar?

    Depends on the tobacco. English type blends are best at 7 years. Virginias just a little while.

    Finish coming off?

    Pipes usually smoke better when the stain comes off. I used to remove it with an alcoholic beverage before smoking,but when I got better pipes it wasn't necessary. Also, do not wax or seal it.

    Dunhill bruyere whitespot

    ayr: There is a huge difference between Dunhills and Petersons. The Dunhill bruyere is a great smoke but does take a a while to break in. The more wood on the bowl the longer it takes. I have plenty of great ones I can sell you at less than half the price of a new one.

    First Smoke in 13 Months

    I quit smoking 13 months ago because of heart problems. Yesterday I made an exception. I loaded a Dunhill #1 Crosby with Troost and smoked less than 1/3 of it. I must say it was among the more memorable few moments of my life. To say it was a good smoke is a severe understatement. It was...

    Stanwell...Good or Not so Much ?

    I have had 6-8 of them over the years. Only one was a good smoker. It was Danish made with a gold crown. Their pipes from Italy are poor.

    Savinelli Giubileo d'Oro

    I dislike the stem, which seems to be acrylic. The pipes are high quality otherwise.
