    OK...I Get It Now.

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) What is the classic blend that your tried to like... but couldn't. You gave the tobacco a good sampling, but never could "get it". With disappointment, you give up and put it away for another time. Then...one day you pick it up and there's that...

    My Orient Express

    I have a problem. Over the past 5 years I can collected Virginia's of many forms. I have my technique down and @ 150+ pounds of various virginia's, my cellar is set for the end of time. Va-pers, va-ber's, flakes, coins or shag I love them all. I have wandered down the latakia road many times...

    Humorous Reviews...

    For Fathers day, my son tried to be a good son and get hip Pop some Pipe Tobacco. He brings me a cob, a tool and a bag of Paladin Black Cherry, I was pleased that he made the effort. It was a good day for sure. After he left, I thought I would go on Tobacco Reviews and read what the "experts"...

    Sillem's Councilor Flake

    A worthy flake that does not get many mentions. Bought a can at Strauss in Norther Ky when I visited last week. Sweet with lots of spice. Reminds me of a spicier version of Marlin flake. Becan is/was one of my favorites, Councilor is as close to Becan as I have found. It's my opinion and worth...

    Gauging the Popularity of Pipes...

    I've read how shortages of many blends + the increased cost of pipes are an indicator of increased demand and popularity of piping. I am not sure that this is the case. Collectors are buying the supply of tobacco and driving prices up. There have to be other ways to gauge if the industry is...

    Vacuum Sealing Aged Stogies

    I have a bunch of sticks with 10+ years on them. They're probably at their very peak in terms of aging right now. The collection is in a converted thermo-electric wine fridge in a cool dry place. The unit is air tight and I only have to add some moisture (distilled H2O and beads) about every 2-3...

    Going deep...

    Question... When you say that you "went deep" purchasing/cellaring a certain types of tobacco, how do you define "deep". I know that this is dependent of a lot of variables. Was just wondering.

    Franz Hiess & Söhne Meer

    Purchased an Old Meer at Auction by a small German company Franz Hiess & Söhne. I'm dating this to around 1910. I think the stem is not original. Either way, it needs replaced. It's in good shape with no chips or breaks of the pipe detail. Looking to do a silver band (for reinforcement) + an...

    Pipestud

    His website needs some attention. There's an away on vacation banner that is making it unstable. If anyone has his number, may want to let him know. I sent him an e-mail but don't know if he checks when he's away.

    Esoterica question

    There are a couple of blends that I am trying to stockpile in the cellar. I have accumulated enough Dunbar, but would like another couple of pounds of Stonehaven. Prices are stupid high right now at around 25$ an oz on fleabay. PS sells out in seconds. + I don't like spending money if I do not...

    Unobtanium Co-op

    I was intrigued by the thread a few weeks back about placing a bulk order to the EU for Curly Block. I thought it was brilliant. Sounds like it went off without a hitch and got through customs. Question...With some brands getting virtually impossible to find (stonehaven), has anyone tried to...

    100th post

    Have been enjoying the forum. It's a wealth of information and most appreciated. I'm a collector of old stuff. Various things. Pipes are one of those things that I like to have. They are beautiful little objects. But, it's time to thin the herd in a big way. I have about 25 or so pipes I am...

    Best bets for the cellar....

    Hi, long time reader. Tried to find a thread about new releases (or even old stand by's) that would be good "bets" to age well. I am in process of accumulating a stache and would be interested in folks opinions. Just bought for aging: McC Christmas Cheer 2017 and 2016. C&D Small batch...
