    Pipe Shop in Portland, ME?

    I live in close proximity to the Calabash Shop and they have a fine selection of cigars and a good sized humidor. Basically a Cigar Bar. They serve beverages including alcohol and have a place to relax and enjoy a smoke. However there's nothing there for the pipe smoker. Other venues in...

    Fortunately I have every issue ever published and they are wonderful reference material. Sad to see the inevitable, but it's all about the bottom line. Mr. Matlick Thanks for the good reading.

    Personal preference is the bottom line. And personally it's my favorite Dunhill Blend of all time. Oriental forward and latakia in the background.

    Mixture 79 Sampled

    Mixture #79 was one of my all time favorite blends back in the 1960's. Holds a lot of good memories and can still enjoy the flavor of this olde time blend. Not only did I enjoy it, the customers in the Music Store at which I worked always remarked that they loved the aroma. Win win situation...

    Pipe with markings "Red Carpet"

    Red Carpet is/was a tobacconist shop in Providence, Rhode Island. Not sure if they are still in business. This could be a pipe made for their shop.

    The Exmoor (Comoy's) Shape 283 Rhodesian

    Nice looking briar Al. Loved the research done by Jon Guss as usual. If you need any info on obscure tobaccianna Jon's the go to guy for sure. I've owned several Exmoor pipes, none without fills and consider them a second line of Comoy. Still some great smokers though. Cheers.

    Lane Ltd Ready Rubbed and Heine's Blend

    Love both reviews here and now I'm tempted to open up a large jar of this blend that's been sitting on my shelf for over 20 years. Glad to see that it's still being manufactured.

    Broken Pipe Tony "Mr. Can" Soderman

    I can echo those sentiments exactly as you stated them John. What a loss to the pipe community. His knowledge, dedication, and presence will be sorely missed. Andy C.

    The Prettist Poker and Tamper I've Ever seen

    MAGNIFICENT. What a superb sandblast finish. This is the REAL grain not the manufactured grain done by some blasters that just make their own rings and swirls with the blasting nozzle. Congrats to you both. Ed for a wonderfully crafted pipe and Brad for the commissioning.

    L.J.Peretti's Blends

    Peretti's is one of the last TRUE Hand Blenders in the USA. Experiment and try as many blends as you can, you will find a favorite blend guaranteed. Tashkent, Royal and 9575 are a few of my favorites. Along with some of the burley blends like 110, 102, and others. Enjoy
