    What is Your Holy Grail Pipe?

    Fruit Forward Blends?

    1) Peretti “Tropical Fruit” is a nice, quality mix. 2) Uhle’s “Raider Blend“ is kind of strange one but, a fun smoke once in a while. 3) Country Squire “Parson’s Blend” is pretty good. Edit: Peretti also has a Strawberry blend but, I haven’t tried it.

    Interview With JimInks At Smoking Pipes

    Great read! He looks like a relaxed kinda guy. I always pictured a more stern, old school looking guy. I was not aware of how prolific he is in the comic/illustration world! Quite a career. Also, I really liked the tie-in to Cannon! I DVR it every weeknight. I wonder what blends Mr. Conrad...

    Happy Canada Day!

    I’ve only been to Canada twice. I really enjoyed the sights, history, and people. Victoria was great and Vancouver was ok on the west coast but, really enjoyed Halifax, Lunenburg, and Chester on the east coast. I could see living the quiet life in Nova Scotia. It’s great. Happy Canada Day to...

I thought the labels looked kinda cheap and handmade next to the Dunhills, etc. The B&M tobacconist steered me to the Margate as I had a tin of Royal Yacht in my hand and he...

    How to Date Esoterica Tobaccos?

    I’m with you. Why not use dates like 2021XXXX or XXXX2013. Instead we get Q459Z#:54 which is supposed to mean 2016. Edit: According to the dictionary, esoteric is defined as: “intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest.”...

    Found an Old Bag of Ennerdale Flake

    Believe me, I’ve opened every drawer and looked in every cupboard throughout the house and the garage! I did find a meer still in the box.

    Found an Old Bag of Ennerdale Flake

    Here is the mystery cupboard. My better half threw this stuff in there and never bothered to tell me. Yesterday was like Christmas in June. (Forgive my feet I had to sit on the floor)
