    Tobacco Sales Back on eBay

    I have seen a lot more tobacco tins on sale and being sold on eBay lately. I have been tracking some of the unicorn blends and they seem to be making it through the final sale. The prices are a lot higher than they were when eBay started enforcing the No Tobacco Sale rule. Maybe they do not...

    Opened some Sutliff tins from 2013/2014. Bottoms are rusted. Tobacco is a little dry but smells good. Any issues health or otherwise smoking these?

    Need a Gift Idea

    I have a friend who was a big cigar smoker. I turned him on to pipes and he now loves them. He has since got his son into pipes as well. His son is currently serving as a submariner in the US Navy. His son is a WWII buff. Looking for birthday gift ideas that tie pipes and WWII together. Any...

    Cellar Ratio Comparison

    I'm curious how everyone's cellar is stocked. I did a quick count and I was surprised to find I had less aromatics than I thought. Using general classifications mine is: English/Balkan 50% VA/PER 40% Aromatics 10% I thought I smoked and cellared more aromatics than that.

    I really like Capstan, SG FVF, F&T Golden Mixture. I'm looking to find a really good straight virginia in bulk. I am told Mac Baren HH Pure Virginia is the best out there for bulk. What you think?

    FIrst bowl in the morning

    I smoke about 21/25 bowls a week. Less on weekdays and more on weekends. Is it just me or does the first bowl in the morning always seem to taste the best. Most of the flavors are accentuated and seems to taste better than the same tobacco smoked at the end of the day. Maybe those that smoke...

    Tabac Manil Semois - Storage

    I have a great affinity for these tobaccos after trying it a little while ago. As you know it comes in gold foil bricks that are not sealed in any way and just wrapped in paper. I now have a little over 5 lbs to add to my cellar. I can not imagine it could get any drier than it is now. How do...

    Being new to pipe smoking I have been trying as many blends as possible. I have even bought no longer produced stuff to see what it's like. I see all over eBay what I consider high prices for Esoterica. Is this no longer in production or just not available right now? Is the taste and quality so...

    Dunhill Nightcap Knockout

    When I first started smoking a pipe (which wasn't long ago) I was all about aromatics. Lately my taste has changed and I am really liking some Latakia blends. When I get a craving for a bowl it's a Latakia blend that I crave. I still like aromatics but now I seem to always throw a bowl of Balkan...

    Frog Morton

    Being new to pipes I started as an aromatic guy and figured I would always be that way. I really enjoy some of them and have a few favorites. I acquired some Frog Morton when I bought some pipes that were for sale locally. He had a box of jarred tobacco and I gave him $100 for it. It had some...
