    I second the 1 oz sample idea. Also check out: Tobbacoreviews.com Remember everyone has different tastes. Sherlock Holmes is apricot flavored if I remember.

    Sugar or Mold

    What can be done to prevent mold? I know to clean glass jars. But can something be added, some little packet like those oxygen absorbers?

    Sentiment of Smoking, Cigar or Pipe. Is It Something Special or “Routine” in Your Day to Day?

    It is always special, especially since I usually go outside and am often joined by my cats in agreeable & companionable silence. We just enjoy being outside among the trees. Pipe smoking is almost like breath meditation, Anapanasati.

    Back From Air Wing Exercise

    Thanks for the photos! If you do another training assault, next time just airdrop a bunch of long forms with instructions that they are required immediately to maintain government benefits & pension eligibility. That'll keep everyone busy and THEN you do the real attack...

    Quick Question: What's the Non-System Shape Number of the Peterson 314?

    Seriously now, what is the story with that? It's got really nice grain, and is probably pretty rare & thus valuable. Have you run it by Mark at Peterson Pipe Notes - https://petersonpipenotes.org/

    Pipe Not Received from Retailer (Site Sponsor)

    I think you underestimate the power of some workers to mess (polite word) things up... Why don't you file a credit card dispute, and if you win just donate the funds to a local animal shelter (cats!). If you agree to donate to a shelter, I'll help you with the dispute. Just PM me order &...

    Mac Baren HH Pure Virginia - Turning Over a New Leaf

    I remember someone posting photos of a neighbor with those flue contraptions here, looked kinda like refrigerated trailers. I think pressing speeds up the maturation process. I think its like tea: green tea is just dried leaves, but black tea is run through rollers (like pressing) which...

    Mac Baren HH Pure Virginia - Turning Over a New Leaf

    My understanding is that Flue-cured means the tobacco is dried in a heated barn, which dries it more quickly, preserving the natural sugars, and also often keeping the tobacco lighter. Further maturing can darken the leaves as can other processes like stoving (baking) or steaming. Virginias age...

    I still suggest you file a dispute with the credit card company. They deal with this all the time and are the best bet for you getting a fair shake.

    Amount of Smoke

    I've noticed that there is more volume/density of smoke with the heavily flavored and PG'd blends, like Lane BCA and Capt Black White. Some of the heavy aromatics even mention large volume of smoke in their description.

    Quick Question: What's the Non-System Shape Number of the Peterson 314?

    Maybe the 307, aka the XL90? It's my favorite! Somewhere I saw a list of shape numbers and bowl sizes, grouped into medium, large, XL. Maybe it's on one of their shape charts? fyi, the 317 is tiny, maybe the smallest they make. They sometimes make the same shape in different sizes, like the...

    Pipe Not Received from Retailer (Site Sponsor)

    File a dispute with your credit card company, and also with paypal if you used them. You could also file a complaint (probably online) with the state attorney general in both your state and the company's state. If you're not in the US, check with your different levels of governments (local...

    Quick Question: What's the Non-System Shape Number of the Peterson 314?

    It may be the 221. Check the dimensions & shapes against each other. They are both small bowls (to me).
