    Squadron Leader at SP

    I, too, passed. I'm not sure I would still call a yearly release of 4,500 tins "limited".

    Germain’s Tin Dating

    Century was first released only 2-3 years ago, iirc, so those dates don’t sound right. I’ve seen it hit the markets (in the US) only a couple of times since then so probably you should just assume they are from either 2017-18.

    Is There a Bulk Alternative to Mac Baren's Three Nuns?

    Well, looky here! My old post came back from the dead! Thanks to everyone for the added suggestions. I do enjoy Dark Twist, haven't tried Club or Roll Twist. Will put those on the list. I do have some tins of Doblone D'Oro but haven't tried any yet. Will get on that. Thanks again!

    Peretti Blends

    I've had 7485 and I enjoyed it. If you keep in mind that it's a Virginia heavy blend with Latakia (or a very mild English blend) you'll be fine. If you're looking for a full-on English you'll be sorely disappointed. It's like a much smoother version of Wild Atlantic....if you've ever tried...

    Penny Farthing Speed Records

    Hmm. So the “h” wasn’t a typo afterall!

    Ennerdale Flake

    The 'essence' fades a bit after a year or so of cellaring. It you find it overpowering now come back to it after a bit. It is made of fine leaf.

    Broken Pipe: Robert A. Peretti (1921-2019)

    I haven’t seen Mr. Peretti in the shop for 15 or so years. He used to have a making/repair corner in what’s now the the cigar corner; to the left after you walk in the door. I think they ran out of his pipes a few years ago. There used to be a ton of them hanging on the wall, all classic...

    Which Smokes Make You Feel Manly?

    Cockstrong....but just because of the name. I’ve never actually tried it. Could be a good substitute for Viagra!

    A Couple of Brands I Didn't Know: Ropp / T. Cristiano / Amphora

    I've owned a Cristiano Rhodesian for 20 years. I love it! I bought another a couple of years ago and it was a total dog. I sent it back. If you find a good one, great! But there are lots of not-so-good ones out there. The Ropps are good for the money. I have a newer and an older one...

    Tool for Curling a Pipe Band?

    I remember seeing how Peterson does this in a factory tour video. You may be able to find it on youtube. They do it on a metal lathe. I remember the video stating that this silversmith had to apprentice for years before getting it right. Good luck....

    Cornell and Diehl - Your Opinion

    If you're mostly into Lat blends you should consider GL Pease. Yes, made by C&D, so there shouldn't be supply issues. In general, I find C&D blends to be a little rough around the edges. I like this quality, but the GLP stuff is generally a bit more smooth and 'elegant.' My throat can no...
