    Escudo?

    I’ve seen a couple forum members posting about leaving escudo in the rear-view. Had the blend changed? Prices too high now? What started this fall from grace?

    The (Un)Official Secret Santa 2020!

    My secret Santa was very kind to me. Didn’t know I was so well behaved this year...

    Nirvana Smokes

    It is nice to see varied interest in pipe smoking, especially on the forum. Wide array of opinions to be sure.

    Fair enough, no need to take away from the magic.

    Nirvana Smokes

    T That is an apt summary. From personal experience two things come to mind. The best cigarette (desperate times and all...) I ever smoked was soaking wet, huddled under a poncho in the middle of the woods with four of my buddies on the coldest night of an exercise. The greatest cup of coffee...

    Nirvana Smokes

    When you "parfait" tobacco blends so to speak, what do you usually look for? I've never experimented with the idea before. Do you look more for blends that will compliment/diversify and build depth? Or is it more of a random "I feel like these" kind of moment?

    Nirvana Smokes

    I was wondering how long it would take :LOL:. But I understand your thought, nothing will derail a trace like reaching for a lighter to relight, or a pick to adjust the air flow.

    Nirvana Smokes

    I've never considered Maslow's Theory in relation to a pipe. That's an interesting insight though, one which I think I'll need a pipe to sit and consider...

    Stick with It

    Let it breath for a few days and try it again. If that is still unsatisfactory then seal it up and cellar it for a month or two. I experienced the same thing with some Peterson Irish Flake. Opened it up, dried a couple flakes and smoked them in my favorite pipe. Meh. Let the tin breath and...

    Nirvana Smokes

    When you surface from the pipe trance after a nirvana smoke what do you find is more common? The pipe and the tobacco just really clicked thus causing the experience, or the circumstances surrounding that bowl which primed you for the experience. Say you finished a home project, you got the...

    The (Un)Official Secret Santa 2020!

    My package was out for delivery yesterday afternoon and only had to travel a max of two postal centers in total, so hopefully my recipient has it at this point.

    The (Un)Official Secret Santa 2020!

    My gift came in today, with some very fine wrapping at that. I hope my giftee (whose box is set to be delivered by now) also has a very nice wrapping of brown packing paper and a usps box.

    An Internal Dilemma

    That's fair and a good summation of the blend world. As far as soothing taste buds I'm sure there's some well crafted menthol blends out there🤮

    An Internal Dilemma

    Ah a fair bargain finally :ROFLMAO: . I still consider myself new due to the average experience level on this forum, and it would be laughable in that case to call myself anywhere near experienced.

    An Internal Dilemma

    Probably the best answer for all parties

    Rooster or Nite Owl?

    I usually find myself smoking a pipe late afternoon sometime before dinner. I may have one after if it's a quiet night but the lull between work and dinner calls for a pipe to reflect on the day, at least for me.

    An Internal Dilemma

    You're telling me I can't grift my way to my first million?
