    Odd, Strange, Or Exotic Things You Have Eaten Plus Tobacco...

    Someone mentioned scorpion above. It's not bad, somewhere between cricket and soft-shell crab. Not sure if it has the protein concentration of crickets, but I'd eat it again if I was hungry. And, Cosmic, that story about the pig rectum calamari was a joke of sorts. I don't think there's any...

    Are You Guys Taking This Seriously Enough?

    Sorry, if you don't have to relight now and then, you aren't smoking slow enough. Just stuck in a rut.

    Harris, oddly enough, I'm pretty sure that was my pipe as well. Next time I want to sell a pipe, I should probably just drop you a line and save us both some money. You certainly have good taste.... :D

    Yeah, photobucket was giving me a hard time. Sorry about that.

    What was your worst tasting tobacco?

    3rd or 4th for Mixture 79. Had a baggie full in my car on a sunny day and it took weeks to get rid of the lingering odor. Ugh.

    This is my old home office, shows about a fifth of the books. This is the upper right corner of the sketch I made before building it out. In our new location, the books are split half and half between my home office and office office. And I donated a couple of thousand to the library...

    Another Rad Davis For The Collection

    Yes, the ferrule is boxwood.

    Another Rad Davis For The Collection

    That looks just like the one I sent off to Coopersark a few weeks ago. If it is the same pipe, I hope you enjoy it. Well, I hope you enjoy it, either way. It's a great pipe.

    Name Your Most Obscure Blend

    Maybe more uncommon than obscure, Marcovitch Black & White (the older one).

    Daughters & Ryan: London Dock

    Very interesting. It's been a while, but I don't remember getting cherry from it....

    P&C 25% Code Works for PipeTobacco

    That's sick. Some world class blends for $5/tin.

    Boswell Tins...need jarring?

    Yeah, if you're not going to smoke them soon, those Boswell tins need jarring. That said, I don't agree re: the Pease and SPC tins not really being sealed. The seals seem fine to me. In fact, I expect they are better sealed that the SG you mention. Certainly if escaping aroma is any...

    Pipe Tobacco Availability Frustration

    For people new to pipes, I can both understand the frustration and suggest it's really not a big deal. Sure, it's lamentable to see fine blends (and blenders) disappear. Certainly, I miss greatly Troost Slices (Van Rossem's) and Frog Morton (original). I haven't found something to replace...

    Dunhill DURBAR

    Was referring to the original post. Sorry if that wasn't obvious. It seems to me he is categorizing Durbar (and, I assume, oriental blends in general) as "latakia-light" and thus finding them less satisfactory than English blends, maybe resulting from not understanding that there is a...

    Dunhill DURBAR

    So, you don't like oriental blends.

    What Book Are you Reading? - 2019

    ^ I really enjoyed the Hyperion Cantos many years ago and have been thinking about rereading them. I haven't gotten into his other work as much but haven't tried Terror yet. Finally gotten around to reading The Black Company books (of the first seven or eight to them at least) and have been...

    Cornell and Diehl - Your Opinion

    Morley's Best is a good one. Also, I loved Heady Doctrine, but it was a small release and I don't know if any of their regular production blends are like it. This week I'll probably order the Lovecraft-themed blends to try, just out of curiosity. The company produces so many blends as the OP...

    When Was The Last Time You Bought A Blend That Was New To You?

    A few weeks ago I bought some RO Series Acadian English. Before that, a few of months ago, it was the Country Squire's Shepherd's Pie. Quite a few members note that they are all set for tobacco. I envy them. My cellar has enough to last me a couple of lifetimes, but my curiosity for new...
