    Cornell & Diehl Jolly Old St. Nicholas

    Drops tonight at 6:00 pm EST @ tobaccopipes.com A largesse of St. Nick's personal smoking mixture, this magical blend combines the finest golden Virginias with mellow Black Cavendish and a whisper of genuine St. James Perique for complex tobacco flavor enhanced by notes of orange liqueur and...

    Amusing Accessory

    So I pulled the trigger on one of these as I was placing an order with MM anyways. Basically a custom-printed ball jar lid with a plastic/nylon base. Solidly built, inexpensive, and available in your choice of several colors. I think it will be useful albeit it will only hold 2 or 3 smokes...

    A Modest Effort

    I had an interesting conversation via a PM with Kevin the other day. I suggested he add pipe-related terms to the site spell checker dictionary. He corrected my misunderstanding as this functionality lives in the browser. So I took it upon my self to put together a dictionary of common pipe...

    Top 5 Blends To Cellar Deeply

    Mordy18 recently posted a comment about finding a blend to cellar deeply. This got me thinking (always dangerous), what are your top 5 blends to cellar deeply now, from a smoking preference perspective? Currently mine would be something like this: Newminster Superior Navy Flake Presbyterian...

    Opening An Irreplaceable Tin

    We all have blends in our cellar, in varying supplies, that we simply cannot replace. What prompts you to pop a tin of the good stuff? Note that this is more than an academic topic to me as I have been staring at my two remaining tins of Bohemian Scandal. ?

    Subscription Service

    I'm finding it's becoming a nuisance to be manually sending my money to SmokingPipes.com. Sykes needs to establish a subscription service (aka "set cellar = autobuild" mode) so the money just vanishes automagically and tobacco appears at set intervals.

    B&M Tobacco Prices - Observational

    So I'm traveling and thought I would drop in on a B&M I used to frequent many years ago. Very old school place; no online shopping from their website. Perused their tobacco selection and I must observe that they are very proud of their wares if the price is any indication. I always want to...

    Breakfast Blends

    Review: And Now For Something Completely Different.

    For anyone with access to a Publix grocery store, I found the following jar available for $8.00. The picture shows it with 16 ounces of BLWB goodness. I realize this may not work for all tobaccos, what with constant opening and closing. However, for those bulk blends that seem to contain a fair...

    Interesting Pipe Tool

    A little bulky for jeans/shorts pockets but a great add-on to throw in a pipe bag or jacket. It's part of the Screwpop line and available, along with everything else on the planet, on the big A.

    Going Without A Pipe (Oh, The Horror!)

    We've chatted recently about how long we can jokingly refrain from TAD/PAD, but how long have you gone without smoking your pipe? I don't mean quitting for a period of time in life. I mean putting it down for one reason or another ("I'm talking to you, flu!" [said in best Mr. T impression]) and...

    Are Esoterica Blends Sold in Bulk?

    Esoterica Pipe Tobacco - http://www.kingsmokingpipesandcigars.com/esoterica-pipe-tobacco is selling for $13/oz. Are they breaking down 8 oz. bags? Seems kinda shady if so.

    Greetings from a traveling piper!

    Hey folks! I've been an piper for about 25 years. I travel a bit for work and alternate between Michigan and Florida as a home base. I used to be pretty active on ASP "back in the day" and fondly remember Sailorman Jack's daily greetings. My cellar, while far from extensive, brings me great joy...
