    The One Smoke Gentlemen

    I often hear of the old masters who only smoked one blend. Tolkien is famous for Capstan blue, C.S. Lewis for Three Nuns etc. I've found the blend hopping and TAD a tad obnoxious within myself. I've loved English tobaccos with buttery sour orientals, had an affair with the nutty rich goodness...

    Good Cheap Pipe

    If you can find a rossi straight pot that will serve you well. I've had one that's lasted me near a decade and it's still one of my best smokers.

    Pipe And Cigarettes.

    I have the occasional cigarette, either PS Turkish Export or Dunhill Red. My doctor put me on Wellbutrin awhile back so I don't really get nicotine cravings anymore, but I think I'm still a little psychologically addicted. Feels great though with the morning coffee before dawn.

    Roll-your-own smoker considering switching to pipe (questions)

    I don't know I'd you'll be able to recreate the draw of cigarette with a pipe. What I did to transition was buy a couple Dr. Grabows and a big tin of Sir Walter Raleigh. Your not going to get remotely the same amount of nicotine but if you need to inhale SWR is very easy on the throat. I keep...

    Burley Blends for Those Who Dislike Burley

    I have no idea what it's like to dislike burley, however I do love virginas. I'd recommend C&Ds Virginia Gentleman. For my money it's the best all day Va/Bur you can find.

    The Strongest Blend You’ve Tried

    Strongest thing I've ever tried - chopped up rustica mixed with a little dark fired at a friend's tobacco blending event. Strongest thing I've tried and enjoyed: Either Jacknife plug or 10 Russians depending on if you mean taste or nicotine hit.

    Hooked on Capt Black.

    I stopped at a smoke shop on my way home today and bought a pouch of CB cherry. It's honestly not nearly as bad as people say it is, I like it acually. It kinda tastes like Sweedish fish to me. I think I'm going to repent of my pipe snobbery and just admit I like classic drug store aros.

    Hooked on Capt Black.

    Maybe it's just the extra time in the package or I like the PG haha I'm sure if it's 1-q packaged, that would have some effect on the flavor.

    Hooked on Capt Black.

    Captain Black Royal is damn good. A lot of people say its just packaged 1Q but I've noticed the liquor topping is a a lot more noticeable in Royal...and the cut is better.

    B&M Haul

    Update: The Racing Green is very good. Citrusy, slightly floral, and sweet with the virginas taking the primary role. The topping is there but seems pretty mellow in comparison to normal Danish aromatics. It's a good blend but I can see why STG may have taken it out of production. The Golden...

    B&M Haul

    I'm not that big into heavily topped aros so I'd be fine if the topping mellowed. I might try it over the weekend and report back.

    B&M Haul

    I've been curious about it too, not sure if I want to open her up. I'd imagine Orlik aromatics preserve well in the tin but idk.

    B&M Haul

    I walked in to a local cigar shop to see if they had any pipe tobacco...needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. The guy working there said they like to have pipe tobacco in stock but it doesn't sell. The golden sliced is dated 2013, Racing Green and Mellow Mixture 2014, Jacknife 2018, and I...

    Joe Lankford passing. RIP

    Very sad, seemed like such a cool guy. I'll be packing a bowl of classic plum pudding in his honor tonight. RIP

    Codger Blend as a Daily Smoke

    I'm kind of curious if adding some latakia to royal would make something similar to CB black sea...which I've never tried but have heard it was really good.

    Codger Blend as a Daily Smoke

    I tend to usually smoke burley or English(technically Scottish I guess) blends and like pretty much all the codger blends I've tried. SWR and Velvet are my two favorites. I tried CB Royal recently and thought I was going to hate it, but fell in love.
