    Is this mold?

    I opened a new pouch of St. Bruno tonight, the ready rubbed version that comes in the OTC pouch. I've never had St. Bruno before, but I noticed right away that some of the tobacco has a whitish coating on the outside of it. See the photos: Since I've never had this blend before I don't know if...

    Pipe Tobacco Hall of Fame?

    I've seen some discussion on product descriptions and old reviews that there was something called the "Pipe Tobacco Hall of Fame", which I can't find any information on. Does anyone know what it is or was? Anyone have a list of those tobaccos which are inductees?

    Pipe Bag and Tray

    Can anyone recommend a good pipe bag that’s stood the test of time? I look for one but a lot seem to be low quality. It doesn’t have to be leather but something durable would be good. I spend some time in Canada in the wilderness each year and I want a bag that will carry two pipes and all my...

    Dedicating Pipes to Certain Types.

    I see that some of you here restrict your pipes to smoking similar blends in each - a pipe for Virginias, or English, or Aromatics, without mixing them. I also read here that some blends can “ghost” a pipe, which I presume means that blend’s taste will haunt the pipe on later smokes. So, is it...

    Gold Block

    I was recently looking for some Gold Block, as I mentioned in another thread. I'd like to try it even though it seems not to be especially well regarded in its current form. I know it was one of the most popular blends in England at one time and some famous pipe smokers enjoyed it. After...

    Packing a Pipe Well

    I’ve seen a few videos about how to load my pipe, but I’m still having some issues getting a nice smooth burn or a decent amount of smoke. Often, to this point, I end up with only a little smoke and needing many many relights. I am doing the method where you load it about 2/3 full and tamp...

    The Strongest Blend You’ve Tried

    The question is in the thread title - I am wondering what the strongest tobacco blend you’ve ever sampled is , and perhaps what was the strongest one that you actually enjoyed? I know this raises the question of what we mean by strength, if that is the same thing as fullness of flavor and many...

    How Many Bowls In a Tin?

    Title edited. Please read Rule 9. Just wondering, obviously there will be much variation. I tend to only load them halfway at this point because if they’re packed to a medium level they last long enough; any more than this and I weary of the pipe before it’s done. At my rate of half bowls...
