Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

The only Becks that 4noggins has listed is Ol' Limey Bastard. It's received an average 3.5 out of 4 at TobaccoReview.com. I'd describe the bouquet as asphalt, burnt rubber tyres with a good dose of butt. I think we have determined that you are not a fan of latakia. It's a little disturbing that you...

Dr Grabow Duke, bent smooth, filtered.

Having received my pipe order today, I've been distracted by the MM Diplomat (love it) & just finally got around to trying the Dr Grabow. First impression is that it's a very small pipe. It's made me realise just how big my Peterson calabash really is. Big pipe with a big bowl. The Dr Grabow Duk...

2 Daughters Windsail (+ Buttered Rum)

As a trial run to see if it was possible to sneak some baccy past 'the man', I chose Windsail basically because I figured as a straight flue-cured virginia, it would be a good blending tobacco at an amazing price; just $20USD for 16oz.

Re: What aids your pipe enjoyment?

Sex You must be a clencher. Lol. Your comment provoked a mental image with man on top with pipe clenched between teeth in vigorous embrace, lol. Living in an age of Occupational Health & Safety, one must consider ones recreational safety as well. Or should I say hers. One can only imagine the r...
