I enjoy a few D&R blends (in the pipe). Picayune is a favorite, although I did have someone on another forum contact me and offer to send me a tin minus a couple of bowls. It was NOT to his liking. So... not everyone likes it.leacha wrote: ↑Tue May 08, 2018 8:52 amThere a lot of choice pickings in the "good". Im scratching my head with 507c, though it doesn't surprise me. After the fall of the McClelland Empire people googled, found it, tried it and now are stocking it. Maybe they didn't want to get caught with their pants down if goes the wayside.
I keep wanting to smoke a few D&R blends but that whole RYO into pipe tobacco really rubs me raw.
I have a brother who came for a visit. He had tried pipe smoking but had not liked the mild aro blends they insisted he wanted at a local pipe shop. I gave him a pot I got from @Wooda and some generous samples of OJK and Picayune. I gave him a quick tutorial on packing, etc. He had always been a cigar smoker, but that runs into some money, and he was open to a pipe.
He was really impressed that they tasted like tobacco and were not what he would would call wimpy. There was a lot of flavor, and he enjoyed it. After he went home, I contacted him to see how things were going. He said he had just ordered a pound of Picayune. The pipe smoking was going really well.
