But I really like the coconutty flavor of H&H so it kinda bums me out.
You've tried Burley Light Without Bite? Different but has a coconut note to me and it allegedly is without bite. A little, or a lot, of Perique is great with it, makes it like chocolate. Also very little nicotine, wish there were more.
Veddy eeenteresting. :-) Might have to try that. Thx for the info. :thumbs:

Grabbed an 8oz tin of gentleman caller to add to my stash. My current jar has just under 2 years age on it and the other night I was reminded why it's my favorite deer tongue blend

Tried the smokingpipes estate/credit deal but before the credit was applied, which was quite fair, somebody grabbed the pipe I was after, jerk. Luckily there was a consolation prize, one I've also been watching for. So I used some house monies and scooped up another pound of HH Burley Flake and Sutliff Match RR to keep it company.

Just for future knowledge you can call or email the folks over there and tell them what pipe you're interested in and ask them to hold it for you until the deal is complete.

Looks like you scored a beauty anyway

I've visited cigarbid.com too often. I wound up with 40 cigars...a series of eight five-packs, for very little money. Worst part is, I have absolutely zero knowledge of cigars! As I've said before, "Cigarbid is the DEBBIL!" :twisted:

Cigars don't require any knowledge really, aside from how to store them(assuming they aren't dry cured). I used to keep my stash in one of those snapware containers with a 68% Boveda humidity pack. I had a few different cutters, but settled in to just cutting the first cap off with my Old Timer. I started doing this after seeing Pete Johnson(of Tatuaje) score the first cap with his thumbnail pinch it off and light up. As with pipes, there are no rules.. only zealots who want you to think so.

Well that's a relief! I bit a cap off one (saw it in a western) and poked a few holes in the end of another with a couple of toothpicks. I think the pocket knife sounds like a plan
