Donīt know what to say, but will enjoy reading your reveiws. Iīm smoking Borkum Riff black cavendish right now. But long for more depth in the taste, so Iīm pondering about putting an order for Rattrayīs 7 Reserve, which is one of my favourites, although it can be a little too "dry" or "flat" in the long run.

Welcome, How's the tobacco availability in Sweden? Can you get all the "basic" English and American blends often discussed on the board? And how are your prices? I'm always curious about what our brothers around world have access to and what they pay for it.

Hi! Thanks everybody for your welcoming response.
well, Iīve bought a dozen of good "estate"-pipes, and new ones also, at our local "e-bay" which is called "Tradera.se". The favourite is a hand-crafted "Volker Bier" from Germany. I just put a bid for a "meershaum"-pipe to use for fine detection of aromas.
About tobacco itīs a little more difficult, since smoking prohibition is working itīs way to the extent that pipe-tobacco isnīt found everywhere, so either I have to travel quite a bit, some 100 miles or order over the Internet.

Costs are in the region of 20-30 dollars (150-210 SEK) for between 40 to 50 g pouches. Expensive!
What is there to choose? Well check at www.gotteftermaten.se and you can see the different brands available.
Thatīs a pity. I would have liked to try one of Stonehavenīs since Iīve read so much good about that brand.

So far Iīm in for straight or slightly bent saddle-billiard or billiard models, but of course I will try more of different kinds. My pipe journey has just begun. I quit cigarettes 6 monts ago, but Iīm a sucker for my vices, a glass of wine, a cup of coffee and a really good smoke. I love it!

Yes! Thatīs a more wholesome view! In the land of Tobacco, America, what are the favourites? Or specials? I have a relative whoīs going over there in a few months time. Probably I could let her buy a few pouches of interesting or authentic classics.

Any way, in Sweden we are probably influenced by Denmark with the "aromatic" traditions. They are often mild and tasty, sweet and scented, but after a while the aromatic blends begin to have a monotonous, or taste-deafening effect, like if all tastes the same all the time; sugary smoke. A little more genuine, or naturally treated, yet rather light or complex tobacco would be interesting.

I donīt know, but "Capstan Navy Cut" has something of that, even though it is quite heavy. Rattrays 7 Reserve is also what I mean with "complex". It has both heavy, sweet, raw, smokey and light treats.
Well, glad for your points of views!
