Hi Everyone,

As you can see I have been lurking here for quite some time. I have been smoking a pipe for 35 years off and on (mostly on). Until about three years ago I smoked mainly British "staples", St Bruno, Erinmore, Condor etc. I now smoke a wide range of baccys (brought to my attention by the internet). My main preferences are flakes, twists and plugs. If really pressed I would have to say Velvan Plug is my favourite - but really I just love tobacco, especially SG and G&H blends.

Anyway - looking forward to many happy hours ahead.

Alan

Welcome!!

Ain't the internet evil? Before discovering these pipe sites my annual pipe and tobacco budget was a couple o Grabows and a few ounces of Tinderbox whatchamacallit blend. Shoot, if I'd never found these miscreants here I'd be driving a Mercedes instead of a Dodge Laughing

Welcome, Alan. I smoked a pipe for about ten years, many many years ago, and got by with about six pipes and one tobacco. I just started smoking them again a couple of months ago. I now have 27 pipes and 23 blends of tobacco. Let me tell you friend, I'm helping the national economy at the sacrifice of my own. Hope you have more restraint than most of the rest of us. lol!

Actually I was originally named after John Middleton but due to the notoriety I had to go down to the court house and change it once I became an adult. Very Happy

Hi Alan,
Welcome, we seem to have some things in common. I am another Brit who has just joined this board and I also have spent most of my life smoking the English staples (Condor, Bruno etc.) even though I have lived out of the UK for the last 25 years (now in France). Like you I recently discovered the Internet and have been at a tobacco tasting event ever since. Really pleasently surprised to have discovered how many superb tobaccos are made in the US (especially the Burleys).

Funny how things change. I used to dread going to the US on business and yet now compared to Europe the US is a smoker's paradise. I still visit my family in the North of England regularily and find the attitude to tobacco in the UK is turning into a national pyschosis. How do you manage to continue smoking these days ?

BTW did you ever smoke any Three Nuns Empire Blend (the yellow round tin, not the brown square one). I think it has disappeared and am wondering if there are any erzatz versions around.

All the best,
TG
