Does anybody have a sentimental tobacco? What I mean by that is a tobacco that brings back memories , a blend that your grandfather or father , or another male relative smoked that you have fond memories of, and if so, do you keep some on hand to remember that person by? For me it's Carter Hall, that's what my favorite uncle smoked and I can remember him taking that yellow foil pouch out of his pocket, filling his pipe, and smelling that aroma . I haven't had any in awhile but plan on getting some.

Yes. Half and Half. I thought all other blends were imposters until I was about 20, four years after my taking up the pipe. I think they may have also smoked Union Leader once in a while, but H&H was the one.

My grandfather smoked Prince Albert, but all I really remember is the red tub. He would have his pipe rack and tobacco on an end table next to his recliner. He would sit there and watch Gunsmoke episodes and smoke his pipe.

I have a few sentimental pipes but no blends. I guess that comes with the territory: I'm the first person in my family to have picked up the pipe, so no real memories there - just my own with my first few pipes.

Half and Half was my Dad's favorite until Pinkerton changed the recipe. Now that STG has started making it and it is now very close to the original I always have some on hand. It reminds me of my Dad and I sitting in our back porch swing having a bowl together. I surely miss him and would give almost anything to be able to share anther bowl with him. One day Dad, One day... I love you

...Erinmore Flake also.

Pa, my grandfather, used to smoke it. I can remember the room note but had no idea about the blend until my mum, upon learning that I had taken up the briar, pointed it out.

I don't currently have a tin open but because of Pa it'll always be in my cellar.

I firmly believe you will one day AJ, hes happy to wait til your good n ready tho


sadly my uncles/grandparents etc were never "cool" enough to smoke a pipe, most of my Cornish family would never smoke as it was deemed to be burning cash and they had little to go around as it was.

I do remember as a kid of 6 or 7 sitting in the park on a very long warm summer days listening to the noise the grasshoppers used to make and smelling the sweetest most alluring smell from a pipe from a old gent that my grand dad knew, each and every time I used to visit we were always taken to the park to feed ducks and if we were lucky hed be there and I would sit next to a old timer with a pipe. I used to sit so close to the man I never really knew and the smell was so captivating. to this day I don't know what he was called or what he smoked but I do remember him

I guess it would be Grandpa's Sweater for me. He never really smoked around other people that I was aware of, at least family-wise, but when you gave him a big hug the aroma lingered in his clothes, and it was such a nice campfire-ish/sweet/cookie smell. I only got his one pipe when he passed, no tobacco, so I have no idea what he smoked. But when I got into blending, I came up one that when I smoke it, it's like he's sitting there with me, watching the stars spin on their great celestial wheel...............

My dad smoked Paladin Black Cherry and the smell filled the house. It was my first tobacco purchase when I was a kid, back when drug store clerks didn't ask your age before they rang up your Dr. Grabow, tobacco, and Playboy,,,threw in a couple packs of matches and some pipe cleaners to boot.

Bottom line,,,set me back a couple months in my pipe smoking career wondering how anything so yummy smelling could taste so crappy. Still remember dad whenever I see it, but that's as far as it goes. lol!

For me it's always Uhle's 255. It's what my Pap smoked exclusively as far as I can remember. Uhle's 255 and none other.

I've said this many times before here on this forum, but when I got into the pipe I figured if it was good enough for my Pap it was good enough for me. So that's what I started off with, and still enjoy it.

And, I always think of Pap whenever I enjoy this 'baccy.

Cheers,

RR

My father did smoke a pipe, but not for very long. And he stopped years before I was born.
Besides him, as far as I know, only my great-grandfather smoked a pipe.
So I guess I have no sentimental tobacco I can link to anyone in my family.
