Thanks!!! This place is awesome. Many of Minas gerais state hills sit at 1200m above sea level or higher. So.., I'm a tropical highlander.., in a sense. We don't have Whiskey but we have our fire water: cachaça. Greetings from the Brazilian Highlands Cachac10

Great to meet you Alottalatakia. Your pictures make me envious! You live in a very attractive area.

I'll look forward to more of your posts about what it's like living there, what kind of pipe weed you smoke and is available, your pipes and so forth.



Cheers,

RR

Welcome my friend. Enjoy your time with us.

(I took the liberty of flipping your last photo 90 degrees so it compliments the actual site.)

Thank you for the warm welcome! Yes! My daughter lives there Down Under,... in Sydney. She is coming soon for a visit to the jungle here... Is there any good tobacconist down there? How about pipe tobacco prices? Maybe i should ask her to bring a stash for me...

Cool, I’m in the mountains to Sydney’s West and sadly the pipe and tobacco situation here in Aus is woeful. Tobacconists that sell pipes are few and far between and tobacco tax is heading towards $1200 AU per Kg, so I’m sure you can find cheaper baccy with less hassle.

So Timbo...if someone sent you some pipe tobacco as a gift, would you be taxed to hell and gone like in the UK?


SO...Let’s say it again. The tobacco tax in OZ is $1200 AUD = $850 USD per KG. So that’s essentially $425/pound. Holy guacamole Batman. That means my little 2 Oz tin of whatever is taxed over $50 USD.

Holly! Terrifying! This requires robbing a bank each time you want a puff...! So.., how do you manage?

Most “care” packages get through AOK, those that get caught, I get a tax invoice sent to me which can be ignored if I wish. And yes those sums are about right, last tin of McClelland’s I purchased here was $70. Shocked

And ‘cos this seems to be the thread for it, here’s the view from my smoking lounge (comfy chair on my back deck.)

Welcome from windy Wyoming, elevation of our town is 7220 feet. Absolutely stunning views you have posted I am seriously jealous. Correct me if I'm wrong but your local firewater is a close relative of our rum is it not? Fermented from sugarcane and I don't believe its aged is it? I've searched liquor stores up here with no luck and refuse to pay what online shops want for it.

Those ropes are a dream come true for a lot of us. About how big around are they? They look massive! Love that knife too. The handle material is really nice and the blade shape looks perfect for cutting rope

I look forward to learning more about your local history and traditions. Smoking related and otherwise. Also would love to see and hear about the local cuisine in the kitchen and speakeasy section.

Hello Jim! Thanks for the warm welcome!!!! Cheers! I really may get some corn cob pipes for myself- the country gentleman is a gorgeous smoking machine in its own way!
The tobacco ropes measure some 10 m in length.
I'm sending a video on how it is made

youtube.com/watch?time_continue=27&v=b6wzUT3coQo


Our firewater- cachaça, like rum is made from sugar cane.., but the major difference here is that cachaça is made from just pressed sugar cane juice and rum, usually is made from molasses. After fermentation and distillation, it can be consumed right away or is left to age in wooden barrels. We use some local hard woods that impart some aroma and colour, mainly Umburana, Jequitibá and Arariva. Some enterprising minds are using American oak...with great results I may say!
Below you can see some oak barrels
