All kidding aside, please welcome back a former pipe smoker who switched over, in a moment of madness, from his Peterson and Balkan Sobranie (the death of which affected me deeply) to Winstons. Lost my old Peterson (a Dublin, three hundred series - the perfect pipe to tuck into a coat pocket) and still mourn it.

Well, I'm back in the fold, and hoping my straying from the paths of pipe-smoking righteousness may, in time, be forgiven.

Very interested in the old OTC burleys, thinking that the durability and longevity of these tobaccos must be indicative of their meeting a fundamental need.

Sane is the word for it. Still can't believe I ever got started on the sticks. "They're just easier to carry around," I told myself. Yeah, so's arsenic.

I'll say this, too: Even the lowliest OTC pipe tobacco, smoked out of the cheapest cob pipe, beats the finest, most costly cigarette six days a week and twice on Sunday.

Now, if I can just find something that meets my craving for what you folks call "vitamin N', this cig junky can stay clean.

The 'Prodigal Son' returns to his senses and to the love of briar. Toss away the coffin nails, sit back and have a nice relaxing pipe and contemplate the meaning of life or just nothing at all. It's all good!

Welcome aboard Guanxi! And yes there is a reason that the old OTC blends are still around. Might I suggest that you try the oldest and grandest of them all, John Middleton Walnut that has been around since the mid to late 19th Century, blended from 7 of the world's finsest tobaccos! Very Happy

Yes, I've heard some interesting things about Walnut; it's on my 'to burn' list. Just mow, I'm experimenting with a plug tobacco I'd read something about. I've cut it, 50%, with some dried-out old CH, to improve handling qualities.

I'm on the end of day one of the plug drying (takes forever, even sliced paper thin); as soon as I'm more or less satisfied with it, I'll blend it with the PA, let it sit for a bit, and see what I've got.

Love the look of the plug slices, and hope this will be a cheapo intro to the esoteric joys of plug tobacco in a pipe.

Welcome back, I too made a years long shortcut to cigarettes, while never completely giving up the pipe, I seldom smoked it. I've been completely cigarette free for over three years now, and fell much better for it. cheers
