Well, Dock, I finally made it to BOB! I'm so glad you're enjoying the 30-year-old Burley Flake. It is smooooth, isn't it? I received a Meerschaum for my birthday from my dear friend Ida and I must say - never having smoked one before - I'm hooked. A cool smoke with no bite, stays lit and tastes like...whatever's in the bowl! I'm now rediscovering my 50-plus different tobaccos and just bought a second Meer @ Peretti's. I'd also like to say hi to Ken - tried the tobaccos you gave me and love the Dark Bird's Eye! But the Happy Bogie set me on my butt - and I was already sitting down!

Just wanted to say hello to you all at BOB! Happy Puffing...

Neil

Neil! Thrilled you've made it over here!

Neil is a member of the SHPC and a good buddy. Though he's to modest to say it, he's a very well known and respected fragrance designer. He's been busy making our pipe club's official aromatic blend "Abbey Grange". His enthusiasim for our hobby is nothing short of contagious. I'm sure he'll fit right in here!

Wow! Neil, I just noticed you list 'The Mighty Condor' as you current favorite blend! It has been a favorite of mine since 1984-5 ish when I first was introduced to it having purchased a Ben Wade from a fine tobacconist in York, England! I enjoyed it for years until it was suddenly no longer exported to the USA. I've found a reasonable substitute in SG Bracken Flake as they are in a very similar vein. I have since found a friend (who shall remain anonymous) to trade with for an infrequent supply of Condor Original, the one and only. He actually hates the stuff, but should he ever leave the UK he'd likely find himself missing it somehow ...

Anyway, great to have another Condor fan aboard, I felt quite lonely, ok, there are bound to be one or two others on here: Break the seal gently ... for that Condor moment!

Ahh, Kilted1, yes! Break gently for that Condor moment! I order it from James Barber and I since they won't take my credit card order, I have to place the order online, then they tell me what the cost will be, I then go to MY bank and transfer funds directly into THEIR bank account and they send it to me! WHEW!!! But I won't be stopped! I love it that much, both original long cut and ready rubbed. I've dedicated 2 pipes to Condor since it will ghost a briar, as I'm sure you know.

Thanks for the info on SG Bracken Flake! Is it readily available? I'd love to try it.

Like several other fine SG offerings, it seems to have spotty availability. When I'm flush and need to restock, I order Bracken Flake, 1792, Kendal Cream Flake and FVF by the pound, generally from smokingpipes.com or similar vendor. I rotate my 'smoking stock' in order of age, and have found the foil vacuum packs which SG ships last a good long time, though the aging process is negligible. If I truly desire it to be aged, I'll break open the packs and divide the contents into sealed mason jars for long term storage.



Some vendors will sell you a pound of tobacco which doesn't come factory sealed in the way I describe, I've had varied experiences with several vendors, you may wish to call in advance of placing the order to anticipate how it will be sent.

He does fragrances for Takashimaya? He must be a master at what he does. (High-end Japanese consumers have some of the most exacting tastes in the world.) If he's working on the SHPC aro, sign me up in advance.

Hi Doc Manhattan!

Yes, Takashimaya is a beautiful store and you're right, they have very exacting tastes.

If you're curious about the SHPC aro I'm working on it's called Abbey Grange, after one of my favorite Holmes stories. I'm blending Eastern Carolina Ribbon, Cigar Leaf, White Burley, Red Virginia and Bright Flake, lightly cased (to give it a pleasant room note but not to in any way overwhelm the tobacco taste) with Cocoa and Apple.

I'll be bringing the latest version to the meeting Tuesday night to see what the members think.

Neil
