    Peterson recommendation?

    I’m looking to buy a new pipe for the first time in ages and I have always wanted a Pete. A couple have caught my eye, esp the Irish Harp series. I tend to really love a pipe that is right in the mid range when it comes to price (maybe low end for some). For me a $75-$125 savinelli or Stanwell...

    Sutliff 515 RC-1

    This stuff is a real banger! That Virgina tang is in full force here and puffed slowly remains throughout. As the bowl went on and if I pushed it I got some deeper, earthy bready notes but always a backdrop to that classic Virginia zing! Only one bowl in but I’m very impressed with Sutliff 515...

    So many Cigars

    Hey, guys. I was at a B&M the other day (not one I usually go to) and decided I wanted a cigar and realized, I have no idea what kind or which one(s) I might like... there were easily a thousand to choose from there, and not much explanation of what I was about to purchase... I usually smoke...

    During the night my grandfather passed away. He was 88 years old. The father to four boys, six grandchildren, and five great grandchildren, and husband for 63 years till my grandma passed away four years ago. I can't help but feel somewhat guilty as I haven't spent as much time with him as I...

    Savinelli vs Stanwell

    I was looking at a couple estates and wanted to know what people think about Stanwell. I am either going to grab a Savinelli or Stanwell but have never owned a Stanwell. It's a Stanwell Colonial and a Savinelli Spring. I have several Savinelli pipes and think they're all great! But I kind of...

    Dorchester and Dunbar

    I was fortunate enough to get a few ounces of both of these blends, and wow! If I could smoke these every day, I would no doubt load my pipe with them every morning! (These blends are a great first pipe of the day).The Dunbar is smooth and has a deep roundness to it, which took me by surprise...

    Captain Earl's Private Stock

    Received some of this blend for Christmas and after only two bowls I love it. Reminds of Star of the East Flake a bit but a little more balanced. The Latakia is blended beautifully with the deep dark virginias and I find myself enjoying the back and forth between the Virginia and smoky  Latakia...

    Youtube Pipe Presenters

    I'm forfeiting all credit for this thread to PB. He started it with the "what happened to PipefriendCHS?" And it got me thinking, actually I thought about posting this before, but who are some of your favorite Youtube pipe community presenters, if you happen to watch? I enjoy a few but some...

    Cornel & Diehl Red Carpet

    What do you guys think? I put it through the search bar but nothing came up. Lately almost everything I've been smoking is a C&D product but I can't wrap my head around this one... The tin was from 2014 and it smells absolutely wonderful in the tin. I opened it prob 6 months ago and put it right...

    2009 Fillmore

    Smoking a 2009 tin of Fillmore for the past week and it is simply superb! It has got to be the richest VaPer I've ever smoked. Tonight I loaded it in an old GBD estate that I haven't taken to at all (I was ready to give up on this pipe) and it is delivering a mouthwatering smoke! Unbelievably...

    Price hike on GLP and C&D blends

    Kinda bummed about this for fear the rest of the pipe tobacco world will also start going up and I'm not sure it will stop. Smokingpipes and P&C taking the 2oz GLP tins from $10.41 to $10.63 and C&D also going up .22 on the 2 ouncers. But the big hike is on the 8 oz tins couple dollars for GLP...

    English blends for a VaPer guy

    Looking for a few good English blends. Lately they are what I've really been craving and that's new for me. I'm going to blame the infamous Ozark Wizard for this recent development. :suspect:  I tend to lean towards the lighter English blends that are well balanced, mild, with slight sweetness...

Favorites in my fridge right now: Stone Russian imperial stout Founders Imperial Stout (I also like their Breakfast Stout)...

    C&D Perique

    I gotta be honest, this stuff stinks! I mean it has some serious STANK on it... I get a little wiff here and there of the periquey spice... but overall, horse crap might smell better.... I've bought McClelland blending perique and it smells great, this C&D variety.... :affraid: :affraid...

    GL Pease

    Lately I've been searching through the archives and any time I look into GL Pease blends it seems Mr. Pease himself often comments on many of the threads. Usually, he's clarifying a thing or two on said blend, sometimes he's offering a bit of wisdom on blending, smoking, packing, tamping, or...
