    A G.L. Pease for a Perique Lover

    Well, I'm constructing a new tobacco order, and believe I should experience some of Greg Pease's blends. I do love Perique, so was drawn to the heavier Perique blends.

    Great Tennessee Pipe Shop Discovered

    While taking lunch the other day, I got on my phone to search for a pipe tobacco source around me. I was almost on top of this one called Ye Ole Pipe Shoppe & Cigar Lounge in Jackson, TN. Since I had some time left, I walked over, and it was a really nice shop with some harder to find tobaccos...

    Hello from Tennessee

    Fellow pipe smokers, I've just registered and for a quick intro I was smoking pipes quite a bit with a preference for perique blends. I also occasionally smoke cigars. For various reasons, I've tapered off on both, but still have interest. I really like learning about tobacco types, the culture...
