    Squadron Leader

    I have been trying to make an effort to clean up some of the huge numbers of open tins around here.  But sometimes I cannot resist looking elsewhere.  It's like having to eat leftovers.  I can only stand it so long, and I need something different.   So I knocked the dust off a box with some...

    Drucquer & Sons - Trafalgar

    Crikey! (I always wanted to use that word.) Amazing how fast I got to the bottom of that 8oz tin. :shock: Tobacco reviews really says it all. A lot of comparisons to other blends. And they are all right. Has the portions correct in the blend to be the standard by which all others may be...

    Well done sir! :cool: I picked up some tins a while back. Dated 1-21-20. Might be the first group. Might not. Doesn't matter. What can I say? The tin description really says what needs to be said. It's very good. I have noticed that bowl to bowl seems to be changing in taste a bit...

    Bolio hemp coffee filter

    Eggy got one of these in his Secret Santa package. I am very curious as to how well it works and holds up. I tried a metal filter in my Chemex maker and it was very poor quality coffee. And it failed to hold up. So I have stuck with the paper filters. Any reviews, tips appreciated!

    What does unobtainium look like?

    This is one form it can take.  Something in the Tavern Tobacco "Rose of Zanzibar" is similar to that tobacco used in "Bracken Flake".  Differing condiment tobaccos.  Bracken Flake is more heavily stoved.  But there is something shared.  I love it, whatever "it" is.   This tin had fallen off a...
