    Finding tobacco release dates

    Is there a way to find out when a certain tobacco was first sold in the US? As you know, FDA regulations are going to severely impact the availability of blends that appeared after 2007. I would like to know if there is an easy way to determine if a certain blend falls in the FDA bleach bucket...

    Somerset Slices Gone.

    Called Peretti for an order of Somerset Slices and was told they don't make it anymore. Sad, sad day. :cry:

    Fun contest

    Would you like some Kendal Dark?

    I love it, but gives me the hiccups. I have a small bag, maybe between 1 and 1.5 oz, that I would like to give away. Preferably, but not necessarily, to someone that never tried Kendal Dark. Just post here that you want it and later tonight I will pick a winner using

    The bulk bags were received in an earlier package and already have 3 or 4 oz missing, each. Today, waiting for me was the Arko stick and the Elizabethan Mix. Thanks, PB. You know how to treat a brother right. I hope you didn't throw your back on the way to the post office.

    McClelland Stave Aged Virginia

    I was looking forward to try this new series from McClelland, i.e., the new blends with a piece of cask in the tin. They come with a little cube of charred white oak that is supposed to come from a barrel used to age Bourbon. I read with anticipation. Unfortunately, my...

    Louisiana Flake

    Never tried it, but got a few ounces on a dare. I read it has a flavoring of some kind. Will it ghost my pipes?

    House of Calabash

    I just came across this site, but I've heard very little about the blender (Steven Brooks) and nothing about the the blends. There are no reviews on The blends are a bit expensive (some of them more than just a bit). Did anyone try them? If so, are they really worth the price?

    Park Lane Tobacconist

    Did any of you order from them? How was the service? I am thinking about trying their house blends, but has very few entries. Any recommendations? Read a lot of good things about Red Paramour, but I'm especially curious about their version of Bengal Slices. Any suggestions...

    Cleaning clogged airways

    I have a couple of pipes that, with time, have a build up of carbon in the airways. They are canadians and have a long shank. I would like to clear the airway myself, possibly with a drill bit and hand vise. Do you guys know what size drill should I get? And where can I find long drill bits, say...

    Bob Runowski's blends

    Can someone tell me what C&D blends were developed by Bob Runowski? I also read some time ago that Bob had come up with something to replace ERR. I think it was a mixture of SWR and some other blend. Does anyone remember the recipe? Thanks for the help

    Slicing Jacknife Plug...

    Had my first encounter with Jacknife Plug today and have a question. I was expecting a plug but I think that I got a crumble cake instead. When slicing the plug, the slices just kept coming undone and I was unable to have a single neat and tidy slice like those appearing in the label. I smoke...
