    Recommendations for Oriental Mixtures with no Latakia

    I would second C&D's Boker Or from their Hebraic Series.

    If you like Bayou Morning than I would hardily suggest C&D's Poplar Camp. It's an excellent Va/Per in bulk. Far as I'm concerned Russ Ouelette at Pipes and Cigars blends the best Va/Pers. His VR Blend that he makes for SHPC(Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club) is probably the finest I've smoked. It's...

    C&D 839: Boker Or Morning Light (Hebraica Series)

    I've tried two of the Hebraica series. First I tried the Halav U'Dvash. I loved the list of tobaccos used but I was terribly disappointed. It seemed to be a bit of a confused mess to me. The ingredients just didn't seem to jive with each other. Boker Or on the other hand is much better. The...

    Single Malt Value

    I prefer anything from Islay but rarely can afford the big names like Lagavulin and Ardbeg. If your a budget guy looking for less expensive alternatives than I suggest Black Bottle and Islay Mist. The Black Bottle took down a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco Spirits Competition. The Black...

    Favorite Boubon or U.S. Whiskey?

    I'm more of a Scotch drinker these days but a bourbon Manhattan is still my favorite cocktail. I'm an old Wild Turkey 101 man. If your looking for a good inexpensive bourbon than I suggest Fighting Cock 103 proof 6yr.old. Here in Jersey I get it for about $18. It's pretty tasty stuff and I...

    IPA's!! So many to choose from nowadays...

    You guys in California should be drinking Lagunitas. They make great IPAs. I particularly like their Hop Stoopid which only comes in 22oz bottles and will make you stupid after drinking a couple. Their regular IPA and their Maximus are great also. Here in the east I too enjoy Hop Devil and I...

    Sherlock Holmes Pipe Club's "VR Blend"

    I purchased a 4oz. bag of VR and I blinked and it was gone. That's how good this stuff is.

    In the category of "best cheap whiskey," I nominate....

    Just bought a bottle of White Horse Scotch. For less than $15 it is quite drinkable. It supposedly has the famed Lagavulin and Talisker in the blend. If you like a lot of peat in your scotch than this may not float your boat but overall this is a keeper. Much better than JW Red, Dewars, or J&B.

    SHPC VR Blend

    Who cares what it looks like? I bought some of it in bulk and the flakes were somewhat broken up. Just rub it out, the tobacco I mean, and enjoy. VR is a great blend that any lover of Va/Pers should try ASAP. That reminds me, I need to order some more.
