    Dead Mouse in a Tin back in stock.

    Very limited. 2 tins per day. "Dangit!" I had to order other stuff to get the free shipping. I checked other suppliers, but do not see it elsewhere yet. Maybe it just came in yesterday at Smoking Pipes. For those of you scratching your heads. Dead Mouse in a Tin is Samuel Gawith 1792...

    Some things to know about the new software.

    This new software seems to use a fairly intelligent SPAM system. Sometimes it flags a post. Or more often a user. Those go into an "Approval Queue" that catches my attention and I have to use some tools to study the problem. I make a decision and Spammers get blocked. It could also be a...

    Want to get rid of the Ads?

    Sign in or sign up. Register as a BoB forum member. Read the instuctional thread on How to Use the New Software. You can disable the ads yourself. I am told it looks quite cluttered with advertising. To be honest, I would not know. I run so many ad blockers that I almost never see any ads.

    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!
