I have been smoking the briar for about a year; enjoyed cigars before that. My first pipe was a Brigham Voyageur! But my favourite pipe is my Savinelli Roma 673; I also enjoy a cob now and then. My favourite Tobaccs are Burleys; love Virginia’s but they don’t love me! Not into aromatics generally speaking (yet).
Welcome! I believe Toronto has an active pipe club if your interested. A couple of my buddies drove up from the States to attend the clubs BBQ at Michael Parks place last summer.
We've been to Toronto a couple of times in the 90's to visit Julius Vesz' shop in the Royal York. Wonderful memories, we had great times. While Mrslax and the kids were doing normal tourist things I spent to much time and money sitting on a throne in Julius' shop/museum and in the la Casa del Habano. I smoked the last Monti #2 from one of trips last year.
The huge coffee cup I nicked from Tim Horton's is still my wife's go to cup. She'll pull it out of a dirty dishwasher to use it. :shock:
