Greetings fellow pipers... Okay, just a general thread here, but what did you guys get that was pipe/tobacco related for Christmas? Me, I got 4 ounces of Haunted Bookshop, which I am smoking right now in a 1/8 bent rusticated Rinaldo egg... quite tasty indeed! I also got a tin of Kingfisher Double Cut Krumble Kake, a tin of C&D Kajun Kake, and a tin of Captain Earle's Mystic Blend (anyone know this one?)... But, the big surprise: a Corona Old Boy -- Ya, baby! My smoking experience has definitely been taken to the next level with this great lighter! So, what did you guys get, included you Secret Santa participants?

Best Holiday wishes,

Trout Bum

No pipe related stuff for me either, but a wonderful day and lots-o-gifts that I need. Several reffing paraphernalia (all in black, of course) and dress shirts and ties (my boss is a stickler for dressing "professional").

A GPS would seem like an ideal gift for you... isn't that one of those things that tells you where to go and how to get there fast.

No pipe related gifts other than the great ones I got from my Secret Santa. I had my son home on leave for a week and that was "gift" enough for me and the wife.

yeah Puffs but Tasha normally tells me where to go and how to get there... matter o fact I think the last time she gave me the directions was when I ungratefully returned that Christmas Present. :D :D :D :D :D

For Christmas I got a 2oz tin of GLP Key Largo and a 2oz tin of C&D Exausted Rooster.
Worked on the Key Largo all day the 26th. It was a good thing I was home all day cause it took it all to smoke a bowl of it. It seemed a bit more moist than what I'm used to so I had to work at it, which helped to enjoy it more. I started the bowl (my #6 Tinsky Rhodesian) in the morning, and would smoke for a while, then go out to work on a project around the property, then in at lunch to eat and smoke a bit more, then back outside in the afternoon, finishing the bowl after supper. Since I'm such a noobie at the finer tined tobaccos and lack the sophistication to more accurately describe it, I would have to say the label description was very accurate; Deep, Earthy and Creamy. I feel that this would be an excellent candidate to cellar.
I havent tried the Exausted Rooster yet, maybe New Years day.

My wife, God bless her, gave me a gift certificate to Smoky's which turned into a beautiful (and unusual) Bjarne nose warmer and a tin of Dan Tobacco Shannon. My son built me a wonderful two tiered tobacco table. It has 12 jars that will hold about 6 oz of bulk each, has a shelf for tins and a box to hold all my cleaning supplies. It's amazing. When I can I'll post some pictures. :cheers:

Tom Eltang pipes are gorgeous. Don't have any but I often look at his site, along with Roush, Rad Davis, Mark Tinsky, Brad Pohlmann, the list goes on. All pipes I can't afford right now! Nothing better than looking at amazing craftsmanship! (well, maybe smoking them would be even better! 8) )
