Last night/this morning while reading posts on pipe cleaning and pipe cleaners I figured it would be a good time to clean mine. I decided to use bacardi 151 to do the cleaning,and while doing so I wondered "what would happin if I soaked some baccy in some of it? ". So with an extra snuff can I had I poured some rum and mixed it with the baccy and put the top back on.

This morning after waking up I mixed it up a bit and let it set for a couple hours with the lid off so some of the alcohol would evaporate (who wants to light 151 that close to their face? ) well I used my medico pipe for 2 reasons,it was cheap,and it has a filter. and packed a 1/2 bowl just to try. IT WAS WONDERFUL ! sweet,with a slight punch and you could taste the rum flavor. It was a bit wet so I am leaving it uncapped for awhile to dry out a little.

I used what I mixed up as far as tobbacos,black and gold cavendish,burly,and some light virginia tobacco. mostly black and gold cavendish.

You're right: HMMMM.
I've often considered it, but never have rum in the house.

You never did flaming shots in college? I've seen more than a few beards and mustaches melt off the faces of uncomprehending drunk friends! :affraid:

He put that down on the bottom line of his post. I had to go back and read it too.

you might as well go ahead and get a "spritzing" spray bottle so that you can start re-hydrating you baccy with different alcohols.

I only went to College to study the art of partying,female anatomy and sex ed., allow me to explain. I lived 30 minutes from JMU,and UVA plus there is an all girls college by the name of Mary Baldwin 15 minutes away. I never went to college as a student,but I did spend alot of time at all 3 doing the things listed above. That being said I learned early that flames are even more dangerous when drinking. A friend invented a drink that had ,goldslager,avelanch,aftershock and some homemade stuff. he called it flaming dragon venom for a very good reason. The flame was dang near invisable and if you drank more than one you would swear you was poisoned. Ithe first time I had it he failed to tell me he lit it and I didn't look for a flame, I got burnt more ways than 1 with that drink.


on the tobaccos there was admirals choice,Sir walter raleigh,half and half, captain black,capatain black royal ,and captain black gold, & borkum riff cherry, all mixed up.

I bought a 50ml bottle of Bacardi's rum and collected some specimens to experiment with.

My Science Project: The Rehydration and Infusion of Sundry Baccys with White Rum

Now stewing: P&C's Marble Kake (1 bar), GLP's Montgomery (~ 2 bowls), P&W #196 (~ 3 bowls) and Exclusiv Royal, a German biter, an unfortunate closeout purchase, crispy now (1/2 tin). I considered some dried out Penzance, but there are some delicate souls out there who might correctly think I was making hamburger out of sacred cows. Next time.

My gratitude to the OP for the inspiration.
