Just had my first bowl of pipers dream and just as I thought no regrets. I loaded up my new stubby nose warmer and fired away. This blend was good till the end and I had no problem smoking it to the bottom of the bowl to start working on that cake buildup. I'm a fan of Boswell's northwoods and other blends they make. I would strongly recommend Boswell's tobaccos and there customer service is second to none. I would also recommend watching dagner performance on YouTube for some great pipesmoking information.
