    I love my EMP... hands down the ONLY thing I start my mornings with. I had heard before that McClelland's AM pipe is just as good as the DH version, but I want to hear it from you guys. I just think I can save a few bucks buying the AM in bulk, IF it compares to the EMP. So.... What say you???

    I've never tried EMP, but McC AM Pipe is good stuff. Andy could probably give a comparison... ?

    Yeah, I love the stuff. Just trying to see if I can get a little more for a little less...

    Forget both and get some Chelsea Morning.

    I'm not sayin'... I'm just sayin.

    I have about a 1/2 tin of Chelsea left. I will have to re-visit that one, last time it had too much of the "soap" taste for me.

    Soap? Really? Damn. I didn't get that at all.

    I actually think Presbyterian is closer to EMP than Chelsea Morning, but I'm really enjoying my tin of CM and it's worth trying, even though I don't really think it has latakia in it and it's nothing like EMP or AMP.... but hey, I try to be helpful!

    I appreciate the effort!! I will hit the CM again, and see if maybe my tastes have changed a bit. I might have tried to smoke it too early in my "pipe career" so I will give it another go. Thanks!!

    I've got 2 tins up for trade if you want. I like EMP too but found I like the stronger nightcap even more.

    Sure, we can probably work something out. Shoot me a PM and let me know what you're looking for.
