    So I am curious so I would like to throw out a question to the group. Name some famous pipe smokers and what was their preferred blend of pipe tobacco. Who can come up with the longest list? Serious answers please. I mean I've seen Popeye run spinach through his pipe several times as well. Thanks in advance.

    I think former President Gerald Ford was a Field & Stream man for the most part.

    I always wondered about Hef
    If we are to believe the marketing C&D has blends that either were smoked by or emmulate blends smoked by Bing Crosby and Albert Einstein

    Einstein smoked Revelation, Shelby Foote smoked Prince Albert, Edward G. Robinson Blend, and a blend from a shop in Memphis called "Shiloh" that he created, William Faulkner smoked Prince Albert and 965, Joseph Stalin smoked Dunhill Royal Yacht (supposedly)...

    Maybe he would have been forced to behave better to the free world to get tobacco he could stand.:)

    Back to business. Check this out. It is a retail toby shop in Beverly Hills. click on the different blends and the owner mentions the celebs that use his different blends. Remember back a few years, there was no on-line purchases and many celebs just ran down to this shop. Hope this helps.
    Happy Easter to all you believers out there.
