    so i bought some H&H on a whim to see what was up... big mistake. i smoked it out of my falcon and ill be damned that it ghosted the metal stem (the bowl to of coarse) what i can i do to exercise the demon. now ive cleaned the stem with alcohol many times, even smoked some Gawith and hoggarth black irish X rope and it still taste of anise. any tips to save this thing would be awesome

    I am surprised, been smoking Falcons on and off for fifty years and never had issues like that!....but never had H&H...it must be powerful stuff! :eek:
    OT
    btw to exercise the demon you could both run around the block a few times!.

    How much of it did you smoke? I have a pipe that has a H&H ghost...but my great grandfather smoked nothing else out of it for 6 months...

    What he said...

    I'll trade you a tub of H&H for the falcon:P

    Never got an anise taste from H&H

    man i smoked half a bowl and at first i didnt mind it, then i really focused on the taste, and just thinking about it makes me wanna puke. the smell from the pouch turns my stomach. that poor bowl, dont know what to do about that. maybe just a ream and liqueur soak, and a few weeks on the shelf.

    i almost bought M79 just to try it and see what the fuss is about. im so glad i didnt .

    yeah thats one thing ive noticed is how completely different every one tastes and smells things. i did a trade with someone, i sent him DH 965 and he sent me Byzantium, and he swears that the two taste exactly the same, i could see some similaritys but to say they are the exact same is a stretch. at least to my taste buds.

    of CH and call me in the morning.

    I've never smoked this tobacco that can't seem to commit to one way or another (Half & Half). Perhaps this is the problem.

    And furthermore, two halves of anything equal a whole. This tobacco obviously relies on excuses for not being able to complete itself in composition. I can't accept that in an employee or a tobacco.
