    I've got several tins of OGS in the cellar, and I blame Puff for getting me hooked on (I mean introducing me to) this one.

    GAF is a flake toby produced by the biggest ugliest gorilla in captivity . His name is "Orlik" although he also answers to "Dunhill" but don't call him late for dinner! He'll sit on you if you do and that's how I discovered GAF! ;) I stole a flake right from his {we're not supposed to say on PSF} crack and smoked a bowl while I waited until that hairy, smelly beast got off of me!

    GAF = Dunhill Flake

    The Lane is a good shop.....I've bought plenty of pipes from them....baccy not so much.....but that just cause as much as I buy I'd be broke all the time. So on-line is my go to way to purchase baccy.

    Capstan is another Orlik requisition. Sadly, only available in Europe and UK.
    Puff answered the GAF question a few posts ago.

    The OGS has me pondering all manner of flake. Unfortunately, I won't be buying too much of it from Tobacco Lane since their tobacco prices are way high. They had a tin of Peterson's University Flake for $26.99 that I can buy on line at Cup O' Joe for $9.60. However, Tobacco Lane seemed to have decent prices on their pipes.

    I just finished a 100 g tin of it and I didn't like it. It wasn't bad but it seemed very bland. The tin note was good but when I lit up a pipefull it was like I was drawing hot air. Maybe I've gotten spoiled by aromatics and English/Balkan blends. If I can't find an aro or English blend I'll stick with Carter Hall.

    OGS is a go-to blend for me, I really like the stuff. I like to fully rub it out and pack it medium loose in a large bowl. It has a really nice sweet, refreshing flavor, and just the right amount of nicotine to be satisfying but not overwhelming at all. Overall a great smoke in my opinion.

    I got to try it last night. I love the tin smell but did not get the taste or smell in the room note..yet? Its early and I only had one pipeful, sometimes takes a few for a blend to hit me in the face or not. I do like how it smokes and the taste I got. It was kind of like a mild navy with ahint of sweetness. I was slightly disapointed.

    Is it just me or does BluesGuy look like Popeye's long lost uncle Pipe-eye?
