I took up the pipe in hopes of finding the pipe tobacco whose room note I recall from when I was a kid. No one in my family that I can recall smoked a pipe but certainly I was around other older men who did. I'm 43 now so I'm thinking back to the 1970's. I'm sure the blend was a bulk and had no name or 1,000 different names depending on the B&M from which it came. It had a rich, pleasant room note with maybe a hint of vanilla, or maybe not. I know it when I smell it and the only way, really, that I can describe it is "old time pipe". I wouldn't have any way to know of what it consisted but if I had to guess it probably involved Burley, VA, and cavendish and/or black cavendish. I'm guessing some of the older fellas around here, maybe 60+ years of age will know what I'm referring to. When I smell it I think of both old, retired guys as well as 1940's movies. Make sense? Any ideas?
