    So far I have smoked my way through some cherry aro from my local B&M, FMOTT and 3OAKS Syrian. Time to see what this STM is all about.

    What is JFH? Not sure I've heard of that one. That's funny that you put that request in that they draw that picture for you... is that something they normally do? Like I said, haven't heard of that particular retailer. I'm putting in a Samuel Gawith order over at pipesandcigars.com right now, they've got a nice stock in at a discount, $11 per tin, and they have Squadron Leader in stock. Hooray!

    I looked at justforhim.com (JFH) for some squadron leader but they did not have any. I thought it would be funny if I could get them to draw something for me.

    Archer, don't spend all that refund on tobacco. Need to save some leaf for the rest.

    Sounds like a great order... I am curious to know what you think of Treebeard and Isengard

    Just read and watched his videos on the 100 year old tobacco, good stuff.

    I'll post back after I have smoked some of the middle earth series.

    Thanks to this forum I have tried more tobacco and spent more money than I would have without it.

    So far I still like FMOTT the most out of everything I have tried.

    Out of the JFH order, the only thing I would reorder would be the STM. Although I haven't tried the treebeard yet.

    Ruins were alright. I did not care too much for the old toby.

    The one thing that I really liked about all of them is that they seemed to stay lit a whole lot easier than other things I have smoked and produced a lot of white smoke!

    FMOTT and FM and some really good toby.

    Perhaps my next TAD I'll order some of the LOTR series. A friend ordered some a while back and I've tried them. Just need stock up for myself :D

    Gratz on the Order. Pics please if they draw on your box!

    I don't know about the others, but if you like FMOTT, you oughta try Odyssey by G.L. Pease. That stuff is fantastic! Definitely one of my very favorite Latakia-heavy blends, such a HUGE taste! Not as mild as FMOTT, really, but I like some extra fullness. The whole Frog series, while exceedingly delicious, is just too mild for me to smoke very often. I love my Nightcap, Ol' Limey Bastard, etc. Definitely pick up some Odyssey if you get a chance.

    They printed out the first picture shown in this pipe blog http://briarfiles.blogspot.com/2009/10/featured-pipe-smoker-fictional-gandalf.html and taped it to my envelope. They are good sports at JFH.

    Odyssey has been added to my list of tins to buy once I smoke up some of the stuff I already got.

    Frog Morton On the Town + others
    Squadron Leader
    Nightcap
    Wessex Burley Broadcut
    Ol Limey Bastard
    Dunhill Early Morning Pipe
    Dunhill Nightcap
    Odyssey by G.L. Pease

    I tried the whole Pipe Weed Series, Shortcut To Mushrooms and Ruins Of Isengard were my two favorites, JFH has some great stuff, the Whisky Biscuit Gravy, Blue Balls & Magic Flute are good too just to name a few.
