    So plenty of people got pipes for Christmas. Did any of you opt for tobacco? I got plenty of pipes (too many, really, if there is such a thing) this past year, so for the holidays I wanted to stock up on baccy. The first shipment arrived from P&C a few weeks ago...

    6x 8oz H&H Anniversary Kake for the cellar
    1x 8oz Esoterica Dunbar
    Dorcester is still on B/O and I'll get that... eventually.

    Today the second portion arrived! I got a bit of money for Christmas and that was what I needed to order this lot off a fine gent. All are from '06...

    4 lbs Stokkebye Luxury Curly Cut
    1 lb SG Firedance
    100g MacBaren Blackwoods Flake
    and he even threw in a few Drew Estates Acid Blondies

    A few trades and samples arrived while I was gone, too, so it was a heckuva day!

    That is awesome! You planning on doing some cellaring, or are they for smoking now?

    At the rate I go through things, this is definitely mostly going back in the cellar. I want to crack into the Blackwoods sooner than later, but that requires whittling back my current "to smoke" stock.

    Jaw just literally dropped seeing all that... Iam having to wait to income tax check to make any new big orders. I have three pounds sitting in my cart waiting no begging for me to hit the checkout button. Very nice cellar starter kit... :D

    Gunslinger,

    Pipe give-aways have been on the rise in these parts lately. Maybe some of those "too many" pipes need to be put in a few of our stockings while you're in the Christmas spirit. :whis:

    Indeed. I can't claim to have started that trend, but I did contribute. There may be more down the road, though, who knows.

    Kudos to you. I wasn't aware. The trend is bigger than I realized. When the addiction takes me beyond my three briars and some cobs I'll have to remember to contribute to the noble effort.
