Grousemoor Plug has landed!
Well now I reach a problem. The Erinmore will stay sealed until I run out of the tin (less a few bowls) that I have jarred up and feel the need to smoke some more. I have about an ounce of Night Train left from a 2oz tin, and a few bowls worth of both of the Esoterica blends from samples I received. Should I jar them up now while the real estate is available, or let them stay sealed until what I already have is gone....decisions, decisions...
None of the stuff I got, except the Erinmore, has a chance at real aging, anyway. If I decide to age either of the others, I'll order more of them after I'm a little ways into what I already have.
EXCELLENT choice! One of my favorite blends. If you like Grousemoor, you'll fall in love with Grousemoor Plug
That's either a teeny, tiny knife, or one hell of a 'plug'!
What do you buy that by - the acre?
It's a one pound plug.
He probably got a pound. I think Milan had it, but you had to buy a pound at a time. I don't have that much But I have a few ounces!
Edit: Beat me to the punch! I was right though, 1lb....stuff is dense as anything, too. When I cut up my Kendal and Grousemoor plugs to fit them into jars, my hand started hurting after the second slice. The stuff could be used as a weapon
Dang ,brother that is a chunk what is the weight.
It's a one pound block.
Ya know you are tempting me my pad is bad enough.....lol - OK where did you get it
Mars has 3 SG plugs in stock.
readin PSF and so many of you thought highly of older Grabows, so found an older freehand in great shape on Ebay. Reading PFS cost me a total of 11$. Can't wait to fire the old geezer up. I think its highly interesting to see the tobacco choices on this forum. Ithink Britts Balkan is in my near future. Esteban......

Your very welcome. Enjoy what you get!
My order from Walker Briar Works arrived this a.m. Thank God my wife wasn't home when it came; we had the "talk" on Sunday about my pipe "obsession" (according to her anyway) which foiled my plans for that Wally Frank Canadian that db had for sale (congrats to the lucky PSF'er that got it, btw).
I broke out the stem restoration kit they sold me and went to work. It's said to remove oxidation from stems without the need for buffing, just rubbing the paste into the problem area and wiping dry. Well....granted the stem I experminted on is a lovely greenish/brown hue, so it may take a few applications. I'll try it on another pipe before I cry horses%#t.
However, I did receive the MM Country Gentleman I thought I'd throw in to the order just to fill in space in the shipping container (thinking green here) and was I surprised. The quality of cob in the CG vs the MM Pride is substantial.
I've been forced off briar purchases for the next little while by love muffin, and I've determined to focus more on a tobacco cellar when I do resume buying, but I think I'll definately buy a few more MM CG's as time goes on.
When I first signed up on this forum I thought smoking a cob was for hillbilly's & rednecks (which being a native West Virginian I've had an earfull of) but man have I been schooled by the fine folks here.
I have my rotation of briars and love them, but I think having a few more cobs in the stable is a must! And the MM Country Gentleman is a fine cob.
It is, somebody here must have messing with you, cracker.
Okay in case you don't know, I'm teasing. These new mods are pretty serious, so I feel the need for the disclaimer.
I have been fighting the urge to buy some Sears & Roebuck bib overalls...
P&C is giving 29% off all their H&H blends (except Marquee series) at checkout until 3/2, so I thought I'd use it as an excuse for the latest order this morning:
100g Grey Havens
100g Deep Hollow
100g Royal Cajun Dark
100g Brindle Flake
50g Orlik Golden Sliced
4oz PS Pistacchio
8oz H&H LJ Heart Virginia
1 pouch Sir Walter Raleigh
50g Solani 633
Whatever excuse we can find to justify saving 5 bucks on a $100 order, right?
You will be busy for a while.
