    Sorry p.......this was a tough one to pull off for me. The auction ended five minutes of my wife and I meeting the grandparents of my daughters fiance. I snuck in a last second bid literally standing in the foyer of their home as we were all introduced. No one was the wiser, but I was surprised to win this one with my bid (Sunday evening).

    Today I ordered a straight Patriot and one of those forever stems. Apart from my 2012 POY Nosewarmer this is my favorite style cob.

    It's been a pretty good while since I purchased any tobacco that I haven't tried. You guys have hammered on some of these blends to the point of being unable to resist. I sold 2 old office chairs, and a used mini-fridge to some neighbors with a kid going to college. Of course old garage stuff is marked for TAD, so I placed an order on SmokingPipes.Com:

    Dan's Hamborger Veermaster
    Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired & Stockton
    McClelland Classic Virginia 2010, Virginia Perique Flake 2015, and Old World Classic 5115

    Gracie is full of fish and chips, but is still grateful enough to guard dad's new stash.

    Boswell's pipe #11, the Weathered Stone Stubby Nose warmer. http://www.boswellpipes.com/wsstubbynose5213.html

    Got a sample of their Northwoods tobacco and fired it up this afternoon. What a great pipe!!!! Clenches perfect! Feels great in the hand and is a real beauty!

    Thanks! We really love her. Great family dog. She will wind up when the kids want to play or chill and watch a movie with us. She hikes trails, goes off roading, road trips, etc. She also smokes a cob!

    BTW- one of the fun parts of buying tobacco is putting it in jars.

    My new order from 4 Noggins. This is the first time I have ordered tobacco online, other than winning an auction on the bay of course. It came in while I am smoking a rack of ribs and about to throw on some ears of corn and some Cheddarwurst. To top it off, the Boston 1776 is 4 years old! Now I don't want to smoke it, just add it to my cellar. :( [​IMG]

    Lovers of Three Nuns and Capstan take note!

    Originally posted elsewhere.

    Dear Pipesmoker Friend,

    Another tobacco will go out from the market: Scandinavian Tobacco confirmed us, that they definitely stop production of Capstan (Blue and Yellow) and Three Nuns.
    We do still have in Stock, but we will not be available to refill again our warehouse with this product.
    For this reason we are writing to you, to give you the opportunity to order as long as there is some.

    We wish you and your families the best!!
    Happy pipe smoking and warmest regards,
    Daniel.



    Somewhere along the line someone either posted. PM'd or emailed me requesting to see the results of the dehydration of the 65+ y/o Three Nuns I purchased but for the life of me I can't find it. So since this news is open I thought I'd post a before and after and it does smoke very nicely in the 1940 Dunhill Cutty.

    oh I was just gonna pop in and say that my KC from the group buy came in and I jar'd it all up. Then I decided to scroll through.
    Thor.
    Really.
    Thor.

    And all the rest of you enablin' hooligans have me wanting to buy a new pipe, and a nice one at that. Alas I am moving at the end of this month so my pipe budget is 0 USD.

    Luckily I paid for that PSF pipe of the year...

    My wife and I went to Chicago today, and I was able to convince her that a trip to Chicago without visiting Iwan Riess is a grave injustice. So, I was very pleasantly surprised at their tobacco prices. Much much cheaper than buying in Wisconsin. Not to mention their choices. :startl: After a nice discussion on straight Virginia's, and their not having any that really fit what I was looking for,(not their fault in the least) I walked out with these two. Over all, a great experience and I am already trying to figure out how to convince my wife I will need to go there as often as possible.
