At Marcs suggestion, I bought a tin of this ... Marc, I must thank you for this one ... it's outstanding and is everything you said it was ...


One thing of note about the Sansepolcro is that it's rather on the dry side ... I took a ziplock baggie, lightly misted it with distilled water and put a bunch of this tobacco in it ... after it took on enough moisture to have a rather velvety feel, I tried a bowlful ... wow, what a difference that made ... it burned far cooler and had less bite to it ... a really superior experience ...

3404 - DE Gatsby Luxury Flake. Rolled out and packed then DGT'd for about 6 hours. Burned really well and even smoked fast no real tongue bite

162. C&d campfire just got into piping guys :) thanks to a botl guy. Pretty good stuff so far. Always grew up thinking cob pipes were a gimmick prop or something. Just ordered a sampler from mmc now too.

What's in the blend, Bur? ... just the odds and ends leftovers from other stuff you smoke ??

Pretty much that, and bits and pieces of cigars (clipped heads, busted up ones, etc). I think about one-half of my local shpo's scraps/sweepings went in it too

Well, I guess it does have the virtue of being rather inexpensive ... nice going if you enjoy it ... that, after all, is the whole point of smoking ...

Mark Twain used to say his favorite cigars weren't at all fancy ... so much so that they didn't have little 'belts; on them ...and he was known to smoke more than a dozen a day ... that, in addition to the pipes he also enjoyed to the extent that he was pretty much smoking during all of his waking hours ...

My favorite quote from him:

"As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep and never to refrain when awake. I smoke in bed until I have to go to sleep; I wake up in the night, sometimes once, sometimes twice, sometimes three times, and I never waste any of these opportunities to smoke."

Love that quote, and yes, I stay on the cheaper (ok tightwad) end of our hobby! I haven't taken to nubbing my cigars or sticking them in the pipe yet. I have thought of trimming some churchillls down into "pipe plugs" both to experiment and rarely have time to smoke anything longer than a robusto lately.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

I've done that ... and, while I encourage you to go ahead with the experiment, I found that, for me, it less that successful ... so much of the flavor of a cigar comes from the wrapper, but that influence is very limited if the cigar is cut and a bowl-size "plug" is smoked in a pipe ... too much of the flavor then comes from the binder ... well, for me in any event ... but, don't accept my experiment for yourself ... after all, since taste is such an individual thing, your opinion is the only one that counts for you ...

3317 - I found a few flakes of SG Full Virginia Flake that had been tucked away for over a year with one of my favorite cobs. Finishing it now, absolutely excellent.

That's a good blend and that year of aging is a real bonus

Peter Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake. Creamy molasses but more on the Carmel side. I'm getting more.

Peter Stokkebye Luxery Bulls Eye Flake. Kinda of the same. But mellowed on all accords. Love the presentation. The rest of the OZ. will make a great gift.

My second try at quasi-aromatic blends. (Not sure if these have toppings or not). I gotta say, I'd been missing out.

Back to back

3320 Frog Morton on the Town. Good stuff.
3321 my first bowl Eva! Of Mr. Dunhill Night Cap. Wowzers!! I would compare this to the fullest strength cigars you got.

If you think that your goto Nic Hitter cigar is lacking these days. Go smoke a bowl of Night Cap and hold on. Maybe have a sweet beverage close by.

So I packed one up, trickle method, got it charred good and started reading. I'm building cabinets in the kitchen so I was reading up on pocket hole cabinet facing techniques. Well.... I was reading, and not paying attention to my cadence. All was smooth and smokey. Nothing alarming.
When about 10 minutes into the bowl. My head started spinning. Instantly I knew what was up.

I slammed my coffee and filled my mug up full of water. On the second mug of water the spins slowed. But the shakes started. Partly due to slamming half a cup of joe. But hey, it was good coffee.

I was gonna have to ride this one out. What's color is this one?
Brown Dragon?

Dunhill Night Cap. Fun for the whole family.

Laughing at you, not with you.

Well not right now, but about five days ago I was powering through a bowl of something and started having a nic hit. After the first really bad one where I nearly puked in my car, knew to step away, like you hydrate, and fired it back up about half an hour later.

But yeah, how "Night Cap" helps ya get to sleep after smoking it a bit fast seems odd to me, but I haven't tried it yet.

3323- Peter Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake. I'm running low. This is becoming my new favorite.

The CAO line although has a nice room note, doesn't taste all that great. I think all the toppings really hurt the burn. Almost like an accelerant, causing the tobacco to scorch.


I'm starting to understand why many people prefer not to smoke them. It takes a sense of skill to control not to burn them to hot.

This was my downfall when I smoked a pipe in college. Got tongue bite one night bad after a pub crawl bender. Never turned back

That ^ and I though I had tried the best.

captain black royal.

Small town tobacco outlet for ya

What is this Sorcery! I haven't seen or heard about this yet.

Which Semois? Reserve Du Patron?

That sounds like a good tobacco

Any other pipe baccy cut like Five Brothers? Always a bit shocking after using others to pull out "strings"

And no, I'm not low. I think I figured out last night I have enough cigars for 3-4 years and pipe baccy for at least that long if I can stay off this devil site. If I start bidding again I'll never smoke what I've got.

I've got Some Hillbilly Trash Hash... it's a smooth Latakia blend. Kinda like Bobs Chocolate Flake... but without the chocolate.

Bur's Scraps and Crap sounds delicious!!

Hillbilly-did you purpose blend your Hash? Mine is more leftovers, scraps, clipping off cigars if I remember-truly scraps and crap. Tends toward an "English-cigar blend" as I don't smoke a bunch of aromatics although I did this weekend:

3345 - PS 17 English Luxury Blend
3346 - Pippa Vanilla Cavendish Blend
