In regards to this HBT thread and the forum in general. I have my favorites, most people do. We all have two or three pipe tobaccos, 2-3 beer types, same for steak, engine oil, and power saws and anything else for that matter. I seem too always go back to one consistently. Not all the time but enough to make it the old comfortable one.

Doesn't mean the others are not good. I just have my favorites. To each their own.

PS... This is a rant, do what you want. It's what I do...

I found about a 1/4 ounce pipe tobacco today in the bottom of my pipe holder. It's called Spartacus. I think I must have bought it maybe 3-4 years ago from John T's. I am not sure if it is the Savinelli pipe which is getting quite well broken in and I'm now using the balsa filter, or if the John T's Spartucus is just awesome.

I tried to find a description of it on the net.. no luck. It is dark and brown tobacco. Creamy, cool, smooth and just slightly sweet. At this point it is blowing away, well almost blowing away the VA #1.

Seems as though years ago I spent some time testing out tobaccos and found ones I loved and was either too lazy to toss them or forsighted enough to keep a few around. Now two more are back again. Wonder what else I forgot about? Ha!

Just got an estate pipe off eBay. Looks to be in great condition. I haven't ordered any tobacco yet and would like some advice. Back in the day a buddy let me try a cherry vanilla blend out of his hooka and I was amazing. I would like to find a mild cherry blend for my first smoke. Could anyone shoot me a good recommendation of a tobacco and a good place to order online since we are without a good smoke shop around here

I've gotten all of my pipes off of ebay. You can find some awesome estate pipes there. I started with Prince Albert, captain black and carter hall. Borkum and riff have a cherry one, however it's not that great and burns Hot. There is a site out there for pipe tobacco reviews. A quick search on google and you'll be able to find it.

Hey Lex990

A decent inexpensive tobacco to try is a Prince Albert one. Found at most drug stores. He has a few blends. You can buy one of them blindly. It will be a nice smoke!

Cheers!

Hit up the West Coast Pipe Show in Las Vegas on Saturday, it was a blast!

I second that. Also, Captain Black. Can't go wrong with either of those, pick a blend that sounds appealing and give it a try.

Will be placing a tobacco order with Boswell here soon. Anyone want an ounce of anything for a trade?

Dan (NB)

The Cream Ale and Amber ale were fabulous! (it's been written a guy can use that word with out losing his man card when describing beer) Sorry so late to respond.

Spent most of last night working on my brew stand. It's nothing fancy, about 70 bucks in wood. I built it single tier which would have been great if I was all electric but it isn't. It didn't look right.. no flow. So I tore it apart lastnight and redesigned. I'll use a chugger pump to transfer the fluids around.
