After a great meal is there anything better than a long relaxing smoke?

Perhaps some adult beverage or an espresso to accompany it?

Lets hear from you!

personally I prefer petersons, the bit is just very comfortable to me. of course they were also my first nice pipe.

i always have trouble finding local sources for fresh tobacco, I HATE smoking dried out old stale tobacco. I'd rather just not smoke.

haven't picked up my pipe in almost a year

These gents are well regarded as a tabbaco vendor> http://www.smokingpipes.com/tobacco/tinned/


My first pipe was a Peterson from the shop in Dublin. Still enjoy it!

Jim, aren't those Cuban sticks illegal in your neck of the woods?

I'm only an occasional cigar smoker now, but here are some of my favorites:
Cheap, basic smoke-DeNobili
Short smoke-Trinidad Reyes, Partagas Culebras
Medium long smoke-Partagas Series D No4, Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure #2
Long time smoke-Montecristo A, Partagas Lusitania

Never took to the pipe, too hot on my lips and I feared for my wine-tasting palate.

i'm a big fan of GL Pease tobacco, particularly the Maltese Falcon. i used to blend my own, but Pease does a better job than i do. :) i have a bunch of pipes, old and new, handmade and factory, but my plain 50s GBD billiard is probably my favorite. i've smoked a lot of university flake in that pipe. cigar wise, i'm all over the map. i've been working my way through a box of early 80s Bolivars, lately. really tasty.
