These gents are well regarded as a tabbaco vendor> http://www.smokingpipes.com/tobacco/tinned/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
Hahah.. not if they are gifts from a traveling diplomat...:smile1: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.
