Well, after resumingthe pipes after a 20 year layoff after my Beloved Balkan Sobranie 759 disappeared and dusting off my old Jarls and Savinellis, in th e last month I've accumulated about 25 tins of assorted wonderful leaves and bought 10 estate pipes pipes to restore; even found myself getting up in th middle of the night to catch an ebay find. I've gotten a full range of english/balkan blends ranging from C&D Byzantium and S.H. Exotique to C&D Super Balkan, with a few lovely GLP Englishes and H&H blends in the middle. Heavenly. I guess I'll need an intervention, but not yet. to paraphrase I believe St, Francis, " Please LOrd, make me chaste, but not yet."

Laughing You came to the wrong place for an intervention, sir. Welcome to the forum. Although I didn't quit pipe smoking, I also got ticked off when I could no longer obtain BS Virginia #10. (Marty Pulvers currently has four tins @$290 each. Suspect ) So what do you think of current offerings compared to your old favorite? I suppose something like Squadron Leader--in keeping with a theme suggested by your avatar--falls short?

Well, thanks for the welcome. yep, given my prime passion, i had to try Squadron Leader. cyclops i like it. it's not far from sobranie, but lighter, with more subtle flavor I think. good in the morning before I've roasted my pallette with things like super balkan. So far, I think GLP Westminster and H&H White Knight are the closest. Got about 15 more to evaluate. Laughing Say, where's north coast NY--out by Montauk or on Lake Ontario?

That would be Augustine of Hippo.

Enablers, eh? well, I'll just have to succumb. Can't fight it. When my armoire is full of tobacco I guess I'll stop. that ought to do it, it's 8 feet high and 4 wide.

You'll never stop. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated....

Yes there is:

Step one, buy more tobacco.
Step two, buy more pipes.
Step three, see step one

Simply repeat four times and you're done.Very Happy

Cheers

In the interests of your safe navigation while flying (I'm assuming you're a pilot), it's the Rochester area--or so local wags say. Pretty much a wasteland as far as brick-and-mortar pipe shops go, but in the '70s actually had a chain of them (Briar Route). Think they had four stores here, a couple or three in Syracuse, and maybe one in Binghamton. Anyhow, besides their house blends, Balkan Sobranie was front and center, White, Black, whatever. I liked the White, Black was over the top, but they were all exotic as hell. But then, I was a newbie. Those were the days, but so brief!
