My dad has been an SWR devotee for years but I could never warm up to it. PA was an instant like for my taste. H&H seemed more annoying in taste than anything else. No hushing on this one :D
I'm sure your poor dad worried about this a lot when he found out. :pipe2:

You're the first man I've ever seen rebel against his father with pipe tobacco. Bravo.

Got a tub of H+H last week. It's pretty good. Tried it in asst. Pipes, and it does well in every one.

I like burley and I've been revisiting the codger blends. My take:
PA - meh
SWR - still good
Carter Hall (or better yet, Chatham Manor), superb
Half & Half...not to my taste.

I've got 2 coupons, each good for a $1 pouch of H&H that I'll mail to the first person that PM's me their snail-mail address.

[quote="
By the by, I've herd tell of and seen vintage advertisements for an old American blend called George Washington. Seems like yet another extinct codger burley. Is anybody here old enough to remember it?[/quote]


I remember George Washington blend. Similar to U***n Leader; cheap and not bad. Both similar to Kentucky Club Mild which has recently disappeared.

Why is it that both my posts that mention U***n Leader put asterisks instead of the correct letters? I went back to edit the first one and it still does it. Is U***n a dirty word? Are the moderators Confederates? What's up w/ this?

After some thought, I'm guessing your dad and I are about the same age. Sounds like he would be a great guy to have as a neighbor. We could sit on the front porch, smoking and discussing where your life went so wrong.
If that's the case then the PA rebel set and I will have to show up. For a cordial discussion of course...

I can distinctly remember there being two types of Prince Albert regular being sold. Well into the two thousands I could find packs of Prince Albert pipe tobacco as well as packs with an overall more vintage labeling that styled the tobacco as being "crimp cut smoking tobacco". Does anybody else remember this? Why the variation?

I remember that but I have no explanation. Possibly some sort of obscure regulation that doesn't allow "crimp cut" in the description along with other terms like "mild", "ultra-mild", "strong" etc.?

It was part of their "pocket tin" advertising. Discontinued along with Kentucky Club, Walnut, Sugar Barrel (SOB!), etc. I'm old enough to actually remember when Prince Albert was a crimp cut, suitable for pipes or cigarettes.

And there it is. This is good information.

You see? The rest of you could learn something from hugodrax. He gives the right answer or he doesn't bother posting.

I know the answer, but I refuse to post it, thus ensuring that you will show up at the next Hootenanny.

I do so wonder when they stopped packaging tobacco in the classic pocket tins. I do not believe that I ever saw them sold in my lifetime.
