I don't have this one any more, but it was a pretty pipe from St. Patrick's Day 2003.

Image

This was one of my best/most often smoked Petes.

Image

Not a fan of the P-Lip.

Image

Turns out I don't really need a pipe to sit on its own.

Image

Didn't take to this one either.

I like the looks of that one a lot--guess it wasn't a smoker.

Couldn't help but notice the tin of Grousemoor. I love the tin art, but have never tried it because of the very mixed reviews it seems to get. I guess I should just buy a tin and see what I think. But what do you think of it?

Was? Are you posting about Peterson pipes that YOU DON'T HAVE in my thread about Pete's that people have?

Well, I'm pretty sure that people have these pipes. And I don't have any of the Petes other folks have posted about so these are no different.

I like Grousemoor. I can see why it's not liked by some. It's taste is fairly unique - at least Amon blends I've tried. Some call it soapy - I don't think that's totally unfair... But that's probably what turns some folks away. It's worth trying to see if it would be a good addition to one's cellar.

Ah huh. And you guys wonder why atheists are here. It's because CPS.
No more pictures or mentions of Pete's you don't own.... whether you owned them in the past or will own them in the future.

The tin of Grousemoor is probably empty now too.

How many of you think that J-B exists?

Thanks for the info. John-Boy.
I'll add a tin to my next order and give it a try.

Heck, shoot a couple of duskys for me too!

Shoot... Pretty sure that's long gone. But probably to someone here. Maybe somoene will fess up and you can get it from them.

I've always loved the Donegal Rocky finish. I can't find pictures of a few of the Petes I had before that batch... sigh. Rusty doesn't want to see them anyway. :cry:

True. I don't even have any Grousemoor waiting to be smoked - though I don't keep a cellar any more. I do have a tin (can't confirm it's that one or not) that I keep plastic thingys for clamping paracord together.

The tin's not empty. It's got little plastic things for holding paracord together inside.
