I received a tin of Black Frigate and Haunted Bookshop today. Tried a bowl of the BF very good. I'm about to pair up some of the haunted bookshop with a cup of java.

Let us know which Chocolate Flake you find better, this GH or the SG Mayors you recently got. Your opinion counts

Since it is unknown when, if ever, we will see Gawith Hoggarth or Sam Gawith tobaccos back in stock anywhere, I got another three 250g boxes of Sam Gawith Mayors Chocolate Flake from TobaccoPipes.com...

Last I heard, Tobaccopipes had 24 250g boxes of this blend in stock. Good price, too, with no sales tax. Heads up to the wise.

Goose, I really wish I had your tobacco budget.

I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

I only buy tobaccos I am absolutely sure I'm nuts about. And also ones I'm suspecting may, for whatever reason, not be here tomorrow.

Tobacco Pipes, though, does have a very good price on these 250g boxes of DG Mayors Choco Flake. And no sales tax and free shipping over $95.

Since all the GH Brown Flake I had was smoked up, I needed something similar for my morning smoke, with coffee. Hopefully, these boxes of SG will hold me through till GH Brown Flake is back!

This looks good, but I still have several jars of Stonehaven stashed away, so no need to investigate a new chocolate flake as of now.

I have had much of my cellar for around a decade now, feel like I’ve barely made a dent. I honestly just don’t think I smoke as much as Goose, I think his cellar is a bit more justified because he burns through large amounts of tobacco quickly, I smoke smaller pipes less frequently and therefore do not require stockpiling in that scale.

I think you are correct in this assessment. I smoke large pipes and anywhere from 4 - 5 bowls daily. I have a deep cellar and even more, realizing the day all the McClelland will be gone.

That said, I did take advantage of a sale on C&D bulks to try out a few of their blends

Two tins of Burley Flake #2, arrived last week, and I've already placed one of the tins in the mail to a fellow CPSer, who hopefully will enjoy either smoking it or blending with it, or both.

Nice, those C&D Burley Flakes are pretty strong if I remember correctly, good stuff!

That makes me wish I had the space in a humidor for 20 cigars. I could totally go for that bundle. Alas, my cigars are housed in a 5-stick hardshell travel humidor.

With still no signs of any other bulk Sam Gawith or Gawith Hoggarth tobaccos anywhere, while Tobacco Pipes still had some boxes of this, I got three more today. Like it a lot but I'm starting to smell like a Hershey's bar. I asked them how many boxes they had left a couple few weeks ago and they said 24 but I doubt they have many more left.

Picked up some Two Friends Redwood and some H&H Black House using that “friendship” code that Russ put out.
