Re: What was your last tobacco purchase?

I picked up 2 oz bulk of C&D Haunted Bookshop at a cigar shop in Oceanside, CA, while visiting the in laws. I smoked a sample of this blend that was gifted to me when I first started pipe smoking last April, and didn't care much for it at the time. I figured I'd give it another chance, as I've really been enjoying some burley blends lately. I'm wondering if maybe my lack of enthusiasm for it last spring could be attributed to an underdeveloped palate.

Thanks to AK's eagle eye for deals, I just bought a 20 stick box of the coveted Oliva Master Blends 3 Torpedo (my fav shape) from Holt's for only $89. And w/ free shipping and no sales tax. Here's a link to the deal, should anyone want some...

Pic of the box of Churchills, also on the same sale, but for whatever reason, no free shipping on the Churchhills....

Hurrah! Gawith Hoggarth & Co blends are back in stock in the USA! My favorite morning smoke with coffee has returned. Its been so long I kind of forget how good it is.

I ordered five 500 g boxes (5- 1/2 pounds) of Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Flake Unscented, from 4Noggins. They just got a shipment from their supplier. Maybe other GH & SG blends as well. :chili: :pipe: Price has gone up 11%. $312.00. Oh, well.

THey indeed do still view us as colonies. GH had, all this time, remained fully stocked in all the UK shops I looked at. But you can't blame them for looking after their own.

The last 5 tins of Peterson Hyde Park from Eddie Gray at the Pipe Nook. He's selling off what's left of his Peterson tins for $8 each.

It is said that STG will begin shipping Peterson blends in late 2019 - as this blend was made by Gawith Hoggarth, and it isn't exactly one of the more highly-sought blends under the Peterson brand, in my mind there's no guarantee that Hyde Park isn't very stealthily going away.

10% off IPSD sale + free shipping at Smokingpipes has resulted in my ordering of a 1lb box of Old Dark Fired. I threw in an 8oz can of C&D Opening Night on the testimony of JMG.

With great difficulty I was able to show restraint and stave off the urge to buy a particular Neerup pipe that they are selling which has been calling to me. I feel like my money would be better spent working on my cellar right now. Must. Not. Look. At. Pipes.... :|
