    I have the same issue with 1792, Moe - consistancy. Sometimes it's absolutely sublime...others, it's "meh."

    I've been lurking the whole time..... Don't ever feel like you're intruding, feel free to send me a PM anytime, even when I haven't been active in a while.

    But this is interesting. Do you have this problem with all SG tobaccos? I know that the thickness of their flakes can vary wildly, even in the same tin. Also sometimes the bulk tastes a little different than the tin does. I just picked up a few ounces of bulk & it smelled quite a bit different than the tin I have open. Are you smoking it in different pipes? I prefer a wide, somewhat shallow bowl myself. Lastly, how dry are you smoking it? I find that I have a terrible time with it if it's a little too moist.

    Careful there, Clifford. That's my 1792 Flake you're talking about. . .

    My first taste of 1792 was from a tin, the rest was all bulk. So I can't really compare the two. The only inconsistency I've noticed is that sometimes it's harder to keep lit than other times (no big surprise, right?). Flavor wise, it's very consistent. I think with this flake you cannot over-dry it. Well, that might be an overstatement, but I routinely smoke it quite dry, fully rubbed out.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Enjoying a bowl of GH Bright CR Flake. I haven't pulled this one out in awhile, but I'm glad I did tonight. It's a nice sweet Virginia.

    Regarding that McCranies Red Ribbon that I smoked earlier today, anybody know which McClelland Bulk this would be closest to? I'd like to order a bunch and hide it away in a cave for 10 years or so...

    I had a real meal. My beautiful bride made beef stew and cornbread. Bundled up and enjoying some after dinner coffee and FVF in the Savinelli. Man, it's good to be home.

    McClelland 24 (recently purchased from keenween) in the Big Ben tonight.



    Pretty tasty stuff and seems to have a nice room note. Rich and sweet mature Virginia with some Drama for a twist. I'm enjoying it.

    You guys should post more pics. I love seeing everyone's pipes.

    This is probably what my problem was. I get a little impatient sometimes.

    I ran out of tobacco today at work, and forgot to bring my pipe bag with some emergency baggies in it! Nooo!

    I had to do some driving around today for he boss, so I blew through my pre-loaded pipes kinda quickly. Fortunately with my iPhone and Yelp I found a B&M along the way that looked promising for some pipe tobacco. Sure 'nuff, Embassy Cigars in Anaheim Hills had plenty of tobaccy, including quite a few tins of Peterson, Dunhill, MacBaren, W.O Larson, Ashton and more. I didn't even look at the bulk blends they had, which appeared to be name brand as well.

    I grabbed a tin of University Flake, chatted the guy working for a minute about the store and the clientele, and hit the road again. Catastrophe avoided, whew!

    I've got to admit, this University Flake is pretty good stuff. Similar to Irish Flake, but certainly not a carbon copy, a slightly more fruity flavor but it still has a kick. I'll definitely look forward to the next bowl!

    I'm quite glad to find a B&M in the general area that has a decent selection of tins, in case I'm ever out and about and jonesing again.

    For you, Josh.



    I too have a crappy camera on my phone. But this is the Savinelli Venezia billiard/lovat that JJ/User Name (my favorite puffer booted from puff) bombed me with oh those many months ago. It's a really good smoker, rivaling one of my Country Gents.

    With some 1792 Flake just heading home, and thinking about a phone upgrade.
