    I was in a B+M tobacco store a couple of days ago and saw that the price for 50g of most pipe tobacco runs for about 250 SEK (about 25/$40) whereas online you're talking about 7 from the US based retailers? It's cheaper for me to order stuff online and pay for the postage than it is to buy locally.

    Slightly back on track, I didn't realise quite how ghost-y Grousemoor was, looks like I'm going to have to smoke a few Grousemoor infused bowls to get rid of it then!
    Yeah should have included a note with that one. It's cheaper for me to order from us too but I can get two things here at least that I cannot in the us. Fvf is always in stock here and capstan original navy cut. Yum

    Must try some Grousemoor. But this is not the worst of the ghosters. By all accounts, that's Ennerdale Flake. I gave a colleague a sample (he only loaded a part bowl and I did warn him) and he was still tasting it more than a week later. He's a heavy smoker of Mac Baren aromatics too. I only recently started to smoke Ennerdale; I have a pipe dedicated to it which was an estate meerschaum which had an "aroma" to it that I could not shift regardless of what I did. Smoked it heavily, alcohol and salt cleaned it, baked the bowl overnight in a low oven. Nothing - still as strong as ever. First smoke of Ennerdale convinced me that this one had previously been used for Ennerdale (by the looks of the pipe, YEARS earlier). This stuff is permanent.

    Been a bit of a slow day. Just finished some GH Curly Cut in the "Tunisia Campaign" pipe. Still got a the stench and bitterness from the French tobacco it was obviously used with previously. I was hoping it would smoke out, but it's off to the showers for salt and vodka.

    Loaded my tiny rope pipe with Revor Plug (to get Vitamin N levels up quickly to an acceptable minimum) and also the ancient Barling with Louisiana Flake. A couple of hours with a book in the shed looms.

    Too new to have a list of blends I've tried. Just a couple from a local shop (a little dry and I can't find my hydrators anywhere), and H&H Black house. Just made a nice purchase of some cobs, a couple hardwoods, and a new briar. Plus got some anni kake, burley kake, and some Midnight ride. Tonight, I plan on trying a little McClelland Pebblecut.

    With only one briar so far, I haven't been able to let it rest like I should, but won't have to worry about that, now.

    My wife killed us with a big dinner. Sharing some stories and catching up with the son-in-law, as we enjoy some warm Kracken rum. I'm smoking some 1792 in the Alpha Cremlin and the son-in-law is enjoying his first bowl of LNF in a DG Omega, that I bought for him at Walgreens. I still want an Omega and they only had the one, so I cheerfully purchased it for him. It is Christmas after all.

    The Omega is a nice pipe for what it is...very small, and with that stupid p-lip. They were larger at some point in the past, though, as I have seen an estate that was larger than mine. There are reports on the DG forum of guys whacking off the p-lip with a Dremel and then sanding it smooth, making it into a regular bit. It's on my LONG list of projects that Ill get to SOMEDAY.

    So as a follow up, the Pebblecut has much more nic than other blends I've tried, so gave me a pretty good buzz. Can definitely taste the spiciness of the perique. It's good, but not something I'll probably get again. Think I'll set aside a little, than age the rest for a while.
