    Good advice for any McClelland in my book; I still have four more months until my first bowl of five year old Dark Star...

    I've only been smoking a pipe for four years, and my 'favorite' list is still fluid. But, at this moment; here's the top three:

    1. Astley's No. 55 (though this is my latest obsession; it could be entirely off the list in a year.)
    2. Union Square
    3. McClellands Matured Virgina No. 27 (this one could fall as well; I've only smoked two tins as I'm trying to ration my five year plus tins and only have two left. But so far, it has been breathtaking.)

    A more conservative list would be:

    1. Union Square
    2. Opening Night
    3. Hal o' the Wynd

    My current faves:

    1. Squadron Leader
    2. Ruins of Isengard
    3. EMP

    This list constantly changes but Ruins has never left the top three since I first sampled it. It only gets smoked in my Gandalf pipe and my Gandalf pipe only gets Ruins smoked in it. I am quickly running out so I don't smoke it much. CanNOT wait until the 16th!

    Louisiana Flake
    Germain's Rich Dark Flake (That's Stonehaven to you guys...)
    Robert Lewis Tree Mixture.

    If no other tobaccos were made, I'd be happy. All of them could go to the dickens if Edgeworth Sliced were still available.

    Dunhill Early Morning Pipe. (This question has come up a lot recently. Probably quicker for all - and my poor memory - to spell the names out in full.)
