It's good to finally step out a bit- I have joined a while back but never posted yet. I am probably what one would lable a novice pipe guy-I have 23 pipes in all and have the bug that bits a lot of us I guess, always one around the bend
I would like to have!
I have pleasure of being I same city of a master pipe tobacco blender Steven Books in Oregon City, Oregon, and can enjoy some fantastic blends relatively easily. I enjoy quite a variety of blends- he makes a killer cigar blend I love and go to frequently. I am awaiting his release of a Virginia- perique blend of 7 Virginias and perique- absolutely killer of a rich complex flavor that at the middle of the bowl and you have come back to it after 5 mins the taste just explodes. Love that pipe!
