    First meer…

    The mortise insert is likely threaded into the meer, but it may be (1) really hard to remove because of age and gunk, or (2) glued in. You can try inserting a tapered screwdriver into the mortise so it makes contact with the insert but doesn't connect with the meer below or on the top part of...

    Absolutely Painful

    I've had a couple of tins like that over the years and I've been able to rehydrate them back to something quite pleasant and smokable. Not the 100% optimal experience I was hoping for, but definitely still a well aged tobacco that I enjoyed.

    First meer…

    Restoring a meer is a bit trickier than restoring a briar. Go easy and slow is even more important with a meer. What are you wanting to do to the meer to restore it?

    Dominican Republic

    I suppose the big question is whether they’re sending Kentucky burley down to the DR or whether they’re using DR tobacco. Anyone know for sure? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cellaring English Blends

    The oldest last blend I’ve enjoyed was about 40 years old, and the lat was not very present at all. But I’ve had blends that were 20-25 years old where the lat was still very present. I wouldn’t stress about the lat getting a bit muted over time—if you’ve cellared a blend long enough for the lat...

    B&B LE Group buy Badger and Blade 2021 LE Pipe : Alden Pipes

    Great work gents! If you don’t get your order in by tomorrow, you’ll be left to fight it out with Jim over the Artist Proof pipe in the St Sue Moore auction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Air travel
