Good on ya’. I’m still hanging out with the hound (Granger). Not so much the taste, but when I smoke it, I keep thinking caramel. Must be molasses casing. Might turn out to be my PA. SWR is my bedtime smoke tonightMy son's pipe career has finally evolved to Savinellis. He is getting one of my more modest ones, a bit of a crossover between a lounge sitter and an outdoor pipe. It is a less-common unfiltered model, and will now be one of his rare unfiltered pipes (he's a very happy Grabow man, and I'm very glad he likes them, and especially their filters). Yeah, I'm always a Dad.
I have not replaced my rotation as much has I have in the past three years ... all for a good cause. Lots of new players keep changing my lineup (I'm not even smoking my beloved PA these days!!). I keep my better easy chair pipes in a cabinet rack, and the outdoor/travel ones in a large drawer below my pipe counter. With this Sav departing, my outdoor pipe drawer is now down a batter. And we are about into spring, when my outdoor pipes really start taking center stage.
So ... in a like-for-like deal, I picked up a similarly modest (non white dot) Vauen, perfect for my outdoor smoking jaunts:

In a hat tip to steveclarkus, my son and I are also going to split a pound of Duke Albert, which I found to be a very nice evening dessert blend for cheap. I also snuck in a tin of Bengal Slices ... just because. And of course, the obligatory few bags of pipe cleaners.
And that's my April buy.
The tobacco flavours usually don't really taste of tobacco, but they're close enough. I haven't tried any of these yet though. I normally get blueberry, tobacco nut, or maidens tobacco (supposedly virginia).Way to go! And nice haul. How do you find the tobacco flavor?
I lowered my nic by “rolling my own” juice. Now, due to insurance problems, shops are no longer selling components. Eventually, I’ll just have to kick the nic and quit the vapes altogether.The vaping sub-forum is pretty much dead, but 100x10ml bottles of vape juice arrived here today. I figured it's still loosely relevant here.

All 6mg, which is a big step down from the 11mg I've been vaping over recent years. I figure the pipe and snuff will give a better "lift" if I can lower my vaped nicotine dependence a little.
I think you can still get ingredients to blend your own over here, but that all just seems like too much hassle for me. Once I've got through this lot, I'll try to move to 3mg, and hopefully knock it on the head.I lowered my nic by “rolling my own” juice.

The Holiday may have faded a little, but it and the Briggs are definitely worth smoking. The menthol ... as long as you don’t inhale the stuff. I pass on anything menthol. If you’ve ever seen the pictures of a menthol user ...Think these will be any good? The Greenbrier cans are sealed tight as a drum and swelling.
