Ode To Nicotine
"A Constrained Hyperbole."
Let others sing the praise of wine;
I'll tolerate no queen
But one fair nymph of spotless line,
The gentle Nicotine.
Her breath's as sweet as any flower's,
No matter where it blows,
And makes this dull old world of ours
The color of the rose.
There's not a pang but she can soothe,
Nor spell but she can break,
And e'en the hardest lot can smooth,
And bid us courage take.
Fair Nicotine! thou dost atone
For many an aching heart;
And I for one will gladly own
The magic of thine art.
Ah, "friendly traitress," "loving foe,"
Forgive this loving lay;
For I, thy worshipper, would show
The sweetness of thy sway.
"Sublime tobacco!" may thy reign
Ne'er for one moment cease;
For thou, Great Plant, art kin to brain,
And synonym for peace.
Pretty much sums it up in my book. Wouldn't you agree?
And now for the important stuff. In case you've been living under a rock, we just launched the U.S return of Capstan Yellow and Blue (in both flake and rubbed versions) and Three Nuns. We still have plenty of Capstan, but we're sold out of Three Nuns for the next couple of weeks. Be sure you're signed up for an in-stock notification alert so we can send you an email when the tobacco is available again. It really shouldn't take too long at all.
And for this afternoon's update? You'll find new work from Adam Davidson, Ichi Kitahara, and Gian Maria Gamboni alongside fresh offerings from Ardor, Ser Jacopo, Mastro de Paja, Savinelli, Brebbia, Neerup, Nording, and Peterson. And what kind of Thursday update would it be without a smattering of professionally restored estate pipes hitting the site? No kind of update we'd be happy about, I can tell you that much. Oh, and we're also introducing the new Brigham Stackers - a great way to store your kit and collection. Cheers!
