It’s been a hectic time here at Smokingpipes over the past several weeks. Along the usual preparations and traveling involved in the run-up to the Vegas show, there have also been numerous special projects, regarding which most of us here have a hand in more than one at a time. Two things that have helped greatly keep us sane have been steady supplies of both quality tobaccos, and good, strong coffee. As it so happens, this Monday’s update brings us two new smoking blends, one each from Brebbia, and the renowned GL Pease. And of course, we’re fortunate enough to have plenty of our own branded blends of coffee at hand as well – the “Brazil Moreninha Formosa” and “Kenya AA”. Believe me, they are indispensable. If you’ve ever wondered what it is that allows us to keep up with the torrential workflow necessary to produce our big, bi-weekly updates of pipes, cigars, tobaccos, and accessories, you can get a taste of it yourself easily enough, just by checking under our “Gifts” section, where both blends are offered to all and sundry.
But for now, let’s get down to the main course. Today we bring you fine pieces by Rad Davis, Luigi Radice and sons, Castello, and Rinaldo, plus great selections from Tsuge, Peterson, and Vauen, and an outright huge pile of fresh Savinellis. Joining them are estate briars from the Irish and Danish, two new tinned tobaccos, and finally the introduction of the excellent, much-awaited “Mi Amor Reserva” by La Aroma de Cuba.
