Arango - Balkan Supreme
Excellent English
If you like English with notable Latakia, you should try this blend. I'm not one of those guys who can pick out nuanced flavors but I know when a blend is well balanced and I know when I like something. I love this stuff. It's listed as a ribbon cut but the ribbons are short, what I would consider almost a rough cut, so it is very easy to pack by gravity feed. The burn is consistent and requires minimal relights.

Cleaners & Cleaning Supplies - 8deco Premium Shank Brush
Works as Expected
A pipe can't be too clean. I normally run a pipe cleaner through a pipe after smoking. After 10 bowls, give or take, I clean the stummel with alcohol soaked pipe cleaners until they come out fairly clean. After letting the alcohol set for a few minutes, to soften everything up, I use this brush, with alcohol on it, and scrub the stummel's airway with this brush and all sorts of black gunk gets loosened up. I then use pipe cleaners to remove the loosened gunk followed by a dry, fluffy pipe cleaner to soak up excess alcohol. The brush is sturdy and durable. It even has a rubber bead on the end to help guide the brush through the airway and prevent possible famage by covereing the wire end of the brush. I recommend this product to anyone who is serious about protecting and maintaining their valuable briar pipes and enjoying a fresh tasting smoke.
