Lighters - Peterson Pipe Lighter Black
This has become my everyday lighter when smoking in my workshop. So easy to use and completely reliable so far. Don’t usually spend this much on a lighter but I have absolutely zero regrets. This thing is great.
Sutliff - Ready Rubbed Match
Great Burley Blend
Perfect companion to morning coffee. Lights easily and stays lit without any fuss. Burns cool. Always have some of this on hand. More added flavors than the simpler codger blends. Makes a nice change from CH or D&R Two Timer, and similar burley-based offerings.
Sir Walter Raleigh - Aromatic 1.5oz
Better than expected
I’m not much for aromatics by I actually prefer this to the standard SWR. It shares all the good qualities of its brother but delivers more flavor, at least for me. A very relaxing smoke.
Filters & Adaptors - Vauen Filters (100 pack)
These are the best 9mm filters I’ve tried. They let plenty of the flavors through while cutting down on the moisture and the bite. I like use them with some of the MacBaren blends that taste so good but need a little mellowing. These let me smoke quite a few blends that I find a little bitey when smoked in a standard pipe.
Tabac De La Semois - Le Petit Robin 100g
This one I like when I want a slow smoke. Packing tight and sipping slowly will yield some surprising flavors. I like it in a smaller bowl. Great choice for a churchwarden. Just remember that shag cut gets hot in a hurry if you puff too fast. A nice tobacco when you’re in the mood for something different.
Missouri Meerschaum - Mark Twain Straight (6mm)
My first cob
Love this pipe. Smoked great from the get-go. Had a bit of a problem with a cracked shank. Couldn’t puff fast enough to get any taste lol! A little tightly-wrapped electrical tape fixed that in two minutes. Now I’m happily puffing away on it trying to decide which model of MM I want to buy next!
Daughters & Ryan - Two Timer 16oz
Easy does it
A very nice simple burley at a great price. Good, real tobacco taste. I pack it tightly and sip slowly to get the most flavor. Works great for blending too.
Sutliff - Match Victorian
My go-to Vaper
The one I reach for most. I’ve tried many high-priced tinned vapers from the big name makers but this is the one that does it for me. Low priced and highly underrated. A blend I order by the pound more frequently than any other.
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
Been smoking this for years and at the 5-year mark it is wonderful. Just added another pound to my stash. I like it fresh too, but with age it really comes into its own.
