Stands & Pouches - Smokingpipes Leather 2 Pipe Case with Pouch Tan
Fits two medium bent pipes
I was a bit nervous ordering this because of the "Not adequate" review and I smoke almost exclusively bent pipes. Upon arrival I immediately tested it by filling it with two of my most bent stemmed pipes and the usual accoutrements: czech tool, lighter, pipe cleaners, etc. Everything fit fine. I did not put any tobacco in it as I didn't want to go through the hassle and get ribbon everywhere but it seemed that there was plenty of room for anything I would need traveling. I can't imagine needing to put a full ounce of ribbon in here and being able to smoke it before it dried out, but I could certainly get whatever I would need for a short term trip. Perhaps the other reviewer has bigger pipes than mine, but I wasn't putting nosewarmers in there, they were medium sized. I wouldn't want to fit two house pipes in there, or an Oom Paul, but average-sized pipes should work fine. The leather finish had more of a mottled, oil-cloth, rustic look to it than what I see in the picture but I actually like it better that way. I'm very satisfied so far and excited to use this on future trips. A great value. Only taking off half a star because I felt the materials on the interior part where the pipes go seemed a bit cheap compared to the rest of the pouch. Also a slight rubbery smell from the tobacco pouch section, which is I'm sure from the liner...Hopefully it doesn't get into any tobacco I put in there. It's not strong but it's there, at least so far.
Newminster - No.400 Superior Navy Flake
The Poor Man's Capstan
Smells straight up exactly like raisin bran before smoking. Once you get going it is not in-your-face but there is a sweetness with a good subtle graham cracker flavor that reminds me a lot of Capstan Blue. And that's fresh, not even aged yet. In fact after smoking one bowl of this I decided at this price I really have no need of paying 17 bucks for a tin of Capstan ever again.
Peter Stokkebye - PS403 Luxury Bullseye Flake
My most heavily cellared tobacco
Try a bit fresh if you like but don’t judge it until it has been in a Mason jar for a year. This isn’t better than escudo but with the age is satisfies that craving pretty well and for the price I will buy more of this over escudo most of the time. Be patient with the aging and you will be well rewarded for it
Sutliff - 515 RC-1
New favorite bulk
Just a few months in a jar does wonders. I have much fancier tinned tobaccos but I keep craving this instead. Wish it burned slower so it lasted longer. Vinegar taste comes in strong in the beginning but it burns away after a while to just sweet tangy red va . Something this cheap has no business being this good
