Stands & Pouches - Economy Folding Pipe Stand
Almost perfect
First of all, a "must have." We all have those places around the house (or where ever else) that we sometimes just need to set a pipe down. Given the cost, there's no reason not-to-have a few of these around. When not being used, they fold flat and out of the way. The only downside is that a pipe can easily come loose and it's a bit difficult to get the pipe to sit perfectly straight. Then again, that's what more expensive holders and racks are all about. This is ideal for someone who needs an extra place to set a pipe (maybe temporarily), or doesn't have that one more available spot on the rack(s). If you are even slightly considering buying one (and you probably are, if you're reading this review), my message to you is this: just buy one. It's less than a buck. You can't go wrong. You'll be happy you did it. And if you don't like it, so what? It didn't cost you much anyway. Give it to a friend.

Carter Hall - Carter Hall 14oz
A very nice traditional American tobacco
Nothing fancy here. This is the type of tobacco pipe smokers bought when they were just looking for a good, honest tobacco. It won't impress anyone who wants to see a fancy label. Just a good, honest smoke.

Paladin - Black Cherry 1.5oz
In your face CHERRY
Yes, this is a cherry tobacco. Nothing subtle about it. If you want something that barely reminds you of cherry, look elsewhere. If you want intense cherry aroma and flavor, the kind of aroma that makes the neighbors a block away wonder why they can smell cherries, this is your new favorite tobacco. I've been smoking this since 1985. Best cherry tobacco on the market, hands down.

Peterson - Connoisseur's Choice 50g
Great tobacco, but has its shortcomings
This blend has a wonderful aroma and taste. It does require some work. Needs to be "fluffed" a bit from the can. It can be difficult to keep lit, but when it's burning, the taste and room note are amazing. More fruity than classic tobacco, for a smoker who is looking for such, I recommend

Lane Limited - 1-Q
Among the best
For a Cavendish, Virginia aromatic, this is just wonderful. It has the classic aromatic tobacco aroma, both in the jar, and the room note. Burns clean. Better than other, similar brands.

Tampers & Tools - Pipe Nail
Best temper
Best pipe tamper made. Edges are rounded, so they don't scrape when tamping. Simple. Gets the job done. Nothing fancy or complicated. Cheap enough to own several and easy enough to replace if lost. Highly recommend.

    How to Date Orlik Tobacco
  • ► That is truly good information for anyone interested in cellaring. I just started doing that myself, so it'll be years before I see any real results.While it's nice to know HOW to date Orlik tobacco tins, what I would like to know is whether or not Orlik is even still producing their tobaccos. It seems the only variety I can find is Golden Sliced, other than whatever old stock a retailer might happen to have around. I cannot get any reliable information on what, if anything at all, they currently make. Is there anyone out there who can post some accurate information on this?
