Peterson - Early Morning Pipe 50g
Amazing when aged
I was initially not a big fan when I bought a few ounces of bulk Dunhill EMP. It seemed a little too spicy. After two years in the jar, this blend is splendid! Granted my palette is probably getting more used to orientals, but I feel the aged Virginia sweetness really makes it shine.

Cornell & Diehl - Briar Fox 2oz
Finely Aged
I'm basing my review on a tin I found at a B&M in CT. I had seen this tin in store back in 2018 with no date on it. I eventually went backin 2019 and it was still there, so i bought it. I then cellered it for about 2 more years. So, it had at least 4 years on it before i just cracked it. This is a fantastic Virginia. Somone wrone Sweet, Nutty and Satisfying. I would totally agree. I'm just starting to get a hold of my tendencies to smoke too hot that keep me from enjoying straight Virginia and this blend is making me a believer. Get a couple and put at least one in the cellar, you'll thank yourself later.

Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - #12 Mixture
Great smoke
I enjoyed this fresh from the shipment, but it really ages fantastically. I have an ample cellar of blends to work through, but I might need a few more ounces of this delicious blend to cellar to perfection.

Dunhill - My Mixture BB1938 50g
Smooth
This blend is pretty smooth. I find that it sits somewhere between EMP and 965. I think I like it better than either of those as well. I've smoked about half a tin and some bowls are so good and then others are just so so. Maybe it will sweeten up with some age.

Tampers & Tools - 8deco Bamboo Tamper
Cool Tamper
I love this tamper. Mostly used for my around the homestead smoking. I love the holes in the tamper that allow for airflow while tamping. The bamboo is a good length with the end shaped to a pick.

Tampers & Tools - Rubber Pipe Bits (2 pack)
Fantastic
I love these things. I wasn't sure at first, but I mostly get to smoke my pipes when I'm driving home from work. Great for clenching. All of my pipes have them now.
