A FIT SUBJECT FOR DARK NIGHTS

For the benefit of pipe smokers, and only pipe smokers, seeing as no one else is likely to find any of this fascinating, here are links to essays containing short reviews of some pipe tobaccos. So mostly men.
Though some are, regrettably, hobbits.
Well, maybe there might be some women who are interested (Mary in the Carolinas, for instance), or even impressionable young ladies looking for something to enjoy of an afternoon with their tea.

Men. And hobbits.

FLAKES: A BRIEF PERSONAL INTRODUCTION


As a personal eccentricity, I am somewhat obsessed with the idea of a young woman deciding that she should smoke a pipe, and do it well.
So avoiding aromatics and Latakia overloads, eschewing too much Perique, and determined to not abuse or hotbox (overheat) her briars.











If I were a young woman, that's what I would do.

Nice pipes are very feminine.

I am always delighted when you do a reprise of your greatest hits, be it pipe tobacco, cookery or anything else. May I suggest a compendium of things Dutch?
