I am..urr...hrrmhrrm years old, & live in Gatlinburg TN in the heart of the Great Smoky Mtns. I fill my professional time with banking and hospitality, and the off time reading, smoking, hiking and hunting. I have been a pipe smoker forever, never a cigarette addict, and have a collection that consists of GBD, Il Ceppo, Castello, Ferndown, Ashton, Ser Jacopo and Rinaldo, most in the bulldog shape. I favor any blend with a large Oriental component, Mahalla being the King of all tobacco varietals.
