Pipe smoker for 50+ years.

Mostly into English blends these days. Prefer lighter styles such as Squadron Leader and Rattray's Seven Reserve. Finding the value of aging for these and the occasional Virginia that I try for a change of pace. Still fond of the occasional Burley which were my standards for many years.
