I am late to the party to start adding reviews, but I have enjoyed what I have scene here and the reviews that I have read have helped me make more informed buying decisions over the years. So here's to giving back some.

Finally, I'm starting to enjoy making my own blends. Seemed so easy. Just a few ingredients, right? Well, it's been a fun adventure and I know it has helped me understand the art and enjoyment of pipe smoking.

Enjoy!

Cellaring notes:

Most of it was done by default. I bought more than I needed and more than I could smoke. So it just piled up. Then, an urge comes up to try something again or for the first time and I'm lucky to benefit from over exuberant buying in the past.
