I am a lover of Virginia and Virginia Perique Mixtures. I do reach for an English or Balkan from time to time.

I smoke HOTW, Irish Oak and Sherlock Holmes 90% of the time.

I find myself collecting Design Berlin, Petersons and Meers.I am extremely anal about the condition of my pipes and recently bought a Cob for when i am driving or out and about. It is smoking very well.
