From my husband’s blog on tobacco reviews. There really is a very geeky culture of pipe and cigar smoking! Thought this one might be especially interesting.

After numerous delays, and setbacks the packages finally arrived today and I set out to do this review using my brand new pipe, with the gifted tobacco.
As a side note, I had no idea that either the tobacco or the pipe we’re being sent to me for my birthday, so this was doubly a surprise and doubly a delight.
