    Loose Stems

    I really hate it when the pipe stems get loose from use. I've got several now and have recently found that you can use bees wax to tighten up the slack in the stem. You can also use a thin coat of clear nail varnish. I had plenty of bees wax on hand (I melt lead pipe sheaths for ingots to be made into .50 caliber round ball). Tried this and it worked great on the 3 pipes I tried it on. I'll also be getting some nail varnish to try that with if the bees wax doesn't hold up for long.

    Duhill Standard Mixture

    I recently got a few tins of this tobacco in. This is the first Dunhill tobacco that I'm honestly not impressed with. It's a very weak tobacco on flavor profile even though it is marketed as a medium blend and the smoke generated leaves an acrid room odor after smoking. It would probably be fine for an outside early morning smoke, which is what I'll be using it for, but there are better blends out there from them in my opinion.

    John Cotton's Smyrna

    Recently P&C had this tobacco on sale and I picked up a few tins of it. Opened the first tin just the other day and I'm really enjoying it. It's got a unique flavor profile that I can't really describe, but it's a nice English blend.

    Blends of the past

    I'm noticing some of the old standbys are becoming hard to get. I have to wonder if it's 'because of a tobacco supply issue or if the blender has discontinued those blends. What blends of the past do you miss, and if they have been brought back, are the new versions as good as the old?
  7. Well, I've figured I like NightCap and MM 965 so well I'd try a few other blends from them out, especially since Pipes & Cigars had their tins on sale. I've got 3 tins each of Dunhill Standard Mixture Medium, Dunhill The Aperitif, Dunhill Durbar Mixture (which I like and was low on), and Dunhill London Mixture coming in from them... All are English blends, which are my current preference. I'm hoping that I like them as well as I have Dunhill's other blends.
