We started out the evening by giving out the T-shirts and certificates to those who participated in the tobacco blending contest at our last Pipe Talk way back in the last decade. We then introduced a new tobacco we will be carrying called Spark Plug by G. L. Pease. It is a plug tobacco that you have to cut to use. So,… those who chose to got to cut it. (Let it be known that we at The Pipe Rack take our responsibility for safety very serious so of course we had a first aid kit and paramedics at the ready if there was a plug cutting injury.)
We then discussed pipe hygiene and the importance of keeping the stem of your pipe clean and how the oxidation in the stem caused by not keeping it clean can make your tobacco taste different. The tobacco of the evening was Captain Kidd. With its Golden Virginian, Burleys and Toasted Cavendish it made a very nice cap to an enjoyable night. Old friends caught up, some new friends were made, knowledge was shared, and a good time was had by all.
Come in and see all of our hooks at The Pipe Rack!

Since this was the last Pipe Talk of the year, we started out the evening with a “tobacco buffet” featuring a smorgasbord of tobacco samples from many of our 2019 Pipe Talks.
Then we spent some time talking about the FDA regulation updates and if and how they would affect us. We talked about the rare Cornell & Diehl small batch and discussed the Dunhill/Peterson tobacco change over and how the few people who have tried both found the new Peterson to be identical to the old Dunhill version.
The conversation then went to the Ditka Throwback Cigars from Camacho and how we acquired the last 119 boxes that will ever be made! Kudos to us.
We closed out the evening with not one but two great guitar players (Mark and Art) as they played songs and sang for us to finish out the Pipe Talks for the year. A good time was had by all.
We hope you have a great New Year and we will see you at our next Pipe Talk Tuesday, Jan 28, 2020.
