Pipe Talk Recap

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.

Pipe Talk Recap

The evening started with Max Stokkebye discussing tobaccos. He talked about the different types; including the differences between burleys and virginians as well as latakia and perique. He continued with how they are cured and processed as well as how they are blended. Afterward we had a tobacco blending contest! And the winner is…Rick Storts (he wins everything!)

We also had renowned pipe maker and restorer Tim West on hand. He discussed his process of creating and making his pipes and we were treated to a wide selection of his pipe collection for viewing and purchase.

We had the trifecta this evening because Tim Knoll the President of the North American Society of Pipe Collectors “NASPC” was here as well! He talked about the benefits of membership as well as the new location of next year’s Pipe Show in Columbus, OH
As always, old friends caught up, some new friends were made, knowledge was shared, and a good time was had by all.
