My husband loved his clay pipe with Squadron Leader. The Calabash usually held some obscure latakia filled tabacco that got him sent outside. His favorite pipe was one I gave him when we lived in Europe, it lasted almost twenty years with some minor repairs, after being dropped off the top of an Abrams tank.

Howdy do KG!
Your pipe brings back memories of my dad.
He didn't smoke any unique pipes, but just the sight of one in his hand made for a nice portrait. He didn't smoke a pipe for long, but I found it to be actually a pleasant smell in the house.
He just used Carter Hall tobacco back in the day, but the smell of it reminds me of those days. lol

Sounds like a long trip. I got my truck and my knitting back late Friday and am now sitting in Bangor, Maine happily knitting and smoking a pipe.

Nice. I've been scouring the tobacco shops in search of some Squadron Leader. No luck so far, but I'll find some eventually. A good English blend to be sure.

I've always enjoyed the smell too. Carter Hall is one of the better over the counter pipe tobaccos and I always have some in supply.
