They're the masters of blowin' smoke out of both sides of their mouths, alright.

As well as another orifice.

You got a problem with that?

So there is a "distiller's Proof" available at least.
Litany against fear of Absinthe - I must not fear Absinthe. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my Absinthe. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the Absinthe has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Yeah, I can picture him getting frustrated and just hucking the whole idea.

But I can still make a buck! Here, YOU do it. Introducing Ned's "Wacky Tobacky Brew" home distillation kit, consisting of:

1 liter expectorated tobacco juice
1 baggie of herbs
1 brick of dried peat moss, and a bunsen burner

Just add your own base alcohol, and away you go!

About that "smoke free cigarette" there was a movie made about it called, "Barbarians at the Gate." It was mildly interesting because the tobacco company put a lot of stock into the "smokeless" venture and as we all know it didn't pass the spaghetti test. I think it was a made for TV movie but I can't say for sure.

When I was younger I smoked cigarettes, mostly because I thought it helped me fit in with the group of friends I associated with at the time. I could never stand the smell of a cigar and so went my relatively quick foray into the world of tobacco or perhaps tobacco's relatively quick foray into me. =)

I think HBO produced that one. Based on a true story (that was the funny part).

Johnson almost pulled it off (buying RJR)!

The smokeless cig references were funny.

Sad but true. From the Reynolds American Inc. Corporate Factbook:

" On Jan. 16, 2002, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Holdings, Inc. acquired Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Inc. for $340 million in cash. Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Inc. manufactures Natural American Spirit cigarettes and other tobacco products, and markets them both nationally and internationally."

Hopefully they will not tamper with the company or try and manipulate their product goals.

From American Spirit website

In January 2002, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company was acquired by the company which is now Reynolds American Inc. We continue to operate out of Santa Fe, New Mexico as an independent and autonomous subsidiary. We have the same dedication, the same employees, the same mission and the same high quality tobacco products. Although some things may have changed over the years, in many important ways we haven’t changed at all. We still add nothing but care to the select tobacco leaves that make the grade and wear our wrapper.

Very nice pipes Hiram.

I used to smoke pipes, prior to developing an allergy to tobacco. I really miss it, but it's not really one of those easily ignored allergies. Real shame. I partly miss the smoking itself, and partly the amusement of watching the bewildered people seeing a woman smoking a pipe. I even got a few comments along the lines of "wait, can women even do that? women can smoke pipes?". Ah well. Fond memories.

the tobaccos in question were Latakia and Perique.  What you're after is an "Oriental" or English blend.  They tend toward the smoky, savory side rather than the sweet aromatic side, like Cavendish based blends. 

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Ok, so I got an English Oriental blend at my local shop after being assured it was made with Lataki (which it is) but it smells so strong I am having trouble keeping it in the apartment. no matter how many ziplock bags I put it in (up to three now) the smell comes straight through. I don't mind it but Pensieve hates it and I need to get it under control.

Hiram, what do you keep yours in? Any tips?

Bump

Because the weather has turned and the pipes have come out. I just found a great Danish blend called Black and Tan at my local shop.
