    Aging Tobacco Part 2

    Aging Tobacco Part 2

    Tomorrow on the next episode of Not Just Blowing Smoke, we continue our look at how aging effects tobacco, this time we light up C&Ds Joie De Vivre from 2014 and 2019. Aging made a huge difference in the LFD Chisel Maduro we smoked last week. But how about pipe tobacco? Cellaring (ie aging) pipe tobacco has been a growing trend over the last few decades. Is it worth it? How do you do it? Steve Poirier from LFD joins us again for this talk on aging tobacco, and Kendra "The Potion Master" from the 7-20-4 Lounge provides us with truly epic pairings for each of these tobaccos. Don't miss it!

    Hidden Gems

    Hidden Gems

    One of the unfortunate realities of having a world class selection of cigars and pipe tobacco like we do at Twins Smoke Shop is that really great things can get overlooked. This week we review two of things that are hidden gems in our selection: the Antaño Dark Corojo Poderoso, and Three Nuns pipe tobacco. We are joined by Nick Laramie from Drew Estate who distributes Antaño. Nick is also a pipe guy and joins us in our review of Three Nuns. Kendra gets back with us as well and has some excellent pairings from the 7-20-4 Lounge for each review.
