We are always looking for new ways to engage with the communal side of pipe smoking, and that's just what Compare & Share is all about. For $7.99, you'll receive 2 bags, each containing 1 ounce each of this month's Mystery Blends. Everyone will receive the same two tobaccos. Although they'll be packaged like bulk, these could be any blend we offer, not limited to bulk mixtures. At the end of the month, we'll reveal what the Mystery Blends were before then changing to the next month's Mystery Blends.
Our hope is that while trying these tobaccos, all who are taking part can discuss their thoughts, analyses, impressions, etc. You can join us on our Facebook Compare & Share group!
We think this could be a fun way to bring together two tenets that—for many—are at the core of pipe smoking: exploration and community. If you'd like to know more, check out our blog introducing Compare & Share!

The first one is a nice easy smoker, good anytime of day, kind of reminds me of some Christmas blends I’ve had. The second is super smoky, creosote to hell and back. It might actually be Petersen's early morning. If it’s not it’s the closest thing to it. It’s good if your expecting it but kind of strong for my tastes.
Both are good blends, yet for my taste 1 wins. 1 is much more pleasant in odor before smoking, and was a nice balanced smoke. 2 was not really pleasant to my nose, and while it smokes well has what to me feels like a sharper, peppery bite to it. Must say I can't wait to see what 1 is because I can see buy some more of it.
