December Meeting Review

Greetings from The Houston Pipe Club!

After many many months of hard work, the first of hopefully many Houston Pipe club blends is available on Pipes and Cigars. Please consider adding a few oz to your shopping cart the next time you make a purchase. It would mean the world to me if you would submit some reviews and feedback so we could continue to improve any future blends. The intention of this blend was to create something that would be appealing to the new pipe smoker, as well as the seasoned vet. The Houston Pipe Club is growing fast and the only way to continue to do so is to be warm and inviting to newcomers and anyone interested in this great passion we all share.

Check out the blend on the PipesandCigars page here

The Heights is a blend from our friends at the Houston Pipe Club. It’s an intriguing mixture of two types of red Virginia, fragrant Turkish, dark-fired Kentucky, unflavored black Cavendish and a good splash of Cyprian Latakia. The blend is smoky sweet and a bit earthy, producing volumes of thick smoke. See for yourself what they’re smoking in the great state of Texas.

Recap of the December Meeting

What a great time we all had at the December meeting. Brian Levine from Sutliff attended and brought some samples of MacBaren tobacco. He possesses a wealth of tobacco knowledge both as a smoker and from the industry side. There was a pipe sale going on and the vendor brought out what I estimate to be at least 150 beautiful pipes. Our Gracious host as usual provided us with a comfortable and pleasant  venue. Thanks Jorge for doing what you do for us and for the food. We are all eternally grateful to you and all the members of Stogies world class cigars staff.

Member Yogi announced a new line of tobacco pipes he will be developing in the near future. The bowl will be made of your choice of Balsa wood, Hardy plank, or even Formica counter top. Asbestos lined bowls are also available upon request. Each pipe purchased will come with a nice pouch designed from luxurious hotel curtains he stole from the Vegas show. Inquire at the next meeting to be put on his list J

Once again, we had a great time and if you have yet to be able to attend one of our meetings please consider joining us for our January gathering.  Meetings are held the first Friday of each month unless otherwise stated in email.
