    Danish pipe shops 'brown plug'.

    Whilst perusing their site, noticed they've brought out a 'own blend' brown plug.
    I've not tried it & they themselves say it's more of a crumble cake than a plug. Looks interesting though.

    Sounds like something I would like to try but its just too damned expensive to order from them here in a he states. It cost me $65 for two tins of Brown Sugar Flake when it was first released. That sucks because they have a lot of stuff Id be interested in trying otherwise. Let me know if you try the Brown Plug.

    "My Own Blend" makes excellent tobaccos. They've been at it since 1939, so they should. King Frederik the IX had his tobaccos blended at their old, now defunct, shop and two of his blends are available to all of us non-royals thanks to a permission from The Royal Court.
    They blend remakes of tobaccos gone, for instance 'Three Nuns' and an old favourite of mine, 'The Garrick'.

    David Garrick, who that blend is named after was born in Hereford. My home town, not a lot of people know that.

    Wasn't the tobacco named after the London theatre which was named after the actor..?
    I didn't know that he was born in Hereford though.

    The Actor, the Theatre, the London Club, the Tobacco, and....the Pipe!

    I'm in awe Dave, honestly I am! The pipes & knowledge you possess is truly awe inspiring, BUT! Come on, tell the truth now, I bet you never knew he was from Hereford....did you?

    I did the research out of curiosity after I bought the pipe I certainly thought the Club was pretty cool!

    Reading through the names of deceased members, quite remarkable. Would of been a fascinating place to be, back in the day.

    I plum forgot about the club. Thanks for reminding me and for the links, Dave.
    I spent some time browsing and reading the articles on their homepage; what an interesting and great-looking place.
    The library looks like mine, only larger.
