    Thank you again, everybody.
    I don't know what my lovely mailwoman looks like close-up; I always concentrate on the packages she brings me and where to sign for the receipt, so a picture might come in handy.

    Three second-hand BBJ pipes, beautifully refurbished by my pipe friend Carsten Andersen, who very generously added a large helping of Brown Capstan, which I've never tasted before.
    Carsten Andersen didn't want to sell them at the pipe show when BÝrge Blume-Jensen was standing at a table next to him, selling his new pipes. A nice gesture.



    Hello, Dunstan Hillwell!

    Pretty pipes there.

    Capstan brown ? I should get some info on that.

    Congratulations on your new acquisition!!!

    Best regards,
    Arvind.

    Yeah! We all should know how does the Danish Post Woman looks like. After all, the country should know her heroes

    Thank you very much, Arvind. Unfortunately, the brown Capstan is no longer being made. It was the strongest of the three Capstans and I'm glad that I got to taste it. If I ever come across a vintage tin, I can afford, I'll buy it without hesitation.
    The Danish tobacco company 'My Own Blend' makes a replica, but I haven't tasted that one yet.

    Unfortunately, it seems that the postal service has moved her to another route.
    I can honestly say that it is no fault of mine.

    Hello Jesper, Good Morning!

    Those are interesting facts though. I have Capstan Navy Flake (Blue tin) which I like. I may also want to try the brown Capstan. But, as it has been stopped ....
    May be, do you have a picture of the tin, if you have one ? Just wanted to be informed in case I shall come across one .

    Best,
    Arvind.
