    After the Peterson aro half bowl, (didn't like it enough to finish) I decided I needed a good virginia smoke. So i broke out my 5 year old HOTW. I picked this up from fleabay. What a find! $26 per tin! You always hear of folks talking about this but until you smoke a bowl you really don't...

    I had my second bowlfull the other evening as I was relocating my stash and for the second time I noticed that while the taste seems "ordinary", the aroma of the smoke is....very different than anything ive smoked. Its even hard to describe. The aroma is quite strong and has somewhat of a salty...

    Hello MarkC, PROGRESS!! Awhile back, I was asking about HotW and you suggested spreading the contents of the tin out on some paper, putting it back, and letting it sit in the tin for awhile. I did exactly that, and fired up a bowl again last night in a pre-trans Barling billiard and the...

    Good Evening, A little over a month ago I opened a 100gr tin of Hal O' The Wynd on another stage of that never-ending quest for the "next" most perfect VA smoke of my life. HOTW is the last of the great "Rattray's VA-Triumvirate" that I have tried. Old Gowrie and Marlin Flake already occupy...

    I would like to preface this with saying at first I was not all that into straight Virginia until I was introduced to FVF. That has been my yard stick and thus far everything has fallen far short, everything until Hal O' The Wynd. It isn't that it's better than FVF it's that it's different in a...

    Has anyone seen this? I searched but didn't found a post. They were sending an email today here at work about this... Dont know if it could be truth, I dont think so, but it could happen since it happened once in Mexico. (we went from having "pesos" to having "new pesos", and they removed 3...

    I want to trade my newly opened (three days ago) 100g tin of Hal O' The Wind. The tin and tobacco are in perfect condition. I've smoked two small cob bowls of it; so little, you'd never know any is missing. Specifically I'm looking for GL Pease Fillmore. I'd like to trade an equal amount if...

    Bill(Madurofan) gifted me with a sampler of about 20 tobaccos. Each sample is enough to provide a few bowlfuls. I thought I would share my thoughts with other newbies to pipes to give them an idea of what to look for. Hal O' the Wind is a blend by Rattray. It is an aged Virginia blend in a...

    Early in my pipe smoking days I tried a couple different Virginias and didn't care for them. Kayak Rat sent me a sample of this in the PIF recently. Not bad at all. I think I'll dedicate a pipe to Virginia. Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up my Latakia or anything... :D
