Welcome to Episode 088, our first Pipe Smoking episode! This is Volume One of what will be an occasional feature here on Half Ashed. We spent the first hour going through the process of how you go about readying a flake tobacco for smoking (either rubbed out or folded/stuffed). Admittedly, last night’s show is much better absorbed if you watch the video – but I hope you find some value in the audio as well. We should have another pipe smoking related topic and show lined up in about three months or so. While we realize we are a cigar podcast, we’re total tobacco geeks at heart and
since pipe smoking is a big part of my life (Kip), we’d like to include some info here as well.
Once we got through the longer-than-imagined pipe smoking content, we did manage to hit a couple of news items. First and foremost the sale of Drew Estate from the past week. We also hit the high spots for some important legislative potentialities and some upcoming Cigar Tourism trips. We didn’t get to a couple of listener emails as we normally would; we will be sure to get them in next week’s show.
In the next episode we will be featuring the Cohiba Reserva Media Corona, so be sure to check back in Friday night at 9:30pm EST on halfashed.com where you can catch us recording and participate in the chatroom. If you would like to contact us in the meantime, you can reach us through the contact page or at the following emails: [email protected] or [email protected]. Please feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions you’d like answered, comments to make…or even compliments and complaints. We love to get your emails! Also, remember you can always go back and listen to previous episodes, which can be found in the Half Ashed Archive.

Video, as always, will be available at the Half Ashed YouTube Channel.
P.S. – If you have unbanded suggestions or contributions, you can get those to us by sending an email to [email protected]. This email address goes directly to my wife, so you can simply suggest an unbanded cigar for her to source, or send me an email to [email protected] if you have something you’d like to send in. I will provide an address to send them. Thanks!
