Info & Events
from the June & July Club Meeting

pipes were displayed on a blue velvet background. The man was lean
and looked muscular. His blond hair stood out above his ruddy complexion
and was starting to gray at the edges. Round steel-rimmed glasses
sat low on his nose.
The man greeted Clancy in German and asked if he could serve him

Bruno Flake with its smooth, rich, flavor and light floral and fruit
note that enhances, rather than masks, the excellent leaf. A large,
grateful group of pipe enthusiasts are thrilled to see St. Bruno
return to our shores. Welcome back an old friend, or try this classic
for the first time. Either way, you win.
Gold Block(1.75oz tin)
Block from Ogden's of Liverpool was known for being one of the most
widely available pipe tobaccos in the UK. This smooth and relaxing
blend of sweet, bright Virginia and mellow white Burley is treated

flavor, while delivering an enticing room note. For anyone who is
looking for an all-day blend, or for a lightly flavored tobacco
for earlier in the day, Gold Block is certain to please.
