The Pipe Club of London was
formed in 1970 in association
with the late Pipe Club of Great
Britain with a view to encourage
the appreciation of quality pipes
and fine tobaccos, and, to
promote the interests of
members by offering them social
entertainment and educational
facilities connected with pipes
The Club is truly international in
scope, having approximately 300
members in 26 countries and
visitors to this website from 145
nations around the world.
Meetings are held at various
venues in and around the greater
London metropolitan area. Please
click on the Club Calendar tab for
specific venues, dates and times.
All pipe smokers whether novice
or expert, men or ladies are
welcome to attend. Activities
include tobacco tasting, talks
on pipes and tobaccos, pipe-
smoking competitions, visits
to pipe factories--and the
camaraderie of like-minded

HAVING SERVED our distinguished
club since the fall of 2008, Johnny,
otherwise known as The Rev. Doctor
John Wade Long, Jr., our ever (ahem)
humble and inimitable Webmaster,
has let it be known that he is ready
to retire his duties and turn over the
coveted Cyber Sceptre to a real
(read: someone who is actually paid)
Johnny reports that he has been
honored to be our club's online face
for lo these seven years, but looks
forward to the day he can log onto
the website and search for errors
that have been produced by
someone other than himself.
He will continue the joys of antique
pipe collecting and smoking from his
and Becky's mountain home in
Western North Carolina USA to which
he says you are all invited (given
ample advanced warning so that
they may skip town well in advance).
He will treasure forever the custom
Northern Briars pipe presented to
him by the club at the last meeting
he attended in the UK (July 2011)
when, with real tears, he blessed
us with this Aaronic Blessing:
"May the Lord bless you and keep
you. May the Lord make His face
to shine upon you and be gracious
unto you. May the Lord lift up the
light of His countenance upon you
and give you His love, joy and
peace, through Jesus Christ our
May He bless you all indeed, Johnny

join a very select band of pipe
smokers from around the world in
tasting and providing feedback on
a stable of reborn vintage British
pipe tobacco brands.
The Standard Tobacco Company
of Pennsylvania was formed by an
Englishman and two Americans to
recreate a number of classic
tobaccos for the enjoyment of a
After incredibly detailed testing
and blending by Master Blender
Russ Ouellette, samples have
arrived in London for review and
comment by PCOL members ahead
of general release in Autumn 2015.
The old/new brands in question are:
• BENGAL SLICES
- A unique Latakia-based crumble
cake made with yellow and black
Virginias, some of the most delec-
table Orientals available and a
touch of unflavoured black
- Last sold in the UK in the early
1980s, Warhorse is a robust “every-
man’s” pipe tobacco, consisting of
earthy, hearty Burley, ripe red
Virginias, a good share of smoky,
spicy dark-fired Kentucky and a
touch of Perique for a hint of sweet-
ness. It has a very light top-note
that helps to smooth out the flavour
• JOHN COTTON'S NO. 1 MILD
- An Orientals-forward blend allied
with a comination of bright and red
Virginias and Latakia added as a
• JOHN COTTON'S NO. 1 & 2
- A classic English-style blend.
Cyprian Latakia is the main player,
but not overwhelming to the
Orientals and sweet, tangy Virginias
• JOHN COTTON'S SMYRNA
- The richest of the Latakia-based
blends, this contains smoky Cyprian
Latakia, earthy, aromatic Turkish
Orientals and fully-matured Virginias
