Roberto Gandino – I371A

Hailing from Italy
Hello everyone, in thanking the club for admission I will tell you my “piparia” story. At 19, after reading all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels, I decided, thanks to my uncle already a pipe smoker, to emulate Sherlock Holmes! I smoked for four years then stopped at university. I have resumed with joy for a couple of years after a break of almost 30 years. I love English blends but they are no longer the same from the organoleptic point of view of 30 years ago (Dunhill vs Peterson …!) I hope to meet in person one day. Best wishes.
