I've been hit, still reeling… I think I have a concussion… where's my mailbox?...
CWL blasted me with some of the finest tobaccos made, and they are aged to boot!
I knew I was dealing with the wrong guy. I've seen his TobaccoCellar page - Number One cellared by weight!
I had asked to BUY a few samples, offering what I thought seemed fair pricing, not trying to mooch! I know HTF blends are smokable gold to some. But CWL wouldn't have none of that, insisting that I pay it forward the Puff way.
I had inquired about 4 blends. He sent those and another 4 to boot! All with no less than 6 months aging, some up to 18 months! I've never had any of these before and I'm dying to try them ALL now that they are in front of me. I spent a good 15 minutes just sniffing them and comparing back and forth.
Wow CWL! You sir are a very generous gentleman, and I am very much in your debt! I will indeed pay this wonderful gift forward and return the kindness that you and other have shown me in my short time here. This is a truly special community, and I am honored to be a part of it with you all.
Thank you CWL!
(I just wish you had left a return address so I could add you to my…uh, Christmas card list!)
And as for the damage…
