New stuff

I just picked up a couple tins from one of our BOTL here on the forum. Solani Black and White, C&D Sunday Picnic and Dunhill 3 year matured. Haven't tried the Dunhill yet. But I gotta say that Black and White is really good stuff.

Also picked up some HOTW on fleabay and it's pretty good too but probably not a "go to" baccy. Got 2 cans of it so the next person to win the lottery may just get one if they like it.

I'm becoming more and more impressed with Solani.

It was.....well, let's just say it was.

Solani rocks.

Never had any Dunhill.

HOTW is a great VA, very "hay-like".

Very much hay and plums were what I thought on the HOTW. 2 100g tins is a lot of tobacco though!

It's odd, I'm usually very unique in my tastes. I find that I don't normally go crazy for the same stuff that everyone else does. I'm also one that doesn't always agree with "more expensive is better." But I've got to say, The Dunhill blends I've tried have been very solid. 965 was the only one so far that I wasn't immediately impressed with.

Yeah, it comes in bulk, but JR has it for
12 bucks a 100g tin, which is cheaper than bulk.
The shipping (flat rate 8.95) is about the cost of a case of jars.

I also like Old Gowrie and Marlin Flake, but I like HOTW better.

Holy crap; this calls for a new bookmark...

Besides, I only have between four and five pounds; I need to stock up!

Re: New stuff

Yup,
JR Cigars doesn't carry much pipe tobacco, but what they carry, they sell for real cheap. 100g tins of McClelland for $13.50, 100g tins of Rattray for $12.00 per. Also gots the lowest online prices for Escudo and Balkan Sasieni in 50g tins.

If you also smoke cigars, there's some craziness going on where they're selling boxes of cigars at wholesale prices. As a cigar smoker, these are the best prces I've seen for Aruro Fuente, H. Upmann, CAO, Fonseca, etc.

Hmm...never noticed plums before...interesting.

I try not to let the fact that a blend is either popular or unpopular affect how I feel about it, I do like a lot of popular blends though. FVF & Stonehaven for example, I KNOW why those are so sought after.
