    HI Brian,

    Columbus Ohio, We will be leaving tomorrow. Plan to say Hi….
    Your comparison between bulks and tins pretty much match my experience. However, if you primarily smoke one tobacco most of the time, the bulks become more economic. As you said, you can tin (jar) them yourself.

    The Beth Stern interview was interesting. The revival of smoking jackets is something new. I don’t know if I will ever need one but it is a neat accessory. It is a bit formal for me.

    Sammy Davis - do one with the Chairman of the Board of the Rat Pack.

    Rant - just not enough hours in a day.

    Hope to have a pipe with you this weekend. CU in Columbus. Keep up the good work.

    So if the tinning changes the flavor as dramatically, how can master blenders really judge their creations before they go into final production? I’d imagine prototypes of blends would be prepared in a way similar to the bulk version?

    I primarily smoke a Stokkebye tobacco that I have never had “in tin”. You have me wondering how much better that would be than the bulk. Love the jackets, hope they come out with black and gold! One question, do the materials used attract and collect cat and dog hair easily? I smoke outside 99% of the time but on occasion I would be wearing the jacket inside. As usual, informative and entertaining show!

    Great episode the smoking jackets look nice maybe I will put in an order for one.

    Just never cared for bulk tobaccos that much.

    I really like these smoking jackets. They are just awesome to look at. Other than price, I think most of us have the problem of when would we really wear them. I guess out on the deck on a cool autumn or spring evening would work.

    Brian,

    Great episode and really enjoyed the interview with Beth Stern. I prefer the classic style with quilted silk on the inside and big pockets to keep the accessories close at hand.

    Question regarding your bulk tobacco analogy - does your theory hold true for bulk tobacco of tinned blends? In other words, is the tin of Blend A still a single malt compared to bulk of the same Blend A? Do they typically use a lesser quality when packaging Blend A in bulk?

    Looking forward to your anniversary special!
