I was just pondering on how limited is a number of countries with a real wide array of pipe tobaccos worldwide, in reality, today, there are only a few, particularly: 1 USA, 2 England, 3 Germany 4 Denmark 5 Spain, and 6 Italy to some degree, that's all about it. Something to think about.

Interesting that in your ranking Denmark falls behind Germany. I have never been ... but given their pipe making tradition, I would imagine one would find plenty of stuff to smoke around there, and fill those nice expensive pipes..

Denmark has very good pipe and tobacco shops, especially considering its size, around 6 million people, compared to Germany's 90-100 million.

There is a huge inventory of tobacco in China. But it’s in the possession of only a handful of billionaires. :|

@tufftony I live in South Korea and make rather frequent visits to Japan, and I cannot really agree. I've been to three shops in Tokyo that would sell pipe tobacco, and one shop would even have a blend unavailable in other countries, the Dunhill Ultra Mild as of January 2018. I do agree on that the Americans are living in a relative smoker's paradise tho :lol:

Compared to the selection and relative low cost of blends in the US, I'd say so let everywhere else is a tobacco desert.
