Has anyone tried this blend and if so is it something they would either add to their rotation (supply allowing) or consider cellaring?
Thank you-
Billy

Wow...glad I didn't hesitate.
"this is the classic English blend you know and love, with the addition of the truffle of condiment tobaccos: Perique."
I hate truffle oil. Tastes like brake fluid.

That's the very thing I didn't care for. I like Squadron Leader, and the Perique changed the taste far too much for my liking.

Hmmm this is something new for me ... I have seen the green squadron leader tin on some facebook pages, but didn't arouse my curiosity. Perhaps I will give it a try. Not much of a fan of perique when used in excess...

I did see it earlier on but kept the TAD in check, having managed to snag a couple tins of Bothy.. There's no guarantee I'd like it, as I'm not a fan of perique. I opted to leave it to those who'll likely enjoy it more than I.

3000 tins with the 6 tin limit means it could be gone in 500 orders. The kinda thing you had to jump on like the C&D small batch

Shane Ireland's hints about a limited release a day or two after the most recent Pipes Magazine Radio Show episode was released were a bit postmature. It was all sold out hours before the show aired.

It does give you a hint of how many orders they must get, although I'm sure desirable limited releases cause spikes.
