Price increases are only one of my worries. And forget about the FDA for a moment. I heard the other day that the EU is pursuing rather strict tobacco regulation that would require onerous testing for pipe tobacco and may well drive some of the prominent blenders out of business, or at minimum would cause them to have to significantly raise their prices to cover horrifically expensive laboratory testing for all blends. As with the FDA debacle, we have some time before that shoe drops. Cellar now.
