P&C has these on the back page of their catalog. Who has tried them?

I'm betting that most of us think these are too inexpensive to be of any real value.

It's funny how merchandising works sometimes.

My thought processes didn't focus on the price so much. I like Lane bulk tobacco, and Sutliff in tins, and they aren't pricey. I just didn't know what to make of the humor. I like jokes, whimsy, and madcap presentations, but when that is central to the product, I don't quite know what to make of it. Have I gotten my money's worth by getting the tin with the joke on the front, or does it hide a really tasty blend? So far, I suspect it is just a good joke but maybe not such a good set of blends. I'd be happy to hear anyone report on these and how they smoked. I think I'd be inclined to send off for a tin of Fire Storm to try, before one of these, for a few bucks more.

mso489, I can attest to Fire Storm's satisfying qualities, having participated in the PaxCrawl in April, that was the climactic or last week's blend to smoke.

I still wonder about the contents of these P&C tins. Russ must have had a hand in the blending?

If so, they've GOT to be smokable, at the very least.

My first thought would be, is that they are the Smoker's Pride blends in a tin. There's nothing wrong with Smoker's Pride, they are just not likely to be knock your socks off blends.

I've explored their descriptions on P&C's website...which always seems balky to me....and they're all 'inexpensive' aros...with toppings and nothing exotic mentioned. i.e. no lat, oriental, dk fired, or otherwise distinctive.

A vanilla, a cherry, a whiskey, a rum, and something else, I forget already.

I enjoy an occasional aro, but mostly I smoke non-aros, so I am especially picky. I want only tobacco forward aros.

mso, I am also not an aro smoker but I really enjoy Peterson University Flake as to my tastes it is very tobacco forward but with some really nice plum notes. I consider it a hybrid aro.

I have experience with Out Of Office Locked Out blend. I like it. Dries easy, smokes cool, and has a nice room note. But i am a lower experienced smoker, could be more of a "new guy" smoke.

I have been smoking the "Gone Fishin" blend. Out of the tin its very wet and sticky and actually smells like rum and caramel. I would say as an aromatic its ok, arguably better than something like Captain Black as I can actually taste something but nowhere near as good as something like Three Blind Moose.

Gone Fishin' is perfect beginner's blend. No bite, smooth, taste remains constant through the smoke. Not too heavy and is sweet. I have wanted another tin, but have too much else to go before it. A good, cheap summer smoke. It is very wet, and sticky...but no problems burning it, wet or dry. If you have $10 lingering....get a tin and a cob...head out to where you fish and have at it. I don't regret it. Overall, a decent, sweet treat. In the hot sun, when Nightcap just doesn't fit....I like it.

My favorite tobacco is a tough call between S.P.S. Breckinridge and Admiral's Choice. Admirals choice is drug store cavendish that's $10 for 8 oz....so price isn't a factor in my decisions.

I would totally agree with you Tyler "Gone Fishin" is a great beginner blend as well as being bite free. I'll have to try it in my cob next time...
