I thought it over for four days. I pondered it deeply. I decided not to. Then I decided I should. Back and forth. This is my kind of blend (one of them...). So I did it. If the tobacco tyrants prevail, I'll have some goodies in the cellar. The price is great, and the blend has good recommendations. As moderately and gradually as I smoke, I should have legacy blends to spare.
Likewise mso489, I found myself debating whether or not to grab a tin at such a great price.. or to hold out and save for a larger order next month. Well when they announced the fusiliers ration special, I ordered 3oz of it and threw in the tin of potlatch as well.
PC points out this is an old-timey blend with a number of tobaccos nicely married. I do like an "American" English with burley. Russ O. at PC has a blend in the same genre with his match to Walnut, Chestnut as the only blend in their Midtown series that is non-aromatic, which I've been enjoying for quite a while in its tub.
I admit this is the largest quantity of a blend I've bought before sampling it in smaller quantity, and I already have a 2 oz. tin on hand. But studying the constituent leaf, I decided it would work for me, most likely, and took this wild leap of faith into the piping stratosphere. I'm just a wild and crazy guy. Seattle Pipe Club has a sterling rep, so it's not really much of a gamble.
