    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..

    @Madox07, true, definitively Denmark has a wide array of tobaccoes available and especially those that are only sold domestically.

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

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

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

    You're not quite as spoiled for choice in the UK as you are in the US.

    Although Japan has lots of pipe collectors I know of only one source of
    pipe tobacco in Japan - the Smokeshop (mainly cigars) in Tokyo's Imperial
    hotel. They stock a grand total of TWO pipe tobaccos. Americans are living
    in a Shopper's (and pipe-smoker's) Paradise.

    My ranking would be if you´re only having a sight on varietys offered:
    1. USA
    2. Germany
    3. Switzerland
    3. Denmark
    4. England
    5. Spain
    6. Italy

    I live in Germany and I´m from Scotland. And the UK has not too much to offer, The biggest range are the Lakelands and that´s it.Pricey aswell.

    @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

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