    There have been a number of threads lately bemoaning the difficulties of getting your grubby mitts on the good stuff.

    I want you to know that your concerns have not fallen on deaf ears.

    I have met with a consortium of hoarders stockpilers connoisseurs and we have made available this sample tray to help you through the drought.

    Here you will find (clockwise from the top)

    1/3 gram of Butera Pelican from 1997,
    1/3 gram of Penzance from 2006,
    a whopping HALF gram of Samuel Gawith's Full Virginia Flake from 2012 and,
    1/5 gram of Captain Black Grape from Tuesday.

    Plate and pipe nail not included.

    Each sample will be double bagged to ensure no cross contamination. The Grape will also be encased in a huge ball of duct tape.

    First PM followed by PPFF of just $375 scores this gem.

    If it came with a spoon and syringe, I'd be all over it.

    Make those into origami unicorns and they'll sell for sure.

    Is the sampler still available, or is it Out of Stock?

    That's a great deal but I'd have to buy a larger pipe to be able to smoke all that.

    I can't wait for someone to come along and complain about the fact you're only offering ONE.

    Is there enough bits to use the Frank Method?? You do know it's the best one. Along with the world's best lighter, the Zumpfkopft.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    375? Are you insane?

    650, and I'll take it.
    Final offer.

There's talk aboard the ship about how he's been sellin' hisself for extree...profits. Jay ain't become a lady in waiting has he? I mean all that Grape he's got two days age on is proof in itself!

    I may be a waitin' but I'm far from a lady. Or at least they get as far away as they can, usually.

    Ok 800.00 but I want only half. There's no way I'd smoke all that tobacco.

    I have not trusted Western Union since they discontinued telegram service.

    I want to see those 1/32 pint jars. Is that like those ones that you get with a tablespoon of jam in them?

    Is there enough bits to use the Frank Method?? You do know it's the best one. Along with the world's best lighter, the Zumpfkopft.

    I am always frank. Frankly, I'm a bit concerned. I google'd that lighter brand and all I got was a bunch of shrunken head stuff. Note to self: Politely decline any dinner invites from jpmcwjr....

    Reducing price by $5. That grape is stinkin' up the joint.

    Don’t want to be labeled a hoarder so I must refuse.

    I love love those tampers.

    If you are willing to put each blend into 3/4” thick Mylar bags I will consider.

    I actually did mix those together last night for work. It tasted like And So To Bed.
