Searching for a blend that is as delicious as Presbyterian without the same price tag:
Let me preface by saying I did a search trying to find a similar topic but nothing came up that was too similar I think.
Only recently have I taken to pipe smoking (Dec 2012) and I love it. I breathe better than when I was smoking a pack or more a day and a few pipe smokes a day is infinitely more pleasurable than those aforementioned cigarettes (With this improved breathing potential I should probably go ahead and meditate on the breath).
Ive smoked a few blends from my local tobacconist and every 50 gram pack Ive found here in Toronto. Ultimately, upon recommendation from my tobacconist when I asked for Scot Blend I bought Presbyterian, and now want nothing else. Unfortunately, shopping around, no one sells it in Toronto for less than $24.50 a tin, and to smoke at that price isnt an option without billions invested into Genetic and Epigenetic research on tobacco-neurochemical-dependency to make me not enjoy smoking. With this problem I`ve come here:
Im looking to buy online but in order to buy tax free one has to buy a product that isnt already sold in Canada, though I would happily buy in Canada if such a tobacco exists here. Furthermore, though there are countless topics of this nature already from what I could see through searching, maybe the question I mean to ask is, what is a Scot blend, or at least, what is Presbyterian and what might I wanna shop around for description wise to land upon something similar to Presbyterian.
Furthermore, I will say I dont know any other pipe smokers so aside from this post disappearing into countless threads, your secret is safe with me and you shouldnt end up seeing your favourite blend disappear off the market.
