    That'd be a small horse

    Looks good though, what/where is it?

    btp, I won't ask how you know...

    Dottie, I'm impressed that it comes in a heavy-weight, heat-sealed Mylar bag.

    Dong and dung are equally displeasing concepts when it comes to smoking.

    Crash, this came to me from Smokingpipes. It ain't cheap, but I had a mysterious credit on my account there that almost covered the cost, so....

    Curly Block is one of my favorite new blends. I know it is going to be awesome with some age. I bought one rope to smoke and others to age.

    A guy who invests in an industry which is showing signs of demise ... he has balls. Common sense? Open for discussion.

    No balls needed. Just some free time to enjoy.

    It is, IMHO, one of the best tobaccos available. I cellared it very deep last year. Cube cut or rubbed out as below, are all good methods. Needs drying time for sure. This is an excellent VaPer curly cut to my tastes. I'm good for the apocalypse at this point.

    One of these days I am going to have to take the plunge and purchase me some Curly Block; however, after this post I am not sure I would be able to get past how veiny the outer leaf looks.

    I've done the math and the weight-to-curly-per-bowl averages out to the same cost as Escudo over time for me. So I decided to stock up for the long haul. The sticker shock is real, but having some in the cellar is priceless.

    Was this the tobacco that they turned you in to your state tax man for? Ask your auditor what the tax rate is on horse dong. It might get you off the hook in a pinch.

    I started with one block, now I have 4 in matter of 2 weeks.

    This is better than DNR and Escudo, it is not a dry smoke! its sweet and flavorful. On my top 3 vaper list of all time.

    Tempting but too expensive and I dare not imagine the customs fee in Canada. I have enough tobacco to last me a lifetime with very nice Va/Pers and Escudo is just too good with plenty of McClelland 2015 left also.

    rmpeeps, thanks pal. You are going to want to smoke one of those ropes now as it is really tasty fresh. Then you can start putting more in the cellar, week after week, month after month, year after year.

    Question for those who bought this one for their cellar - are you leaving it in the sealed bag it came in, or opening and jarring portions?
    If you're leaving in bags, are there any thoughts how long this is good for?

    It's packed ion a good quality Mylar bag, but it isn't a foil laminate. It may keep forever in that bag, it may not. I'm going to slice up some big chunks into the really small Ball jars (2oz?), but I'm also going to put a whole stick, sealed in the bag, into one of the tall Ball jars (you know, the Asparagus-sized ones?). My thought is that it will take me quite a while to smoke through an entire log, so better to jar it in bite-sized bits. The sealed Mylar bag will make for good trading fodder in five years.

    Thinking about it a bit further, I recall Mike McNeil strongly recommending not aging tobacco in plastic... I interpreted through his comments that it was because of the 'out gassing' chemicals of the plastic tainting the tobacco.
    In any case, at this stage I'll leave mine in their plastic, and jar as Woods suggested.

    This is excellent tobacco. I cut mine into thirds and stored it in smaller mason jars for longer term aging. It is quite good fresh though

    Curly Block needs to be taken out of the plastic and put in jars. The bags they come in are not for long term storage. I really wish they were because I hate jarring tobacco.

    How did you jar yours, Harris and npod?
    As whole logs, or cut chunks? What size jars?
    I am erring on the side or leave in bag, and put in large jar as woods suggested. Tobacco collaring is fun isn't it!

    Here are photos of my setup. I use Bormioli Rocco Fido jars (the same ones my grandma used to store pickles and olives long term).

    You can put 6 Curly Blocks in one 5 Liter jar (shown below). I then seal and double wrap with parafin wax. I keep the blocks in their original mylar bags and just stuff 6 in a jar.

    My new puppy LOVES the smell of Curly Block

    *Note: my post above was incorrect, the jars hold 6 blocks, not 3.

    Fido jars are the best for long term storage out of all the bail tops I have tried over the years. More expensive but definitely worth it.

    I missed out on the Curly Block at SPC and couldn’t find it anywhere else. So, I went to the source. They were easy to work with (Jaqueline speaks great English) and I received my package in a week. They threw in the No.100 sample and the lighter. The 100 smells great, looking forward to trying it.

    My bill, with conversion and shipping, was just short of $250 for the 4 blocks. One thing though, their shipping is a flat rate...same for 1 or 8. I added a few to “spread” the shipping cost across more items.

    I guess it was worth the little extra work and wait.

    @eltice ... WOW, doing the math, and assuming approx $40 shipping from Germany based on my past experienc, then you spent $52.50 each Curly block. That is almost $20 cheaper than SPC price per 250 gram unit.

    Just double checked my CC, it was $246.92 to be exact. IIRC, shipping was a flat €29 ($34.80 @1.2 conversion rate).

    They were very good/easy to work with too!
