    I guess you could call this a Christmas present to myself. I recently sold some collectible items on ebay, and in turn spent the money on this tobacco order. This is the largest order of tobacco I've ever made as I usually keep my orders fairly small as to not upset the wife. Happy wife... happy life or so they say. My choices were based off of the possibility of certain tobacco's going away with the upcoming FDA deeming regulations. I'm hoping all works out in the court system regarding the deeming regulations, but if not I grabbed some of my favorite tobacco's that will be in jeopardy of going away. This is a nice little addition to the tobacco cellar.

    These will go nicely with the others I have, and of course I had to get some 2016 & 2017 Christmas Cheer. I finally grabbed some Maltese Falcon too, as I always seem to forget that one in my orders.

    That's a nice selection, and yes, that would be a large order for me too. You got some good stuff there. Enjoy!

    Good for you. I just finished up with my end of the year orders. You have most excellent taste.

    If you like Balkan Blue, you might try some CORPS Cyprian Star. It's like Balkan Blue but creamier. I thought it was a little better.

    @josephcross - the bulks are McClelland 2000 Fragrant Mature Cake and 5100 Red Cake. Both are regulars for me, and these will just top off my mason jars.

    Thanks to those who have complimented my taste in tobacco. :puffy:.

    Black sea sokouhm is really really good stuff. Best of the grand orientals I've tried. Most of them seem like Va mixtures with a bit of orientals added, Grand sea is really different stuff.

    As soon as I kick this cold I've had for the last week I plan on cracking open one of the tins of 2016 Christmas Cheer. The last time I had Christmas Cheer was in 2014 and that was some 2013 which was really good.
