    We’re proud to announce that the Country Squire has completed this years official tobacco for the show. The first 150 attendees will find a sample in their goodie bags as they arrive.

    An exceptionally smooth smoking mixture with the perfect balance of spice and mellowed-sweetness. Selections of grassy, Flue-Cured Virginias are delicately paired with Dark-Fired Burley and a generous portion of Louisiana Perique. Our tribute to the spirit, complexity, and warmth of New Orleans and the Deep South.

    The Country Squire is proud to offer this tobacco as the Official Blend of the 1st Annual New Orleans Pipe Show

    Will there be much tobacco to buy or sample? I have heard that shows aren't the best place to buy tobacco, because of tax laws. I was just wondering. Thanks.

    Ah, I think they will have some to buy. I don't think Louisiana tobacco tax is all that bad, compared to like Texas....or Florida (85%)

    I didn't mean the percentage of tax, but the reason tobacco is not sold at the Chicago show is that the vendor has to go through the redtape to sell tobacco, which is usually deep.

    But, regardless, if there will be tobacco for sale, that will be awesome!! I am more into buying tobacco than pipes at the moment. Thanks!

    Ah, well there will be tobacco sold here, there are some retailers onsite that will handle the transaction and louisiana sales tax issues. Also rumor has it that a certain vendor has been hoarding esoterica products just for the show.

    On another note, will visitors be able to sell or trade with vendors?

    I have bought lots of tobacco at the Chicago show and without difficulty. Some manufacturers (i.e. McClelland) won't sell to you direct but have arrangements with retailers at the show to transact the sale for you. McClelland usually sells through Iwan Ries.

    I think the show vendor fee in New Orleans is only $25 so most vendors will pay that and be able to sell to visitors. The excise tax on tobacco products is among the lowest in the country and this pass summer the state rejected raising the tax on premium cigars. http://www.cigaraficionado.com/webfeatures/show/id/louisiana-rejects-premium-cigar-tax-hike-18211

    The show should be a good place to stock up on pipes and pipe tobacco.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    There should be tons of tobacco at the show...lots and lots to sample and purchase...any and all trading, swapping and selling is allowable as long as you can find a willing partner...in regards to pipes and tobaccos...any other swapping and selling should be done in the privacy of your hotel room...

    Fleur de Lis should be a good one!

    The blend looks similar to one of my favorites, Missouri Meerschaum's Country Gentleman.

    It too is flue curried red and bright Virginias, Perique and some dark fired Kentucky.

    That sample looks tasty. I bet those 150 sample recipients are going to love it.
