    Does anyone else have fond memories of some of the old English and Balkan style blends from the Tinderbox?

    I was a regular there, years ago when their stores were more common. I smoked their Burley #2 blend as my mainstay but for Christmas or other occasion my wife would treat me to one of the sampler packs they offered. I generally went with the English style assortment. My taste buds weren't as cultivated in those days I guess, because while I appreciated them, I didn't want to switch. I did find their blends called "Connoissuer", "Epicurean" and "Philosopher" to be quite enjoyable. I believe "Philosopher" is still available, but I'm not sure if it's the same blend.

    Anyone know of an equivalent to these?

    I believe that most of the Tinder Box blends were from Lane Ltd., and Peter Stokkebye.
    For example: The Tinder Box called Lane Ltd. 1Q Wilshire

    Almost no one ships pipe tobacco to Washington state nowadays.

    If this Tinderbox is still in operation, just order from them. I am sure what they don't have in stock, they can get for you: http://www.tinderboxinternational.com/store_pages/p358.htm

    If that Tinderbox in Tacoma is closed, one just has to get creative; it can be done.

    I remember smoking an aromatic from Tinderbox called Norsegold. Have no idea what Lane tobacco that would be but it was a yellow and black ribbon cavandish. Used to go to the Tinderbox in Bellevue when in WA wonder if they are still there.
