    So i pulled the trigger on some TAD just now. Ordered a 50g tin each of Squadron Leader, GL.P. Cairo, Frog Morton, and FVF from Smokingpipes. As i am up in Nova Scotia i fully expect to pay some customs duty but at $50 all in with shipping its a heck of a lot cheaper than going to the local B&M.

    All are totally new to me, and my tobac exp is quite narrow, so i'm hoping to expand my tates some. I aimed to shotgun a bunch of blends that gave me a good range of flavours. I've been smoking aro's so far and i want more...

    Fingers crossed it all makes its way over the border no problems. My fear is that it gets seized. I have no problem paying duty, but i don't want to lose it all....expecially with the FVF in there, knowing how hard it is to get your hands on some.

    Most of us havent had any issues with orders around 200gm. I've paid duty on one shipment, but like you stated it's still worth it compared to local prices.

    I have never had one seized coming to me in Canada. And in fact, have only been tagged with duty three times now, and I have ordered a lot of stuff. I think you will be fine. Personally, I would have kept it at 200g or less, but it may slide through at 250.

    Best of luck! We have quite a few Canadian members here who order tobacco from the USA. As long as the package is properly labeled (which it is from the sponsors here, from what I'm told), I've never read about anyone ever having a package seized/confiscated.

    I'm a huge fan of Cairo. Let us know what you think.
