    Got 3 oz. of Dunhill's Elizabethan Mixture. What made it such a great buy was it was buy 2 get one free. I'll be going back to get some more.

    100g of Frog Morton Across the Pond

    That was a really big sin, not to order from Boswell and forget to partake in Northwoods.

    Oh I should have 8oz of the Northwoods headed my way sometime soon. My brother is paying me back for helping him put up his fence, so no sin has been committed! Him telling me he was ordering the northwoods prompted me to order the other blends I have wanted to try!

    Got my first ever internet order today. Thank you, Rich - you were great. Waiting on some new cobs to arrive before I try my tobaccos; I want a clean start for them.

    I'm excited to depart from Canadian drugstore tobaccos! All aromatics this round:
    Gawith Hoggarth - Bob's Chocolate Flake
    Gawith Hoggarth - Top Black Cherry
    McClelland - Tastemaster
    Dan - Da Vinci

    As you can see I went with blends that have a reputation for quality, the reviews I've read have mostly been positive about all four. Got a little variety in the casings - chocolate, cherry, and red wine - hoping they smell and taste as good as they sound.

    Just placed my next order. Let the TAD commence.

    Thanks! I don't mind about TAD as long as my orders keep coming through and that pipe legislation dies in Congress.

    I'm going to get two English blends and Va/Pers apiece next time; my first foray into natural tobaccos. I'm eager to find out which kinds I'll favour.

    Haven't posted up recently...

    2 weeks ago, I got:
    3 oz. Dunhill's Standard Mixture
    2 oz. SG FDF

    This past week, I got:
    4 oz. SG FDF
    a tin of SG FVF (which brings me up to 2 unopened tins for the cellar, and one tins worth in a mason jar to smoke for the time being.)

    I just did the math and discovered, I have about 5 pounds in my stash. Most is in mason jars with a few in their tins. I figure at the rate I smoke, that should last me at least into the next decade... LOL!

    Here's a first of the year order I put together from various sources, including my B&M. More of a restocking/filling out than a serious bout of random TAD ordering, I suppose. Except for the Pipeworks elements, it's all in the cellar or on the way. I have to remember to call Carole before work (time zones... this post is something of a reminder to self)

    500g Rattray: Black Mallory
    500g Escudo Navy de Luxe
    150 g Peterson's Luxury Blend
    150 g Peterson's Connoiseur's Choice
    100g McClelland Easy Street
    1 lb. Proper English
    8 oz Sasha Plus
    4 oz shortcut to mushrooms
    1 lb. Wilke 193
    8 oz Wilke 400
    8 oz Grammercy Park

    I expect I'll add some of Sterling's selections, once I've gotten through the sampling phase.

    Just ordered in a fairly good order: G.L. Pease Maltese Falcon and Chelsea Morning, MacB Black Ambrosia, and Villiger 1888 Mid-Day. 100g of each, excepting the Mid-Day, of which I purchased 50g.
    I wish I had the resources to purchase several pounds of tobacco, like some of y'all. Oh well...I have many, many years to cellar. Unless the gov't decides it wants to take away my rights.

    Individual tins:

    Escudo Navy Deluxe
    Presbyterian Mixture
    Gordon Pym
    Dorisco Mixture

    These are my first non-aromatic tobaccos. I enjoyed a bowl of Presbyterian earlier, though it will take me awhile to consciously appreciate the flavours. To put it simply, I liked it. I got Escudo to be my first VaPer, Pym to be my first taste of Syrian latakia, and Dorisco to be my first combination of Perique and Latakia at once. I have pipes dedicated to each style so I can get used to their particulars without any ghosting.

    Got another order on the way, going to place a bigger one when it arrives.

    My TAD struck harder this week than it has so far;

    Starting at my local B&M, I bought a tin (50g) of Petersons Irish Flake with the atrocious marked price of $32.99...normally, I would have walked away, but I felt for the poor proprietor, so I caved.

    Well, once I got home, I loaded up a flake, and enjoyed it so much, I hit up 4noggins for another 4 tins (200g - gotta love the Canadian import laws, eh?).

    Since I was already there, I decided to place a couple more orders;
    Order 2 (for the cellar):
    4x 50g tins - Dan Tobacco Vanilla Honeydew
    Order 3 (for sampling):
    2oz - Bald Headed Teacher bulk
    2oz - Peter Stokkebye Black Truffle bulk
    2oz - Hearth and Home Butternut Burley bulk

    Then, seeing as I was already on the net, I decided to try out a couple of tobacco's from Sterling, picking up (for immediate smoking). In a stretch of awesomeness, the proprietor is splitting this into two orders, and tossing in 2.5oz of his house blend with one.
    2.5oz - My Buddy
    2.5oz - Double Eagle
    2.5oz - Club House

    With the current frenzy of tobacco buying, I've been sitting on the
    sidelines, since the past few years have been spent quietly building the
    cellar... Then, I discovered I like the new Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls &
    the Flake. OK, so after securing a few sleeves of each I still had the
    itch. I pulled the trigger on a few bricks of Wessex Gold Brick.
    This ought to do it for awhile....

    Opened my first tinned tobacco yesterday - Royal Yacht. Different than I expected (although very new so maybe didn't know what to expect). Enjoyed it, but need a couple more samples to make an informed decision.

    Expecting delivery this afternoon (hopefully waiting for me at home already) of 7 Seas Gold and GL Pease Maltese Falcon.

    I stopped in to my local B&M this afternoon to ask about the blend they recommneded a couple weeks back and learned it is in fact Lane 1Q, which I've enjoyed.

    Suggestions on what to have tonight? 1Q, Royal Yacht, 7 Seas or Maltese Falcon?

    Tommy,

    Would you mind sharing where you got the Penzance?

    Sean,

    Try the 1Q, it will be a nice counter to Royal Yacht.

    Thanks William. I'm actually excited about the 2 new ones, so I may go with new ones.

    I'm trying to get a well rounded exposure to different types and blends as I'm interested in building the cellar at some point soon.

    NOTE TO SELF: start having them shipped to the office rather than home. Wife arrives before me and this TAD may start becoming more apparent than I like!

    Got lots of goodies today,

    16oz of my beloved Irish Creme
    8oz Mild Burley
    8oz Old Companion
    8oz Anniversary Cake

    A tin of Mac Baren virginia flake -- to be opened upon graduation from univeristy

    a tin of Oriental 996 -- to be opened upon repayment of my student loans

    A tin of Dark Star that sounds a bit rattly and dry that I may have to open and make sure isn't dried out -- which will either result in smoking on the spot or stocking in a ball jar afterwards, to be smoked upon finding the girl I plan on marrying. Or if I do end up smoking it on the spot due to it being dried I suppose I'll replace it with something else for that occasion.

    Okay I opened it and I suppose it was just the unique tinning that caused the sound -- perfectly moist and aeromatic tobacco. In fact, it smelled so fine without even thinking about it a chewed a small bit of it. . . which taught me a lesson I honestly thought I was done learning all over again. Just because it smells good does not mean I should eat it (anecdotally an example of this is when I absently bit a girl in high-school during a heavy-petting session because she smelled like strawberries) -- on the plus side it wasn't the most unpleasant thing I've put in my mouth this way -- which when you think about it is kinda sad. . ..

    Anyway I'll have a bowl of this since it's open anyway and store the rest for that girl thing I mentioned a bit back heh heh. Well, I'll actually msoke a bit later. . . since my mouth kinda just tastes like toothpaste now.

    Sincerely,

    Yoru

    I think it is well worth the price (which is pretty terrific when you compare it with other similar quality/tasting tobacco)-- a nice medium strength latakia-rich blend that's kind of fun to play with. I'd tell you to order a couple of ounces and see if you like it, but the shipping costs will kill you; they more than double the price. Maybe work a bit into a larger order-- they do samplers, as you probably know-- but more fun to put your own together.

    I stopped by Goodfellas today and grabbed a tin of Solani X Sweet Mystery and a 25g bag of McClelland Raspberry Cream. I've been dying to try the Solani ever since I ran out of PS Black Currant Cavendish.

    - Longbottom Leaf
    - Ruins of Isengard
    - Old Toby

    I also had the folks at smokingpipes.com put me on a waiting list for some Dunhill and Peterson tins. Though they said it would be about 2 weeks before they got more. The new stuff should keep me occupied until then.
