    Hello all and good morning. I'll keep this short and sweet. I am a big Escudo fan and I am curious as to what another good vaper would be to own that is readily available and great for cellaring.

    Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake is a great one. It is a coin flake like Escudo but with a sweet cavendish center that sweetens up the smoke when you least expect it. It ages really good. I'm smoking some 3 yr old LBF and it's heaven. The price is just right and won't break your bank. Most online tobacconists carry LBF.

    Excellent suggestions. I have looked into LBF and Solani 663 since I do like their 660 Silver. I will put in an order now

    Do people consider Doblone d'Oro a VaPer?

    I do. Although the Kentucky does have quite a bit of influence in the blend.

    Yep, good choices.

    Haven't had the Reiner or the Davidoff but the other three are excellent imo. I've gone deep with the 633 and Doblone d'Oro.

    I just put in an order for 3 tins of 633, 3 tins of Orlik, 3 tins of Sav d'oro, LBF and so I think I will enjoy all of these. Thank you for the recommendations

    And of course Escudo! It’s a bit more expensive but it’s spectacular, especially with age. I popped a 10 year old tin this winter, it was the fastest I have ever made it through a tin.

    I’d also recommend GLP Fillmore, however there is a little bit of Latakia in it, so I would sample it before laying in a big stash as it’s not for everyone (myself I really only detected it when I was looking for it, it truly is just there to round out the blend, but if you’re sensitive to Latakia it may be too much).

    It took me forever to try this one but now that I have I absolutely agree, it’s an excellent VaPer.

    Highly recommend Viprati. H&H Virginia Spice is surprisingly nice and a bargain blend. HU Director's Cut is fabulous. There's so many good VaPers it's ridiculous. Just a matter of finding the mix that fits your fancy the best.

    I will second Viprati, so very nice indeed. I will also give another nod to Davidoff Medallions.

    Not exactly "readily available" but can usually be found (either on ebay or, more rarely, some smaller online tobacco retailers). It might cost you $10 an oz, but it's out there, and it is my favorite VaPer so far, Esoterica Dunbar.

    Esoterica Dunbar, C&D Bayou Morning Flake, Castello Fiammata, D&R Rimboche’ SJ, and GLP Stratford are my top 5 in order. Honorable mention to SG St.James Flake, Rattray’s Marlin Flake, and GLP Telegraph Hill. I could name a lot more pretty good ones. It is a buyer’s market for the blends that are available (generally all but the Esoterica, Rattray’s, and SG).

    The RO Perique Series are worth a look as well. GP-11 is one of my very top Va/Pers.

    Hmmm...my Secret Santa sent me a tin of Viprati. It's still sealed in my cellar. Now, I am curious.
