Starting to Get Obsessed
Cool post topic, thanks!

McClelland nailed elegance with their Personal Reserve series. The tin at the bottom is their Dark Star blend. Gaslight and 3 Oaks Syrian are long-time favorites, and the Wilderness label has always looked cool to me.

Rattray's Red Rapparee is really creative, and Old Ironsides is just a classic. I just realized I had different versions of the Squadron Leader tin. It's a favorite of mine.

Ok, some have new tins and some have old tins.

I'd say vintage tins are superior overall in the design even if we leave out the hideous warning of today.

But I'm also a fan of sign paintings of old and the galant use of fonts. Hand made. Not computer made.

I receive catalogues offering pipe blends with catchy names and terrific art work.... that I never heard of before. Before I get all excited and order a blend because it "looks" cool, I stop and remind myself that "you can't judge a book by it's cover.". Or a tobacco for that matter. puffy
