I was browsing a retailer the other day, and it popped up on their page that they had Bengal Slices in stock. So, I had to get some. It just showed up today. I probably won't smoke them for a bit, as it's sooooo cold here. It's been below 0F for weeks. I want to give it a relaxed try. But I can say I'm impressed but the tin art. I'm loving the black/gold/red colors and very impressed by the embossed artwork on the sticker. (yes, this is crap I look at) I love that it has an old school look and feel. I find a lot of the 'newer' tin art weak. They will just throw a photo on the tin and take a lunch.
Anyway, I look forward to sampling it. Now, if I fall in love, hopefully I can get more.

You have to look for the special label around the edge of the tin in very small writing that says 'Standard Tobacco Company of Pennsylvania Ltd as successors to El Crappo Tobacco Unlimited Ltd do not accept this product if it does not bare the imprint and girth size of the respective board members penises!' otherwise it is definitely a Russian or Chinese knock off. :rofl:

Presuming that would be in millimeters?
And was "bare" an intentional typo? A Freudian slut as it were?

Good lord Dan I thought all those prototype tins had been sold to that German fellow we met at the Chicago Pipe Show. You remember the one I insulted by telling him he couldn't have any tins and when he asked why I said it was because his lot had lost the war!

Damn that's why I found a shard of Crack Rock in my Bengals Slices. Smoked that shit and stayed up for two days. Ordered two more tins and the shit was a bomb. :mrgreen:

Perdurabo, that would be from our brief association with the "El Chapo Tobacco and Other Stuff Co.". We haven't been able to contact their CEO for a while though, so we've had to eliminate the Cracker Jack prizes for now.

That was the nice Mexican fellow who wanted us to launch a line of cannabis infused pipe tobaccos under the name 'El Chapo's Own Blend' and when we tried the prototype out on Jim Inks he kept saying 'Wow. Big dogs. Big dogs! I need a young priest and a large padded chair....' followed by endless Edward G Robinson impressions. We thought it wise to decline the Mexican fellows offer! :rofl:

I went the first year, not really my scene. I took the picture at my local watering hole, they have Eaux Claires glasses, among other stuff. I live in Eau Claire. Justin is my cousin.
Have you been to it?
