Hi All,
Been a while since I've been around.. I hope you are all well.. recently I had a trip to Dubai, in which I decided to stash on baccy since it is getting awful in Egypt and finding any is a hard task, so I got that awesome collection from Dubai Duty Free. And I also had some tea pairing for them from the awesome TWG shop.

Nice haul. Good to see you made in back safely and scored some good stuff. Is it hard or impossible to do mail order in Egypt?

I tried once from 4noggins, and Egyptian customs savaged me on taxes and fees. there was a whole thread about it here.. I had to pay 50$ for a 46$ order.
Nice haul Ahmad. The Davidoff Flake Medallions are one of my favorites.
They became one of my favourites instantly,alongside the Danish mixture

Nice score, I had a sample of Viginia Honey years ago, but its hard to find (reasonable price) in the US

Nice score. I just went to the Bahamas and all I saw was cigars in the duty free shops. So. Stocked up on Scotch instead.

@Buster good plan.. Dubai is mainly cigar oriented as well, there is rarely any good baccy other than Duty Free

Why does the vanilla cream have a picture of a cigarette on it?
Vanilla Cream is the only baccy I bought from inside Dubai, rather than Duty Free, so it follows the regulations of putting labels on tobacco products saying you'll totally die

On one of the latest Inter Tabac fairs I took a sample of Bentley The London Pine with me. I smoked it at home and it was one of the foulest latakia blends I ever smoked. Chemical with a strange light off-putting pine cone topping..

That's Lysol. Keeps it germ-free. It's good for you citizen so learn to like it! haha

The way this is going, they're going to start claiming that you'll be struck by lightning if you even think about smoking, or that it will make you go blind or put hair on your palms.
Nanny states!
