I emailed one of the tobacconists in Malta to inquire what brands they stock.
One he mentioned was Rattray's. It seems our US webtailers are OOS on almost all blends. Is that typically hard to find here, and something I should pick up?
Seems like a good sample from everything offered in Europe .
I don't see Mac Baren and Peterson though, Capstan either.
On recommendations - I guess it depends if you are seeking blends that you can't usually buy in the States or just looking to buy whatever is good.
