So you'll be ordering from them again. Great! I'm sure they appreciate your servitude. Customer service is overrated anyway.

Customer servitude is essential to unquality care.

If I wasn't on a budget I would solely order from Bosewell's, KBV, Storyteller, Peretti, Country Squire and a few others. Really appreciate the service I've gotten from them (well maybe not Peretti but they're their own thing).

I got one tin...never being someone who had ever enjoyed a Sutliff labeled Virginia, I was skeptical, but curious. It turns out, this still tastes very “Sutliffy” to me, but this is one I am actually able to enjoy. I am glad I have a tin, but I won’t miss it when it’s gone. I’m okay with that!

Peretti is very... efficient. I do adore their Oriental blends.

Man, this stuff is great. Super smooth and mellow, but with depth of flavor and just a bit of tang. Based on how sticky it is, I thought it would take more drying time than it did. About an hour worked great for me.
Not the moisture so much as it is breaking the stuff up & rubbing it out. Something like Irish Blessing is much worse. I've had a tin of that open in the car for 4 days now & it still gurgles!

I just opened today a tin I recently got from KBV.

When I opened it, the only scent was the smell of Vinegar, quite strong too.

I separated the flakes, after a few minutes, I started to get a slightly soap scent, along with the vinegar.

There is only the slightest scent of a tobacco smell, and I do mean slight, and my nose does have to search for it too.

I was told by a B&M shop I called, to let this dry for 4 days before smoking... hmm

KBV, has more in stock, and I was ready to pull the trigger and buy a few more tins, but I thought I was going to be greeted by scents of pepper, fruits, grass, floral, etc., not this.

Maybe my nose isn’t educated enough, and I need to keep sniffing in the tin, hunting out the scents, it does fell like this one does take some education.

I don't remember the 2019 version getting this much love. In fact I didn't even open a 2019 tin until after the 2020 was released. Figured I'd be able to snag a few tins if it was noticeably better than say 515... now I see the internet has ruined it for me ?
