Rub-a-dub-dub. What tobacco do you like that comes in a tub? For a long time, I had a tub of Granger in rotation but donated the last ounce or two to our veteran friends who were taking up the briar. Since then, I've discovered PC Midtown Chestnut, the only non-aromatic in the series, with both burley and Virginia, and some Lat and Per too. When I want to fill up a big bowl for a slow smoke, this one hits the spot. If I want a variation, I can dust in a little Izmir, Cav, cigar leaf, or dark fired. It goes great in a wider bowl so everything can sing at once. It fills a spot between my other non-aromatics, a few aromatics I like, and Va/Per and English that I enjoy. I like Carter Hall and Prince Albert, but buy them in pouches now and then. Chestnut kind of fills the bill for tub tobacco for me. What are your tubby friends?
