3 tins of Orlik Golden Sliced with the buy two get one free Father's Day special at P&C.
Order total: $18.85 including the $3.99 USPS first class shipping charge.

My favorite inexpensive tinned tobacco.
That is about the cost of getting one tin of Golden Sliced locally in Santa Fe.

Smoking pipes has McConnell Scottish Cake in stock.
Can't sleep, so I was browsing tobacco, made the discovery and ordered two tins (two tins/day limit).

P&Cs just announced a 48 hour 10-20-25% off sale. So I stocked up on some more 3.5 ounce tins of McCl St. James Woods and also got 19 ounces of their bulk 2015 Vaper, which I love almost more than the SJWs.

Such a deal. Over 2 pounds of exquisite tobacco for $101, and no tax and free shipping. My little hallway closet/ cellar is burgeoning.

Two more tins of Scottish Cake while it's still in stock at Smokingpipes.

Two 500 gram boxes of Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co Brown Flake unscented. 10% off, no tax, and free shipping at 4 Noggins. Such a deal. I now have Brown Flake coming out my ears. I'm swimming in Brown Flake.

Is that the pipe Morley handed you while popping out of a cake on Father's Day when you returned home from Ace Hardware after going there to rescue a stripper named Dawn who'd been out in the Arizona sun too long?

I'm a little foggy today so I'm not sure I've got the facts straight. :pipe3:

No, Steve, it's just my first ever attempt to salvage and restore a pipe. Loads of fun.

I know, Goose, and yes, it is!
I've done a few myself and always have enjoyed watching a beat up old pipe start to glow again.

It's been quite a ride to read the path taken by answers to your question about all that cake in the estate pipe you're restoring.
How we went from the cake in an old pipe to Morley revealing he'd once been the one to appear from within a cake . . .

Well, nothing short of amazing!
And certainly fun to read.

First two tins of Scottish Cake now reported "delayed" while the other two are scheduled for delivery today.
We shall see.

Enjoy that. It must be kind of similar to McConnell's Scottish Flake, no?

I have maybe about 10 tins of SF sleeping in my hall closet "cellar." :signofcross:

I understand they are similar, but not the same.

My order was based on a friend's very favorable recommendation, and as Smokingpipes has the best price I've found but rarely has it in stock I decided to order some while I could.

I'll pop a tin when it arrives and cellar the others.

I really need to get more Scottish Flake. That stuff is fantastic. Perhaps next year.

And I have the renowned HugoDrax to thank for Scottish Flake. He sent me a sample last year.

But no one had any but 4Noggins, and only 6 tins. I had to wait months to get the other eight I ordered.

Just ordered a couple of tins of SG Full Virginia Flake.
I'll cellar them when they get here and pop an aged tin.

Or crack a new tin and let the aging one become even better?

As for me, part of a P&Cs order came today, four 3.5 ounce tins of McCl. St. James Woods I bought during that 24 hour 20% off sale they had last week. Now I'll have 9 of these aging, and I'll be patiently waiting. <redacted_emoji>

Last tin I opened. Beautiful Virginia-Perique flake:
