Escudo, Cabbie's Mixture, and 633 are favorites of mine.

I have a little bulk Per inbound.

The TFB R&D Lab, having had such a smashing success with the revised Burley blends, is slotted to begin discovery around Christmas. This is the 3rd offering on the R&D Table.

At The Tobacco Fairy HQ, we believe being transparent to intent is crucial for a positive customer experience. Unlike other Brand X CPS R&D outfits, apparently.

Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake. I like it and it is easy to find. Some time ago I had special-ordered a small amount from a local tobacco shop, but they brought more in to give it a try. Turned out to be one of their best sellers, so now they keep it in stock.
I'll second this one. And cheap. While not really a VA/Per the twist flake is also excellent.

Forgot about cabbies mixture. It's great, but I don't think of it as a vapor because of all the licorice. I'm wrong, though. It's a vaper.

This stuff's hard to find. It's on my wish list as both a vaper and for the licorice.

Add my name as well.

I've tried Beacon before, apparently, because I still have the empty tin.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Escudo. Aged Escudo makes be think of fresh baked cinnamon raisin bread. Mostly raisin in the tin note. Mostly cinnamon bread in the smoke. And fully like cinnamon raisin bread baking in the room note.

I smoked a tin of that McClelland made Blakenly Bayou Slices, but got it the same time as my 1st tin of McCl Beacon Extra. And the Beacon Extra suited my palate much better, so I may not get any more Blakenlys. Too many tobaccos and so little time.

Well, whatever you do, don't sell off all the tobaccos you've accumulated that aren't your favorites. Hang on to them. Tastes change and , even if they don't, you won't be sad you have them.

I saw an 8 year old tin of McConnell's Scottish Flake listed on 4Noggins site last year priced at $109.00. That blend I have read is supposed to age to something unbelievable. It's a weird blend. A VaPer with burley. A mild version of OJK?
