Dunhill EM has definitely moved up on the list, along with the East India Co Officers Club. Bob's Chocolate, and Russ's Candy Cane Coco are on the list also, along with Lane 1Q.
If I had to name the two perineal faves though, it would be Iwan Ries 3 Star Blue, and China Black Vanilla.
Surely I must have been drinking much too heavily when I made these posts, and-or misunderstood the thread.

Right now the five I'm smoking include Raku, Dark Star, and various McC English and orientals. Fusiliers Ration and Old Ironsides are up there too, having just finished off my only tins of those.
Are you drinking tonight? I can't make that add up to five.
I hate five, so I went seven.
Good man.
I still can't figure out your perineum measures into knowing its favorite tobaccos.
Obviously. I mean, you can't even figure out how to say it.....
Well, I don't many chances to talk about you guys' perinea.

Not that I want to.

Got a bad box of GH Scotch Flake that was tainted with Lakeland essense, so I Xed it out and added another McClelland blend

The trick to this game is misdirection. Or not. A good fisherman never gives away his/her best spot. Especially these days, when certain "spots" are disappearing.

But for a newb like me who has not even tried five different quality tobaccos this is a mean trick. I read through this to help with what to order next . . . so if you leave out your all time number one ok, but, give me at least five good ones to consider. :wavey:

Sure no prob.. just within a year or so I started being more reserved, when folks began ordering 20 or 30 tins of what had recently been posted. Suddenly favs were showing up out of stock. Its a difficult thing for me because I really do like sharing. I could say much more but I got go for now. Good luck.

No worries, and there ain't no way i could order 20 to 30 tins of anything. Plus, I am still at the discovery stage and have no idea what I like so no idea what I would order tins of to age and enjoy in the years to come. Though my next order will probably contain the 100g tin of Marlin Flake, half for now and half to jar up in the closet for a rainy year to come.
