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:

I've got a pretty good stash of FVF.

By the way, Goose, I agree with you about PS Luxury Twist Flake being a great hot weather smoke. I've got a lot of that jarred. Considering the forecast for the next few weeks, I may just wait on opening a tin of FVF.

Just bought 3tins of Stonehenge and noticed that it was the #1 selling tinned tobacco at Smokingpipes.

I think that's because if it's re-release which was a couple of days ago. I ordered some and it arrived today.

No.

Read the description, reviews and the pipe community "chatter."

It is supposed to be a regularly available item from now on, but this reissue is selling out rapidly and it may not be available again for a while. If I had smoked it and liked it I'd have ordered a lot. If I'd already smoked it and not liked it I wouldn't have ordered any. But given the uncertainty about future availability, I ordered three tins.

If I like it, great!
If not, I'll likely pass it on to my son.

From the description and the reports I suspect it's in my wheelhouse.

Sounds like the right thing to do. I, too, had read the "news" release on Stonehenge, and Jocose said he would send me a pipe full to try.

Six tins of Peterson's Connoisseur's Choice, from Cigars International's 20% off sale. A wonderful, luscious fruity aromatic Durango Pipe had sent me a sample of, and it was very, very good.

Thanks, Fainn, for bring our attention to this sale.

It took me forever to find this thread. I bought an ounce of Father Dempsey's blend and an ounce of Blend for Cary Grant. Dempsey's blend is supposedly based on and rumored to be even better than 965. I must, absolutely must, find suitable replacements for Aperitif and 965. Less than $20 for 8 ounces if I like it. Too bad I had to buy from those sorry S. O. B.'s who didn't hire me.

With Christmas Cheer out of the mix this year it just seemed odd not making a summer time McClelland purchase, so I bought a few tins of their 40th Anniversary blend to put on the shelf next to to the CC.

Oh, and a bit of McC's 2000 Fragrant Matured Cake for day to day goodness.

4 oz. of bulk Boswell's Piper's Pleasure to smoke at school for a little aromatic variety.
That, and I wanted to order something from Boswell's to get another box of their matches!

Are the matches explosive or what? Genuine willy-pete matches, with warnings.

They're the magic matches required to get proper flavor out of Boswell's tobacco.

They're nice to leave where I have pipes in case one of my Zippos has gone dry.
They're included free of charge, which is nice.

(Plus, the boxes make good props for pipe photos.)
