C&D's Chenet's Cake. Was at the tobacco shop today and my brother pointed out two tins bulging from fermentation. Tin date July 2017. Never tried it before and torn between tearing into it now or letting it age more.
I hope you like LOVE perique... :lol:
Heck, I've been known to smoke perique straight. Not often, but every once in a blue moon.

Still in the can for now. Don't know if it will sit there for 7 more years, but I don't need it right this minute.
Do you know of an inexpensive straight perique blend? I saw some for $64 for a pound, which is more than I'd like to pay if possible.

No, I don't. Perique tends to be a comparatively expensive tobacco, as it's only produced in a rather small region in batches each year and has a unique curing process.

Thanks, I'll see if I can find some on discount.

Clearly the EMP Match isn't. Just Early Morning Match. Aromatic. Drying some out now.

I had many tins of various English / Latakia blends. Since age isn't a big deal I didn't worry about it. Then I lost my Lat mojo. For quite a while.

The recent box pass had some ancient Presbyterian dated back to the 17th Century that I could not pass up.

Mojo be back, baby!

After that tin I popped some 965 and skipped down the road.

That tin came to an end and I checked the cellar and no light lats at all. Zero.

Therefore, tonight I ordered:
Pete EMP
Pete 965
Presbyterian
H&H Signature Olde Tyme Swirl
and for dessert - Russ' Fudge Cake

Don't run out of light English Blends, Brothers. mmm-k?

I was all out of MB H&H Bold Kentucky so I stopped into the local shop and they had some the clerk told me how much I owed...it was 3 times as much as I had thought it should be. I paid for it and he handed me the tin, and I realized it was the 3.5 oz tin...OH...:)

This shop is a special place and I would pay that just because they offer so much more than just tobacco cigars and accessories. Actually the price was less than I would have paid for the same with shipping from P&C...so glad I bought it locally

Thanks! War Horse is becoming a favorite for sure. The PS 41 is a new one, hoping it can be my fishing/working smoke this year with PA being scarce.

I stopped into the local B&M and picked up the only tin they had of Lakeland Dark. I got it home and I noticed there was no pop when I opened the tin and it was dry as dust... I put it in a flat tupperware container and misted some distilled water on it...I just tuned it over and misted more distilled water on it. Its starting to come back. They would have givem me a replacement, but they didn't have anymore of this...and they are good folks...it will be fine.

Fantastic tobacco! I have roughly 3 pounds of it in the cellar. I dont smoke it much due to the rarity of it.

Update when you get it rehydrated, I'm curious to know how it is for you.
