Latest two were Esoterica Pembroke and Penzance - they are some of my old favorites!

Also bought Butera Pelican which I was very disappointed it. I had heard wonderful things about this blend but it's very flat compared to the Esotericas I am use to.

Escudo Navy Deluxe. Those little coins of smokey goodness are great anytime. While not my every day go-to blend, it makes for a nice change of pace from my daily Autumn Evening.

It is a good "old school" Virginia/Oriental blend. Click Here to see the reviews from www.tobaccoreviews.com.

Well today I picked up a few ounces of night cap to try. Man I feel way outclassed by you guys. Everyone buys a lot of tins at a time, but it is just not something i can afford to do right now..

Just ordered:

Caminetto Barolo

All of them are supposed to be a little odd so I am sure I will love them.
