Just went to refill a small jar from work with Piper’s Pleasure from a large jar at home and realized I was nearly out.

Talk to me about it because after a couple few bowls I am still trying to warm up to this aged Fillmore. Seems, maybe, 12 years was too long.

Three 8 ounce tins of G.L. Pease (Fog City Selection) Fillmore, a Virginia--Perique broken flake. Been purchasing a couple few blends from the predominately all Virginia Fog City Selection because they all have long legs and will age beautifully. This will give me some very good tobacco to smoke once all my McClelland is gone....

With great influence from the high praises from Goose, on a whim I bought a 100g tin of McClelland 40th Anniversary from a guy in a tobacco group I'm in on Facebook. With shipping it set me back $70. OUCH. This stuff better be good.

For that much it should reach up and tickle your bum.




It is really good stuff, though.

Oh, it IS good. Very, very good. McClelland's parting gift to the pipe world. I have bought many tins on eBay at the time of McClelland's closing knowing full well it would never be cheaper.
