PA is the backbone of my pipe smoking experience. I will be given tins as gifts, or purchase them on occasion as finances permit, but they serve as accents and variety to the PA. Nothing really replaces it.

This reminds me, the tub on my desk is getting dangerously low, may need to stop on the way home tonight and pick up another...

I can buy it locally. One of the strip mall style tobacco shops (mostly cigarettes, machine cigars, RYO, and vaping stuff) in Pontiac carries a decent selection of "drug store" tobacco. They also carry Parodi cheroots, so that's a bonus.

So, I guess it is absent from your Wal-Mart too.

Interestingly enough, it seems to depend on the Walmart. There are two Walmarts in the B/N area and another one in Pontiac. I don't believe I've ever seen it in the B/N, though I have occasionally seen tubs in the Pontiac location. Not recently though.

That's so odd. I can buy it in grocery stores here.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

I love Prince Albert. I honestly don’t know why I ever smoked anything else. Carter Hall is better, but not by much, and it’s harder to find.

Years ago I said bad things about PA. My taste have changed dramatically. I'll have to give it another, more fair, shot.
