DL, there should be enough tampers for each person to have one.

Glad you got the box. Enjoy the contents!
Okie dokie! Figured so. More coming.

Gentlemen.

This is a well seeded Box Pass.

Above was my first sample with the tamper of choice. Look at that baby!

More pending.

Nice! Yeah that Sliced Black - an excellent smoke. I was asking WSerad about it and he kept calling it "rope". Maybe it was rope 20 years ago, but it's sliced now, and it's good.

We're gonna miss tomorrow's ship date. I need to go there to get a box. Then go back, with the box. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I don't have one already. I'll get 2 or 3hopefully tomorrow.

I'll go at lunch!

Not so far this week.

This exhausts the ready to ship inventory.

Thanks to all who participated or were targeted by the various CPS Tobacco Fairy representatives we have fluttering around here.

Shouldn't be any more than 60 miles. The way the USPS has been for the last year or two though - I'd say anything can happen. :lol:

Summer Box Pass 2021?

Post by Adam Z » Sat Jun 12, 2021 9:03 am

The box has arrived. Wow… There are currently 33 bags containing anywhere from a couple bowls worth of tobacco on up to the better part of a pound of Luxury Twist Flake. Also currently 3 tins. That box was chock-full.

Fortunately the pie made the trip without incident. I’m not much of a pie guy, so I think I’ll send it on down the line - thoughts and prayers for Mustangii.

Winton’s tamper-crafting has gone to the next level since the previous box pass.

Will report back with takes/puts (and pics).

Also, Mustangii - pm me your mailing address.

EDIT: So far I've decided I'm taking the tin of Hyde Park (might be the same tin I put in a previous box pass 2 years ago!) and replacing it with a tin of Sutliff Eastfarthing. Taking the Perdomo 20th Anniversary cigar & the Hemingway Classic - replacing them with two Cohiba Macassar toros and a (unlabled/no-band) Christian Cortez Dominican puro corona, and a My Father Tobaccos Baez toro. Also putting in a 1980 Peterson 01 with sterling band from my collection - this was my foray into the p-lip. Nothing wrong with the pipe, but I don't smoke it anymore because I decided that I'm not fond of the p-lip. Maybe one of you guys will enjoy it. Putting in a bag containing Beck's Ol' Limey Bastard purchased at B&B Tobacconist of Asheville, NC (but also available online via 4Noggins) - this is a highly acclaimed match to the ORIGINAL Dunhill MM965. https://www.tobaccoreviews.com/blend/33 ... ey-bastard

And a couple ounces of a blend labelled as Six Virginias - this came from my local shop. It was a house blend that they used to make using McClelland bulk virginias.

Yeah, Houston we might have a small problem. This box was packed to the gills when I got it, and I'm in the process of segregating bags of what I want to try, and putting back in the box all the stuff that I'm not interested in, and it's quickly becoming apparent that between the Sutliff tin taking up more space than the Peterson tin, adding the Peterson pipe in it's original box, increasing the cigar count of the box by 2 sticks, and adding two bags that combined for 5 or 6 ounces of tobacco, that this is not all going to fit in here. At this point I'm faced with either obtaining a larger box & increasing the shipping costs (which I'm ok with doing - this is a "medium flat rate box" - I'm assuming that there is still a larger size USPS flat-rate box still) or taking a bit more of the bagged tobacco than what I had originally planned in order to offset the space taken up by my "puts".

Take huge samples! I nabbed 3 fruits full of 3 dif bulk blends. And there's still a gob! I almost nabbed that small bowled (was it a Parker?) pipe.
