...and also half-a-pouch of Bourbon Street. Re the Bourbon Street? I ain't saying a word. You guys each be sure to try a bowl, I think there's enough there in the pouch.
Is the the House of Windsor Bourbon Street?

Yes it is. Cube cut, taste mostly of Virginia's, but its a pretty old looking pouch so who knows how it used to taste.

Here is a picture of the tampers I will add to the box. The other picture is of a tamper I made for myself. It is Osage Orange, which is similar to hickory. It is fun to use, but a little heavy, at two and a half pounds.

Indeed. Those look great - I regularly use my Winton tamper from the 2020 (or was it 2019?) box pass - it's functional, but these new ones look a lot prettier.

Thank you sir!

One of my favorite tampers is a Winton .357 magnum with a couple of BBs in the casing. the gentle rattle makes for a great fidget tool as well as a nice looking tamper. I use it so much that it actually has cake building up.

Still, be careful of the pipe you use. There's still a bit of ghost in there.

Sorry I missed this. I would have kicked in some more. The Bourbon Street is right from the HoW factory in Red Lion, PA. I think of it as a US Lakeland. I think it has Rose Geranium, among other things.

Regarding the tobacco - as a lover of lakelands my level of interest in the stuff has just increased.

Regarding missing the box pass - I don't see why we can't amend the list to squeeze you in somewhere. This thing is just getting started.

Not sure I want my own stuff back. Maybe I’ll pass this year. I am very interested in people’s thoughts though.

I definitely detect some florals, but no soapiness as has been suggested on TRs. Thanks again, it's a vintage pouch of tobacco.

It was John Mitchell’s favorite. He had to ask the prison store to stock it for him.

I forgot to request that the extra long tamper should go back to our hero, who started this box pass.

I don't have any more of my spiffy thick small zip lock bags I like to use in the box pass.

I'll need to come up with a work around.

And a cigar.

I feel pulled in my soul that I should add a cigar.
