Me, neither. But for whoever bought it I am sure they will enjoy every single sip.

How many sips in a 100g tin? What do you figure? About 10 cents a sip? 25 cents?

Sounds about right. 33 bowls from the 100 g tin = $7'ish per pipe

Too true.

I wrote sip instead of puff due to it being happy hour and I had been sipping a Bourbon.

Meh, I wrote what I wrote because I was the only sober guy in a patio covered with drunks.

Sip, puff, drag, pull, or inhale away.

I figure the guy that spent 225 clams on a tin of tobacco can call it Sally for all I care. :D

I sold about 25 tins of Christmas Cheer way back via Pipestud. I think 2 or 3 were 1992. Most were from the earliest years. Sigh...

This, gentlemen, is what it feels like when doves cry.

I don't know, I may have bought one or more of those tins.

I've really enjoyed all of the CCs, although a few of the years were difficult to keep lit. I think I have 2 or 3 tins left of the more recent years. I usually will pop a tin during the holiday season and it'll last until spring.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

I've got some old tins of that... not 1992 but early aughts. I should see what I can get for them.
