Local cigar shop carried a couple of 4TH Gen tins so to support them I picked up this.

Most of my cellar remains in the States, but I occasionally have a few tins brought down....but I got a special treat recently. A Dominican friend gave me about a pound of Andullo, a Dominican tobacco that has been compressed in thatch tubes called yaguas. The result is deeply pungent and quite potent - too much so for me. I've been mixing it into other things to experiment. It works similarly to perique in that it plays nicely in small doses with Virginias. Nothing world-changing so far, but worth trying just for the experience I reckon.

Heard a lot of great things about Country Squire so I picked up a few of their blends. Some Old Toby because I’m a big LOTR fan, some Parson’s Blend because I’m a Pastor and some Indian Outlaw because I’m part Native American!

I've perused their house blends on their website a few times now, but never ordered from them. I listen to their podcast regularly and enjoy it quite a bit - I remember JD likening Shepherd's Pie to Frog Morton, and Hunting Creek was compared to Frog Morton's Cellar.

Will be ordering a couple more 500g boxes of Gawith, Hoggarth, & Co. Brown Flake (unscented) from 4Noggins soon as I'm down to my last 1/2 pint jar. It's my very 1st bowl in the morning everyday, so I go through a lot of it. Be nice if 4Ns could throw up another of their rare 10% off sales to save a few bucks.

I just added that to my wish list. The description at tobaccoreviews.com looks good.

Been wanting to try this for awhile now, got two as I don’t often see it in stock and figure worse case scenario it would be good trade fodder if I didn’t care for it.

I won this 2003 tin of McClelland's Ashton Brindle Flake on eBay on the cheap and am quite excited about it. This the seller's pic and I can see that the tin is pretty swollen for its not flush on the table...
