I will debate about it just long enough to let them sell out.

Well, they're out of Pembroke, but now they're showing Dunbar and Margate 2oz tins. Balkan Sobrani is in stock too.

This sucks. I broke down and blew my tobacco allowance on a tin of Pembroke as I wanted to try their english blends, really I wanted to try Margate, but thought this was as close as I would get. Should have waited and according to the call I just made it is too late to change my order.

FWIW, my local tobacconist says that he thinks that Pembroke is the exact same thing as Margate, but just with the cognac topping added to it. I haven't smoked Pembroke, but I just opened a tin of Margate 3 days ago. After smoking a single bowl of it I can say that it is indeed my favorite english. I've had and enjoyed Frog Morton, Frog Morton's Cellar, Dunhill MM965, Nightcap, and Presbyterian - all good englishes, but Margate takes the cake.

Like you, I tried to call and add a tin of Margate to my Pembroke order that shows as processed, but not yet shipped. They wouldn't do it. I decided I wasn't going to spend another +$20 (after shipping) for a single tin. IDC if it is Esoterica. There's always some kind of special/limited release of something to get excited about every month or two. I blew my wad on 5 tins of Carolina Red Cake the day that SmokingPipes announced it - and that was less than a month ago.

Besides - I figure that if I go ahead and overspend on tobacco now, in a week I'll get an email telling me that one of my beloved Gawith Hoggarth blends is in stock for the first time in months - then where would I be? :lol:

And more money spent on tobacco for me means less money spent on the kiddos - christmas and whatnot. Plus, my daughter's birthday is 12/31. Estoterica dropping right now is a wonderful AND terrible thing for me

I just tried to switch it. I have three kids and Christmas is coming so actually dropping the $18 was probably outside the budget but it won't break it. I can't order another tin so this will be fine and I will enjoy trying it this Christmas. (If I can wait till then to pop it, I have terrible self control and after all that is what jars are for.)
