Re: Am I Missing Something?

I scrolled down to the bottom of the listing, and he/she has a dozen or so similar listings. I suppose there’s no law against it. Caveat emptor!

Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

My big sis in London came through. It's not a pretty picture, but it completes the set.

Am I Missing Something?

Was looking on eBay to see how much a tin of Dunhill Elizabethan was going for, and I came across something which I find completely incomprehensible. Basically it's a few tins of discontinued baccy for $1,200. Am I missing something, or is this a massive ripoff? Check it out - https://tinyurl.com/ya...

Re: Sealed Bag Longevity Question

I live in New Orleans, a place that is known for its humidity. From what I've read, Portland, OR isn't in a desert climate. I don't pay any attention to jarring or storage. Where I live, the ambient air humidity takes care of itself. I keep my cigars in humidors but I don't fret over keeping my cig...

Any locking Tupperware with a rubber seal will work good. The heavy plastic bags bulk comes in are very good as well, ziplock not so much
Nice one!

I’ve never bothered to count how many Bowles I get from a 50g tin myself, with a tin costing $10 - $12 on average. How. Much do you think it costs you for s bowl?
Figure about 3 g per bowl. A 50 g tin is probably 16 or 17 bowls.
That's 5.5 AUD which equates to $4 USD - That's beyond belief

Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

I'm green with envy because none of those blends are available here in Aus. thanks to our draconian plain packaging laws & outrageous taxes. (Now $88 for 50g. It will be $100 for 50g in a year or so) Due to my circumstances, I encourage those of you who still have choice at reasonable prices, to st...

Re: Latest Tobacco Purchase 2018

For shame Well, considering how little I smoke, and how many other good tobaccos there are out there, it will most probably take me many many years before this lot has been smoked. If in 2028 I fancy sharing a few bowls of Night Cap with friends at the pipe club, or stuffing my pipe with a Navy Rol...
